Five riders took off to discover a forgotten history on the west coast through small fishing villages. This expedition covers four forts that line the Palghar coast. And the best way to enjoy the countryside and the historical monuments is riding a cycle! One of the best cycling expeditions so far this year.
Elephanta Caves on Elephanta Island is one of the well known tourist destinations around Mumbai.
However, I decided to visit the island to try something different – I took my mountain bike there… to my pleasant surprise, I found a wonderful cycling route that circles the island along the shore and at the end, climbs up the hill to the caves.
Then even better, there is a short but steep climb uphill to a pair of cannons… then the downhill ride was a completely unexpected bonus!
