As we had previously spent 4 days in Kerala, we were looking for something different during our cruise stopover in Cochin. The cycling excursion was excellent! Even though it was 35C and very humid, the bike ride was not hard, the bikes were great and our guide (Dobbin) took us through the interesting local backwaters. It is a great way to see local life in Kerala. About the half way point in the ride, we loaded the bikes onto a canoe for a ride on the waters which was a nice break and super experience. All in all, I would highly recommend this excursion for anyone who is in reasonable shape and comfortable on a bike.
