Ride from Cuncolim Village to Benaulim Beach n than along shore to Betalbatim

I was on usual business follow up 3 day trip to my Goa unit. Mostly it is hectic but than since this time it was Sat, Sun & Mon ( 13, 14 & 15th Feb) I managed to take out time on Sunday for Blessing of my place, afternoon family gathering, 45 mins Margao Carnival & than drove to Benaulim Beach.

Monday I left on Cycle my Cuncolim Gauleacotto home at 6.00 am. to go to Betalbatim for usual cycling round & to meet my Pune friends. As I started it was pitch dark until I reached Benaulim which I think was a 16Km ride. Once at the beach it was heavenly. Soothing breeze, musical waves, fisher folk pulling the catch on the shore, people on morning jog and walk.

Than I rode the bike along the shore to reach Betalbatim. On my way I crossed Colva beach, Sernabatim and than to Betalbatim. I lost my mobile phone 3 weeks ago and I have no contacts in my phone. After dialling couple of known numbers managed to get through to friends number but to my bad luck they were returning to Pune that morning.

I was confused about my speedo reading and knowledge of the distance between my home & Benaulim beach. Never the less it was lovely ride and reached home around 8.45am most of the time riding.

By chance if we can get along well you can travel with me and than go for a beach ride. I visit Goa every 3rd week. My Lux pickup can fit 1/2 dozen cycles. Well Cuncolim about 13Kms from Palolem
