We’re back with one of our most popular event – Cycling The Adventurous Islands of Mumbai.
The cycling adventure begins with a short ride to Gorai Jetty.
After taking a ferry to Gorai, we enter the untouched portion of Mumbai, something we like to call the Islands of Mumbai. We begin pedalling on a road enveloped by widespread lush mangroves.
The road soon runs south through the quaint village of Gorai and leads us onward to the coast. Once we arrive at the coast, we continue riding on the coastline. This is where things begin to get adventurous. The terrain changes from tarmac to off-road and our short mountain biking experience begins. At the end of the off-road route is our secret hill top spot from where the most scenic sights can be witnessed. At this point, you might wonder,”Am I still within the city of Mumbai?”, to which we will answer, “YES”.
Next, we head out to the northern end of the island to visit one of the most unique destinations on this ride – The Uttan Lighthouse. From the lighthouse, one grabs a panoramic sight of the beaches of Uttan, Gorai & Manori. One can also witness the vibrant and colourful fishing village of Uttan from here. There is definitely a lot to take in visually at this point of the ride.
With most of the riding done for the day, we stop by for a scrumptious breakfast at The Golden Toff Resort. After a hearty breakfast, we ride towards the last landmark called The Global Vipassana Pagoda and later ride back to the start of the ride to conclude the day.
