Mumbai to Goa Coastal Cycling Expedition

Mumbai - Goa
8 Days7 Nights

Event Overview

In this cycling tour, we would start from Gateway Of India, Mumbai, and would go past sun-washed beaches of coastal Maharashtra, unassuming villages, and thickly green hillsides before finally landing in Goa. The trip is designed to take you through the vibrant coastal side trails, rich in enthralling landscapes, local interaction, cultural experiences, monuments and temples and a distinct array of food. Besides seeing the real Maharashtra or real India at close quarters, we would also encounter a multitude of challenges, making this is a memorable trip for all those who are young at heart.

Schedule

Day 1 - Gateway of India to Murud
  • We all would assemble at the famous Gateway Of India very early morning to catch the ferry for Mandawa Jetty. Here we would give away our baggage to our pick up vehicle. After a very refreshing 1 ½ hours sail on the misty Arabian Sea we would reach Mandawa Jetty, from where we would hit the paddle. After about 28 Kms cycling we would reach the capital town of Raigad district, Alibag. We would have our lunch and move towards Kashid, which is around 24 Kms. via Revdanda. On the way we would visit the famous Korlai Lighthouse, which would make very interesting halt. The first day isn’t too hilly and difficult so we could concentrate on the great views of paddy fields, green countryside mild hillocks at a distance. The beach town of Kashid is one of the most unassuming and relaxing destinations off Mumbai with wonderfully clean and untouched beaches and a few temples in the vicinity. Further to Murud. Overnight in a guesthouse. (B, L, D…)
Day 2 - Murud to Harihareshwar
  • Today, we would ride along the breezy Konkan coastline to our next destination, Harihareshwar. After breakfast we would cycle up to Murud via Nandgaon. At Murud we would visit the famous and formidable Janjira Fort. The route would be mostly flat, flanked by the sea on one side. The weather along the coast could be a little humid. Then from Murud we would cycle past Rajapuri up to Agardanda and then we would cross the creek by ferry to Dighi. Then we would cycle to temple town of Harihareshwar via Shrivardhan. On the way we would visit Ganesh temple at Diveagar, which has the Ganesh idol made of gold. At Harihareshwar we would stay in a simple guesthouse. The constant sound of the sea would be therapeutic as we would settle with a good view.
  • Overnight in a guesthouse. (B, L, D)
