Laura Russell from London, England rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This was my first cycling holiday and was an absolutely amazing experience. Laos is a remarkable country with unbelievable scenery and the friendliest people I have ever met.

The cycling was difficult in places but it was reassuring to know that it was never far before we would turn the corner and see the van waiting with fresh fruit and hot drinks. I am already thinking about my next trip with redspokes!

Don Stephen from Hockley. Essex rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

What a wonderful trip, being on a bike, seeing the country and the people that package tourists miss out on. The tour was planned with a really good mix of activities, sights and experiences. From out varied accommodation to the small towns and off-road villages we rode through and the great lake with its floating market, restaurant and school and finally the chaos of the Phnom Penh traffic on a bike. Truly a trip to remember at the ripe old age of 76.

All in all an absolutely fantastic trip which has opened my eyes to the huge advantages of seeing a country by bike instead of zooming past in a bus from A to B. Both Ken and Dermot were great tour leaders, always ready with a smile and keen to make sure that everyone was getting the most out of the trip, I loved it!

Thanks for everything.

This was my first redspokes tour and will hopefully not be my last. Our group was a great mix of people, we were in some of the finest cycling landscapes in the World and the organisation and leadership was fantastic. Many thanks for some great memories!

An amazing experience - I would recommend this trip. The scenery was breathtaking - I particularly loved Pakistan, the people were so friendly and our guides so hospitable. We had a great group of cyclists and redspokes really looked after us well... This was my first redspokes tour but it will not be my last... thanks!

Olivia Slee from Perth, Australia rates our  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've been on two tours with redspokes now - Laos & KKH - Kyrgyzstan. Both were spectacular and also excellent value for the price paid - particularly in comparison with trips I have done with other companies.Organisation and support on both tours has been very good - any hiccups were due entirely to local problems and quickly and adroitly overcome by Dermot (leader on both tours).Red Spokes offer to put you in contact with their clients to obtain an 'unbiased' endorsement of any trip you may be considering. But I fail to understand how any but the most mal-adjusted client could be anything but favourably biased.

Rose Mary Owen Cycling on the  tour with redspokes

Rose Mary Owen, Poulton, England, UK

Rose Mary Owen from Poulton, England, UK rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This was an adventure for mind and body. Three very different countries and cultures, fascinating and thought provoking. The mountain climbs, especially the Kunjerab pass, tested my physical strength and the achievement gave deep satisfaction. The sheer beauty of the landscapes was awesome and the gentle, welcoming interest of the people we met along the way provided a memorable sense of encounter. Then there was this whole other dimension of the group and the wonderful mix of fun, support, solidarity and space - companionship at its best. Finally there is Dermot. He has an exceptional sense of adventure, a genuine interest in people and endless resourcefulness that dares to push new boundaries brings all this together and provides a unique experience. Go redspokes!

Trevor Taylor Cycling on the  tour with redspokes

Trevor Taylor, Shropshire, England, UK

Trevor Taylor from Shropshire, England, UK rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

Having toured extensively previously, both with organised groups and independently, my first redspokes trip was a unique and unforgettable experience - a top trip in top company following the road less travelled. It is redspokes' particular combination of adventurous cycling in unexpected destinations and mixing with local people that makes them stand out and makes you feel that you are really on a journey of discovery. And Dermot's unfailing calm and optimism in the face of any logistical difficulties keeps the group's spirits high and the whole show moving on.

redspokes' cycle tour was very well organised and flexible without being restricting and rigid in its itinerary showing us the real Laos and its people along the way.

Mike Shelton, Cheltenham, England, UK

Mike Shelton from Cheltenham, England, UK rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

Really good trip, having spent the previous week cycling on my own in southern Laos/Thailand, it was great to have everything arranged. The big advantage of an organized trip is that you don't have to ride the dull bits and there are interesting extras like the Mekong river trip, the stay in Khens village and the Hmong village visit. The 15 mile interval between stops is just right. The support crew and all these stops added a lot to the trip.

The Manali to Leh trip was fantastic - big skies, big mountains and a real feeling of being "out there". A real challenge and a journey that I'll never forget. It was my fourth redspokes trip and, as ever, Dermot's knowledge of the issues facing the local population and unfailing good humour and enthusiasm made the experience all the more enjoyable.

