Cycling in Goa, India

Cycling in Goa

Goa makes up for being the smallest state in India by providing tourists with an overwhelmingly beautiful outdoors life, plenty of culture and cuisine options, and the fun vibe of the place. Thanks to the extensive coastline, green forests, rocky cliffs and raging rivers, there’s plenty of adventure options as well. However, while there is an odd bungee jumping spot, most of the adventure options in Goa are more of an exploratory nature. You’ll find relaxed snorkelling trips that take you to deserted beaches where you can snorkel to your heart’s content. You’ll also find cycling trips in Goa that take you to the most scenic spots around.

Many cycling trips in Goa start from the state capital, Panaji, the city of cobbled streets, colourful villas and true Portuguese ambience. This is where you’ll meet and begin your cycling in Goa. Depending on the route you choose, you’ll be exploring the many islands of Goa on cycle, or visiting small fishing villages, or doing a cycle tour of old Goa.

Cycle tour of Old Goa

On cycling tours of old Goa, you’ll ride through narrow old streets, some with their heritage shopfronts still intact, and visit what was once a Portuguese colony. You’ll stop at cathedrals, pedal over old bridges, and pause to admire charming chapels and churches.

Cycling trips to the islands of Goa

Goa has a wealth of islands, both in the rivers and in the sea. Some cycling trips in Goa take you on ferry rides, where you’ll park your cycle and enjoy the boat ride. After that, you’ll cycle through the islands of Ribandar, Divar, Chorao, and then back.

Trip Highlights:

A cycling tour of Old Goa or other cycling in in Goa trips can last up to three hours. Some routes or itineraries allow for stopping to visit churches or famous landmarks; some include a delicious local breakfast or lunch, and some are meant for you to just cycle through and admire the natural beauty of the area. But whatever itinerary you choose, you’ll get to see a side of Goa that not many tourists witness.

What to carry when cycling in Goa

Participants should wear comfortable clothes while cycling in Goa. Athletic leggings or shorts, and comfortable t-shirts are the best outfit for a cycling trip. Don’t forget to carry sunscreen lotion and a hat to protect your skin from the sun. You might also require bottled water and some snacks.

Best season for cycling in Goa

The winters are a good time for cycling tours of old Goa or of any other cycling trips in Goa. During this time, the sun is mild and the day remains cool for longer. However, most cycling trips start in the morning, so you’ll be cycling in the cooler first half of the day.
