Cycling - The Adventurous Islands of Mumbai
Spend your weekend on an adventurous bicycle ride exploring the scenic islands of Uttan, Gorai and Manori!
The day begins on an early morning at Gorai Jetty. After taking a ferry (boat ride) to the Island of Gorai, we start our pedal ride on the lush mangrove enveloped island roads that leads us to our first stop - The Global Vipassana Pagoda.
We continue towards the rockface perimeter of Manori for a bit of adventurous off-roading/mountain biking. The sights from this vantage point are truly to die for.
After a quick stop, we head to one of the most unique destinations on this ride - The Uttan Light House. Our stopover at Uttan Light House will not simply be a quick stopover but a staircase climb to the top of the iconic Uttan destination where one may grab the most brilliant view of the colourful fishing village of Uttan, Uttan Virgin Beach & Gorai Beach, all in one sight.
To charge our bodies for the ride going forward, we stop by for scrumptious breakfast. Post breakfast, we ride back to Gorai jetty.