Rita Gough Cycling on the  tour with redspokes

Rita Gough from Preston, England, UK rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

I have memories that will last me a life time - Travelling to remote places by bicycle is such a great way of meeting ordinary people and gaining a real understanding of how they live. Despite language barriers this type of travel highlights that humour, kindness and interest in each other are universal features of humanity. It's a good for the soul! This was a fantastic group of travelling companions - everyone looked out for each other & great company of like minded people. I think this must have been a difficult tour to run with all the border crossings but throughout I was confident that we were in safe hands.

Three countries in 3 weeks starting in Pakistan. My expectations were high, and I was not disappointed. Breath taking scenery, unbelievably friendly locals, excellent tour organisation and a great bunch of cyclists to travel with. Dermot was an inspiration to us all. His enthusiasm was contagious, his interest in the local community was inspiring andhis watchful eye always adjusting details to suit our needs. A great tour by a great company.

I would recomend highly the Red Spokes tour over the South Downs. The guide was excellent as was the organisation of the whole 3 days.The choice of food and accommodation was well thought out and the hospitality top drew. The mix of people and personalities, Dermot and Nick included, made for a very enjoyable weekend that I will be trying again soon.
Cathy Sheehan Cycling on the  tour with redspokes

Cathy Sheehan from Auckland, New Zealand rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

When I heard the wildest people from the 2005 redspokes Laos tour would be cycling from Karakoram to Kyrgyzstan in 2007, it was impossible to turn down, even though I knew some of the cycling would probably be too tough for me - but that's what the bus is for. Pakistan was a revelation - the hospitality and goodwill were outstanding. The taste of Uighur culture on the edge of China was fascinating, and mysterious mountainous Kyrgyzstan was as spectacular as I imagined. Imagine seeing yaks, camels, ibex and eagles from your bike, but rarely spotting another tourist. An outstanding experience - great crew of guides, drivers and cooks, wonderful company, music and fun - and all with the magic touch of Dermot who pulls the whole thing together and seemingly effortlessly makes sure everyone has a great time.

I was hugely impressed by the Organization throughout the tour, which was always low key/relaxed, yet clearly well planed. A huge thank you for designing an experience that'll stay with me for many years - the combination of cycling, scenery and meeting local people was superb. Few experiences live up to expectation, especially when you are really looking forward to something, but "lost in time" not only lived up to expectation, but exceeded it. Thank you

A fantastic trip Dermot, even better than you described it. We cycled for days without seeing another westerner. This was very much the real Vietnam very much off the beaten track and away from all the usual tourist traps.Your local guides were great - and so much history and culture to take in. What more could you want!

I enjoyed the tour immensely - well organized, well led a good bunch of participants who were all friendly and prepared to make the effort to all get on. Dermot was a wonderful tour leader with great skills to deal with people on tour. Mr Arman and Mr Lee, both wonderful, I can't praise them enough for their help, support, hard work, humour, information and friendliness.

The combination of scenery and people make for a fascinating and unforgettable trip. A great chance to explore an area that is difficult to access independently in a 2 week time span. redspokes is a great company offering fabulous trips. It's got the blend of support and independence just about right. Keep it up.

redspokes goes beyond providing exciting and rewarding cycling through breathtaking landscapes and fascinating countries - it takes you right inside exotic cultures and communities. I've travelled with Red Spokes through South East Asia, Pakistan, China and Kyrgyzstan and a consistent theme has been Dermot's use of local hand-picked guides to ensure that there are opportunities to delve deeper and get to really good understand of the countries you visit. The tours seek to provide everyone with opportunities. If you want to explore, to cycle hard, enjoy shared experiences, be affected by rather than just see a country ,redspokes has room for you- just bring your sense of adventure........... and fun.

I lived in Scotland for 30 years but would never have seen the remote Highlands if not for redspokes. A wonderful holiday experience with a broad range of friendly and interesting people. The group was of varying abilities from beginner to very good. All were able to ride at their own pace and no one missed out on anything. I'm now looking forward to further trips with redspokes.

My first ride with redspokes, fantastic route through country lanes and bridleways, great bunch of people, well organised for all levels of ability, thanks Dermot, Ian and the team. Highlight of the day assent to the top of the South Downs with great views in what was perfect weather then a coast down to the Pier on Brighton front. Definitely looking forward to my next trip with redspokes.

