Biking Excursion with DoTheDiu

Do the diu 2017 Final Bike 2nd flyr logo

Wanderlust and creativity go hand in hand, travel works like a gateway for deep thinking and solitude. Driving miles and miles for a single destination, hoping, imagining, surviving, and relishing the journey, not just the destination. Experiencing the unknown, out of nowhere. Biking is something that was never meant for the faint-hearted and in coming new year Gujarat is witnessing an exclusive journey organized specifically for the bravados who have the guts to travel Diu on Bikes.

The Do the Diu has come up with its 3rd Bike Riding edition where people from different cultures, taste, customs and districts will ride together to reach Diu and adore some nice EDM tunes with a few local indie performers too.  Diu has been a luxuriating travel destination since decades, but many people are not aware that it has a huge cultural influence on our country’s history too. The Naida Caves story about Portugal, Indian Independence movement and Pandavas living in Diu while serving their Vanvas (Exile in the forest) are certain historical aspect about the place.
