    Default Lavasa- Bikers' Paradise

    I personally feel that Lavasa is a fantastic place to ride. Located about 40 kms from Chandani Chawk in Pune it is arguably the best patch of road in Maharashtra. Turn left from Pirangut village and you are on your way to the beautiful valley city which is being built on the lines of the Vatican. What makes Lavasa such an ideal location for biking are its two contrasting ghat sections. While the first one, Mutha, boasts of fast sweeping corners, the Lavasa ghat is highly technical thanks to its 12 tight hairpins. Moreover the road is in mint condition, wide and with proper marking. These are among the few reasons why it is frequently visited by Bunny and Co. to conduct their bike tests. However, this destination can be very dangerous if you do not respect its turns and the safety of other commuters.

    I visit Lavasa quite often and it really hurts when I see newbies as well as good riders ride carelessly on these beautiful ghats. There are quite a few rider groups in Pune who ride to Lavasa every weekend and although most of these riders are dressed in the best protective gear, they go up and down the ghat sections (especially Mutha) at ridiculous speeds, cutting other commuters on the road, leaning at 80kmph into a blind corner and that too from the wrong lane. Such incidents infuriate me beyond control as it is because of these "RIDERS" that the villagers settled between these ghat sections have started attacking every properly dressed biker heading to Lavasa. I don't blame the villagers at all because quite a few of them have been hurt during accidents with bikers who were riding irresponsibly. So I request every biker here on xbhp who is reading this post to please ride responsibly, wear the proper gear and have utmost respect for other commuters and villagers on the road. I myself practice on these ghats every other weekend. I take corners at speeds that allow me to put my knee down. But I NEVER charge into blind corners and also make it a point to stay in my own lane even while I am leaning. Infact, you can lean a lot more if you stick to your own lane and the right line.

    Lavasa is indeed the closest thing we have to a track here in Maharashtra. Please ride in a way that other bikers too can take advantage of the fantastic ride that Lavasa has to offer.

    True , but not a proper place to hangout I feel.The only thing missing is a good "eating joint" . You can't even get good tea or snacks here.
