Dana Hansen Cycling on the Nepal tour with redspokes

Dana Hansen, Calgary, Canada

Dana Hansen from Calgary, Canada rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This trip far exceeded our expectations - and we expected nothing short of amazing! The itinerary is full of variety and unforgettable experiences. Our guide, Ox, took such great care of us. We were well fed and the accommodations were wonderful. Each day brought a new journey of discovery in a beautiful country with friendly locals. Ox worked very hard behind the scenes to ensure that all we had to worry about was simply pedaling our bikes and he took care of everything else.

This was our first tour with redspokes, but it certainly won't be our last!

An amazing trip due to the jaw- dropping scenery, exhilarating cycling and determination of our guide, Ox to give us an understanding of the history and life in Nepal. Truly unforgettable!

Never in my wildest dreams could I have dreamt just how incredible this adventure to Nepal would be!

Although I’ve been a cyclist for many years, I’ve never been on a guided tour before so this was something entirely new. Knowing that support, food and water was never far away helped no end and the sight of Mr Mamalay and his van in the distance was a blessed relief on several occasions! Although I thought I was reasonably fit, I think I underestimated the effort required; this was some seriously tough mountain biking. Most nights after dinner we were tucked up in bed by at least 9 o’clock if not earlier; utterly exhausted!

For me, the trip wasn’t all about the cycling. Some moments during the long days will stay with me forever; one of the girls in the group planting rice in a paddy field, being able to sit in on a Buddhist ceremony, sharing the ‘Holi’ festival with countless, happy, smiling, painted children, one of the boys in the group ploughing a paddy field behind 2 confused cows, goats on a bus; dancing at a wedding and flying by the seat of our pants through the mountains up to Jomsom. So many memories! All of these little ‘extras’ were made possible by one man; the legend who is ‘Ox’. The hardest working, most patient and happy, tough guy I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. Don’t ever call this a holiday; it’s an epic adventure that will push you to your limits and be etched on your memory for ever more. Book now!!

David Richards from Swindon, England, UK rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This was without doubt an exceptionally well organised and managed trip, largely due to the unflagging dedication of the lead guide 'Ox' and his support team, all of whom worked tirelessly to ensure every member of the trip enjoyed an amazing experience. The balance of demanding cycling on and off road, and in-country experiences interacting with locals and the local way of life was perfect.

Our group was of mixed ability, yet the guides ensured we all got what we wanted out of the trip and were very well looked after throughout. They could not have done more, and I am really grateful to Ox and team for making my trip everything that I had hoped for, and much more! Thank you.

Amazing trip. Nepal really was the trip of a lifetime, very well organised and action packed with
stunning scenery and varied terrain.
Our guide Ox was fantastic and was keen to make sure every one was happy and well looked after.

Don't think about it, just book it now you wont regret it!

Lorna & John Forsythe Cycling on the Nepal tour with redspokes

Lorna & John Forsythe, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK

Lorna & John Forsythe from Edinburgh, Scotland, UK rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This tour was incredible, there was so much to it: challenging cycling, breathtaking scenery, which changed from the plains, to the hills and then amazing mountains. But it was the personal aspect of it that was most amazing: our guide Ox was superb, he really showed us Nepali life. He clearly balances the clients' needs with the local community and was always keen that we saw what rural life in Nepal is about.

We loved the fun of having a go at planting rice, watched by the entire village, and trying ploughing with oxen. I felt as if we really saw Nepal, from the craziness of Kathmandu, through the stunning rural aspects to the mountains and bleak beauty of the Himalayas.

