As they say, unplanned motorcycle rides turn out to be the best. This was once such ride. Things were quite busy and there seemed no chance that I would be able to get out for a weekend motorcycle ride. But some plans got cancelled and rejoice! I had plenty of time for a weekend motorcycle ride! Since we hardly had any time to plan, we decided a very cliché motorbike ride.

Ride Type: Highway, Narrow Roads

Ride Difficulty: Easy

Distance from Pune: 40km

Winter is here! (GoT fans, pun intended). Winter rides are something most motorcycle riders always look forward to. After about three weeks of a lot of work and health breakdown, I finally got some time this weekend to go for a nice ride. Eager to ride, I started to plan it a week in advance. Called up a few friends, did some probing on the internet and we came up with a lovely plan. We decided to ride to the Prati-Balaji Temple at Ketkawale and then improvise the further route. We also found out that there was a small dam near the temple called Devadi Dam which we decided to visit.

Did a bit of probing and got a perfect destination for a nice and calm short motorcycle ride. Pabe Ghat.

Trekkers see this season apt to organize treks. As do motorcycle riders, to go on motorcycle rides.

If you are an off-road junkie, then you are in for a real treat. Water, mud, rough terrain, and of course near Pune. A pleasant ride to the village Tav during summer and winter becomes an absolute off-roading frenzy in the monsoon.
