Four Hyderabad women bikers have set off on their 17000 km long road trip titled 'Road to Mekong'. The seven-week-long expedition will see Jai Bharathi, ASD Shanthi, Shilpa Balakrishnan and Piya Bahadur ride across seven South-East Asian nations through the newly-laid India-Myanmar-Thailand Trilateral Highway on Bajaj Dominor bikes. They plan to ride across India, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia. They will visit 19 UNESCO World Heritage Sites across 7 countries and promote tourism.
The flag off ceremony took place on February 11, 2017 from Paryatak Bhavan, Begumpet, Hyderabad at 7.00 am in the morning. Friends, family and fellow bikers were present in large numbers to support them.
The 'Bikernis', who have embarked on many trips in India over the years, say that the desire "to push their limits and seek adventure in foreign lands" was the driving force behind this expedition.
Throttle Team wishes them good luck for this expedition!!!