Harri Wilson Cycling on the Nepal tour with redspokes

Harri Wilson, Glasgow, Scotland

Harri Wilson from Glasgow, Scotland rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

The Nepal tour far outstripped my expectations on every level. The food was all excellent, and none of us ever got sick (our guide, Ox, was extremely careful and conscientious - even cooking some of our food himself when we stopped at roadside kitchens - and we had very very good food from places you would never have picked yourself, thanks to his local knowledge). The accommodation was much better than I expected - we had electricity every night, and everywhere was clean even when it was very basic. I am a competitive road rider with little mountain biking experience, and although the distances were low the routes were technical enough to be very challenging in many places, but with enough variety that it was still enjoyable. I would say you need at least one of fitness and skill for this trip, but not necessarily both - our group was of mixed backgrounds but we all managed fine. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking too!

The real highlight for me was the Nepali people - everyone was incredibly welcoming and friendly, and even as a female travelling alone I never felt unsafe exploring big cities such as Pokhara and Kathmandu. It was a lovely feeling to connect with and be welcomed by so many people as we cycled through the villages. Where we cycled on bigger roads (not very often), the traffic was fine and generally well behaved. There were plenty of times we all ended up on foot due to the challenging terrain, so if you are in road cleats (as I was) I'd definitely recommend carrying and using a set of cleat covers. High SPF suncream is a must, particularly for the high altitude days. A buff or pollution mask helps with the dusty roads and for walking around in the cities. A swimsuit for the hot springs came in handy too! We were very well fed, and I didn't use much of the cycling food I brought with me, but I did use electrolyte tablets - it was very hot on some days. If I did this trip again, I would only bring a small micro fleece towel as backup (rather than a full size one - they were always available), and I would bring more transitional clothes - short sleeved jerseys with arm warmers, shorts with leg warmers etc were used a lot more than the softshell jackets etc that I took. A decent waterproof cycling jacket was very useful too. I bought cheap baggy shorts in Kathmandu and wore them over lycra instead of expensive mountain biking shorts - there is plenty of knock-off gear for sale. Overall, this trip was a fantastic experience that was only possible with the level of knowledge and experience provided by the guides, and I'd absolutely recommend it to people with a solid cycling or mountain biking background

Roger Hill Cycling on the Nepal tour with redspokes

Roger Hill, Crawley, United Kingdom

Roger Hill from Crawley, United Kingdom rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

The trip included more than other tour companies did and yet the price was still very competitive. The trip included the amazing internal flight and cycling up to Muktinath which none of the others did, so that's why I chose it.

The trip was made so enjoyable by Ox. He had a great sense of humour and worked so hard to help all of us with any problems we had. He helped get my suitcase when it arrived a day late on my arrival. He arranged to get an sd card for my go- pro. Ox helped make it the best adventure holiday ever.

Paul Mansfield from Poole, England, UK rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

I'm an avid cyclist and lead many local groups on MTB and road rides although i have never been on a cycle tour before. Our team lead by Ox were exceptional at managing and satisfying the needs of the whole group which inevitably have different requirements and abilities.

The balance between being a cycling challenge and a cultural inside to an extraordinary country where also planned and managed exceptionally well.

Katja Stille Cycling on the Nepal tour with redspokes

Katja Stille, London, UK

Katja Stille from London, UK rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

I have had yet another great experience on this red spokes trip!!! This tour through Nepal gives a very good insight into the varied landscape this beautiful country has to offer, from rainforest to majestic mountain terrain of the Himalayas - we saw it all.

Ox made this trip even more special through many little treats, such as random stops to learn about local craft, impromptu meditation lessons in a temple and opportunities to taste the local food cooked by Ox himself. Ox’s flexibility ensured that we saw a lot. Our group was amazing and very supportive of each other as we tackled some challenging terrain.

Thank you Redspokes and everyone in the group !

Weland Mahar Cycling on the Nepal tour with redspokes

Weland Mahar, Australia

Weland Mahar from Australia rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This tour is intelligently structured and well planned. Lowland heat and mountain cold, lots of climbing and some very long days. Every day was different, and the tour has so much more than just riding. Our group was from many countries and the banter was funny - a great bunch.

