Cycling in Konkan – A Memorable Experience

cycling in konkan

Riding 180 (approx) km in 4 days was a super fun activity. It wasn’t about strength it was about love for peddling. Though we covered close to 40-45 km 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! Cycling in Konkan will always stay special…

Enroute awesomeness

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

With greened earth, decorated by colourful 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!
