Immerse Yourself into the Journey
(Mark our words) Soon, we reach the coast and from riding on tarmac we transition to off-road. This is where things begin to get adventurous.
We will be mountain biking to a secret hill-top spot from where the island can truly be appreciated. We then ride up north of the island to visit the light house and the virgin coastline followed by a scrumptious breakfast at The Golden Toff Resort. We sip on chai and enjoy conversations.
After a hearty breakfast, we ride to The Global Vipassana Pagoda which is a meditation dome hall that has a capacity to seat around 8,000 meditators. Later we end our day not with another quick boat ride to the bustling side of the city.
A healthy breakfast at The Golden Toff which happens to be one of our favourite pool side morning resorts in the islands.
We're a chirpy adventure-seeking bunch. Our love for cycling and the great outdoors is contagious. You certainly will be left high on our energy.