You'll need to be reasonably fit and confident on a mountain bike over rough terrain to get the most out of this ride, we trained a little bit by doing some long climbs at home and it really helped. Our guide Ox, was very experienced, flexible and funny - he did a lot of work behind the scenes, and it showed, as everything went smoothly. I'd recommend this tour to anyone. Great fun, you see so much and it left me wanting more.

Christian Clausing Cycling on the Nepal tour with redspokes

Christian Clausing, Narrabundah, Australia

Christian Clausing from Narrabundah, Australia  rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

The trip was amazing. Problems when visiting countries is that you do not get to see anything that is not a tourist attraction. On this trip, while we visited some major tourist attractions, we also were able to roll through some very small towns and meet some of the locals, mostly children who were more than happy to say hello and race you by foot. Ox and the other support guides go beyond to help.

Over the trip several of us had bike issues and they would hardly let us help, jumping straight into the problem and fixing it for us, even if it was our personal bikes that were breaking down. The ride itself was at times quite difficult and I was glad that I spend most of my riding on a mountain bike, dealing with uneven and difficult terrain. I would suggest that you are a confident with rock and dust downhill riding. I cannot recommend this trip enough, the people, the food, the sights and the culture was absolutely amazing.

Paul Goulding Cycling on the Nepal tour with redspokes

Paul Goulding, Merseyside, United Kingdom

Paul Goulding from Merseyside, United Kingdom rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This trip is adventure, and a trip of a life time. We were taken from the the lowlands and tropical warm air, to the highlands of majestic mountain peaks all from the seat of a bicycle, and the one man who made so many things happen was our leader Ox. More than a guide, simple a man who never stopped from making sure we had a great time putting the customer first time and time again truly a diamond of a asset to Dermot and redspokes. 

Trish and Darren Whitaker Cycling on the Nepal tour with redspokes

Trish and Darren Whitaker from Darwin, Australia rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

We both loved this trip and will remember the adventure forever- we have done about 5 other organized cycling trips as well as independent extensive world cycle trips.

Of course every trip is different and it is hard to compare but we will remember our time in Nepal forever and the feedback from friends about our photos has been amazing. Thanks again.

Christine Versteegden from Amstelveen, Netherlands rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

Memorable, on this tour a lot of Nepal has been shown: mountains and 'hills', beautiful landscapes and nature, accompanied with the guide's interesting stories, the delicious variety of food. We cycled with good support and nothing to worry about. I have very good memories about this tour.

I can highly recommend the redspokes Nepal bike tour.It offered a good overview of Nepal with the Kathmandu Valley region,the Chitwan and of course the Annapurna region.Tour guide "Ox" is the hardest working person I have ever met.He is a great guide and seems to know every person we met in the small villages.I enjoyed our visits as we climbed from the back of the pack-he is also the first person to call me "Canada" for two weeks.

Doug Pulleyblank Cycling on the Nepal tour with redspokes

Doug Pulleyblank, Vancouver, Canada

Doug Pulleyblank from Vancouver, Canada rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This was my first cycling tour ever and I had an amazing trip. I think the only hard thing about the entire trip was some of the cycling itself -- going up and down some of those Nepali 'flats' was sometimes a challenge. But the cycling challenge was exactly what I was looking for. It's why I signed on! Apart from that, Ox, Sunil, Ram and others made everything easy, from pick-up at the airport, to getting set up in hotels, to seeing parts of Kathmandu, to experiencing all kinds of things in the parts of Nepal we were able to visit. They dealt with both expected problems (like the occasional flat tire) and unexpected problems (like airline complications) efficiently, occasionally creatively, and with good humour. The tour was marked by flexibility.

I was definitely more of a mountain biker by the end of the tour than I was at the beginning. Great tour! Great team! Thanks, Ox, Ram & Sunil -- I'd recommend your team to anyone!

