In the beautiful locales around the Trimbakeshwar mountain ranges in Nasik, with rides ending at a winery to sample wines.
Nasik is known as the Wine capital of Maharashtra, with some world-famous wineries situated here. What better way to explore these wineries with sample tasting and that too on a cycle ride!! This event offers you a unique combination of a ‘wine hop on a cycle’!
It was an easy paced ride with each day ending at a winery for wine tasting and exploring the winery. Along the way there were a number of stops at various places of interest, regroup stops, photo op stops etc. Basically, the idea is to have fun with the entire group as we hop along on our saddles to experience the Wine County!
We cycled through the beautiful and scenic landscape that the Trimbakeshwar range of mountains have to offer. The terrain was a rolling type of terrain, with a few climbs typical to Maharashtra. The road surface also was quite decent with the occasional rough patches. The backwaters of the dams in the area offer a beautiful view every now and then.
