This tranquil world is a beautiful melange of Indian and French traditions. Uncover the magic of the Promenade running along the beach, lesser-known stories of French War Memorial and Le Café building. Encounter at the famous Aurobindo Ashram will reveal the connection with one of Bengal's most illustrious families from the Bengali Renaissance days. Brimming with history, culture, cuisine, and scenery – this cycling odyssey is a story-book ride for those looking for unique, memorable, and multi-layered experiences.

What you will experience

Our e-bikes allow us to explore the riches of Pondicherry’s intriguing Franco-Tamil culture in all its richness amongst its monuments and bazaars, religious spots and café world. We will check out the captivating action on the Promenade and unspool the roll call of its historic landmarks such as the  Statue of Duplex, Mahatma Gandhi Statue, French War Memorial and Le Café Building. Pedalling off to the famous Aurobindo Ashram, we will reconnect with the Bengali Renaissance through a member of one of Bengal’s most illustrious families. Papermaking can be a fascinating art and this tour offers you a great opportunity to experiment this first hand at one of the oldest paper-making units in the town. Our wanderings will bring us to the beautifully restored former home of a French judge, now an award-winning café and restaurant for refreshments.  Over a coffee soak in the rich nuances of a world gone by, but which has left behind an inimitable legacy of the colonial-era Franco-Tamil culture in its various avatars for contemporary India to enjoy to its fill.
