I have been riding to Thane for some time now. I was wondering if we could have a group ride to Yeoor hills. Renny, your idea taking shape. I was speaking to Kaushik a few days back, and we thought, lets ride from Kandivili to Yeoor Hills. We were going to do this ride last Sunday, but I remembered Renny's suggestion of doing this ride on 4th or 5th of April. So, we postponed it.
The ride to Thane and back follows this route: -
Charkop- Poisar- S. V. Road- Borivali flyover connector to Borivali East- Western Express Highway- Dahisar Check Naka- Ghodbunder Road (just before reaching the Vasai Creek)- Thane.
We turn around from some distance after crossing Tikuji Ni Wadi. Distance from Charkop comes to 30 km. If we go on past to Yeoor Hills, distance will be about 15 km (I guess) more. The Yeoor hills, Renny tells me, is quite a climb. Entirely tarmac (which to me, is a relief).
I am going to do this ride on Sunday. If anybody cares to join, welcome.
Kaushik, and Renny, are you in? Anybody else?
