Event Description

Dear friends,

I have come up with an innovative idea of starting the new year by cycling till Lonavala & back. We will start from Vile Parle East sharp at 4 AM & hope to wind up by 6 pm. The details are as follows:-
Start Time:- 4 AM, Vile Parle East at Avion Hotel (previously known as JAL / diagonally opposite of Sahara Star). The route taken will be Vile Parle - Kalanagar- Sion - Chembur - Vashi - Panvel - Chowk - Khalapur - Khopoli - Lonavala. We will rest at Lonavala for some time though not more than one & half hour. We hope to reach Lonavala by 10.30 AM. Return journey will start latest by noon. We will have lunch at Mauli Dhabha on NH 4. It is a feast for non vegetarians. And veggies will also get some decent stuff.

Things to Carry:- 
Helmet (Compulsory)
Cash (compulsory in case of contingencies)
Plastic Money (Optional)
Camera (Optional)
Water (Most important at least one and half is needed)
Spare Tube & Tool Kit (Compulsory)
Identity Card (Compulsory) 
Mini Air pump (Compulsory)
Reli-spray / Pain killers (Advisable) 
Glucon D / Electral Powder (Compulsory)

Please make sure that your bicycle is in shape. We are dedicated cyclists & don't like to carry any support vehicle. You may get in touch on my cell in case of any difficulty. It is 09833859713

Thank you,

since I will be back home only by 12 am and I have to work on Monday, so I will join you from Chembur, maybe I can come upto Panvel and return back, so that I can at least take one step towards developing my endurance

Shivkumar  I dont think ur speed is bad, here it is the need of consistency in speed. We expect to ride at around 23-25 to get our average of 20 kph.  So if u feel like it , take the 1st step. U can always return by train etc if u feel it is too much. But Nachiket is also right and if you are working on Mondays it will be tough !!

Hi Shivkumar,

Join only if you are confident. I prefer to do the things step by step & I have gradually increased my distances before attempting something like 200 Kms. But anyways that's my personal thinking. If you are feeling confident then go for it.

Comment by Shivkumar Vishwanathan on December 29, 2011 at 10:34am

sounds tempting but don't have a spare kit and also my speed is quite slow..and never done more than 50kms at a stretch so dont know whether to attempt

Also good Gloves, and a comfortable Seat/ Shorts to make ur behind easy for 13 hrs of ride.
