Stuart Williams, Worcestershire, UK
ANOTHER trip of a lifetime with redspokes! A great group of people and travelling a route I have wanted to ride for years. I found the whole experience unique and rewarding.

"Groups can be hit or miss but I think we all hit it off on our 2 day bus journey between Islamabad and Gilgit. In fact this was a great start to the adventure and made me feel that we were truly travelling the Karakorum Highway. Flying this part of it would have felt like cheating. The scenery throughout was incredible and although I have seen many photos of the region the landscape exceeded all my expectations. I particularly remember stopping for some time just south of Passu to take photos of the group with the Passu Cathedrals as a back drop. The view was stunning. After a while we remounted our bikes and set off again, only to be forced to stop again within 100m as we swung round the next bend in the road and the immense Passu Glacier came into view. We were all gobsmacked and whooped with joy and amazement. Another memorable feature of the trip was the wonderful hospitality of the people in Pakistan. Twice we were feted in villages that we visited and even the most hardened of us were moved by the speeches and gestures of welcome. In both Pakistan and Kyrgyzstan our guides were very special people; filled with warmth, energy and a desire to make our trip a success. "

For many years i had wanted to cycle across the Karakorum Highway and this trip exceeded all my expectations! I thought reaching the Khunjarab Pass (which was amazing) would be the highlight of my trip, but my everlasting memories will be of the warmth and friendliness of the people in Chira and the camaraderie and support of the others on the tour especially when cycling/facilities were challenging!
Keith & Pat Green , Dudley, West Midlands, England
This is the third redspokes trip we have been on and we were not disappointed. Our redspokes guide Felipe and local guide shusheel and his helpers looked after us really well. The locals were friendly and the scenery was awesome. The camp beds were comfortable and the breakfast and evening meals were delicious.

I just wanted to say what a fantastic time I had on the recent Thailand - Laos trip!
From the beginning and booking with Elisabeth and Bryony through to the actual tour itself has been brilliant.
The team in Laos are fantastic! Ken, Mae (and Manniwan), Lid and Ton really made the trip. It was so special travelling with the local team and I wouldn't change a thing about the organization of it. I trusted Ken and Lid 100% when it came to making decisions on roads and when to ride/not to ride. They are true professionals. Lid was also fantastic when it came to the bike maitenance and I know as I had a few dramas! Nothing major, just all the mud etc taking its toll, but every time something did happen I knew Lid was there to fix. Ken and his fabulous sense of humour always kept us laughing! Mae, what a fabulous cook she was and such a delight to have around. Manniwan (their daughter) was also a delight and I thoroughly enjoyed having the chance to spend time with her as well. Ton was so patient and always happy! He did a great job driving the bus and was always there waving "sabaidee" as we got to the bus.
I loved every minute and every kilometre of the journey. Overall, the organization was perfect. The length we rode each day and the towns we stopped in (including the rest day in Luang Prabang) was spot on. Having the local team and their knowledge made the trip!
Thank you to yourself and all of the team involved at redspokes for making this the best trip of my life. I will certainly be doing more redspokes tours in the past and I have (and will continue to) spread the word over here in Melbourne!
Brian and Paul Thompson, Middlesbrough, England
Considering that we went in the wet season, were able to see everything we expected and hoped to see. We both felt that it was actually a good time to visit Laos. Everything is really green and lush and it was really good to see people working in the rice fields and to get a good feel for what their lives are really like, much better than just looking at empty scenery.
The home stay was a real highlight and we were both really moved by the sincerity of the villages towards us.
Ken and all of the rest of the support team were absolutely excellent, it definitely wouldn't have been the same without his good humour, he made all the right decisions about when to ride and when not to, his experience on the route is invaluable. We both thought that his obvious love of his wonderful country and its people shone through.
I'd also like to mention Alan too who looked after us in Thailand. He was an excellent bloke, I was staggered by his achievements and modesty. I really hope that all goes well for him with the Northern Thailand tours. I'm sure that all who meet him will be impressed, how couldn't you with a Guinness world record under his belt!
For my son and I this was a wonderful and at times quite magical trip and just so glad that we were able to make it. We are now considering where to go next, we both want more.
Thanks again to you all and we both look forward to many more happy cycling miles.
Kevin Bailey, Worcestershire, England
What a great trip! Thanks for running with such low numbers after the cancellation of the Tibet trip. Ramesh , our guide, was brilliant and I would definitely go with him again. He cycled every metre with us and was a fantastic companion ensuring we were comfortable at all times. We had the most fabulous food and always felt that our every comfort was being catered for, right down to early morning tea in bed and a nice steaming bowl of hot water to wash in! Even a hot water bottle on those cold high mountains, it goes without saying that this is one of the most beautiful and dramatic routes in the world and every day was jaw dropping. Brilliant! Particularly good transfers which made life so much less stressed.
Ken Moyer, Pennsylvania, USA
The trip was well planned from the start. We enjoyed a brief taste of Delhi, riding a tuk-tuk around town, and then had a chance to acclimatize riding a train and then driving to Manali. The mountains, monasteries and Indian cuisine offered an exotic experience. With the high altitude, the day long bike rides invigorated us as we enjoyed a close-up experience with the local village people. Camping was very comfortable, from our cots and dining tent to the home-made food. Ramesh, our guide, and Aneil, our cook, plus our driver, made us feel very welcome. They were professional and personable.I would highly recommend this trip for the fit cyclist who wants to experience northern Indian life.
Cath Breckell, Essex, England, UK
Another fabulous redspokes tour! The key to their success I think is the involvement of such excellent local people - Ken and his team were fantastic; lots of humour and they offer such an insight into their country that you just wouldn't get with any other tour company.
Laos was an exceptional country and the group was wonderfully diverse and supportive - a great experiece and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wants to get off the beaken tourist track, give themselves a challenge and experience something a bit different.
Helen King, London, UK
