Here are what some of our customers have had to say about our Nepal cycling holidays...
Linda Hoff, Malmo, Sweden
Amazing tour with lots of variation and new challenges every day. Very well planed itenerary and excellent guide and staff.
Christian Clausing, Narrabundah, Australia
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.
Eliza Wolfson, Bristol, UK
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!
Andre Schmid, Gattikon, Switzerland
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.
Jesse Dudley, Pennsylvania, USA
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.
Justin Pearce, Dunbar, Scotland, UK
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.
Steve Lahey, Scarborough, Australia
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!
Joseph Lee, Toronto, Canada
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!
Robert Thomson, Western Australia
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!
Thomas Preston, South East, England, UK
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!
