100KM Mumbai Cycling Circuit

So I wanted to test my endurance level, and I decided to make my own custom cycling circuit. Which eventually I thought, why not go around Mumbai city.

The circuit which I made:

Here I made a change in my plan, as I was exhausted I have cut short my circuit. From here I was supposed to goto NH4 and reach Panvel and from Panvel-Sion Expressway reach Mumbai. Looking after conditions I then moved for Plan-B, directly goto Sion and Mumbai.

Got again hydrated and intaked some calories.
