  1. Travel light: Carry spares and only the things that you would need for the ride . carrying unwanted luggage will only slow down your ride.
  1. Carry Paper maps and GPS: One should always plan the route ahead to make sure that you do not digress from the main route, especially in the mountains where one route could take you to some other destination and making you lose a lot of time and unnecessary confusion and hurries to go back on schedule.
  1. Start early, finish early: Always plan to start your day early so that you could avoid the traffic in the city and other few cities around your home. This also gives you choice to move ahead of your planned destination incase you have covered a lot of destination in the first half. Another important thing is that in case of a tyre puncture / or any delay in plans you ensure you reach well before the day ends to your destination.

  1. Drink water regularly: if you drink less water you brain get less fluid and in turn your ride becomes sluggish. Water also helps you keep awake especially on those times when you plan to cover some stretch of road in one go and feeling tired.
  1. Use social media to enrich your trip for yourself and others: Use apps like Transroader for others to follow you and well to make sure that you can keep your journey interesting and make sure that there are more people who are inspired by your trips.
