Phil Hurcom Cycling on the Burma - Mountains, Beaches & Stupas tour with redspokes

Burma - Mountains, Beaches & Stupas

Phil Hurcom from London, England, UK rates our Burma - Mountains, Beaches & Stupas cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

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.

China - South East

John Beckley from London, UK rates our China - South East  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

I fell in love with China on this trip. The scenery was stunning; lush and green with rice terraces spreading as far as you could see. Everywhere people were friendly; we were invited to eat with people and spent a wonderful evening watching a DVD of Beijing opera in a Dong village drum tower with all the old people of the village. The cycling was great; particularly along the river from Diman, through villages it felt few non-Chinese people had visited and up the road we were told no-one had ridden on a bike before.

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.
