We are dedicated to delivering fantastic cycling holidays through the most spectacular regions of the world, offering fascinating sceneries and immense cultural interest.
But don't just take our word for it, here is what our customers have had to say about redspokes and our services...
Richard Kitson, West Yorkshire, England, UK
What a fantastic way to spend Christmas Day, cycling through unbelievable tea plantation scenery. The hill side camp site was a stunning venue and well worth the gruelling climb up the drive to get there! The tour was brilliant and considering the difficulties caused by the Kerala/Tamil Nadu dispute, the support team and Ben managed it admirably.
David and Jane Mercer, Rhoon, Netherlands
Our second redspokes tour and again the local team exceeded our expectations, from meeting us at the airport, servicing the bikes everyday, taking time to show and explain the local sights and customs and finally meeting us off the bus when we extended our visit for a few days in Vietnam. Overall we were like a group of friends traveling together rather than just tour guides and tourists.
Zoe Balmforth, UK
Cambodia is a fabulous trip. Easy cycling and plenty of time to take in the exotic sights and sounds of a wonderful country that hasn't yet been overrun with tourists. Most of all it's the Cambodian people who made the tour for me. They are without doubt the most welcoming, happy and gracious people I've come across. Our group of 8 on this tour were all returning customers - all had been on at least one tour with redspokes before. This says everything about redspokes that anyone would need to know. People come back again and again because they provide the best value for money, the best service and the most carefully thought out trips of any operator out there.
Alan Swann, Northumberland, UK
It was a great trip and we were well looked after - so thanks again. Felipe is a real star
Peter Daniel, Cheshire
The cycling was tough but very rewarding. The scenery when in Ladakh was astonishing and although the ascents were long and hard, the descents were exhilarating. Felipe did a very good job despite it being his first tour.
Giselle Devlin, UK
The trip was fantastic, as was the camping and all the staff involved in this. Our redspokes guide Felipe was a lovely person, great company and worked really, really hard. The group of people on the trip were all really lovely. Overall we were proud to complete a very tough trip!!
Wendy Morriseau, Vancouver Canada
I had a wonderful adventure and would do another tour with redspokes and recommend your company.
Debbie and Andrew Buxton, Chesterfield, England, UK
The scenery was spectacular and the people were a delight. The trip was very well organised. Ian, Raj and the other leaders were fantastic and it seemed as though we had been in India for months rather than months rather than weeks because of how much we saw and did. Our fellow holiday makers were just great people. This was our 3rd redspokes trip which we have thoroughly enjoyed again and we intend to do more. Bring it on Dermot!
Christine Daniel, Cheshire, England
Within the first few days of the trip I realised that the altitude and cycling was going to prove too much for me. However, I was able to travel in the support vehicle & learnt a lot about the landscape & culture from Gini, the local guide. I walked along sections & stopped at chai stalls to take photos and sip cinnamon tea. Obviously, I would have liked to cycle but I don't feel I missed out on anything else.
Marie Sadler, Luton, England, UK
This was my second redspokes tour and once again it was a wonderful experience. We had a fantastic group of people who contributed to the great time we all had. The tour was well organised with great guide/drivers/helpers. I was thrilled to have experienced the real India and get the opportunity to visit rural villages and interact with the people. I think the trip exceeded my expectations and I have come away with a great insight to Indian life and the chance to see areas that most people never get to see. Well done redspokes and I look forward to the next trip.
Peter Marsden, Blackpool, England, UK
My first experience of India was outstanding; an astonishing mixture of urban and rural scenery, with gentle warm and friendly people.The cycling was varied (and hilly) and the heat added to the challenge. My fellow cyclists proved helpful and humorous adding to the enjoyment - many thanks to all of them.
Christine Dawson, New Zealand
The cycling was fab, I was cycling with a running injury and whilst I do a bit of cycling do not consider myself a cyclist. I found the terrain in places challenging but nothing I could not handle. I think a 5 was pitched about right. I would certainly recommend your tour and indeed do it again. Thank you so much for an excellent, treasured memories filled holiday.
Rita Gough, Preston, England, UK
I have been on a few redspokes tours, all amazing but I think Kerala was my favourite. Absolutely wonderful place and people - so much to see - I can't wait to go back there.
Clark Schofield, Kent, England, UK
Unforgettable journey though places I would never get the chance to see otherwise. Truly spectacular landscapes and great companionship made this a very special trip.
