Dehradun, 29 Jul: A Doon based Tri-Service group of four adventure loving veterans have banded together under the tagline ‘Whimsical Veterans’ for a Northern Ladakh Motorcycle Expedition. They are Colonel Rakesh Singh Sidhu (Retd) (65); Captain Nandan Singh Bisht (Retd), (65); Commodore Ravi Nautiyal (Retd), (57); and Navy Captain Anoop Chauhan (Retd), (57).
They will be riding a Royal Enfield Interceptor, a Royal Enfield Classic, and 2 Honda CB 350 motorcycles and plan to undertake a 3200 kilometre, 18 day motorcycle odyssey to the remote peripheries of the Great Karakoram and Ladakh mountain ranges, with the aim of ‘showing the Indian Tricolour to strengthen sovereign territorial rights over the Northern peripheral regions of Ladakh coveted by the neighboring countries’.
The scheduled flag off by Maj Gen Sanjeev Khatri, GOC, Uttarakhand Sub Area, is on 4 August at 8 a.m. from Lal Gate War Memorial, Garhi Cantt.
