Good IDEA sir ji, I think in future also this method polling must be adopted so that we dont imagine WEST EAST NORTH SOUTH for the desired venue.
I have already casted my vote...Regards

Guys , Am in for the Mumbai meet. Would you believe it this is my first post on t-bhp and am absolutely thrilled to be able to meet fellow bhp-ians. It's been two weeks since I got my 2010 Honda City ( one of the last Urban Titanium City's) and can't wait to share my experience so far. Any location is ok for me..

Bhpians here's my view why we should go for Ambey Valley.
  • We all can have a nice drive through the Express Way towards Ambey Valley.
  • The German Trio has already been there so we know the roads are good.
  • The drive to Ambey Valley covers a total distance of 80 kms from Kalamboli and and time taken is 2 hrs max with nice drive through E-Way.
  • We can head to Ambey Valley in early morning, enjoy scenic drive, have a delicious brunch and head back by 2 pm. So we would be back by 5 pm max.
  • Karnala is just too close, it just doesn't feels like a drive and the traffic(trucks) and road conditions on NH17 is nothing to write about.
  • Regaarding Silvassa, with work going on NH8 by NHAI, there are too many detour and there is heavy truck traffic too, which makes it a bit boring.
  • Cruising on the E-Way will be fun with some twisties encounted while entering Lonavala would be icing on cake.
  • I have voted for Ambey Valley, please join in friends it would sure be fun and Pune bhpians too could join in.

If we drive to Aamby Valley where will we eat? I don't know of any restaurants on that road and entry to Aamby is restricted. If that is where you are going then to eat you will have to go to the old Mumbai Pune highway. Eitherway I don't think platzda and all will be happy with Aamby valley. If you want your 500nm ride then you should agree with platzda kidding.

But 2 hours from Aamby? We made it to Aamby is 45 mins odd from Mac at Kalamboli.

Does anyone have any suggestions for restaurants on the Nasik highway or Silvasa highway?

Speedy or someone knows a good place to eat on Nashik highway.

If we go to Amby, that's what will happen. Some of us will reach 1 hour early no offense, just kidding here

It feels like we are having a Lok Sabha Election. Ambey Valley is winning with 1 vote right now.
Does anyone have any connection through which we could get entry into Ambey Valley City?

German Trio have another drive that would make a hat-trick. Come on friends.

Sir did you mean The Dukes Retreat?
We can drive down from Ambey Valley in the afternoon and have the lunch at Lonavala. After that we can head back homes.

Jokes apart it is best to meet at Mac as usual but early in the morning is Best,so that we can come back to our homes during decent hrs....Rubb Rakhaa.
Hi everybody
Iqbaljee you can put a speed limit say 30 KMPH
After reading all the views wouldnt the spots like Karnala,Lonavala etc be crowded on a sunday?
