Summer is here in full swing. With the pandemic putting our travel plans on pause last year, everyone has a bag packed and ready to explore the next best and safest travel destination this year. With the lockdown last year, most of the regular vacationers used up the time to explore the unexplored and unidentified hidden gems closest to the cities they are living in or looking up some unique and safe adventures that they can take up. You not only get the chance to explore these picturesque spots but also experience them on electric bikes that help you reduce your carbon footprint, even while on vacation.
So here are some amazing ideas by Sandeep Mukherjee, Co-Founder and COO, BLive, that can be explored through curated e-bike tours in the following places:
Goa’s Offbeat Islands
Would you believe that Goa still holds some secret places that you will love exploring? Discover an unseen island escape that is away from the crowds and lined with the unexplored colonial charm of its beautiful houses and churches. Across the Mandovi river at Diwar Island, lies an unexplored and beautiful island haven in Goa. Here you will discover an entirely different side of the city as you ride through the local fishing villages, fields, and mangroves.
This place is packed with hidden travel gems, like a Baroque-style church, a mystical temple site that is over 1000 years old, and a converted Indo-Portuguese heritage home. You can enjoy the lovely view on e-Bike tours available in Goa.
St Estevam or Ilha Verde is known to be one of the prosperous Islands of Goa. Among locals, it's called the isle of vegetables because of the long, seven-ridged, light green ladyfingers that are grown here. The Island is famously known for its historical heritage with stories of the Marathas and Portuguese. A walk through this island will leave you amazed by what it has to offer. You may even spot some migratory birds on a visit here! The pleasant weather, warm and friendly locals and scenic beauty makes it a top-place place to check out if you are in Goa.
Heritage Dairy Temple In Ooty
After spending months indoors with the same view, you’re going to enjoy this refreshing summer getaway in the Nilgiris mountains in Ooty. You can explore the best the mountains have to offer on e-Bike Tours and take a trip through the scenic spots to visit a lesser-known ancient dairy temple belonging to the Toda tribe.
Interestingly, the priests of this temple were considered too sacred that they could not be touched by ordinary people. The religious rules were so strict that common people could enter these temples just once a year! This trip combines the lovely weather and scenery of the great outdoors with rich historical experience and is sure to enrich your travels.
Nature Trail In Coorg

You can take up an e-bike tour that will take you to the hidden gems of Galibeedu Surprise Point and Chappanda kere, which have the best views of the valley, without tiring you out!
