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.

Tackling the steep slopes, dense jungles, unbearable heat, incessant rains, diseases, landslides and wild animals that define the Western Ghats was an ambitious endeavor. The railway track was achieved by an amalgamation of the best of engineering expertise, machinery and skilled labourers toiling under inhospitable conditions. The majority of the workforce consisted of mainly South Asians who were involved in the daunting task of digging and moving earth and rock. At the peak of its construction there were around 16000 people, hailing from Afghanistan to Ceylon, employed in the Ghats.