Donald Gow, Edinburgh, Scotland
Dermot your tour was excellent we really apriciate the fact that we saw life off the beaten track and experiance a taste of the culture.
Russell Snowden, Lennoxtown, Scotland
Completing this trip ranks as one of the most incredible challenges I have ever done and the sense of achievement is amazing. The tour leader and all of the local staff contributed greatly to making this happen, this along with every member of the tour.
Jon Sturman, Cumbria, England, UK
A very well organised trip, I would recommend redspokes above other companies who run this route. The reason being the quality of leadership, back-up, the food and an itinerary which allows for better acclimatization. Oh, and we had a superb group!
Moey Chen Lim, London, England, uk
Fantastic trip.....Fabulous and breathtaking views! Painful at times and yet sweetness absorbing the views. Walker a great guide and really attentive Nepali and Tibetian crew and the group makes this trip memorable!!!
Margaret Sills, Weston-super-Mare, UK
I would have no hesitation in recommending Redspokes cycling adventure tours having had an excellent experience riding from Lhasa (Tibet) to Kathmandu (Nepal) along the Friendship Highway, with a detour to Everest Base camp. The flexibility and determination to ensure that we achieved our goals were unparalleled and several circumstances overcome that lesser organisations may have given in to. The itinerary and choice of campsites/hotels gave us every opportunity to acclimatise as well as experience different environments and maximise our chances of completing this 10/10 extreme tour. An adventure experience that I doubt I shall surpass. I would particularly like to commend Gambu Sherpa, our cycle guide who not only rode with us but also managed the whole trip superbly - always a sparkle in his eye, great cycle mechanic and so patient. Brilliant.
Don Buchanon, Shelley, West Australia
Every effort was made to make sure our trip ran smoothly and it did. I would recommend the team that looked after us to anybody else contemplating doing a similar trip.RegardsDon
Declan Williams, Kidderminster, UK
It was great trip, and I had never done anything like this before and if times ever got bad there was always someone to help.
Jesse Dudley, Pennsylvania, USA
An excellent trip with fellow travelers who became friends along the way. The mountain biking in Nepal is still inspiring me back at home. Good wishes to Ox, Milan, Sunil, and our driver who took good care of us along the waY.
Richard Garlick, Bushey,England, UK
On this tour you see a lot of different scenery such as volcanoes, lakes, the pacific coastline and a huge variety of trees and plants. The treats in the cycling are timed well, the accommodation at the end of the day is sometimes charming, sometimes in a stunning location, but always comfortable. Do climb Villarica as it is an unforgettable adventure. The food and wine are so good you could find yourself putting on weight which is unusual for a cycling holiday.
John Lingford, London, England, UK
Not quite the end of the world, but a long way south, redspokes Chile/ Argentina tour takes you through quite European looking farmland, round perfectly cone-shaped, snow covered volcanoes (extinct, mostly), and through groves of monkey puzzle trees as you cycle back into Chile from Argentina. Plenty of time to take it all in, even to climb a volcano if you wish! As varied as one comes to expect from a redspokes tour, something for everyone.
Claire Waddington, Oxford, England, UK
This was the perfect break from a busy job. Great way to see the country. David was a legend of a tour guide, he worked tirelessly to try and make the holiday the best possible experience he could.
Eric and Ros Fraser, Hobart, Australia
We've never been on an organised tour before but this was a wonderful first experience. David was marvellous and the group was friendly, diverse and interesting.
Jonathan Woodhouse, Ashbourne, England, UK
I've never been on an organised tour before, as I normally prefer to be able to go at my own pace and change routes if I feel like it. For Tibet this isn't a practical option. The redspokes tour offered the chance to see Tibet and clock up some miles in an otherwise inaccessible, and culturally fascinating, area. Liked the attitude of the organisation, in putting cycling first, and would definitely recommend you to anyone wanting to do this route. Excellent support staff and still barely able to credit that the food was so good/plentiful that I came back the same weight I started out.
Nigel Gerke, Swansea, Wales.
A challenging tour with excellent staff and a great group of fellow cyclists, through a dramatic and thought provoking country
Mark Hoskins , Wolverhampton, England, UK
A great trip David and Ken were great guides and provided plenty of information about Laos. An awesome way to see this magnificent country; far better than from the back of an air-conditioned bus. I met a great group of fellow travellers. This holiday will be remembered for a long time.