This is the 2nd time I have been away with Redspokes on a UK cycle weekend. The trip to West Wales was thoroughly enjoyable - we were cooked a feast on the first night and stayed in lovely accommodation. The guide was first class, the organisation worked like clockwork and the riding itself was fun in very scenic setting.Thanks again to Red Spokes for your personal touch and highly enjoyable tours. They always seem to attract friendly individuals, which is an addedbonus.

A1, magic trip, one of my best. I'd always wanted to do the Karakoram Highway and thanks to Dermot's enthusiasm and know how, I fulfilled my dream.

Some of the best mountain scenery in the world from a bike saddle! Very friendly local people and a really helpful local guide Arman.

The cycling on this tour is superb. Tough uphills and excillerating downhills among some of the most spectacularscenery on the planet. Mix this with great company and slik organisationfrom the wildly enthusiastic Scot and tour leader, Dermot McWard, and you have exactly the right recipe for 21 great days out, all in a row.

A great trip, the cycling was just right for me - a no more that averagely fit cyclist- at the end of the day I still easily had enough energy to enjoy the great hospitality of this beautiful county. Swimming in the Atlantic Ocean from a deserted golden beach was real unexpected bonus.

We had a fab weekend on the South Downs it was a great trip, a real challenge - but an enjoyable one. I think there was a real sense of achievement felt by everyone when we arrived at Winchester it was great - and to cap it all I lost 4lbs so maybe you should market this as a slimmers cycling weekend!

A brilliant trip extremely well led by Dermot from redspokes. You need a mountain bike for the terrain and sometimes good legs but everyone helps each other and a backup is there if you need it. The scenery and the people were fascinating. The local population are friendly and often seen in authentic ethnic dress, not because of tourists as there weren't many, but because that's what they genuinely wore. I have cycled in lots of places but this trip was a real new experience. My advice - go now and see it as I saw it before it all changes.

John Lingford Cycling on the  tour with redspokes

John Lingford from London, England, UK rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

It was always a cycling 'must do' for me. Cathedral Mountain by moonlight, snow covered peaks, glaciers, and this is just the run-up to the Khunjerab Pass where we looked into China, and saw Ibex, marmots and yak (well, dots in a distant snowfield that we were told were yak).

A fantastic trip, providing a real insight into the daily life and culture of the Hunza Valley.

I jumped at the chance to go and it exceeded even my high expectations.

Thank you Redspokes very much for taking us out, I really had a wonderful day. The route was beautiful and fun all the way, nice one!I enjoy cycling (around town and to get into work, mainly) but I had never done a long ride before. I will now start to do long distance rides as often as I can, and very possibly organise a "bike-holiday" this summer. If you are organising a ride next month we would like to join it if you still have places available.

I loved the Ireland trip. The friendly people around Donegal were great. A highlight for me was the climb up Mt Errigal with the stunning views. Dermot and Dalla made everything pleasurable because of their support and encouragement.The B&Bs were comfy and the food in the evenings was as good as you could wish for. I would recommend this tour forthe mixof interesting cycling (inland and coastal) and the relaxed atmosphere.

I had a really enjoyable trip to Laos with redspokes last year and I was wondering if the Cambodia trip could be such a good experience. I needn't have worried, the trip was great. The visit to Angkor Wat in particular was very memorable. The cycling was varied and interesting and had some flexibility which seemed to allow all the group to enjoy it. I would definitely go on another redspokes trip.

Hotels for me are about location rather than facilities, I get the feeling that where there are really nice hotels you had found them and we stayed in them and in other places we stayed in the nicest available. Camping was great too.

I had an excellent time, the variety of rides, challenges, terrain and scenery coupled with unsurpassed support and service from all the guides and supporters made for a great holiday despite problems encountered with my own bike. May have ruined biking back home in the UK as I can't see me being able to get the sense of achievement or exhilaration that was got from everyone involved.

Looking forward to giving the Tibet trip a go in the near future with Suresh hopefully as guide.

Cycling through the dramatic landscapes of the Pamirs with barely any traffic all day (especially when on the plateau) and thinking it can't get better than this but it does around the next bend, is an experience to be treasured. But the abiding memory is of the astonishing hospitality and generosity of the Pamiri people who would humble you by joyfully offering all they had with you unable to offer anything in return.