Amidst the colorful culture, chaotic streets and overwhelming beauty, our guide, Ox, made our Nepalese experience personal and memorable! He always had perfectly timed stops with tea and food in small tea houses along the way. It felt as if everyone we met along the way was his friend and happy to share their time with us

This trip fulfilled all my expectations ,the cycling,culture and scenery were amazing. Ox the tour leader was very proactive in making sure every one in the party got the maximum out of this trip.

The bikes were brand new and stood up to the job in hand very well.I would not hesitate to recommend this tour and redspokes to anyone.

Ox and his amazing team made our two week bike ride through Nepal magical. They were so friendly, helpful, fun and supportive, they were just perfect!

Nepal is such a colourful, fascinating country full of friendly, caring people. The scenery is beyond beautiful and the tour takes in a perfect combination of all Nepal has to offer. Thank you to Ox and his team for a very special two weeks!

Another great trip with redspokes with fantastic scenary & a great group of people with good support from Ox & his crew.

This is challenging tour with at least half of trip more associated with technical mountain biking than road biking as tarmac to rough rocky roads is about 50/50 with tough climbs.

Andre Schmid Cycling on the Nepal tour with redspokes

Andre Schmid from Gattikon, Switzerland rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 4.5 out of 5

Brillant trip, as the weather and the views couldn't be any better. Ox as a tour leader did very well, he's very well connected everywhere. Nice combination of the cycling with the safari in chitwan.

Trip is definitely tougher than other "6" ratings, technically as well as physically.

Richard Matheson from Leeds, England, UK rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

As good as any of the 7 tours I've done, one of the best! Ox and his crew were superb, good humoured and worked tirelessly to make the trip enjoyable. A great group of people/ fellow cyclists who were a pleasure to ride with.

Food was local and tasty, the mountains as I'd always dreamed they'd be, dramatic and striking. The terrain is challenging but never dull. And finally the Nepali people are kind and welcoming. A highly recommended trip.

 Justin Pearce Cycling on the Nepal tour with redspokes

 Justin Pearce from Dunbar, Scotland, UK rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

We had a very small group but that allowed us to greatly experience the culture of Nepal and Ox was a great catalyst in making this happen. The rides were often quite technical, but nothing that we couldn't overcome...eventually.

Ox ensured that the balance between sampling village life in Nepal and time in the saddle worked perfectly. If I were to repeat this trip, I would spend time practising cycling over rocks and I would definitely take a GoPro - the crazy descents would be worth experiencing again.

Piero Tassinari from Meldola, Italy rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

Four days have passed since I left Nepal, nevertheless its stunning sceneries are hovering in my mind while driving my car or walking within the familiar surroundings. This trip has bewitched me!

Since the first finding the redspokes website I had the feeling the people involved in the trip organization knew their job pretty well; then I had a long talk on the phone with Dermot, and my enthusiasm grew up to the point of signing up.

In Nepal I have experienced an unforgettable adventure, thanks also to our tour leader Ox. He proved not only very efficient, coping with all the needs related to the tour organization, but was also a pretty delightful person and we had great fun and so much laughing ... this helped a lot to elate our spirits when the road had worn us out!

I'm 61, I try to keep in shape cycling all the year round ... but guess what? I thought it would be easier, just a piece of cake. Well, some stages proved very demanding, especially the sections off road ... but I always could rely on our guide's assistance, always close, always helpful ... and in the evening, warming up our bodies and spirits around the bonfire, I could say:

"I did it, it was worth it, what a scenery!" Piero, the Italian of the Nepal tour crew

Nepal is a fabulous place and Ox and his team go out of their way to show you everything the country has to offer. They want you to experience all of their culture, if you want something they haven't thought of they will try and get it for you but don't be too harsh if it is not the Nepalese way it is what will bring us back again and again. Enjoy the Nepalese Flat!

Robert Thomson from Western Australia rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This was an amazing experience and a really worthwhile tour. We rode on every kind of surface possible from smooth roads to almost impassable rutted stony tracks. Ox was a great leader with very good local knowledge and everywhere we went people knew and admired him. The scenery was often just so spectacular and quite unforgettable.

