Is the Mumbai Midnight Cycling Ride for me?

If you miss cycling and want to get back, the Velocrush Ride (Mumbai Midnight Cycling Ride) is just for you. Enjoy the sea breeze, the quiet city streets under the moonlight. As the route is more of flats and consists of minimal elevation, everyone who has basic fitness are welcomed to participate.

Worli, Jambori Maidan

We meet at Worli, Jambori Maidan at sharp 10:30 p.m and pick up our bicycles and nutrition for the cycle event. We introduce ourselves to one another and get a brief about the ride from our tour leader. While the cars slowly start subsiding and the moon takes full control over the night sky, we head to towards Bandra, Carter Road via Shivaji Park on our bicycles.

Bandra, Carter Road

This might have been your hangout spot at some point of time. The chai, the shawarma and the sea, the Carter Road promenade never fails to impress.

Just stare into the sea and forget everything for a while. 🙂

Mahim Church

Once we are done starting at the night sky, we head back via the iconic Mahim Church. This place has been a landmark in Mumbai for the last 50 years and so we make it our pit stop for a water break before we continue to head towards Worli sea face via Shivaji park.

Worli Sea Face

We call this the mini marine drive, however, Worli Sea Face has a beauty of its own. With the waves crashing and the moonlight shimmering on the water, cycling by the sea breeze is truly fun.

Peddar Road

Right after soaking in the night sky at the sea face and getting a good view of the Bandra Worli sea link, we pass Haji Ali and climb over Peddar Road to reach Chowpatty.

With less cars and more street light, we will be cruising pass marine drive to reach The might Gateway of India.

Gateway of India

Once we refill our water bottles and head back to Marine Drive via NCPA, we ride pass the midnight chowpatty one last time.

Walkeshwar to Worli, Jambori Maidan

Well, all good things come to an end and so does this Long night ride. But not that easy. We climb up Walkeshwar, zoom down hanging garden and climb a bit more until we hit peddar road downhill. We get a better glimpse of the Haji Ali Dargah and finally reach our end point.
