Default Mumbai & Pune Team BHP Drive on 30th April 2006.

Fellows

Its been over two months since we did our last drive to Daman in January. It time for another one. Anyone has ideas for a destination? Manaa45 suggested Kashid which a bit ahead of Alibaug. The Kashid beach is a good place to chill out.

So how does the 23rd of April sound ?

Please reply in this thread : whos in whos not . The 23rd of April is quite a distant date so we have enough time to plan

Dippy,
Kashid may be a good destination but the exit road at khopoli from the Express highway to the Bombay Goa highway sux so badly that I will think 10 times before coming for this drive... Its about 30km of torture and mayhem for any car... Think of a location where if possible even the pune guys might be able to join u guyz...
Cheersssss

I second EVO on this one. The road is in a bad state. Can we think of any alternate location?

evo , if you guys think that getting dowm from khopoli and drving 30 kms at speed of 30.40 , it would be better to get to the end of the express way and then take the new road, towards JNPT and alibaug. that would save some destruction for the car.

rest depends on you, but hope to see u .

Why dont we try something different ? Lonavala / Dahanu / Kashid / Alibaug are passe. Lets go on the Nashik route , maybe Malshej , Igatpuri et al.

Hi,

I would still suggest Panchgani via Poona. Nice roads and perfect central place for Poona members to join up. Good weather, strawberry cream/milkshake, Butta(corn), go karting, chappal/shoe shopping. Have lunch at one of the farms.

Max time to reach from Bombay 4.5 hours with small halt for tea.

how about this place called jirad? its off the alibaug road, saves us from the bad alibaug roads you guys took last time and instead provides is with some real nice clean long curves and stuff.
110 kms from bombay. its a small village basically which has this nice lill' restaurant run by a local which serves ethnic food and stuff.
wonderful place and stuff, have done more than a few one day trips to this place as a friend even has a farm-house in the same village.
and if things are favourable there s a pleasant surprise in mind as well.
