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...
Ross Prielipp and Annette Meier, Gravesend, Kent, UK
We have come back to England with wonderful memories of Cambodia, its food, its landscape, its people, culture and history. All these things were brought alive by our fantastic guide Art and driver Det. On the hot and dusty roads the cycling was sometimes hard but the reward of being immersed in the real Cambodia more than compensated for this.The whole trip ran like clockwork but we never felt as if we were constrained within an over organised tour. The hire bikes were perfect for the job, the hotels of a good standard and the balance of cycling, sightseeing and resting just right. Thanks to redspokes and particularly thanks to Art and Det for their enthusiastic portrayal of Cambodia and an unforgettable experience.

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, Oldham, England, UK
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.

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%.
Leslie Goodfriend, Santa Cruz, California, USA
This is my second redspokes 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.
Weland Mahar, Australia
This tour is intelligently structured and well planned. Lowland heat and mountain cold, lots of climbing and some very long days. Every day was different, and the tour has so much more than just riding. Our group was from many countries and the banter was funny - a great bunch.
You'll need to be reasonably fit and confident on a mountain bike over rough terrain to get the most out of this ride, we trained a little bit by doing some long climbs at home and it really helped. Our guide Ox, was very experienced, flexible and funny - he did a lot of work behind the scenes, and it showed, as everything went smoothly. I'd recommend this tour to anyone. Great fun, you see so much and it left me wanting more.
Richard Matheson, Leeds, England, UK
As good as any of the 7 tours I've done, one of the best! Ox and his crew were superb, good humoured and worked tirelessly to make the trip enjoyable. A great group of people/ fellow cyclists who were a pleasure to ride with.
Food was local and tasty, the mountains as I'd always dreamed they'd be, dramatic and striking. The terrain is challenging but never dull. And finally the Nepali people are kind and welcoming. A highly recommended trip.
Kim Mygatt, Santa Cruz, California, USA
Geronimo and Diego were the best guides ever! (give them a big bonus, please!) The scenery was spectacular, and we had pristine weather to boot. The group was really enjoyable and fun. The steak dinner we had in Bariloche was one of the best ever! The roads were often empty, which was nice. I didn't know Chile and Argentina were so beautiful! I'd like to go back! Thank you for a great experience.
Julie Saunders, Otaki, New Zealand
I thoroughly enjoyed another wonderful redspokes adventure. Burma is a great country, the people were so welcoming & friendly accompanied by great scenery. We had a great team looking after us who shared their knowledge. As always it was enjoyable to experience some of places that are not visited by many tourists.
Paul Goulding, Merseyside, United Kingdom
This trip is adventure, and a trip of a life time. We were taken from the the lowlands and tropical warm air, to the highlands of majestic mountain peaks all from the seat of a bicycle, and the one man who made so many things happen was our leader Ox. More than a guide, simple a man who never stopped from making sure we had a great time putting the customer first time and time again truly a diamond of a asset to Dermot and redspokes.
