For Mumbai Team

Attachment 1264520

Here its further divided in two parts.

Attachment 1264521

People who want to join us at Borivali, should reach the Borivali Meeting Point by 5:45am.
They can gather just out side Kanakia Spaces Contry Park, Opp. Tata Steel, Near Springfield Restaurant, Borivali East as shown on the map.
We will leave by 6:00am from here to reach the Thane Meeting Point.

Attachment 1264522

People who want to join us at Mulund, should reach the Mulund Meeting Point by 5:45am.
They can gather under the Flyover just before the Mulund Check Naka as shown on the map.
We will leave by 6:00am from here to reach the Thane Meeting Point.

Attachment 1264523

All from the Mumbai Team should reach the Thane Meeting Point by 6:30am.
Which is just after the Bridge after the Kharegaon Jakat Naka as shown in the map.
We will Proceed from here by 6:45am.

Attachment 1264524

The Mumbai team will halt at the Breakfast Point.
This is just before the Left Turn for Titwala Mandir, after you cross Kalyan.
Here we can have a Tea Break and anyone wants to have the snacks can also go ahead.

By this time the Nasik and Pune Teams should also been on the way.
We understand their position and move ahead to the Final Meeting Point for all at Murbad Before the FUN DRIVE Begins!

The Mumbai Drive is about 135 kms and should take about 2:45 hrs with out any stop.
So have an advantage of one hour

Attachment 1264525

Hyperlink ==> Please use this link to save the directions using Google Maps



For Nasik Team

Attachment 1264526

This is a rather longer route for the Nasik Team but the Most Scenic, with Very Good Roads, and Without any Traffic.
They Should Start by 6:00am from Nasik and will have to Move towards Igatpuri.
They can have a Light Breakfast at Manas at Igatpuri or Dalvi Darbaar just after Igatpuri.
Continue ahead as shown in the map and take the left turn to SH79 just before Shahapur.
This is where the FUN starts already for them. I've used this route in the past, which is actually a longer route from Mumbai, just to avoid the Bad Roads and Heavy Traffic in Kalyan. (This is now much better - Mumbai Team should not worry now)
Once they reach Murbad, which ideally shoud be around 8:00am-8:30am, they can Stop immediately just outside Murbad ST Depot. The Mumbai Team Should have reached here already.

Attachment 1264527

The Nasik Drive is about 180 kms and should take about 3:30 hrs in total without any halts.

Hyperlink ==> Please use this link to save the directions using Google Maps



For Pune Team

Attachment 1264528

This is again The Longest rout of all, after being closest to the Venue. They can take the shorter route back home.
Have chosen this route for them so that they also enjoy the Waterfalls, which they won't if they use the shorter route.
They should also start by 6:00am.
Take a Breakfast halt maybe at the Food Mall on the Expressway.
And get off the Expressway after Lonavala towards Khopoli. I have used this route to Reach Malshej from Lonavala, and its a very quick route.
Once they reach Murbad, which ideally shoud be around 8:00am-8:30am, they can Stop immediately just outside Murbad ST Depot. The Mumbai Team Should have reached here already.

Attachment 1264529

The Pune Drive is the Longest at about 210 kms, but they have the shortest route back home. Their travel time will be 3:45 hrs without any halts.

Hyperlink ==> Please use this link to save the directions using Google Maps



Requesting everyone to use the Hyperlinks given for the routes so that they can guide you with proper directions.

Alternatively, you can also download the Waze App from https://www.waze.com/
Its available for all Smart Phones. And can also navigate without any network.

This is the best way for us to track the wareabouts of everyone involved in the Drive, once the drive is shared amongst those present.

For any Queries, please feel free to contact me on 9820107016 or simply just PM me.

Requesting someone from the Pune Team to come up and Volunteer to be the Coordinator for the Pune Team. Please PM me your contact details.

Thanks.
Just update to the following Meeting Points

New Mulund Meeting Point

Mumbai & Pune BHPians, drive to Malshej Ghat, 27th July. Final Plan on page 12-new-mulund-meeting-point.jpg

This is Just after the Mulund Toll Naka on the EEH where the road suddenly widens up towards the left. There's a lot of space.


New Thane Meeting Point

Mumbai & Pune BHPians, drive to Malshej Ghat, 27th July. Final Plan on page 12-new-thane-meeting-point.jpg

This is just after the Majiwada Junction, turn left towards McDonalds at Lodha Paradise. Ample Space for all.
MIND IT : THIS IS NOT A SNACKS HALT

Thanks VVB8530 for this idea.

Going to Panchgani this weekend after a gap of five years I guess. I have been to Malshej ghat just once and that time I had gone riding with a few friends. So this would be the first time I would be driving down.

Looking forward to more updates and confirmation on date and time.
I Guess you will meet us at Borivali?

The only problem is that I will be reaching Mumbai by flight and hence wont have the most important thing for a drive - car.
Let me see if I can convince a couple of friends in Mumbai to join in with their cars. Will update the list if I succeed. Fingers crossed.
I guess you need a ride, Viper id coming Solo from Town, he can pick you up. He can be on the EEH. Do let us know if you have any ride already.

Thumbs up re: Mumbai & Pune BHPians! Monsoon Drive to Malshej Ghat, 27th July 2014. Final Plan on p

Not to intimidate anyone and neither to dampen the spirit of meet and ride, request all vehicle owners riding to Malshej Ghat to be extra careful. Although ride to the ghats in monsoon is a treat in itself, danger lurks in form of reckless drivers, poor visiblity and many other factors. Recently there has been a major accident in the area and people have got hurt.

Drive safe, be safe and have a safe meet.

Exactly the reason why we will want everyone to be together in a group, and strictly no alcohol.
