Richard Cohen Cycling on the Sri Lanka - North to South tour with redspokes

Sri Lanka - North to South

Richard Cohen from London, UK rates our Sri Lanka - North to South cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This was an unusual trip as there were only 3 participants and we were travelling in Sri Lanka at a time of national crisis following the Easter Sunday bombings. In several of the places that we stayed in our group were the only guests and the staff in all the hotels we went to were grateful that we were visiting the country at a time when most tourists had left Sri Lanka and many countries (including the UK) had advised against all non-essential travel. As we were a small group we did not have a cultural guide with us and this meant that we missed out on some insights into the history of some of the places we were visiting. I felt this particularly strongly when we were in the Tamil-speaking area of northern Sri Lanka which is a part of the country recovering from many years of conflict. It would have been good to have heard more about this.

I cannot speak highly enough about the Cycle Guide Sampath and the driver Gayan. Both were endlessly helpful, patient and conscientious in their work with our group. They were always ready on time and kept the bikes in tip-top working order and they both went out of their way to respond to all kinds of requests from the group. They kept us constantly equipped with cold water even when the outside temperature reached 40 degrees and well supplied with bananas.

 Ann & David Nicoll Cycling on the Burma - Classic tour with redspokes

Burma - Classic

 Ann & David Nicoll from Prestwick, Scotland, UK rates our Burma - Classic cycling holiday at 4 out of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the whole of our Burma experience with redspokes. Burma is a beautiful country and we felt very lucky to see a mixture of larger cities, smaller villages and unspoilt countryside. The people are very warm, friendly and welcoming. Our tour guide, Min Min did a great job of trying to explain the diversity of the country, it's history and traditions. The food was fabulous. The cycling was hard at times, mostly due to the heat but also the odd hill or two!

Just did the Christmas - New Year Burma cycling trip and was pleasantly surprised by the little extras that redspokes provided. 12 years between trips with redspokes and their standard and value for money is still excellent.

Ross Prielipp & Annette Meier Cycling on the North Thailand tour with redspokes

North Thailand

Ross Prielipp & Annette Meier from High Halstow, England, United Kingdom rates our North Thailand cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This was our 4th tour with redspokes and having thoroughly enjoyed the previous 3, this trip did not disappoint. The cycling is stunning, well surfaced roads, very little traffic, beautiful scenery and plenty of challenging climbs followed, of course, by exhilarating descents. The small towns and villages through which you pass are fascinating. The rest day in Chiang Kham is a particular treat, we were absolutely spoilt by the resort owner Rico and would love to go back there sometime.
The real highlight of this trip however is the guide Preecha, he epitomizes the friendly open nature of the northern Thai people and is someone you will not forget. This was as much a gastronomic tour as it was a cycling tour. During the day we stopped at roadside cafes for delicious pad Thai or noodle soup and had snacks of sticky rice flavoured with coconut. In the evenings Preecha took us to restaurants, night markets and riverside stalls for amazing dishes of grilled fish, firery curries and even deep fried bamboo worms (absolutely yummy). Thanks to Preecha, Rico and the redspokes team for a memorable trip.

Adrian Sankey from Ambleside, England, UK rates our North Thailand cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This was an excellent trip through the most beautiful countryside of Thailand. The cycling was great. A carefully chosen route with lots of interest and variety. Some of it was challenging, but the rewards were spectacular.

Our splendid guide Preecha looked after us admirably and found us imaginative places to eat both at lunchtime and in the evening and we stayed in some very comfortable hotels. I would happily do it again tomorrow!

Weland Mahar Cycling on the Sri Lanka - North to South tour with redspokes

Weland Mahar, Weetangera, Australia
Sri Lanka - North to South

Weland Mahar from Weetangera, Australia rates our Sri Lanka - North to South cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

Long flat heat at the start, building up to steep climbs and never ending fast descents in the cooler hills towards the end. This ride was an interesting and varied journey through different cultures, terrain and conditions. The tour started strongly and just kept getting better as we went. The guides Sampath and Chamara were excellent and we couldn’t believe how good the food and accommodation was - it felt like a luxury foodie tour with lots of riding !! The best part was seeing the less explored parts of Sri Lanka especially in the North. The roads are superb - Highly recommended.

I have to be honest: I was as nervous as hell after I signed up for this trip. I'd seen a slide show in my hometown about a woman's trip through four countries with redspokes. As soon as I heard to talk I was hooked! However after I sent in my deposit, I thought, "What the heck am I doing?" This trip is rated extreme and it is! It's extreme altitudes, an extreme, arid climate and day after day of extreme elevation gains. With all that being said, it is also a trip of amazing scenery, incredible people and physical challenges that push you to your limit.

Raju and his support team were absolutely amazing -- they were so helpful and encouraging and they will not let you fail! They were there every time I needed a water bottle refill, a banana or just a friendly face and a little encouragement. I also so appreciated the camaraderie and encouragement that developed between myself and the four other members of the group. This was a trip of a lifetime and a dream come true. I loved my experience and am already planning for my next redspokes adventure!

Overall this was a wonderful trip, that will long be remembered as an outstanding experience.
The admin from redspokes was very good, with all queries dealt with efficiently. I also had a very helpful phone conversation with Demot, who was able to give me some specific information about the trip. This was helpful, as it enabled me to decide to take my own bike, which proved to be a good choice for me.

All of Raju’s support team did an outstanding job. The food was excellent, varied, tasty and nutritious. How do you make quality lasagne in a camp kitchen? The hire bikes were looked after every day, the tents were pitched for us before we arrived each day, with hot water soon following. Raju was also very sensitive to our needs and wishes, and totally willing to help with anything. Not only was the service outstanding, the friendliness and good humour of all the team contributed mightily to the overall experience.

The route was very well planned to provide gradual acclimatisation, which enabled all of us to cope ok with the altitude, and Raju had a good though unobtrusive eye on our safety. All in all, 6 stars for all the support team!