The Nepalese people seem blessed with the happiness gene, and were friendly everywhere, no matter how poor (and there is a lot of poverty). Any mechanical issues were sorted out on the road by the support crew - no problem. Thanks redspokes!

This was an unforgettable trip. The cycling was challenging over different surfaces, inclines and traffic conditions. Each day brought a new experience and was unique in its own way. Ox is a legend. Supported by Milan and Marmalay, he did so much to make sure we got to know the real Nepal, as best we could in two weeks, and that we got the most from our visit.

Nathaniel Lloyd, Zurich, Switzerland

Nathaniel Lloyd from Zurich, Switzerland  rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

Ox and his team exceeded my expectations, they were extremely professional and did everything in their power to make the tour run as smoothly as possible. Whenever something went wrong, such as when Tobi and I had our flight to Jomsom cancelled for two days in a row due to bad weather, Ox would pour limitless energy into resolving the problem. In the case of the Jomsom flight problem, we watched other tour groups turn sour as their prospects of getting on a flight vanished. We were lucky to have Ox, while the other groups were arguing with the airline he was quietly booking us on the next helicopter up.

Ox was also extremely good at understanding what each person in the group expected out of the tour. He had guides to go ahead with the fast riders, he made sure the slow riders were ok and encouraged them to take their time and enjoy, he always made sure the end of the day was as organized as possible and he was always up in the morning making sure the bikes were ready and the plans for the day organized. On our days off he was also busy working and his boys busy cleaning bikes.

Without Ox this trip would have been much less enjoyable, he socialized extremely well with all people in the tour, and has an extremely large Nepalese social network to draw help from when something needs to be resolved or fixed. Ox and his team were absolutely committed to making the most out of the tour, his guides and driver were also extraordinary.

In conclusion - I don't think there is another Ox, or team as strong as his, in Kathmandu.

I had a great time on the Nepal tour, it was an amazing experience and I hope to cherish the memories for some time.

Nepal is hard to put in to words, the people are friendly and the scenery of is outstanding, including many of the ordinary houses and buildings. One of the enduring images is the smiling happy children that love to wave and say 'Namaste', 'Hello', or 'Bye Bye' as you cycle past, many of them wanting to run to keep up with you or try to beat you!

redspokes is a well organised outfit, all the logistics were handled really well and all our group of 8 people really enjoyed our time spent on and off the bike. I would definitely recommend a trip with redspokes to Nepal. It's highly likely I will be choosing another trip next year. - Robert Armitage (NEP 9)

Cycling the back half of the Annapurna circuit was incredible. Easily some of the most spectacular cycling I’ve ever done. And the ride from Daman down to Hetauda, with 50 kilometres of almost uninterrupted freewheeling will never be forgotten. This is an incredible tour!

The attention to detail of the tour leader Ox was very impressive. There was a lot of thought and care put into this trip and it made it a very good one. I loved interacting with the Nepalese, cooking, dancing, ploughing, rice planting, monks prayers and tours of the temples made you feel as though you really got to know Nepal. The Himalayas were truly amazing.

A thoroughly enjoyable tour.

Ox and his team. Sunnil, Ram. Were awesome. They made it very easy for us to enjoy ourselves. They kept us on track, well fed, informed. It was an amazing trip. Got to see remote Buddhist Temples, Rhinos, bike in the Himalayas, eat lots of Dal Bat, and bike in all types of climate. Wild. I already want to go back.

My flight time changed last second and I found out 25 minutes before departure and somehow Ox and Sunnil got me to the flight on time. We were in the middle of Kathmandu. Good work. I would highly recommend taking a trip with Ox and his team.

Great opportunity to see Chitwan NP plus the west side of the famed Annupurna circuit trek from the seat of an mtn bike on very challenging terrain and dirt track. Loved the stops for tea and lunch in the villages. Ox was friendly and encouraging.

