Rural Bike Ride
A trail through scenic rice paddies, rubber and cinnamon estates
Take a ride through the leafy, scenic back-roads of a typical southern village that lies inland from Weligama. The trail snakes its way alongside lush rice paddies, rubber and cinnamon estates, small-holder plantations and home gardens, places of worship, rural homes – several that feature architecture from traditional as well as colonial styles – and other points of interests such as the local “kade” – i.e. a small scale local “boutique” that is at the heart of day to day necessities of village life. A colourful array of birdlife is also a key feature.
