Event Description

I don't want to waste my Diwali holidays doing nothing.Thinking to go to Harihareshwar (Kokan) & back. It will be combination of cycling & boats. I will be saving my energy wherever I can use arabian sea. For example - Gate way of India to Mandva jetty, Rajapuri to Dighi. My holidays start from 26th till 30th. Need to go to work on 31st. Have 5 days. The total distance (to & fro) is around 320 Kms (Max). So it comes to 64 Kms. a day. Simple?? But need companions. I need clean toilet & bed. So very luxurious hotels I will be avoiding. Anyone up for this? Without companions it is not possible. I don't want to miss this opportunity. We can meet in person before. Discuss the things. Do some brain storming, plan & then proceed. I am not very experienced cyclist. But 100 Kms. a day I can do at ease. Depending upon the competency of the group, we will decide how much south we should go. I need to be back home on 30th October.


If you want to know details, call me on my cell from 9 pm to 11 pm. I will answer your call for sure!

26-10-2011:-  Meet at Gateway of India at 5.45 AM. Catch first ferry to Mandwa jetty at 6.15 AM. Once, reaching to Mandwa cycle till Murud. Basically night stay will be at Murud. So we hope to see forts on the way. Lunch might be taken at Revdanda. But on day 1 the objective is to reach Murud & sleep there. 
27-10-2011:- See Janjira Fort & take a boat to Dighi. Here objective is to reach harihareshwar. We will see Shrivardhan on the way.
28-10-2011:- From harihareshwar we take a boat to velas. See velas, Kelshi. Night stay at Dapoli. We will try to see maximum sea forts like Bankot, Himmatgad etc. 
29-10-2011:- Journey of heading back starts. From Dapoli we need to reach Murud or Dighi whatever the case maybe. This day we will be covering good amount of distance. But I think it will be more downhill than uphill.
30-10-2011:- Reach Mandwa again. Take a boat to gateway & later home sweet home after celebrating with some Beers.
That is what the tentative programme I have made. The programme is subject to alternation depending upon the contingencies. Most important thing is this is a leisure trip. We also want to see the worth seeing places. So it is not going to be only cycling activity. Any suggestions?
