Wow - truly awesome trip that i would recommend to anyone!!! Ox was incredible - flexible, organized, responsive - met our every need and tailored the trip to be exactly what we wanted. i hope it was clear from the blog that we were thrilled with the gruelling nature, stunning scenery and what we believe was quite the accomplishment. We couldn't have achieved it without the amazing team. Dorje was exceptionally knowledgeable about Tibet and Tibetan history. He provided incredible information, modified our tours so we could be present for prayers. Thanks!

Sten Thunberg Cycling on the North Thailand tour with redspokes

North Thailand

Sten Thunberg from Gothenburg, Sweden rates our North Thailand cycling holiday at 4 out of 5

This was our first trip, both with Redspokes and to Thailand, so we didn´t know what to expect when we arrived to Chiang Rai where we were met by our guide at the airport.
We were a small group of only three persons starting cycling from Mae Sai.  It was a pleasure to cycle as the roads turned out to be in excellent condition and with surprisingly little traffic. Also, the drivers were very considerate of us cyclists. The cycling route was beautiful and challenging, with  several mountain passes to cross. There were several days with long climbs of more than 2000 m, partly on steeper roads than we were used to, but the reward came when reaching the top, with spectacular views of the surrounding landscape, and of course in the long downhill stretches. 
The temperature during our tour in January was agreeable, with a maximum of 26-28 degrees at mid-day and cooler at night, especially when we stayed over-night in high located villages, where a sweater was needed in evenings and mornings. Throughout the tour we got to try a lot of different delicious Thai food, introduced by our guide.
We had chosen to rent the cycles instead of bringing our own. We were given very nice Giant hybrid bikes equipped with road tires which worked very well, although we felt that they lacked the gear ratio for cycling up the steepest parts ( 17% according to our Garmin watches) of the road to Phu Chi Fa, so we had to walk, but this was less than a kilometer.
 
All in all, we had a fantastic cycle tour and we will definitely consider travelling with Redspokes again on a challenging tour.

Kirsty Seddon from Chester, UK rates our India - Kerala cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This trip and redspokes were recommended to me by a friend and the whole experience far exceeded my expectations. The diversity of experiences that were packed into the two weeks astounded me. The team led by Raju were absolutely brilliant. Raju himself was so attentive to every detail of the trip and couldn't have done any more if he tried. He clearly had very high expectations of what he wanted to offer and he worked incredibly hard to maintain those expectations jthroughout. Baba and Keshu were so professional as bike guides and brilliantly skilled as mechanics, again nothing was too much trouble for them. Jamal was a brilliant driver and again so attentive to delivering a high quality experience. As a team, the four of them worked brilliantly together and really made the trip a fantastic experience - thank you to them all!

We had a great group and great trip. The guides were very attentive and thoughtful and could not do enough for us. The cycling was tough but very rewarding, and a great route on small roads with little traffic and spectacular scenery, a perfect way to see the country and experience local culture.

David Mercer Cycling on the Vietnam to Laos  tour with redspokes

Vietnam to Laos

David Mercer from Oldham, England, UK rates our Vietnam to Laos  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This was the first organised trip I have been on. All my previous trips have been self organised. However, overall, this was a superb trip and I really enjoyed it.
I think the success of a trip depends mainly on how good the guiding team are and how well you get on with the other trip members. On this trip the guiding teams were excellent and the other trip members were really friendly and we got on really well. 
This was a tough trip, with most days being 50+ and 60+ miles, with many long hills to climb and I think using a hybrid bike would have been much better. We would often set off riding at 7:30am and finish around 4:30pm/5:00pm, so they were long days.
The guide team of Fon and Ping were excellent as well. Fon was probably more keen on discussing safety on the road and keeping in touch with each rider along the way. He was a very personable and likeable young guy. 
So overall, for me, it was a tough trip, but brilliant, 11 riding days, 577 miles, 53hrs 14mins riding and 67163 ft of ascent. The countries were great. I’ve been to Laos and Luang Prabang twice before, 11 and 12 years ago, so it was great to be there again. Laos is quieter and more laid back than noisy, busy N.Vietnam. The scenery of both countries is generally mountainous and green and the people everywhere were friendly with many children running out to call to us.

Leslie Goodfriend from Santa Cruz, California, USA rates our Sri Lanka - Classic  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This is my second Red Spokes trip. I continued to be impressed with the in-country planning and coordination. Our crew and guides were thoughtful, kind and helpful. They were always happy to answer questions no matter how silly. I especially enjoyed the cultural parts of the trip- we cycled and then we would visit temples and learn about the history and culture of Sri Lanka. I like doing both. The food was excellent- I liked the roadside restaurants the best- although the hotel food was good- the off the beaten track restaurants had more interesting food options. Mr. Sampath's knowledge of the small canal roads that took us away from traffic and guided us through quiet villages and beautiful landscapes was wonderful. These roads are not an maps which clearly showed how much he knew about his country and his committment to give us an enjoyable experience.
Mr. Waruna is such a kind, patient, knowledgable guide. He did a great job handling our group, communicating with us and ensuring that our needs were met.
I highly recommend Sri Lanka to people interested in a cycling vacation- it was the perfect blend of cycling, learning about the history and culture of Sri Lanka and enjoying a beautiful country.

This is one of the best cycling trips I have ever been on. The amazing scenery, the welcoming people and the quality of accommodations exceeded my most optimistic expectations. But most of all, my appreciation goes to Redspokes and the local team who made it so successful. Raju, Keshu, Baba and Jamal were always there for us catering to our slightest needs and making sure this trip will remain a memorable experience. They certainly succeeded!

This trip in India is by far the best trip I ever did with redspokes, a real good selection of nice and comfortable hotels at interesting places. Raju is an excellent tour guide and the best tour guide I ever met on a cycling trip. His hospitality already started one day before the trip, when he was picking me up from the airport after my 11 hour flight. It was great to see the redspokes sign at the airport and even handling of my big bike box was pretty easy and well organized with his great support.

Our funny driver Jamal cares for every little detail at the stops and at every occasion. The cycling guides Baba and Keshu are professional cycling guides and Baba is a great mechanics to solve the little things and adjustments on all the bikes. Until today we had no accidents, no one got lost on the way, even when there were many turns on the tour on some days. I really appreciate this tour and would like to do another trip in India with this team. Therefore I would rate the trip with 5 stars out of 5 or 100%.
