Konkan Cycling Tour

Konkan-Beaches1The Konkan coastline with abundant natural beauty is flanked by the Sahyadri mountain ranges on the east and the Arabian Sea on the west. The long coastline is home to several white sand beaches and is surrounded by hills and forests making it one of the most beautiful places to enjoy at leisure.

There is no better way to see this region than leisurely cycling along the beaches and through the lush green forests, stopping along the way at the local markets, experiencing an unique fish auction at the beach and visiting a hill temple with the most amazing all round views.

India Adventure Curry offers cycling tours in this region with a comfortable home stay on a family managed farm at Dapoli in the Ratnagiri district of Konkan. Situated at an altitude of 800 feet (244 m), with an abundance of cashew nut, jackfruit, coconut and betel nut plantations, Dapoli enjoys a cool climate through the year.

A three to four day tour, with approximately 30 km (19 mi) of cycling daily, includes cycling along the beaches, a temple visit, a local fish auction, lunch with local villagers and swimming in the river that runs through the farm.

The tour commences from the city of Pune which is at a distance of 220 km (137 mi). We make all arrangements for local travel, cycles and their repair support and nutritional home cooked food. The best time for a visit starts August going on to February.

Please mail us for tour details. We can also custom design a tour that suits your requirement.

Cycling to Sinhagad

Pune Cycling Tours

We have several cycling destinations around Pune. These are planned as early morning day trips leaving a major part of the day to combine some of the walking and heritage options as well. The cycling destinations around Pune are:

  •  Sinhagad Fort, also known as the Lion Fort, is located roughly 30 km (19 mi) southwest to the city of Pune, India. Previously called Kondhana, the fort has been the site of many important battles, most notably the battle of Sinhagad in 1670. Perched on an isolated cliff of the Bhuleswar Range of the Sahyadri Mountains, it is situated on a hill rising 4314 feet (1315 m) above sea level. Cyclists and trekkers alike head out to the top of the fort in the early morning before daybreak. Once at the top, you can see the panoramic views of Pune city spread all around and feast on some lip smacking Indian breakfast freshly prepared for you.
  • Lavasa, a modern city being constructed around the Varasgaon backwaters. The cycling tour to Lavasa takes you into the beautiful Pune countryside .
