      Madikeri
      Stop: 3 hours
      We start the tour at Kootu Hole Dam, with lush greenery around and water overflowing, it makes for a perfect spot to know the lesser-known facts and facets of Madikeri. While we visit famous sites like Backwater view, tea and coffee plantations, we also see some places off the beaten path to show you the true and unseen side of Madikeri. Just a 5 minute walk will lead us to Galibeedu Surprise Point that holds an incredible number of sights to feast your eyes on which even locals don’t know of. Reward yourself with a view of the Chappanda kere, where you’ll find the names of the plant by its fragrance, size and shape. Ride along Madikeri to enjoy a mix of unforgettable views and unbelievable scenery.

    Firstly very overpriced for a E bicycle tour. I was charged 4720 for just 2 of us which is totally not worthy of what was provided back to us. They had promised that the tour will be for 14 kms and 3 hours however the tour got over in less than 2 hours and was probably just 10 kms that we covered. Secondly they had promised that there will be some refreshments provided including snacks and etc but nothing was provided except a water bottle. In fact individual bag packs were also not provided in the tour to keep our belongings. The cycles were in bad condition. My cycle did not have proper brakes to handle the tour and offroading.

    These things matter a lot when you are charging a huge amount for the tour. I simply wont recommend anyone to take this tour. The only good part was our tour guide Sabir who was very humble and friendly. Rest was disappointing. Blive and Club Mahindra trying to mint money here.

    Below activities were not met in our provided itinerary :
    Meet a local planter and relish Coorg style food
    Refuel yourself with a healthy snack and refreshing drink.

    It's not worth paying ₹2200+/. The time mentioned is 3 hours but it was less than 2 hours up and down. Also, it is mentioned that I have to reach 30 mins early and it will start exactly at 9am. When I visited at 8:15am, I didn't see anyone until it was 9:15 am. Even after 9:30am, they kept waiting for some guest who was yet to come. So no respect for time. In the name of a refreshing drink you will get water and in the name of the energy bar, you will get a sandwich at the end. Overall the reviews written by others are either biased, written by their own team or written by the people for whom ₹2200/+ is not a big deal. I feel it should be less than ₹500/- for 2 hours.
    The good thing is that the guide is polite and friendly.

    Relaxing, beautiful and steeped in history.

    The ride is a lovely get away from the bustle of other areas in Coorg Madikeri is open and
    beautiful, and its history deep and fascinating.Chenappa, our guide, has an extensive knowledge
    of the area and it's history and clearly really enjoys leading the tours and sharing his
    understanding of the area. For some who likes bikes and history, it was a fantastic tour! The
    bikes are easy to use, and the ride is comfortable. I recommend this tour for anyone visiting
    coorg, especially if you want to feel an understanding of its unique culture and history within
    India. Thank you!

    Initially we were skeptical about the BLive ebike ride due the tiring journey of steep mountain terrain. But the moment we hopped onto our bikes all our worries were gone. The electric motor supplementing the regular peddling for traction made the ride a joy rather than stress. I just peddled up the steep roads tirelessly using the electric traction as per need. My wife enjoyed equally even though she is not regular cycler. Our already wonderful ebike nature trail was made fabulous by the company of our captain from BLive. He was very knowledgeable and courteous. He guided and educated us all along our journey and took us to some exclusive sites.
    In the end I would say the BLive ebike is a great concept not just for casual mountain biking but for regular city use also.The electric traction gives it the comfort of a motor vehicle while the preserved peddling system helps one take the health benefits of cycling. In fact two wheelers should be replaced with such hybrid ebikes. Just one suggestion for the BLive company at last:-- I wonder if these ebikes could be made more efficient and powerful by using some kind of kinetic self recharging technology.
    Keep it up Team BLive.

    The favourite part of my trip was of course the view point.
    Equally best was our guide Mr Thomas.He was full of high spirits which so lifted up our strips.
    He was compassionate and encouraging dispelling my apprehensions regarding the bike which I was getting on to after a 35 year long break!!
    Big thanks to Mr Thomas and the fantastic club Mahindra I would say this Blive bike is one of their star attractions.

    E-cycling in Coorg
    Super great concept by a young energetic team. Always dreamt of cycling in Coorg, never knew
    how or where. To start with, the cycles - electric bycycles are of very good quality. Secondly, our
    guide Sabir was as excited about taking us, as we were excited about going. Thirdly, the tour is
    very well thought out and organized

    One of the highlights of my stay in Madikeri, was the BLive Bike tour. Being a cyclist, it was one of my most looked forward to activity and to ride an electric bike was exciting. Riding on the streets of Madikeri was thrilling to say the least!

    Mr Sabeer was my guide who made sure that everything was going smoothly, from start to finish. The bikes were very well maintained and a delight to ride. The ride was planned to perfection with planned scenic spots that only a true local would know! The experience was not tiring at all but was totally rewarding. These are the sights of Madikeri you should see, over the ones recommended, I strongly feel.

    Would do it again... and again and again... Thank you, Sabeer!☺️

    Riding the EBike was in itself real fun and a fantastic experience. And It was made much more interesting and fun and very educative, thanks to Thomas who was the captain and Jitin the vice captain. Their knowledge of the area was immense and the plantation tour was interesting. There was also a very small trekking, from where we were able to view the Kodagu mountain range in all its splendor. There were 10 like minded guests in this tour and we all had a blast doing Kodava regional dance steps taught enthusiastically by Thomas. All in all a fantastic outing. Not to be missed fun outing definitely.

    Cycle could have been better maintained, the mud guard was out and was moving while riding.
    More scenic stops can be added with a few more stops for tender coconut or something hydrating on hot day.
    Small straw mat can be given with bag+water bottle to sit and enjoy sceneries in different spots
    Cycling tours can be timed for sun set/sun rise
