Marjorie Leighton Cycling on the Sri Lanka - Classic tour with redspokes

Marjorie Leighton, Campbeltown, Scotland, UK
Sri Lanka - Classic

Marjorie Leighton from Campbeltown, Scotland, UK rates our Sri Lanka - Classic cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This was the second redspokes trip I have done and once again it lived up to expectations. It was well organised, the cycle leaders Sampath and Chamara took us alongside canals teeming with all manner of natural beauty, over roads under construction, and of course the ‘undulating’ countryside. Our driver Ishfan was always at hand to provide water, to help with the bikes and in my case when I was riding in the van, slowing down when I wanted to take photos.
The food was wonderful and abundant, even having lunch served by a Tamil lady at a lookout stop at 1302m (4,270ft). There was always the choice of local, spicy food or the less spicy western and for most days both breakfast and evening meals were buffet style. The accommodation was of a very high standard, with some hotels having swimming pools which were very welcome after cycling in the 36 deg heat and humidity. Probably one of the nicest overnight stops (as far as character) was at Sir John’s Bungalow (John Kotelawala an ex Prime Minister of Ceylon) up in the cool of the hills. It certainly didn’t have WiFi, it only just had electricity-luckily it had cold beer!
Apart from the countryside, the ‘add ons’ to the cycling included temples, UNESCO world heritage sites, a rock fortress, spice gardens, tea factory, botanical gardens, and white water rafting.
There was wonderful natural beauty, with the mating call of peacocks a daily occurrence, monkeys, egrets, herons, land and water monitors, elephants, crocodiles, monkeys, and more kingfishers than you could wish for. The country was lush, green, with an abundance of water and magnificent tea plantations.
The people were friendly, always smiling and the children shouted ‘hello’ and ‘bye’ as we passed. We were blessed with good weather (perhaps a wee bit hot for cycling) with only a couple of late afternoon showers in Kandy.
I would thoroughly recommend the trip to anyone.

We have just returned from our wonderful Sri Lanka Classic cycle tour. As we are middle aged and not particularly fit we decided to take the e-bikes. Although these did help us, they did not stop us from getting a lot fitter by the end of the tour. Our guide Chamara and driver Janika were extremely experienced and benevolent. We learnt so much about this beautiful country from the spices and teas that are grown there, to the gems that are mined. We visited Buddhist temples and world heritage sites. The lunches were varied delicious and memorable as were the snacks, black tea and fresh coconut stops.

It was an opportunity to see parts of Sri Lanka that very few others can or do.
The people are incredibly friendly and the children run down the road after you for a ‘high five’. I don’t think that there was one moment where I didn’t have a smile on my face. Thank you “redspokes” for a wonderful tour.

Cycling on a variety of roads, lanes and tracks through countryside ranging from flat stretches along beaches and rice paddies, to high elevation forests and tea plantations, was a great way to be introduced to Sri Lanka. The accompanying support team was superb.

I highly recommend the Sri Lanka classic tour with wonderful guide Kasun Akalanka. It's a brilliant trip covering national parks, a tough uphill mountain day, meanders through rice field paths, undulating rides through tea plantations, a window into village life and immersion in tropical jungle. The food and varied accommodation are also highlights. 10/10.
