About Program :
As the SUN dips down and the TWILIGHT fades to darkness there’s nothing sweeter than wheeling your bike for a late summer night cruise. Come join us for this freewheeling adventure to say hello to the darkness and feel the sound of silence.
The lake side region of Khadakwasla dam is one of the favourite tracks among cyclists as it attracts them with a mix of uphill and downhill slopes alongside the backwaters of the dam. Even it has been a great track for beginners as it does not involve very steep climbs. Whether you are looking to test yourself up some of the haute climbs, or have a gentle cycle through the valley, you can do it straight with Pedal Thirst Adventures!!!

Khadakwasla Dam is a dam on the Mutha River 20 km (12 mi) from the city of Pune in Maharashtra, India.This dam across the river Mutha created an attractive lake, now known as Khadakwasla Lake. This lake is the main source of water for Pune and its suburbs. Many people come here on weekends and during the monsoon season. Scenic places around the dam include Peacock Bay, Kudje village, and Neelkanteshwar, located near Bahuli village just past Kudje. The Sinhagad road, bordering the dam, has become a favorite picnic spot. There is a "chowpatty" offering snacks food and non-alcoholic drinks. Peacock Bay, however, is out of bounds to the public at large, being part of the NDA, a Defence Forces establishment.
