The highlight of the trip was the service provided by the local teams in both Tibet and Nepal; nothing was too much trouble and they made the trip extra special!

Ox and his crew could really have not done any more for us, great food and plenty of it (We are like kings!) whilst camping in amazing locations. They comfortably sorted out any issues that arrised and took us to see the real Tibet and Nepal in all their beauty away from the commercialised centres.

This was not an easy trip but it was a great trip. Before signing up, I had no idea what it would be like to go over multiple 5,000m passes. Now I know. I now know what it's like (answer = hard: effects of elevation, effects of long climbs (at elevation), wind, snow, sun, etc.), and I also know that I can do it. I did it!
The country is beautiful. Everything is so big. Sometimes vistas were similar to other places I've been, but always on a bigger scale. Whenever things got tough in terms of the biking, I would find myself at the back of the group, which meant that I would be with Ox (who was riding sweep). He saw everything that happened in the group, how people were riding, who was having problems.
This was not my first trip with Ox -- I hope that it is not my last!!

What a fantastic trip ! The weather, altitude and the stunning beauty of the highest mountains in the world all combine into one of the hardest and most rewarding experiences. The excellent care from the guides and crew helped to make this a trip of a lifetime and we would not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone wanting the ultimate cycling holiday.

I didn't really know what I was letting myself in for before I started, although Dermot (from redspokes) did a really good job in making sure that my head was ready to deal with the trip, even if my legs weren't. Each turn of the cranks got us one step nearer to completing the journey. I am really proud of myself for completing the trip, despite the fact that I had one bad day, when Dave was incredibly supportive in getting me to the finishing line. You can't control the weather '“ though this was mercifully kind to us '“ but you can control the quality of leadership and back-up support provided and this far exceeded my expectations. It was absolutely superb and I would have no hesitation in recommending others to undertake this and similar trips with you.

This is a tough trip with long cycling days and extreme attitudes and depending on the time of the year it can also be cold. But the compensation is wonderful vistas and the experience of very different cultures. From Mountains, to Everest base camp, to bustle of Lhasa and in particular Kathmandu, to the decent from 3,700m to just over 1,000m on the worlds longest cycle decent along a river valley which from a beauty perspective truly takes your breath away.If you like extremes this is a trip not to be missed thanks to redspokes.

We highly recommend this trip. It is physically and psychologically challenging, but with good preparation the satisfaction with completing the ride is immense. All of this in a spectacular mountain setting. We think the 24 day format is excellent in allowing time for acclimatization and savouring the experience. Excellent work from the whole support team meant all our needs and wants were met, leaving us free to concentrate on cycling and enjoyment. Thanks to redspokes for an unforgettable cycling experience!!

It was a great experience and a marvelous trip through the best scenery ever! The support team was great; all nice guys! Teamleader Ox was very attentive and careful. Our Tibettan guide Migma was a great addition to the team because of his knowledge of culture and history and his drive to share it with us. The cook did his utmost to feed and please us. Hear, hear ! In a way we were lucky that the tour couldn't go as far as Kathmandu, because the Nepal/Chinese border was closed. Because of that, our tour consisted of 25 % unpaved road through a great and desolated countryside. A second advantage was that there were less heavy trucks on the road. We think it is important that your potential clients are aware of the fact that a regular tour is 98 % tarmac with sometimes heavy traffic.

Anne Hillman from Southport, UK rates our Lhasa to Kathmandu cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

A trip which certainly deserved its 10 out of 10 rating, but worth all the effort and training. Some days were challenging but the rewards were awsome ...magnificent, breath taking scenery goes without saying, and it was different, so very different each and every day. Watching the Tibetans make mud bricks, collect the harvest, thresh the grain, plough the fields with their wonderful yaks, move everything from horses to food to children in their magnificent tiny tractors was a privilege. Their smiles lit up their faces and their waves of encouragement as we passed helped the legs keep going.The magnificence of the Himalayas will stay in my mind forever ...but the faces of the people and their deep affinity with their surrounding will lift my spirit and make me burst into a very very big smile

My first redspokes trip and hopefully there will be many more. Such a fantastic experience and superbly organised but still in a relaxed 'nothing is '˜too much trouble' manner . Both before and after booking all my queries and requests were taken care of by Dermot, Bryony or Ann who were swift in getting back to me. Cycling the 'roof of the world' is amazing and the feelings you get cannot be put into words. Each day the ride never ceases to amaze you with different surroundings and each day seemed to end at an even better place to stay with enough time to enjoy it and then the support team would produce amazing food for all. The group was a nice size with a good blend of people and the camaraderie which occurs on a trip like this was fantastic to experience. All in all we were looked after superbly and the itinerary is well put together so you get the chance to acclimatise and there is plenty of time each day for the rides. I stayed in Nepal before and after the trip and redspokes were very helpful with ideas and organisation for this.
