Imagine yourself cycling through this heart of Kochi, learning centuries of history and hearing lesser-known secrets and legends. You'd be cycling through the renowned Chinese, Portuguese, Dutch and English edifices of the Fort, detouring to the lesser-known native capital of the Cochin Kingdom called Mattancherry where 35 different communities that speak close to 15 languages of varied culture and traditions happily coexist creating a microcosm of the world itself.
Every Kochiite, or anyone for that matter should be in awe of this unique composition that gave Kochi its history and multicultural identity. You will find where the fort is, the hidden alleyways that connect the fort to Mattancherry, explore its mysteries while getting a glimpse of everyday life, finally winding down the old bazaar with its lingering odour of spices. Burn some calories while enjoying fascinating stories about Kochi's history, culture, myths, legends and pop culture. Join us and pedal through history.
The ride can be ended with a sumptuous curated meal at a local eatery. See Lila Fort Kochi Food Connection.
