I started the ride by 6.15/30 in the morning. Another rider was going to join me but he was running late, so I decided to ride on. There was a guy couple on a Unicorn who were riding to Pune for first time. After asking for route, they got little confident and tried to give me a company. After they cut my line nastily near Panvel toll post, I decided to zoom ahead and leave them behind.
Roads were empty and I reached Lonavala quickly. Unfortunately the bhor ghat patch is under repairs so climbing up was not much fun. Pune team was waiting when I reached RK. We waited for fellow rider Sachin to join in and we refilled our tanks.
We started off to Aambey valley route and it was full of smooth tar and nice curves. But it ended shortly. We took a photo break on a plateu along the route. After this Nalin and me exchanged our horses for a short run. Riding his R15 was fun. But it was riding a mini-cycle for me. With its good braking and low height, its a no brainer to guess why its so good in ghats :)
