Ride #3 Bhandardara
Date: 18- Aug -2019
Total Distance: 310Km
We were super excited and nervous before this ride as compared to our previous rides. We had more registration of 26 members with 18 bikes and 1 safety car. Our ride started at around 6.00 m from Teen Hath Naka (Meeting point) second meeting point was Kalyan bypass. at sharp 7.30 am at Shree Datta snacks at Padgha to relish on the huge breakfast thali. after breakfast and after click lots of photoghraphs we started back our voyage. We proceeded further through beautiful Kasasra Ghat proceeding towards Igatpuri though the fog clad roads.
After taking a right from the highway, the real scenic beauty starts, its a typical village road not much wide but worth riding. after the bumpy yet beautiful ride, we reached the dam being the month August (rainy season) the dam was overflowing on the road, it was a beautiful sight. We also visited the well knows umbrella falls, being a weekend the place was buzzing with people. After clicking lots of photographs and after having lots of fun with the group around the dam we proceeded for lunch. We were served amazing veg and nonveg food by Rishikesh (one of our friend in Bhandaradara) at hi home. After lunch, we spent some time on the terrace of his house clicking photographs and admiring the lush feils around frim there. We started our journey back home at 4.0pm.
The route back home was through greenery clad mountains and beautiful villages. En route, we took a halt near Bhavali Dam which has a beautifully widespread lake. The whole road is covered by hue and small waterfalls which made our journey back more mesmerizing and memorable. Once back on the main road Kasara Ghat was blocked with traffic but after such an amazing ride through such nature clad surrounding one of the group members complained. Our ride came to an end at 9.30pm with beautiful memories in our hearts to last lifelong.
