The Ramnagar Talao located on the Jogeshwari- Vikhroli Link Road, an arterial road leading out of Mumbai. There is a very very tasty tea shop, next to a petrol pump, where you can wake up to the wonderful ride ahead
The Powai lake is one of the most beautiful spots in Mumbai. The long, beautiful downhill right turn leading to the Eastern Freeway will really boost your rpms and bpms. The early morning sun will warm you up from the inside, and the expansive Freeway will make you soar.There are big cracks on the road in some places, so be alert.
Here comes the tricky bit. Kalyan is known for haphazard traffic, so navigating through the congested town can be a challenge.We suggest you stop for a break on the Sonale-Bapgaon road for a quick snack at of a pakoda and bhajiya stall.
From Kalyan, the NH61 clears out as you enter the heavily-industrialised Murbad. The roads are good, with really fast open straights and bends, so overtaking here should be done with caution. Murbad being full of small and medium industrial units, the truck traffic here is heavy. But you will still enjoy this stretch as you now begin the gradual climb towards our destination.
‘Saral’ means straight in Marathi, which perfectly describes this one-street town. Just kidding of course. Saralgaon, on the NH61, is a welcome respite from the speed and frenzy of Murbad and Kalyan. There is a lovely bridge near a school on the way, which is the best place to stop and shoot photos.
Vaishakhare, further along on the NH61, needs to be ridden to, to be experienced. The curves, the elevations, the scenery and the gently banked roads will make you smile inside your helmets. The Naneghat Trekking point will delight the adventure junkies in your group.
This is where the ride becomes most exciting. High-speed, low-speed, blind, banks, hairpins, sliders, this section has it all. The strain of the journey till now will be forgotten while riding on this stretch . The final uphill right turn to Malshej takes you to the entrance of the old and graceful Flamingo Resort, maintained by the Maharashtra Government. Have a nice lunch sitting in the garden that overlooks the Western Ghats.
