Every biker would agree that there’s a certain amount of romance to bikes. Bikes are both beautiful and utilitarian. Bike rides are there to unleash the explorer in you. For passionate bikers, India seems to be the perfect match, as it can offer such experience that practically has no match. The list below will help you find some of the best places & routes for biking around Pune.

Lonavala/ Khandala

Lonavala, 68 km from Pune, is the most talked about destination for riders. Though the Mumbai–Pune Expressway route is an amazing experience, two-wheelers are not allowed to ply on this route. For bikers, Old Mumbai-Pune highway is the way to go. Khandala is only 5 km away from Lonavala and is home to a number of historic forts, lakes, deep valleys, and waterfalls.

Trekking, waterfall rappelling, camping, and farm tours are just some of the attractions. Visiting Korigad Fort, Tiger’s Leap, Lohgad, Karla and Bhaja caves are also sites worth seeing. Beauty of the Western Ghats is at its prime after Monsoon’s first rainfall. The beautiful Rajmachi fort is also a must-visit location just 15 km from Lonavala.


Alibaug is situated at a distance of 138 km from Pune. Surrounded by the sea on 3 sides and often called 'the Goa of Maharashtra', Alibaug is well connected to Pune by road which is a treat to riders. Extended shores, lovely beaches, and the magnificent view of Kolaba fort add to the pleasure of bike riders. Best time to visit Alibaug is from November to June.

Kashid/ Murud

If you are looking for a secluded beach, Kashid (192 Kms from Pune) is the place to be. In addition to the good bike ride, the beach also grants visitors a scenic view and relaxing experience. Ride another 40 km from Kashid and you will be at Murud, where one can see Janjira Fort, the uniqueness of this imposing structure is that it is built in the sea.

Surfing, para-sailing, and camping at Kashid are the major attractions. If you are a vegetarian, get your own food, as it is hard to get a good vegetarian meal beyond Alibaug. For nature lovers, a 12 km trip for Kashid Beach will take you to the Phansad Wildlife Sanctuary.


One of the most scenic routes, Lavasa (59 Km from Pune) is one of the favorite destination for bike lovers. With wide roads and beautiful Ghats in the backdrop, it’s perfect for those looking for an easy ride with some twists and turns thrown in. The beauty of the ride is multiplied if you ride out early in the morning, the greenery along with clouds for company will make your journey even more memorable.

Safety of Bikers

All adventures come with a complete package of pleasures, thrills, enjoyments, and risks. Hence it is important for adventurous bikers to be insured. A two wheeler insurance combined with a life cover and medical insurance is suggested.
