Journey to Inspire Kolhapur to Pune/ Day 4

Bikerni at Pune

We saw us riding across #maharashtra . We left #kolhapur at about 7:30, and stopped for breakfast en-route, sabudana kichidi and vadas. We were riding to #pune and we were to reach early to be part of a puja procession. As we rode on the traffic gradually increased, and so did the temperature. The trees by the highway didn’t give us shade from the overhead sun, except for one clump that we spotted. We couldn’t stop at many of the restaurants as parking was a little away, and our bikes had quite a bit of #luggage . Our only respite was the warm air we felt while riding! Dhananjay, Archana’s friend met us on the highway, and took us to his home. The ride through the city traffic in the heat with the gear and luggage to a famous temple was more taxing than the entire ride itself! We also met an elderly and popular political figure. His home was like a mini museum with swords and shields and art work in praise of Shivaji and the Maratha. Post this we were put up at the Gymkhana, and met with the some people from the deaf and hard of hearing community. They were happy to meet Archana and were encouraged with all that she had achieved. #silentexpedition#journeytoinspire#ride#travel#biking#rideforacause#ktm#duke390#enfield#thunderbird # tuskerPAM #daineseagvindia#journey#sunset
