Now that is an interesting drive :). And a nice challenge because, although Roorkee and Pithoragarh are almost on the same latitude (Roorkee's further north :)), there's no straight road. :)

Do you specifically want to go via Banbasa to Pithoragarh? Because that would be somewhat longer than going via Almora.

Anyway, from Roorkee - Haridwar-Najibabad-Nagina-Afzalgarh-Kashipur to Doraha Bazpur
(if there's a way to cross the Ganga from Landhaura-Laksar towards Najibabad, that would be even better)

Thereafter - Rudrapur-Kichha-Sitarganj-Khatima-Banbasa-Tanakpur-Champawat-Lohaghat-Ghat-Pithoragarh

You can check the distances on this map. Work with 50 km an hour for the plains, 30 for the hills.

Shortcuts are jungle roads along the boundaries of Rajaji and Corbett NPs. I think you may not want to use those. :)

As I indicated, a shortcut here is only possible if there's a bridge to cross the Ganga beyond Laksar. This is something you need to check locally with the jeepwalas who ply on the Landhaura/Laksar road. If there's no bridge, you have to go via Haridwar.