Dave and Eve Jones, Malmesbury, England, UK
We had a hoot, and enjoyed ourselves immensely, as well as making a number of good new friends. It was hard going, but enjoyable none-the-less, and despite eating like horses, we came back 0.5 stone lighter !!! I think the biggest testimony is that we are all planning another trip for 2012 '“ same group, same tour leader. We had a fantastic time. Thank you!
Michelle Morris, Baildon, England, UK
The redspokes Tibet tour was AMAZING. It was a very well organised trip which allowed plenty of time before the start for acclimatization to the altitude. The scenery was just something else. There was not a cloud in the sky at Everest. It was so hard on many levels, but worth every second it. I can't put into words just how awesome the experience was, but it is one which will stay with me forever.
Geoff Bennett, , Mudgee, NSW, Australia
My second trip with redspokes. Organisation and itinerary were fantastic on both, I'm looking forward to the next.
Joe Doyle, , Mudgee, NSW, Australia
I had a wonderful time and would recommend redspokes to anybody, I enjoyed everything on the tour. Thank you again!
Ivy and Neville Higgs, Mudgee NSW, Australia
redspokes was great in every way. Bryony was always so helpful & friendly & answered all emails promptly..Everyone went out of their way to see that we had a terrific holiday & succeeded admirably. Thanks so much for a fantastic experience
Robert Coggins, Strathfield NSW, Australia
I very much enjoyed the redspokes Vietnam / Laos cycling holiday. The tour leader, David Walker,did an excellent job in maintaining happiness and harmony within the group and ensuring that no one was left behind.He also liased very well with Phong and Dalit and their crews who were all most helpful at all times. I would recommend a redspokes adventure to any cyclist - especially with a leader of the calibre of David whose enthusiasm and readiness to help in any way was infectious.
Pat Green, Dudley, England, UK
This is the second redspokes trip we have been on and again we were really pleased with everything. David our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful and both the two food and transport teams were very good. The river trips were interesting and slotted in well with the cycling. Some overnight stays were more comfortable than others but the authenticity is what we enjoy. We would not enjoy going to touristy hotels every night.
The group of cyclists bonded really well and we had a lot of laughs. We were sorry when the tour finished.
Helen Young , Chiswick, London, UK
A great trip '“ well-planned, good tour leaders/team spirit and a fantastic, challenging way to see a beautiful & unspoilt country.
Sean Schofield, , London, England, UK
Thanks to everyone at redspokes. I had an amazing time and definitely would go on another redspokes trip.
Debbie Glenwright , Townsville Australia
Cycling in Laos was excellent as the trip combined the challenge of ridingthrough some beautiful hilly countryside, while at the same time taking inmany different cultural experiences. The homestay with the local villagerswas the highlight of the trip.
Nicola Hardie , Singapore
The amazing opportunity this trip provides to really truly understand Laos as a country, understand at first hand some of the issues it faces on its road to development and really meet the people.
Their lives are lived on the roads in front of their wooden huts, so on a bike you have every opportunity to understand it, interact and even participate in their life via a homestay. Outside the capital, they live in the middle ages '“ limited electricity, no running water, wood huts cooking on fire, the cooking area is the same as the living room and the bedroom. This trip gave us a unique opportunity to live with them (with a homestay) and realise that although they may not have much materially, they gain everything in the richness of their family and community support. Something we have long lost in more developed countries......making me wonder if development, although inevitable, will really bring these people more happiness.
Debbie Glenwright, Townsville, Australia
Cycling on the Kerala tour was majestic, incorporating some of the most picturesque mountain views and waterways that at times were breath taking. The waterfalls, tea plantations, temples, fishing villages and very manageable climbs made the trip more of a cultural experience than a challenging ride. The overwhelming friendliness of the people and the unique cultural traditions and rituals were amazing. Eating curry now has a whole new meaning!!!
The local Laos team were outstanding and great to be with - Khen, Daolit, May and Khen the driver. They're committed to what they do and obviously enjoy it - Khen had some of his family helping at various points.
Ken and Daolit have excellent English and interpersonal skills and good local knowledge; they give useful cultural dimensions which is useful.I loved Laos - a special trip - one of my best adventures so far: it combined activity, beautiful scenery, great people, delicious food and cultural insights.
