  • Trip introduction

    Sign up for this cycling adventure in Goa, where you'll get to venture deep into this gorgeous beachside land. During this 8-day cycling tour, you will travel through the state exploring quaint villages and hippie beach shacks. You'll explore Portuguese churches, wildlife sanctuaries, local marketplaces and stay in a variety of heritage homes, island retreats, local home-stays and beach resorts.

    This Goa cycling tour is easy and covers about 40 kms per day, all on tarmac roads, and can be done by beginners.

    This expedition is accompanied by 1 support vehicle to carry cycles and baggage, as well as cyclists who want to rest or are unable to cycle that day. There are rest stops every 25-30 minutes, and you'll be able to get a snack or drink, or access your luggage if you need to.

    Destination

    Famous for its vibrant beach culture and scenic destinations, Goa is dotted with landmarks that showcase Portuguese art and history. During this trip, you'll cycle to several such destinations, from the famed Basilica of Bom Jesus to the Tambdi Surla temple of the 12th century. You'll learn a lot about the ecological diversity of this state, by cycling to the Mahaveer Wildlife Sanctuary and spending a night at the eco-resort in the middle of the forests. During your tour, you will also stay at beach resorts, since it is almost a sin to visit Goa and not spend some time at one of its endless beaches!

      'It began with my login not working properly on TGN website. I contacted the customer service and they were so prompt with their reply that they not only helped me do my entire booking process over chat, but they became familiar with all four of my friends even more than I was. Venkat helped me secure seats in a batch that was already full and had it not been for the guys at TGN, we wouldn't have gone for such an amazing bicycle ride through the coastal region of Mumbai. Thanks guys, keep up the good work!'
