We stopped near Temghar Dam to eat a roasted sweet corn. A guy wearing a typical black leather biker uniform was having a cup of tea. I casually asked him what this bike noise is all about and he stared at me in disbelief for a second and then replied very enthusiastically - 'Everyone is coming to Lavasa to celebrate the world's motorcycling day. I am planning to buy a new bike and want to see some of the new bike models and talk to fellow biker.' After discussing about the highlights of the event we parted ways.Every year June 21 is celebrated as a world motorcycling day. A group of biking enthusiast organizes MotoDay at Lavasa on a weekend close to 21 st June. 2016 marked the third edition of MotoDay event. Superbike manufactures had set up their stalls for the bikers and the latest bike models were on display. Biking merchandise, spare parts and accessories were on sale. There was also an R&D session in which experts talked about the latest motorcycle technology. We enjoyed talking to some of the bikers. They treated their bikes like their babies and were very enthusiastic discussing about anything related to their bikes -Engine, accessories or even the exhaust pipe. It was a fantastic experience to meet the motorcycling community.Few things to know before you plan your trip to LavasaHow to reach Lavasa - Lavasa is approximately 60 km from Pune and 190 km from Mumbai.

I am always amazed with Agro tourism concept as it is miles together away from artificial hospitality & purely money making hotel business .     On the other hand Agro tourism running persons are generally farmers from  villages itself. You may not see lavish well furnished rooms or sofisticated managing personnel here. But they will welcome you warm heartedly and whatever they offer will never count. Farm fresh food verses canned /IQF fruits/vegetables is major difference you feel.       So the day I came to know about this place , I was eager to visit the place. And finally the day rose and started my journey  in the afternoon. After passing Uravade lush greenery at both sides of the road was really eye soothing. I turned off AC and opened the windshields. Breathing  fresh air was refreshing  mind as well as soul. Waterfalls were seen at every 100 meters. By the time we crossed Lavasa main gate. Rainbow arcs and Hide and seek of sunlight with shadow was seen oftenly. Photographs posted herewith will tell you everything , I promise.        At last we reached Eco village, Patharshet and the manager welcomed us with big smile and snacks & masala tea. The place was more amazing than I expect. Being vegan we ordered vegetarian food in dinner which was also simply delicious. We spent the night in tent.
