Mumbai To Goa Tour Info


The tour is suited to enthusiastic cycle tourists with a keen sense of adventure and ready for a challenge. Riders should be of a reasonable cycling fitness. Some stages can be quite challenging with steep short climbs  and some long days in the saddle. Stage distances vary day to day with the maximum being around 95km. For those whose natural cycling abilities might need some assistance then we will have e-bikes available for this tour.


Tours start and finish in Mumbai which is well served by international carriers with Emirates amongst others offering well priced deals. Check airlines for luggage allowance and if you are bringing out your own bike what their policy is regarding cycles.


Most nationalities including U.K citizens can apply for an E-Visa with a 30 day stay-limit and can also apply for longer term tourist visas if required.


Get in touch with your GP or travel clinic  well in advance of your departure for latest information on vaccinations and any other medical considerations.

For additional information for U.K citizens then as below (the same link can also be a good guide for those from all countries)


Get insured. It is a condition of our trips that you are adequately insured. Policies must cover cycling and the potential risks of a cycling holiday. If your usual insurance doesn’t cover cycling as part of the main purpose of your holiday then consider specialist coverage such as

We need a copy of your insurance ready for us on arrival or send us on a copy via e-mail prior to the trip.


All our accommodation has been hand-picked to be just about the best there is including boutique hideaways. 


Our tours are schedules when the south India climate is at its best with daily sunshine almost guaranteed. Temperatures will be up and above 30c during the day while nights maintain a balmy air. 


South Indian food is a highlight of any trip and simply does not get any better than the hidden eateries that we have discovered over our last 20 years of India riding experience. If you fancy a break from Indian food then there is a wide choice of western food to keep your taste buds happy.


We have full vehicle support for the duration of the tour. Riders who are tired or just wish for a quick break from the cycling will be able to take time out in the support vehicle.


The roads are in good condition by Indian standards with the majority of the roads being recently metalled and smooth. We recommend renting one of our hardtail mountain bike fleet or E-BIKES if required. If you are bring out your own bikes then we recommend short travel hardtail bikes or a touring bike with fast rolling tyres.


Bikes are available in S/M/L/XL and are priced at £140 for the tour duration. While E-Bikes rentals start from £250 for the tour duration. Please contact us for size availability.  Please bring your own pedals and consider bringing your own seat if you have a saddle that you are comfortable with.


As ever make sure your bikes are in tip-top condition before bringing them out. If you are unsure a part will survive the trip then replace or get it serviced by a bike shop. Performance bike parts are hard to obtain in India but we do have small stocks of spare parts. Let us know before you come about what bike you are bringing out and if there is anything specific to your bike that we might not have spares for.


Spare Mech Hanger

Spare sets of brake pads

2 Tubes

Spare spokes specific to your wheels

If you have any doubt on what you need to bring out with you as spares then just let us know.


Best to ride in touring attire so ride shorts are best. Exposed lycra cycling britches without over- shorts can bring attention. We would also recommend bringing both long sleeve and short sleeve tops to avoid sunburn and better to bring  shoes that you can also walk on so non-exposed cleats and non- aggressive tread patterns works best if you are riding SPD
