yeah true nitroxx the new route would be a much safer option and we would reach faster if we take the expressway route

Nitroxx and kooldude

its better to take the old route as it is sunday and u guys are leaving early...there is a chance of you running into hoards of sumo's and qualises that carry people for picnics.

besides the old route is much more scenic , for your photosessions and the ghat is better than that on the expressway ! and yeah you cross ramakants too where you get some mean vada-pav and stuff to munch upon (IMO -its better than the expressway food malls)

cheers

Update : My brother may become a proud father in the next 24 hours. My joining this drive is highly doubtful, but if I can make it - I will most certainly be at the designated spot at 6:45 a.m.

Read bikefreak's report(sbk's day out) elsewhere on the forum. He mentions that the old road has indeed become very good....
