Rajgad – Torna – Raigad; beauties like Baglan range; forested patches of Koyna valley and so on

Posted by itrekz on September 19, 2008

It has been lot of biking, monsoons trails and some long trudges (Panhala-Vishalgad and Lonavala-Bhimashankar..both in excess of 70 kms) in the monsoons this year..

Well the monsoons are on the fading lanes and October fast approaching – hopefully – will allow us for some really good range treks with clear scenic views.. a much needed change to fill our visions, which is fogged with mist during the monsoons…

Welcome ranges, panaromic views and some long and tough ones

These will includes ardous ones like Rajgad – Torna – Raigad; beauties like Baglan range; forested patches of Koyna valley and so on.. stay connected!

Bike ride plus trek near Roha: 14th Sep

Posted by itrekz on September 7, 2008

Next weekend, Sunday – 14th of Sep would see a bike ride and trek to forts of Avchitgad and Ghosalgad forts near Roha. The bike ride would cover a distance of Kalyan – Panvel – Roha or Mumbai/Thane – Panvel – Roha. 

The total riding distance from Kalyan would be approximately 110-115 kms one side. For those coming from Mumbai add another 30/35 kms to it: approximately 150 kilometres depending on the route taken.

We will embark on Saturday (13th September night) and return back on Sunday (14th Sep).. covering approximately a total distance of 250-300 kms and two forts. We would also try and squeeze in a visit to Mandad caves (if the time permits without delaying our return to Mumbai).. depending on the overall speed.. thats just if it is feasible.

Interested ones can drop in an email at itrekz@gmail.com or leave a reply here.. (emails preferred)

If you are going to ride.. and have your own bike.. it is never going to be an issue, if you are a pillion and are looking for a biker to ride with, please allow some time to accommodate by replying at the earliest. For further queries.. mail at the above mentioned email address…
