John Pech and Rosemary Mapletoft Cycling on the  tour with redspokes

John Pech and Rosemary Mapletoft, Victoria, Australia

John Pech and Rosemary Mapletoft from Victoria, Australia rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

We highly recommend this trip. It is physically and psychologically challenging, but with good preparation the satisfaction with completing the ride is immense. All of this in a spectacular mountain setting. We think the 24 day format is excellent in allowing time for acclimatization and savouring the experience.

Excellent work from the whole support team meant all our needs and wants were met, leaving us free to concentrate on cycling and enjoyment. Thanks to redspokes for an unforgettable cycling experience!!

A trip which certainly deserved its 10 out of 10 rating, but worth all the effort and training. Some days were challenging but the rewards were awsome ...magnificent, breath taking scenery goes without saying, and it was different, so very different each and every day. Watching the Tibetans make mud bricks, collect the harvest, thresh the grain, plough the fields with their wonderful yaks, move everything from horses to food to children in their magnificent tiny tractors was a privilege. Their smiles lit up their faces and their waves of encouragement as we passed helped the legs keep going.The magnificence of the Himalayas will stay in my mind forever ...but the faces of the people and their deep affinity with their surrounding will lift my spirit and make me burst into a very very big smile

Although it's now four months since we returned from the Himalayas, it's never too late to say 'thank you'. As you know, I organise and lead a different group of work colleagues on an expedition to raise money for charity each year and we have been to some extreme places and done some great things - so think I'm pretty well qualified to comment on the skills of the different organisations we've worked with over the years. redspokes turned out to be the best we've worked with yet and the next time we go cycling it will be you we come to first. In particular I would like to single out Giles and Ox who made a great team and dealt with the uncertainties of life in Nepal and Tibet with all the flexibility and great humour you could hope for - not everything went to plan and not everything was perfect, it never is on trips to places like that, but every challenge was met and overcome without unnecessary fuss and minimum disruption. We had a brilliant time with redspokes and will recommend you to every cyclist we meet.

My first redspokes trip and hopefully there will be many more. Such a fantastic experience and superbly organised but still in a relaxed 'nothing is '˜too much trouble' manner . Both before and after booking all my queries and requests were taken care of by Dermot, Bryony or Ann who were swift in getting back to me. Cycling the 'roof of the world' is amazing and the feelings you get cannot be put into words. Each day the ride never ceases to amaze you with different surroundings and each day seemed to end at an even better place to stay with enough time to enjoy it and then the support team would produce amazing food for all. The group was a nice size with a good blend of people and the camaraderie which occurs on a trip like this was fantastic to experience. All in all we were looked after superbly and the itinerary is well put together so you get the chance to acclimatise and there is plenty of time each day for the rides. I stayed in Nepal before and after the trip and redspokes were very helpful with ideas and organisation for this.

It was a great experience and a marvelous trip through the best scenery ever! The support team was great; all nice guys! Teamleader Ox was very attentive and careful. Our Tibettan guide Migma was a great addition to the team because of his knowledge of culture and history and his drive to share it with us. The cook did his utmost to feed and please us. Hear, hear ! In a way we were lucky that the tour couldn't go as far as Kathmandu, because the Nepal/Chinese border was closed. Because of that, our tour consisted of 25 % unpaved road through a great and desolated countryside. A second advantage was that there were less heavy trucks on the road. We think it is important that your potential clients are aware of the fact that a regular tour is 98 % tarmac with sometimes heavy traffic.

As an experienced cycletourist used to self-planned and supported trips, and who had never been on an organised trip before, this was a new experience for me. I was very impressed by the organisation and staff- everything went very smoothly, the support for the riders was good, and the camps were great, with good food and plenty of it. The weather was fantastic for our May trip, which allowed us great views of the mountains, and especially Everest. We also had plenty of time for acclimatisation- very important not to rush this. I'd definitely recommend redspokes to anyone wanting to do this sort of trip without the hassles of researching, planning and carrying everything yourself- not even an option for Tibet these days anyway. As one of 3 riders on traditional touring bikes I can confirm that this was perfectly fine, with good strong handbuilt wheels and 35c or fatter tyres. Slightly slower than the mountainbikes on the rough sections, especially descending (and no doubt harder on the arms without suspension!), but faster on the majority of the roads which were excellent tarmac. "This was a really fantastic trip, not to be missed!"

My second trip with redspokes and my second time riding the Lhasa to Kathmandu route. Had a fantastic time, made some great friends and rode this truly spectacular route. Thanks to all the crew support I managed to do every high pass and all the big mile days. Great! I cannot recommend redspokes and this trip enough!

What a trip! Every day was an Epic. Somehow every day outshone the previous one as the legs got into the journey. Spectacular riding with excellent companions and staff .
I am telling my friends to do this before they die.

More an expedition than a holiday! Ian and all the crew worked very hard to cater for our needs enabling us to focus all our energy on coping with the demands of the cycling which were not insignificant! Nothing was ever too much trouble. Consequently, many of us came away with a real sense of achievement and memories which will burn brightly for a long time.
