Around Goa on the Bicycle

It was the month of December and the holiday season was about to kick-start. I decided to plan for a nice holiday trip to end the year. In spite of having lived in Mumbai all my life, I'd not visited Goa yet. Thus, Goa was on the top of my travel bucket list. I started looking up online about Goa only to find out that it's peak season there and hotels are either booked or prices have escalated manifold. I was about to give up on Goa, but fortunately I stumbled upon YHAI's website and found about the Biking expedition. I hurriedly booked my seat as only few were left and voila, I was going to Goa.

Goa represents a quintessential place perfect for those beach holidays lying on the sand under the sun with a beer. This trip was completely opposite of it. For example; instead of lying, we cycled to the beach. Our cycling route included all sorts of terrain from the coastline to the midlands to the mountain ranges. If it was not for this trip, I could have never explored the beauty of inner parts of Goa.

Following is the day wise plan of our cycling route:

Day 0 - Joy ride in and around Panaji

Day 1 - Mormugao Harbour to Assolna [40 Km]

Day 2 - Assolna to Netravali Village [41 Km]

Day 3 - Netravali Village to Dudhsagar Waterfalls [58 Km]

Day 4 - Dudhsagar Waterfalls to Bondla Wild Life Sanctuary [35 Km]

Day 5 - Bondla Wild Life Sanctuary to Panaji City [45 Km]
