One of our favourite routes. We have done this route quite a few times and it always has a different charm to it whenever we go. The onset of monsoons will add the charm to this ride even more. The weather should be perfect for this ride.
It’s a 40 kms moderate paced ride with a couple of stops for regroups, photo ops and some time to be spent atop the beautiful Mutha ghat to soak in the sense of achievement of the tough climb. The route is predominantly rolling with smooth and scenic roads for most of the parts. It’s a great climbing practice for any beginner cyclist. The ghat (one way) is approx. 3 km of a challenging climb but the view from the top is worth every drop of sweat.
Please carry spare tubes, a personal puncture repair kit, at least 2 litres of water, some snacks like biscuits and/ or dry fruits for energy and some glucose powder/ tablets. In addition to this, it’s advisable to carry a rain jacket and a plastic pouch for wallets and phones in case of rain.
Total time taken for the ride will be somewhere close to 4 hours, since we will be taking breaks for regroups, having conversations, spending some time atop Mutha and clicking some great pictures, in addition to breaks that occur due to rains or anything else. (On the way back, tea/ snacks can be availed at Amrale at your own cost)
Let’s pedal to happiness everyone!
