Really? That's so generous of you. Thanks

Say, won't you be taking the Palm Beach? Personally, I'd love to zip down on that sweet stretch in the wee hours.

What say guys?
Amen. I'd really love if we'd move around in a convoy. Not just from Lonavala to Pawna but on the E'way too. We can always ease up the leash on our rides on the way back or after the Bhatan tunnel enroute.

I suggest the stretch of the Lake (Pond) just ahead of Training Ship Chanakya Between Neral and Palm Beach.
Exactly. Although Palm Beach might be a detour for Mumbaikars, Navi Mumbaiites can always rendezvous here.

Actually, parking might be an issue since this meeting point is home to tour buses and cabs too. But then again, since it'd be early morning, I reckon there won't be any problem.

McD just before express way - It is crowded always. There will be buses and trucks and it is always messy.

Palm Beach road as Ritesh suggested is a good idea. Near the pond or little further ahead, opposite NRI Complex.

Another option is McD in Kharghar (Littleworld Mall). No detour for Mumbikars, only thing is to take a right below Kharghar flyover. The mall is on the right side of the highway. In the morning the whole parking lot will be empty, as McD is the only shop open at that time. We had used this as a meeting point for another meet and there was no issues.

No problem. Where do you stay in Nerul?
If you want we can go back to Palm beach and zip down.
Send me a PM with your location and no.

Me and safaroy are yet to finalise if we are coming in the Safari or on our bikes. The pleasant weather makes for a nice motorcycling break. So most probably we will be riding down to the venue. In that case, we will use the Old Highway and catch up with you all at Pawna Dam.

I am game for the old highway as well, the e-way is just too monotonous and boring especially till Lonavla!

How about meeting up at the Shell fuel bunk next to Indira College, that way no one will have to turn towards Wakad if coming from Balewadi, Baner, Chandano Chowk side.

Also where are all the members? I don't see a reason behind this low level of enthusiasm.

Both suggestions sound good albeit with the Kalamboli McD's being a familiar place, it's gonna be favored. As I mentioned earlier, peeps from Navi Mumbai can meet up initially near NMMC and then near the E'way MCD's whilst those from Mumbai would assemble directly at the latter meeting point.

Ok then I think for Pune members the Shell fuel bunk would be the most appropriate! But I am always open to options.

For now,
Sunday, 7:30, Wakad Shell Fuel Bunk, Next to Indira College, and Joshi wade wale on the highway!

So all Mumbai BHPians,
The options to gather up before the expressway are:
1). Palm Beach road opp NRI complex/adjacent the Pond.
2). Mc'Donalds before the expressway.


I personally vote for Palm Beach as there won't be traffic, good scenery and we'll get a great drive together on one of New Bombay's finest roads!

I don't have a problem for either of them. Just that I don't know the Palm Beach road so well. Will go through Google maps for that.
