Ailsa Rutherford Cycling on the Lhasa to Kathmandu tour with redspokes

Ailsa Rutherford from Surrey, England rates our Lhasa to Kathmandu cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

The Tibet tour was an experience that will make me smile again and again. We were very lucky on our tour with the weather conditions, but luck wasn't the only thing: the teamwork and flexibility between the tour leader (David) and the Nepalese and Tibetan crew to ensure we all had a fantastic time was unsurpassed.

The food was better than I cook for myself at home and the the camping had a hint of colonial luxury. I cannot recommend redspokes more highly.

This was one of the most spectacular trips I have ever been on! The scenery was varied, awe inspiring, amazing people, very unique culture and environment. The trip was very well organised with a daily routine of: wake up to bowl of hot water, eat yummy cooked breakfast, ride all day with lunch prepared for us : ), eat some more, sleep and do it all again! Just thinking about it brings a huge smile to my face! It was truly a trip of a lifetime! I can very strongly recommend it.

To cycle across the "roof of the world" and experience the mysterious and magical world of Tibet is a dream that I can relive with others for the rest of my life. The highlights for me were to visit base camp where we stood in the face of Everest and then to cycle the world's longest downhill into Nepal.Thanks again to Dermot MacWard of redspokes and my fellow cyclist who were a joy to be with.

The trip was amazing. The scenery fantastic. Like being in another world. The distances are fine and once you are over the altitude sickness it was plain sailing. Almost all the roads are well tarmaced and I would suggest a heavy touring bike is a better choice than a mountain bike. I travelled on 35c tyres with no problems at all and much faster and smoother than the mountain bikes.

In summary the tour exceeded all expectations, the scenery, the history and culture, the changing face of civilisation, the mystique of Tibet, and the physical challenge of cycling through it has been rewarding.
I have had the time of my life!

I would have no hesitation in recommending Redspokes cycling adventure tours having had an excellent experience riding from Lhasa (Tibet) to Kathmandu (Nepal) along the Friendship Highway, with a detour to Everest Base camp. The flexibility and determination to ensure that we achieved our goals were unparalleled and several circumstances overcome that lesser organisations may have given in to. The itinerary and choice of campsites/hotels gave us every opportunity to acclimatise as well as experience different environments and maximise our chances of completing this 10/10 extreme tour. An adventure experience that I doubt I shall surpass. I would particularly like to commend Gambu Sherpa, our cycle guide who not only rode with us but also managed the whole trip superbly - always a sparkle in his eye, great cycle mechanic and so patient. Brilliant.

The group that I joined was a bit younger than me; in fact at 62 I was older than everyone's father. There were nine of us. I have been on many biking trips but this was luxurious; tents were pitched when you got to camp and taken down for you in the morning. No one expected two inch foam mats that you put your sleeping bags on. The food was excellent, not only healthy but good tasting, there was even a sort of high tea when you got in to camp.The Leaders and support staff were friendly and knowledgeable. There were three support vehicles and no was left out of sight or ran short of water. The scenery was outstanding and the last three days were mostly downhill. A fantastic trip that I have recommended to all my cycling friends.

It is rare and special privilege to cycle through such a unique and truly breathtaking part of the world. It also presents a great, and ultimately rewarding physical challenge, at least to most as there are those blessed with superhuman physiology! The experience is enhanced and the pains are eased by the great support crew and the genuine human touch which has been bought to the super organisation of all aspects of the trip and to the relationships with all the people who are involved in it.
And don't forget, Everest awaits you.

I can't thank you enough - the trip was everything I had hoped it would be and more. Suitably challenging but the great support from Lee, the Nepalese and Tibetan staff and other (rather more experienced) group members made it achievable and a truly remarkable experience. I was concerned that it was considerably cheaper than other trips, some corners may have been cut, but that certainly didn't seem to be the case. Looking forward to next years trip already although I haven't quite decided which one it will be. I will certainly be recommending redspokes to my cycling friends.
