Here are what some of our customers have had to say about our Nepal cycling holidays...
Ian James, Cornwall, England
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.
JP CHARON, Troon, Scotland
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.
Graeme Guilford, Matmata, New Zealand
I had a wonderful trip, with a wide variation in accommodation which gave us a real feel for Nepal. Ox our guide was really excellent and coped withevery situation calmly and efficiently.
From the cities to the little villages to the amazing scenery, a trip to remember.
Paul Noonan, New Zealand
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.
BeeJay, Cowes, Isle of Wight, England
Great trip, very diverse and well organised. The balance between hard and easy days worked really well and I never felt tired or over stretched on any of the days..
Ox was a great people person and always had a smile on his face no matter what situation was thrown at him..Really good guide, great team and brilliant holiday so thank you redspokes.
Robert Armitage, Huddersfield, UK
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)
Jonathan Pearce, Marrickville, NSW
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
Trish and Darren Whitaker, Darwin, Australia
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.
Ros Lawson, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK
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!
Jo Reaves, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK
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.
