I went on this amazing bicycle tour in Mumbai which was really one of the best. The booking was done instantly and it was an easy process. I along with my four friends went on this cycling tour. We started at around 06.15 AM. Oh I tell you guys mornings are always the best in Mumbai. We took some of the unknown roads which is away from the hustle and bustle. We covered some of the famous places like CST Station, Crawford Market, Mumbadevi Temple, Bombay Panjrapole etc. Altogether it was a great trip. Would love to go for it again.

It was morning time when we started pedalling and got to enjoy the morning beauty of the city that never sleeps. After arriving at the dock, we witnessed the fishermen getting busy with their catches. Visit to Bombay Panjtapole was also very exciting along with a visit to Mumba Devi Temple. After all these, we also ride around Marine Drive, Crawford Market, and several other stunning places. The 4 hours spent on cycling along with the guides and instructors was just an unforgettable experience!

The bus journey to Lonar was very exciting. We reached there early morning and the weather was very pleasant. Breakfast was served after sometime and then the group leaders took some time to give us an insight about the day. The entire day was very exciting and there were activities spread out throughout the day. Foods were really good. Star gazing at the night sky was the best part of this trail in Lonar.
