Royal Enfield continued the 2014 rides calendar with the third edition of the Royal Enfield Tour of Bhutan. One of the marquee international rides organized by the company for Royal Enfield customers, the Tour of Bhutan is a 7 day motorcycling experience that will take the riders through some of the most scenic and picturesque terrains in the Land of Dragons.
The tour will traverse through the snow-capped mountain peaks in the eastern Himalayan ranges, namely the black mountains and the Shivaliks. This year, 20 riders will journey through the scenic hilly terrains and winding roads into Bhutan. Riding on Royal Enfield motorcycles, these riders will be cruising through the country roads lined with orchards and rice fields, dotted with tiny villages and bustling marketplaces. Traffic on the roads is minimal but the terrain is challenging enough ensuring that the ride never gets boring. The participants start from Siliguri in West Bengal and ride to Thimpu from Darjeeling through Phuentsolling, Paro, Bumathang, Tashigang and finally return to Guwahati covering a distance of 1,500 kilometers.
Shaji Koshy, Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Royal Enfield commented, “The Tour of Bhutan is one of the most scenic rides in our tour calendar that promises unique sights and sounds of the Himalayan region. This marquee ride in the eastern region will have great roads and sweeping turns in the midst of picturesque landscapes that will provide a ‘pure motorcycling’ experience to each of our participants.” Royal Enfield regularly organises rides across the country to bring together Royal Enfield enthusiasts from across the country and share the experience of riding together in a non-competitive manner.
