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...
Douglas Pulleyblank, Vancouver, Canada
This was not an easy trip but it was a great trip. Before signing up, I had no idea what it would be like to go over multiple 5,000m passes. Now I know. I now know what it's like (answer = hard: effects of elevation, effects of long climbs (at elevation), wind, snow, sun, etc.), and I also know that I can do it. I did it!
The country is beautiful. Everything is so big. Sometimes vistas were similar to other places I've been, but always on a bigger scale. Whenever things got tough in terms of the biking, I would find myself at the back of the group, which meant that I would be with Ox (who was riding sweep). He saw everything that happened in the group, how people were riding, who was having problems. This was not my first trip with Ox -- I hope that it is not my last!!
Gerard Dunford, Hewelsfield, England, UK
Tibet was absolutely amazing! Our local guides made sure that we were comfortable and safe and the Nepalese support team couldn't have been better: hard working, caring, and an amazing chef (the word cook wouldn't do him justice!). Thank you for taking us on an epic journey!
Martin and Angela White, Carlisle, Cumbria
What a fantastic trip ! The weather, altitude and the stunning beauty of the highest mountains in the world all combine into one of the hardest and most rewarding experiences. The excellent care from the guides and crew helped to make this a trip of a lifetime and we would not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone wanting the ultimate cycling holiday.
Andy Wiggans, Littleborough, England, UK
I didn't really know what I was letting myself in for before I started, although Dermot (from redspokes) did a really good job in making sure that my head was ready to deal with the trip, even if my legs weren't. Each turn of the cranks got us one step nearer to completing the journey. I am really proud of myself for completing the trip, despite the fact that I had one bad day, when Dave was incredibly supportive in getting me to the finishing line.
You can't control the weather '“ though this was mercifully kind to us '“ but you can control the quality of leadership and back-up support provided and this far exceeded my expectations. It was absolutely superb and I would have no hesitation in recommending others to undertake this and similar trips with you.
Marie Clune, Raworth, Australia
I enjoyed this tour because of the challenge of the hills especially at altitude, the scenery and our group. The accommodation and food was good throughout the trip and Tony our guide did a great job at selecting the foods to suit different dietery needs. The picnic lunches in quiet little spots off the main roads were also a nice change from Chinese food and eating in restaurants. The support crew were always there to help out if anyone needed a ride or drink as well as prepare the lunches. Tony also had great knowledge of the different minority groups their foods, culture and history.
The bikes were brand new and had all the gears needed for the hills. On Day 2 it was amazing to have snow falling as we rode across all 3 passes.
Cameron Ainslie, Lane Cove, Australia
The highlight of the trip was the service provided by the local teams in both Tibet and Nepal; nothing was too much trouble and they made the trip extra special!
Sam Cheesman, Crawley, England, UK
Ox and his crew could really have not done any more for us, great food and plenty of it (We are like kings!) whilst camping in amazing locations. They comfortably sorted out any issues that arrised and took us to see the real Tibet and Nepal in all their beauty away from the commercialised centres.
Martin Barnes, Durham
We had a fabulous time. Sri Lanka is a beautiful country, with such wonderful people - not least our Guide and Drivers - and the tour enabled us to see so many aspects of its culture and heritage. It was a great experience, really well organised by redspokes so the cycling was manageable, and something we'll never forget.
Gill Hay, Durham
A fantastic trip, which as well as the cycling offered so much more in terms of exploring this lovely country and its friendly people. The cycling was excellent, mainly on minor roads and tracks and so well supported by the team - Sampath is a brilliant guide answering questions and introducing everyone to Sri Lanka's flora & fauna, culture, history and food & drink. Gayan and Prasad were great too, providing support with the minibus and jeep, topping up water and providing snacks and sorting out the bikes.
This was a great way to see the country and experience its culture and wildlife, the activities which are included as part of the package are wide ranging and include all of the 'must sees' in Sri Lanka. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the trip and have to say a big thank you to Sampath, Gayan and Prasad for all their help and support in making it such a great trip.
