Spend your Sunday evening cycling & kiting on the adventurous islands of Mumbai!
The adventure begins with a quick ferry ride to Gorai. Soon, our pedal-powered wheels cruise over smooth tarmac roads enveloped by mangroves on the either side.
As we ride towards the sunset in the horizon, we pass through the quaint fishing villages of Gorai & Manori. Once we reach the coast, we unwind with a workshop on flying dual line static & stunt kites. After some frolic over a mesmerising sunset & chai, we make a quick pit-stop at the Global Vipassana Pagoda. After that, it’s time to call it a day and head back to the chaos of the city.
About the location:
The backdrop of the event is the seldom visited part of Mumbai, a place we fondly call the islands of Mumbai. Split from the main city, by a small creek, are the islands of Gorai and Manori.The place has an exotic feel to it and is rich with culture, wildlife and biodiversity. Colourful houses, narrow lanes and an authentic coastal lifestyle will remind you of Goan culture. The region hosts quaint little towns which are bustling by day and grooving by night.
