Marius Krikstopaitis, Vilnius, Lithuania.
Amazing tour with beautiful views, tasty food and great guides, very much recommended.
Shirley and Trevor Acreman, Stratford-upon-avon
Fabulous routes and scenery with quiet, many singletrack, roads. The weather was Scottish, with sun most days and rain most days - but nearly always with a wind behind! Mull and Jura were highlights for cycling and the ferries were fun. With the unpredictability of the ferries and the weather I'd recommend this supported trip as the best way to get a flavour of the Highlands and Islands.
Marjorie Leighton, Campbeltown, Scotland
This was my first cycling holiday. There were parts that were harder than I had anticipated. However I made it and thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would do it again. It was a great way to see the country and the way of life and interact with the locals. The organisation, accommodation, food, guides and bikes were of a high standard. I am glad to have done the trip with the beach extension as this gave another insight into life in the country and the ability to keep cycling or not. I would recommend it to anyone.
Karen Allworthy & Geoff Messenger, London, UK
Our Thailand trip was excellent, we were a very small group so was very pleased that redspokes ran the trip.
Amazing food and scenery, both Tom & Pangupong were very good at looking after us.
Cheryl Hyslop, Ottawa, Canada
The redspokes Classic tour is a great way to experience some of the historic sites of Sri Lanka as well as having a chance to see some of the more rural life. If you are planning a visit to Sri Lanka this is the way to do it. Lots of wildlife: elephants, egrets, kingfishers, and monkeys guaranteed! A zoom lens is recommended for the keener photographers. Maybe not to carry on the bike but you will have lots of opportunities to put it to good use!
The riding took us through a variety of terrain and scenery. Usually "undulating", "sometimes steeply", and often "mostly up". The tea plantations are really lovely. The support team was excellent. Our guide, Kasun, was always informative and was constantly finding interesting wildlife for us to observe. He also made a point of regularly checking in with us to make sure that the accommodations and tour in general were not lacking in any way. Sangeen, our driver and chief water-carrier, was always ready with a smile. Thanks to redspokes for organizing yet another wonderful tour.
Stephen Barnes, Bristol, United Kingdom
A truly memorable trip. Such a beguiling country, from its people, philosophy, history and landscape. Every day had something new to offer, and you feel you are seeing the real Sri Lanka.
Katja Stille, London, UK
I have had yet another great experience on this red spokes trip!!! This tour through Nepal gives a very good insight into the varied landscape this beautiful country has to offer, from rainforest to majestic mountain terrain of the Himalayas - we saw it all. Ox made this trip even more special through many little treats, such as random stops to learn about local craft, impromptu meditation lessons in a temple and opportunities to taste the local food cooked by Ox himself. Ox’s flexibility ensured that we saw a lot. Our group was amazing and very supportive of each other as we tackled some challenging terrain. Thank you Redspokes and everyone in the group !
Dr Heather Ross, Toronto, Canada
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!
Deborah Hammond, Washington, United States.
This trip had absolutely no glitches, amazing for two weeks in a poor country, I am incredibly impressed by your logistical genius.
Excellent local guides especially in Bagan.
Barbara Shane, Washington, United States
This was my first organized cycling tour and I was not sure what to expect - either of redspokes or myself! I was so pleased to find this tour extremely well organized.
Mr. Sampath did an excellent job of evaluating our group's cycling abilities and speeds and adjusting our pace accordingly. He is an excellent bike tour leader, who effortlessly led us through side streets, canal-side paths and through busy towns! The tour would have not been such a success without Mr. Waruna! His patience in answering client questions was endless, and his passion for and knowledge of the history, culture and wildlife of Sri Lanka were infectious. I learned so much more about the country than I ever expected I would on a cycling tour. The rest of the crew were always helpful, professional, and friendly. Kasoon is an excellent driver in often very difficult, tight conditions! Nuwan always had the truck where it was needed, and Kumar was ready to help in an instant. We loved being pampered with fresh fruit, local sweets and water at every stop! What a great team!
My mountain bike was excellent! I was not sure what to expect, but brought my own cage pedals, which the team installed for me. I also brought a gel seat cover, which I think helped save my butt! Loved the disc brakes on my bike! They gave me confidence on the downhills!
