COUNTRY SIDE – SADDLE TO PEDAL
About the tour:
It is living deep in woods. The village is raw and basic. It is refreshing for those aching for a revisit to the past of sepia days. Hidden Village is not a regular resort.
The expedition will involve cycling from Mumbai south to hidden village near Shahapur. Get on your wheels ready and paddles on, pull your backpacks with energy and thrill to ride along the country side of Mumbai. Viewing some exorbitantly lush green plateaus and clear blue sky while riding uphill, one shall get mesmerised. The expedition will involve uphill and downhill ride, which is suitable for avid and usual cyclists.
