"I presume you will picnic this week end. This is going to be start of rainy season. If it rains, expect lots of disruption. Try avoiding bike riding. And keep lots of reserve time on hand.
Of all the spots you have mentioned , only Mahabaleshwar will be a good place to visit at this time. But all the places ( including Mahabaleshwar ) are far off.
Alibag will be a good option for you. Caution - stay away from the sea, it will be too dangerous.
Matheran will be a good & nearer option, too. Enquire about water availability before you go. I presume there is water scarcity this year in Matheran.
Lonavala & Khandala are good but expensive."
