Susan Lincoln Cycling on the Colombia - Medellin to Bogota tour with redspokes

Colombia - Medellin to Bogota

Susan Lincoln from Idaho, USA rates our Colombia - Medellin to Bogota cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

Colombia was a fantastic trip, cycling through beautiful terrain, friendly people and with a staff that made every effort to support us on our journey. Be prepared for lots of climbing, lots of swooping downhills, greens of all shades, views, rivers, non touristy towns, and a warm welcome from all that we met. There is so much here, and the seat of a bicycle (the rentals were excellent, well tuned and a good match for the varied terrain you will traverse) is the perfect vantage point to sample it. Geovanny, Alex, Adrian and John were a great team, so much fun both on the road and off.

Olivia Slee from Perth, Australia rates our Laos - South to North cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This trip was undoubtedly the best trip I have ever been on. I still find myself comparing other travels and nothing matches the amazing experience of the Laos trip. You step into a new world and interact with your surrounds to a far greater level when touring on your bike. Some of the experiences still seem very surreal. I cherrish a letter written to me by one of the schoolgirl wishing me "lucky when back to your home". I have met some amazing people and will have to organise another trip with some of the group (the two Andy's!!) in pursuit of winning a hill stage!

I loved the opportunity to interact with locals in a meaningful way. I can't fault the organisation, it all went so smoothly, and I know there's always so much work behind the scenes. I had such a wonderful holiday, every day was like a new adventure.I really enjoyed the way Dermot was involved and how he (and the whole group) was into all the spontaneity, for example here's some crazed guy in a car yelling that he's a cyclist, and we all end up having a great time visiting his bike museum and pub.redspokes would always be first preference for me, I fully recommend them.

A fabulous tour in a fascinating country full of wonderfully welcoming people, amazing sights and challenging cycling. Kalayar and her team couldn't be more helpful, the accommodation was uniformly excellent even in the less traditionally tourist locations and the attractions of Myanmar combine to make this a great 2 weeks.

Another really enjoyable redspokes trip. It was great to get to such out-of-the-way places, well off the tourist routes and get a unique experience of China. The contrast between the cities, "tourist towns" and the rural areas was very marked and a highlight of the trip.

I really didn't know what to expect on a cycle trip in China, as I've never been on anything like this before. Well, it's safe to say, I'm hooked. Every day was a new adventure, you never have 2 days the same. We rode on everything from brand new paved roads to red clay trails, and everything in between. I loved the fact that we knew there were alternate routes on better ( busier ) roads or highways, but we always seemed to be taking the longer, more scenic, and quieter path. Our guide Robert, was always there to answer any questions , but never once did he rush anyone like there was a time limit, we just got there when we got there. Our support driver , Mr Bai, was never too far away with water, treats, and of course the coffee stops. Riding thru dozens and dozens of villages, I learned real quick that you should have your camera ready at all times, as southern China really is a photographers dream. If you want to experience the real hidden China , I highly recommend the redspokes trip.

What an adventure. Be under no illusions, it's tough but the rewards of this amazing country far outweigh any difficulties. There can be few more impressive roads in the world than the one from Luang Prabang to Kasi and we had a real sense of achievement looking back at the distance we'd travelled. The absence of bus transfers with only leisurely boat rides instead was a massive bonus.
We were so sad to have to say goodbye to Ken and his team after all their tireless work and endless enthusiasm. They gave us such an insight into the Laos psyche which, trust me, is something you want to have and keep!

Where do I start...
The only word I can use to describe this trip is 'epic'.
I've been on three cycling trips before with another tour operator which, at the time, I thought were hard. I now realise that they were like a gentle Sunday afternoon pootle through the countryside compared to this one!
This trip is intense - but you will get out of it what you are prepared to put in and the rewards and sense of achievement that you will feel at the end of it are fantastic. You will be exhausted (physically and mentally) though, so be prepared for that!
You are travelling for a lot of the time in places that are totally off the beaten track (in a country that is quite 'off the beaten track' to start with). Expect conditions to accord with that fact - there is little tourist infrastructure so many hotels/guesthouses are far more basic than you might expect elsewhere in the world.
Many roads are in a terrible state of repair, but that makes for epic days in the saddle!
The support team is amazing - the most helpful, cheerful, kind, entertaining team that I have had on any trip. Always there with a Beng Beng and a cuppa at each rest stop. Ken is always there with an entertaining (or, at times, terrifying) story, too.
Many, many memories from this trip will live with me for a long time. The children literally jumping up and down with excitement, shouting 'Sa bai dee' at us crazy cyclists actually brought me to tears at times. The Buddhist ceremony at the homestay (with mobile phone interruption) was incredibly special (and slightly hilarious). The shower in a shed will live with me for longer than I would perhaps like.. The view from the hotel on the reservoir was probably one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. Peanut butter and banana sandwiches as a pre-cycling breakfast will be firmly established in my training regime for life.
This is not an easy holiday. If you want an easy holiday, pack yourself off to a tourist resort for two weeks.
If, on the other hand, you want to see a beautiful country, meet wonderful people and challenge yourself in any number of ways, book this trip. You won't regret it.
