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...
Nigel & Ceri Johnson, Christchurch, New Zealand
Coming from the South Island of New Zealand, we wondered if the Andean Lakes would offer anything different, but the scenery was amazing, on a grander scale - so many volcanoes! Our guides were very well organised, and also friendly and with a great sense of humour, and everything ran smoothly due to their efforts. There was a good mix of sealed and gravel roads, although not everyone liked the gravel - road-bikers might need to practice on rough gravel before taking this trip.
Staying overnight on the slopes of Osorno Volcano, crossing the Andes through pristine forest on the Perez Rosales Path, and cycling through the old lava streams in the Conguillo National Park were particular highlights.
We also had a great group of 15 people who all added greatly to our enjoyment.
Nina Markham, La Molina, Peru
The views were stunning. The biking had a variety of pavement, dirt, gravel, hills which made it very enjoyable since it was always changing. The support was amazing. I went with my husband and 17-year old son. The guides and group were incredibly accommodating of our varying levels of biking.
What a fantastic way to spend a vacation!
Christian Carthew, Melbourne, Australia
I have been very keen to see India for some time and my expectations were exceeded. The trip was brilliant. Our guide Majid was excellent. He did a great job getting us safely from place to place, also passed on loads of great information along the way. I am missing the food, the colours and the smiles. Cycling is certainly the best way to see a new place.
Thank you Majid, Majesh and redspokes.
Karen Allworthy, London, UK
Brilliant trip experiencing the countryside and the lovely people of Cambodia. We were looked after so well by the redspokes team who really went the extra mile to make our bike trip so successful. Phea was a great guide backed up by Mr. Nal and Ramone. Accommodation and food was excellent, the problem was we didn't want the trip to end.
Ursula, Oxford, England, UK
A great trip. Well organised, fantastic guides, good accommodation. Stunning scenery, and we had the added luck of having good weather and a great group that really stuck together. What particularly struck me is how this worked well as a group trip, but that it was still possible for everyone to go at their own speed, and that all abilities were catered for.
A HUUUGE thumbs up for the guides (Diego, Tolkeyen, Bosco). Great fun to be with, and they really were organising whizz-kids - predicting where there were potential difficulties and working their way around these (e.g. organising transfers if poor road conditions were expected), so that we did not even notice - everything just worked.
Thank you also for the very good pre-trip communication and prompt responses whenever I got in touch. That was also very helpful.
This was my first redspokes tour. It won't be my last...
Paul Fisher, Walsall, UK
I have been on several overseas cycling trips before and this one exceeded my expectations. Our guide, Tolke, driver Diego and mechanic Bosco were excellent. The planning of each day, attention to detail by Tolke and Diego and transfers were expertly handled with no hitches. The hotels and lodges were very well selected - a super combination of very good lodges and hostels with a little luxury occasionally (well we deserved it). And as for the route - just brilliant! Cycling in the Patagonian Lakes was a bit of a dream come true for me - lakes, volcanoes, waterfalls, forests and fields under massive blue skies with high whispy clouds. Cycling was varied too, sometimes tough, but always enjoyable on gravel, forest tracks or tarmac.
Just a great trip!
Ruth & Phil Dunnell, Surrey, UK
Another great trip with redspokes. Stunning scenery, fun group and great crew. Some of the gravel roads were a challenge but not insurmountable - the ferry crossings provided a welcome respite & a chance to take in the majestic landscape. Special thanks to Tolkeyen & Alejandro for looking after us so well.
We've already booked our next redspokes adventure!
Harri Wilson, Glasgow, Scotland
The Nepal tour far outstripped my expectations on every level. The food was all excellent, and none of us ever got sick (our guide, Ox, was extremely careful and conscientious - even cooking some of our food himself when we stopped at roadside kitchens - and we had very very good food from places you would never have picked yourself, thanks to his local knowledge). The accommodation was much better than I expected - we had electricity every night, and everywhere was clean even when it was very basic. I am a competitive road rider with little mountain biking experience, and although the distances were low the routes were technical enough to be very challenging in many places, but with enough variety that it was still enjoyable. I would say you need at least one of fitness and skill for this trip, but not necessarily both - our group was of mixed backgrounds but we all managed fine. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking too!
The real highlight for me was the Nepali people - everyone was incredibly welcoming and friendly, and even as a female travelling alone I never felt unsafe exploring big cities such as Pokhara and Kathmandu. It was a lovely feeling to connect with and be welcomed by so many people as we cycled through the villages. Where we cycled on bigger roads (not very often), the traffic was fine and generally well behaved. There were plenty of times we all ended up on foot due to the challenging terrain, so if you are in road cleats (as I was) I'd definitely recommend carrying and using a set of cleat covers. High SPF suncream is a must, particularly for the high altitude days. A buff or pollution mask helps with the dusty roads and for walking around in the cities. A swimsuit for the hot springs came in handy too! We were very well fed, and I didn't use much of the cycling food I brought with me, but I did use electrolyte tablets - it was very hot on some days. If I did this trip again, I would only bring a small micro fleece towel as backup (rather than a full size one - they were always available), and I would bring more transitional clothes - short sleeved jerseys with arm warmers, shorts with leg warmers etc were used a lot more than the softshell jackets etc that I took. A decent waterproof cycling jacket was very useful too. I bought cheap baggy shorts in Kathmandu and wore them over lycra instead of expensive mountain biking shorts - there is plenty of knock-off gear for sale. Overall, this trip was a fantastic experience that was only possible with the level of knowledge and experience provided by the guides, and I'd absolutely recommend it to people with a solid cycling or mountain biking background
Ann & David Nicoll, Prestwick, Scotland
We thoroughly enjoyed the whole of our Burma experience with redspokes. Burma is a beautiful country and we felt very lucky to see a mixture of larger cities, smaller villages and unspoilt countryside. The people are very warm, friendly and welcoming. Our tour guide, Min Min did a great job of trying to explain the diversity of the country, it's history and traditions. The food was fabulous.
The cycling was hard at times, mostly due to the heat but also the odd hill or two!
Ruth and Phil Dunnell, Surrey, UK
Adrian, Julian, Javier and Jaime were all great - nothing was too much trouble & on many occasions they went that extra mile. Yes Colombia is hilly but none of the climbs were extreme and the crew were always on hand with well timed stops and refreshments. We saw amazing mountain scenery and stayed in small towns of great character and authenticity. There was some traffic in a couple of places, but we often had the roads largely to ourselves. All round, we had a fantastic trip.
