Cycling in Konkan – Memorable Experience

Loading cycles…

Riding 180 (approx) kms in 4 days was a super fun activity. It wasn’t about strength it was about love for pedaling. Though we covered close to 40-45 kms each day, the terrain was typical KONKAN like, which was full of climbs and slopes! The best reward of climbing is to enjoy the steep slope later!

Our route was like this —> Harihareshwar – Anjarle – Murud – Kolthare – Dabhol – Guhagar – Velneshwar – Chiplun

With greened earth, decorated by colorful flowers. cloud cover, quick showers and chirping birds, riding was pleasure through smiling people and helping souls.

Some of the best moments i tried to click. Pictures will tell a story… and some secrets too!