Thomas Preston from South East, England, UK rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

Having been on many supported trips in Asia, the situation of lodging and food is always somewhat of an adventure; but usually wonderful, and this trip was no exception. Regardless, the best or worst accommodations and/or food quality become secondary when the guide is a caring and enthusiastic person, such as Mr. Ox in Nepal. No matter the distance, weather, conditions, lodging, food, or whatever, Ox was always there to be a positive force in every aspect of our trip!

We both had a fantastic time on this trip. Ox & his team are great fun, and are very good at what they do. The rest of the group were a great bunch, and we'll all stay friends for a long time.
A trip full of wonderful memories with fantastic people, and a country so beautifully varied in landscape and cultures..... Not to mention the 'Nepalese Flat' ;)

David Harris from Luz-Lagos, Portugal rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

I can hardly imagine a better local team: Omniscient omnipotent Ox - shepherding us (mostly) Nepal neophytes through a diverse voyage of discovery. The ever grinning, ever encouraging Turek - ready for any eventuality. And Lama, always there with great snacks & water, water, water. And, check out his 'stealth' mode: filling our bike bottles without anyone noticing - amazing. 3 of the hardest working guys I have ever seen!

This tour has some of the most spectacular bicycling on the planet interwoven with a broad range of rich cultural experiences. Spent with a great group of open-minded, inquisitive and enthusiastic fellow cyclists, this became a truly life-affirming adventure.

And the Nepalese? The poverty of these people will break your heart but their nobility will lift it up again!

So many thanks redspokes.

What a wonderful trip! Thanks for supporting us so much for the Thorung La attempt and organizing flights/helicopter, guide, hotels... These were the best mountains I ever did on my bike.

And Ox and the guides were such a fantastic team to explain Nepal and help in every situation (plus teaching us how to eat with hands properly). 11/10 points!

Having never been on an organised tour before or even on a cycling holiday I found this trip to be very enjoyable. Quite a sociable holiday and I got to see places in Nepal which I would not have got too normally.

Ox the guide with his team were very capable and I felt they could handle any situation thrown at them. Overall a great time and I felt good value for money.

A great journey with stunning scenery and sometimes challenging cycling over varied 'undulating' terrain. 

Our leader, Ox, dealt very well with the logistical difficulties thrown up by the late monsoon; flights were rearranged, landslides were bypassed and beer was supplied. I had been to Nepal twice before trekking in the high mountains, but this tour was no less enjoyable for it, staying away from the main tourist areas for days at a time and showing a different side to the country.

I thought the trip was very well organised, and good value for money. The food and accommodation were better than expected- we were in Nepal after all.

I thought Ox did an outstanding job- his networking and interpersonal skills were exceptional.

I like the redspokes philosophy of combining cycling and travel with assisting the local economy by spending with the locals.

Jonathan Pearce from Marrickville, NSW rates our Nepal cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This was a challenging tour as accurately described by redspokes. The cycling both on and off- road was hard but rewarding.

The guide Ox was tremendous, often in quite difficult situations - strikes, etc. He was able to manage the differing abilities within the group excellently and coped with any emergencies that arose with calmness, patience and humour.

If you're bringing your own bike, make sure it's up to the task- it'll take a hammering. White water rafting was awesome, great shopping, too. We had a fantastic group- Brits, Kiwis and an Aussie

Fantastic riding every day, which was sometimes quite challenging, and the right amount of rest days. What really made this trip stand out and be so rewarding was the variety of landscape and terrain. Definitely more mountain biking than touring, but in the best possible way.

Nepal was not what I expected, it was dustier and busier and more full of life. Definitely worth it - just book it. Then get training!

The Nepal cycling trip completely exceeded my expectations & it was challenging in many ways (not just the terrain, suspension bridges, rivers & hills but the toilets too!).

