*******Mumbai to Goa:: Sagari Mahamarg:: MSH4 :: Coastal Ride********

[attachment=2511]

Dear Brothers,

A route on my mind for quite few years, the last time I planned this I ended up doing Spiti circuit instead. Have done parts of this route many a times, but never did a planned full coastal route. Not a perfect month to do this route, but not a bad one either. Hopefully this time stars have aligned; and would pray that there are no last minute drama.

Coming back to the ride, I have planned 8 days of expedition to cover roughly 1200 kms. Believe me, this route requires as many days as possible. No rushing, absorbing it all; that’s the plan.

Pristine beaches of Konkan, Ancient but magnificent temples and forts, exotic backwaters and mouth-watering Konkani food would surely be the highlights of this route.

I will be skipping Alibaug-Murud stretch, as I have done it many a times. Will hit Shiroda and ride back to Mumbai.

Have attached a rough itinerary for reference, some tweaking are possible in time leading up to the start day.

Yes Sajeesh, this is really strange. Group ride via NH has happened, but still MSH4 is something which shall not be missed. Phillip and I were discussing the same thing the other day. This is a must do route :)

Hi Chiraag,

Ride was amazing brother as expected. It is indeed a beautiful route to be done at a slow pace. Will soon have couple of posts detailing about final route taken and other details. And, hopefully in few days will try to put together some write-up on the tour.

Cheers,
Rohit

Hi Brothers,

While planning an expedition, we work on many options and hope that things go as per plan. Sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn't. But we as riders welcome everything with open arms and right spirit. 

Mumbai to Goa Coastal ride was wonderful and the route presented some wonderful sights which i never imagined of. Each one of us must do it at least once. Route presents some stretches devoid of people, but fortunately no break-downs and all sailed like a breeze. 

Have tried to put the exact route taken and the expenses incurred, also have put out the google map co-ordinates (sometimes I left SH4 and went further towards Coast on unmarked roads, GPS had been very helpful) to help fellow brothers who would plan a ride on this route. Hope this will help in some way.

Hi,

Stayed at below locations:

1. Kelshi (close to Anjarle): Hotel Gulmohar ( 7517789624)
Run by an old couple. Perfect for Group stay. Rs. 500 per night per bed. Each room has 2 beds. 150 mts from beach.

2. Ganeshghule: Koko beach resort (+91-77986 03756- Tushar). Right on the beach. Rs. 1000 per room (accommodates 2). Good option to stay.

3. Tarkarli: Here you will get many options in Malvan, Tarkarli and Devbag. I got at Rs. 500 per room (accommodates 2).

4. Shiroda: Go to south part of the beach, you have nice places to stay there. Right on the beach. 500 per room. I think I stayed at sea view resort. There are only 6-7 resorts to choose from I guess.

5. Arambol: Stayed at a hostel. Happy Panda. Not advisable for a group. Rs. 450 per bed per night.

Hope this helps. All the best for your ride brother.

Let me know if you need any more details.

Cheers,
Rohit Singh
