Road Trip to Harihareshwar 5th - 7th April 2013

It was me who had been given an opportunity to bike a lot ;-) Hell Lot !!!  Calculated roughly - 800kms to bike !!

Since I had opted to ride on my R15, I had to bike to Pune (approximately 200km) on Friday night and had to bike the next day too, along to Harihareshwar with my biker buddy Anupam and his avenger. Though I was super excited thinking about the biking and all, the very thought of getting tired was always behind my mind.

Anyways with all high spirits of another great biking trip I left from office early on Friday (5th Apr) at around 8pm. As per the plan, I had to pick Abinash from his office too. So I picked him up from Andheri (near Mumbai Int'l Airport) and we zoomed our way to Pune. We relished our lovely Mac D dinner on our way. Since it was pretty late, I preferred a speed of  approx 70-80kmph and chit chatted with Abinash all the way to Pune. We enjoyed some breaks at Lonavla, had tea and biscuits watched the train pass by us. After around 4hrs we reached the first destination of the trip i.e. Pune, time was 1am. First things first, I called up my parents to inform them that I reached safely. That is what most of us do quite often :)

Everyone joined in by 2am. By everyone I mean my gang, KB3 as we call ourselves, We were busy sharing jokes and other discussions about tomorrow. We were about to take a cab and two bikes. Me and Anupam were the so called sole bikers and we were suggested to take a good nap before taking the brunt of 4hrs of biking in the hot summer the other day ;)

Next day 6:30am, everyone was ready to leave. The cab had reached as per the time and we were all set to leave for Harihareshwar. We left off Wakad,Pune at 7am with all the checks. Refuelled our bikes and biked our way to SH60. We soon found ourselves riding on the patchy Paud road. While those in the cab enjoyed chocolates , beer , ac and the deluxe comfort, me and Anupam were sweating it out on our bikes ;)

Bright and sunny day

 No complaints, we were the ones loving the cool breeze , lovely hills we were biking besides and we were having our own share of fun. Soon the roads expanded and we were surrounded by crops , hills at some distance and other vehicles whizzing past us.

Trip to Harihareshwar - Prologue

Its been days since we ever had a bike trip !!!! :(  Thats what i pinged my dearest friend Anupam on our official chat application - sametime. We always wanted to have a road trip, a harcore road trip !!! Well not exxagerating on that. We all started off on a light discussion regarding the trip, and we hardly cared until it was Thursday. Till then we felt as if the plan is almost called off until Sunil pinged us on watsapp "Guys this weekend trip is on and we are going". It was all part of Sunil's so called bachelors trip and since i wouldnt make it to his marriage, I was keen on having atleast a small gettogether.

I have hardly been able to meet my gang at Pune because of my office work. Finally we all decided to visit Harihareshwar. Harihareshwar is a town in Raigad district)., in Maharashtra, India.

We were planning to go via SH60, so our route was Paud Road -> Mulshi Road -> Tamhini ghat -> Nizampur -> Mangaon -> Harihareshwar. It was around 173 kms far from Wakad where we had to stay on Friday night @ Sunil's place.
