  2. Local way of living

    Our two wheel adventure in the countryside was mesmerizing. We passed by small villages, where we saw children playing and locals going about their daily routines. It was a great way to immerse in the culture and get a glimpse of the real Colombo. One of the highlights of our cycling trip was visiting the local markets. We were able to stop and explore them at our own pace, without worrying about parking or traffic. We even stopped to try some delicious street food, which we would have otherwise missed out on if we were in a car.

    We were excited to explore the city's suburbs on two wheels. I must say, we were not disappointed at all. Cycling in Colombo's suburbs was a truly unique and unforgettable experience. As we cycled through the suburbs, we were surrounded by lush greenery and beautiful landscapes. The roads were well-maintained, making the ride smooth and enjoyable. We were able to take in the sights and sounds of the city at a leisurely pace, something that would have been impossible in a car