Our guide Lee was excellent, striking the right balance between being in charge & joining in. Nepali guide Ox was always keen to make things happen & provided great local support. Food would get a 9/10, accommodation mostly 8/10 (on a Nepali scale) although a couple of nights' accommodation could be improved upon.

The scenery was breath-taking & the locals very friendly. Not once did I feel intimidated as I have done in some other countries. I would not hesitate to recommend this trip to anyone. Go for it!

A fantastic and challenging experience. Enhanced by the like minded people on the tour and calm efficiency of Lee and Ox.

Lots of highs and a few lows but great support and oh how we laughed! A brilliant trip.

The Nepal tour was excellent and an extremely enjoyable 2.5 weeks. Ox was a fantastic guide; he and his team were very helpful and did everything they could for us. His knowledge of all the different areas was great and he was always willing to spend time with group and answer any questions that they had. He dealt well with the differing levels of ability in the group and also took care of food and drink stops.

Fantastic country, glorious scenery, wonderful people and amazing cycling - very hard to beat either the 45km climb or the 4 hour descent! redspokes has a brilliant itinerary that shows off this tiny but varied country to the full. Ox (our guide) and his crew were simply brilliant - nothing too big that couldn't be sorted and nothing too small that it got overlooked.

Just go - you know you want to!

You are going to have to train hard but it's worth it. The landscape is spectacular and our group was great fun, full of characters.

Loads of laughs and a real sense of achievement.

My wife (Judy) and I were really looking to do something very different with our holiday. The Nepal cycling trip was everything we were hoping for. The people were so friendly, the scenery and landscapes breath taking, the cycling tough but enormously rewarding and finally the great people we shared this experience with.

I can't speak more highly of our guide Ox and his team. Please pass our thanks onto him as he wasn't just helpful but was a real character in our group and made some of the tougher days easier to get through.

I would recommend redspokes and this trip to anybody (and have) with a sense of adventure. Thank you!

Enjoyed the cycle ride through Nepal in April. So much varied scenery from the green rice fields in the south to the spectacular mountain landscape further north. Also varied rides from the bustle of Kathmandu using small tracks linking local villages to those fabulous downhill switchbacks and not forgetting the more challenging off road sections in the mountains.

I felt supported throughout the tour and encouraged when my energy began to run out, probably should have eaten more dhal bhat.

Thanks for a memorable adventure.

Each day was challenging and interesting. Suresh, our leader, managed to cater for all our cycling abilities by using the other guides wisely. Even the rest days were packed full of fun. Ambir the driver could sing and dance Nepali style very well and with the good voices of the 4 guides we received great entertainment around the camp fire.

Deepak the cook and his helpers gave us more variety than we had expected. They never failed to amaze us with the type of meals and the quantities they could turn out from inside a tent. Loca kept the logistics running smoothly so all we had to do was cycle eat and sleep. All in all it was a great tour and we will find it difficult to top it.

I had an excellent time, the variety of rides, challenges, terrain and scenery coupled with unsurpassed support and service from all the guides and supporters made for a great holiday despite problems encountered with my own bike. May have ruined biking back home in the UK as I can't see me being able to get the sense of achievement or exhilaration that was got from everyone involved.

Looking forward to giving the Tibet trip a go in the near future with Suresh hopefully as guide.

An excellent trip with fellow travelers who became friends along the way. The mountain biking in Nepal is still inspiring me back at home. Good wishes to Ox, Milan, Sunil, and our driver who took good care of us along the waY.

A very good trip that provides a varied selection of rides that cover all the main terrains that Nepal has to offer. The eleven days of cycling provide everything from a city tour of Kathmandu to the extremes of cycling at over 3,500 metres in the arid and barren Himalayan landscape that is so visually impressive that it's hard to describe to people who haven't experienced it.

In between you explore the hills (2,500 metres at Damam) and the flat of the Terai. All of this combined with very friendly and helpful locals and fabulous food. A trip that should not be missed.
