Here are what some of our customers have had to say about our Indian Himalayas cycling holidays...
Kenneth Fant, Sweden
I went on this tour because I wanted to go on my bicycle in the Himalayas, with the security of support. But I wasn't really prepared for the impact the scenery and the mountains would have on me. For me this was a fantastic trip with everything into it. Amazing mountains and challenging cycling, a true adventure with a great support from the local crew. Still looking back to this tour and feeling very lucky that I had the possibility to go on this tour. Will never forget it.
King Ho Tan, Hong Kong
I was very impressed with Raju and his team, for being so attentive, caring and ensuring that everyone's well being are well taken care of. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.
Reggie Johnston, Berkshire, UK
Well, what an incredible adventure! Extreme and adventure seem to equal "Exhilaration" and this trip has it is bucket loads. It was well thought out and paced by Raju, the stops were well planned for effort and acclimatization, the scenery is breath-taking both figuratively and literally- the altitude takes some adjusting to, and you feel a sense of pride in doing it by bike rather than motor bike or bus! The support team are simply superb and the food is plentiful and freshly prepared every evening.
Alice Appleton, Leeds, England, UK
A wonderful trip, very well organised and with a superb support system so that everyone who could ride that day/section was encouraged and enabled, but anyone who was sick or otherwise couldn't ride was assisted swiftly and with compassion but no fuss. A great adventure - thoroughly recommended.
John Fisher, Leeds, England, UK
From stepping off the plane in Delhi to riding the highest mountain pass in the world the trip was special and full of extremes and beauty. There were very tough moments and the challenges were met by a great group of people helped and guided by the local people, The support and back up were fantastic and with everyone coming home in one piece a great testimony to a well planned expedition.
Aniki and Henk, Netherlands
The Himalaya trip was truly magnificent: beautiful scenery, high challenging mountains, interesting and impressive culture. This all went smoothly due to reliable local crew: many thanks to Raju, Sabu and Keshu and all other crew members!
Rodney Ross, Hong Kong
What an adventure. The redspokes team lead by Raju and Manny looked after us from beginning to end. They listened, advised, adjusted, worried, supported, celebrated, entertained and helped make a memorable trip.
Apart from the amazing location, other participants were a highlight. Interesting fun thoughtful considerate people, always willing to give a helping hand and teach you how to climb a hill efficiently or adjust brakes effectively, or to laugh and share the journey. Two even returned after a 5000m+ pass to encourage me on the last 1km as I struggled up. A great trip, great people, great scenery.
Rebecca Wardell, New ZealandThe trip was outstanding, had an amazing time and it was really well organised, thank you, a trip of a lifetime!
Kathryn Phillips, New Zealand
What an incredible experience. The scenery was so dramatic, so stunning and changed so dramatically across our journey. The altitude made the journey challenging, but also resulted in a wonderful camaraderie emerging between all the members of the group as we battled to the top of each pass.The trip was superbly run and the support offered by our guides was brilliant. The final challenge of tackling Khardung La on the final day was the perfect end to an incredible journey. If you're up for a challenge, willing to give things a go and have the experience of a lifetime - do this trip.
Ian Kirkland, Australia
Would highly recommend this trip into the heart of the Indian Himalayas. Manali and Leh are both very picturesque towns and the route between them takes you through some stunning scenery. Very well organised. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for Ragu and his team. The two cycling guides, Naveen and Vee, both spoke near perfect English and were great company on the road. The camp meals were tasty and varied and the food plentiful ( which was fortunate as everyone seemed continually hungry).
There is a lot of climbing on the trip and the road surface is pretty rough in some places but some great downhill sections as well. A very enjoyable trip all in.
