Day 1

Me and my 2 friends Rakesh and Pratik started journey from Gateway Of India and we took ferry to Mandawa Jetty and from there we pedal almost 110 km to Shrivardhan. It is very difficult for me because I have started Cycling after 8 years but with I m used to with Cycle. On the way, We were passed through Alibaug,Kashid,Murud,Dighi and seen lots of pain(Cramp) and gain(hills). Riding on sea route will add energy that energy boost us to ride continuous whole day.At the end,we arrived at Shrivardhan around 06:00 PM and stayed as a PG and enjoyed local dish fish curry.
