It was my first trip to Velas as my one of the colleague insist me to come with them for 2 days bike trip. Well, I prefer the bike rides as compare to the car and public transport. Whatever my colleague explained me about the trip, I felt very much interested for trip. As i have just shifted to Pune and wanted to explore the places in Maharashtra. I have visited a lot of places in north as previously I was living there. Velas is one of unexplored beaches in Konkan.