Having taken up cycling again at 60, after years of doing the couch potato, this was my first trip with Red Spokes, and indeed my first to Ireland.I could not believe my luck - each day a tremendous ride climbing steadily through remote and magnificent mountain routes, then descending to the golden beaches and estuaries towards the end of the day, to a welcoming, homely B&B.And a relaxing evening enjoying the variety of good pubs, food and music wherever we went. All of this in the company of a friendly easy going group of fellow cyclists, and encouraging and enlivening leadership and support of the Red Spokes team.

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.

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.

Despite suffering badly from altiude sickness (I was only well enough to do three days cycling) I have come away feeling I had a great trip and feel privilegd that I was able to stay with the group and to have seen the Himalayas. ( this was only possible because of the excellent care and support I recieved from Felipe Sushil and my husband Mark).I may be tempted one day to give it another go!

From stepping off the plane in Delhi to riding the highest mountain pass in the world the trip was special and full of extremes and beauty. There were very tough moments and the challenges were met by a great group of people helped and guided by the local people, The support and back up were fantastic and with everyone coming home in one piece a great testimony to a well planned expedition.

This is a great trip! The Indian partners went out of their way to ensure our comfort and safety throughout. Campsites were chosen with care and were all very nice. The food was first rate! The care taken to acclimatize people was appreciated, as most of us had minimal altitude-related issues. I would recommend this trip to any of my experienced cycling buddies; this was probably the best value for money I've received for any cycling trip I have done.

Having been on many supported trips in Asia, the situation of lodging and food is always somewhat of an adventure; but usually wonderful, and this trip was no exception. Regardless, the best or worst accommodations and/or food quality become secondary when the guide is a caring and enthusiastic person, such as Mr. Ox in Nepal. No matter the distance, weather, conditions, lodging, food, or whatever, Ox was always there to be a positive force in every aspect of our trip!

This trip to Tibet and the chance to cycle The Roof Of The World has to be the ultimate experience for any rider. Steeped in history and mystery, Tibet remains a truly wonderful wilderness, and if the altitude doesn't take your breath away the views certainly will! If you are looking for a challenge and something that little bit different, this is the perfect trip. Everyone should do it.

This is why we travel. The warmth and friendliness of the Cambodian people will stick with us for a long, long time. Fantastic coast, amazing history, gorgeous food, but more than anything, the people. Cycling through the villages and being greeted by enthusiastic, excited people is a great feeling, and the nearest we'll ever get to the Tour de France. If you need a reminder of what's really important in life, take a cycling holiday in Cambodia.

Impressed with Mr Huang, everything well organised and able to vary itinerary if requested. Mr Leap, our driver was very supportive and safe. Having been on same tour last year, it was nice to see some variation to the itinerary e.g. Visiting different temples and different routes each day.The specialist guide at the Angkor temples was excellent.The bikes needed some attention at the outset and not all gears engaged during the tour. All in all a great tour and one I would strongly recommend.

Fantastic riding every day, which was sometimes quite challenging, and the right amount of rest days. What really made this trip stand out and be so rewarding was the variety of landscape and terrain. Definitely more mountain biking than touring, but in the best possible way.

Nepal was not what I expected, it was dustier and busier and more full of life. Definitely worth it - just book it. Then get training!

This truly for me was the trip of a lifetime and every day lived up to my expectations and beyond.Its impossible to explain the amazing scenery and the emotion at being at the rooftop of the world! Even on the toughest days there was always something that made you smile. This is an incredible adventure. We had a wonderful group, relaxed and fun to be with.The support and encouragement was always in abundance. David our "leader" ;-) and all the support team Tibetan and Nepalese did an incredible job looking after us, the meals they turned out to say the least were spectacular!!! I couldn't fault a thing! This was my third redspokes tour and you continually get it right... Well done and I look forward to choosing my next adventure with you.

I really had a fantastic trip, it was well organised, the support crew were great and the cycling was beyond what I could have imagined. To cycle through such remote and rugged country and meet up with people who are living as their forefathers have done for hundreds of years has made this the standout of my cycling holidays. This has been the best 'bang' for my cycling 'buck' ever.

This was a fascinating journey from start to finish with a great group of fellow cyclists, guides and support crew. I feel a huge sense of achievement having completed the journey. Both Tibet and Nepal are stunningly beautiful countries. Cycling in the Everest region is an experience that will stay with me for many years. I would definitely recommend redspokes to anyone I know who is thinking of doing a long distance cycling trip. Everything ran extremely smoothly and I think this has a lot to do with the experience of the guides and the well thought out organisation that went into the planning of the trip.

What an amazing experience. Our crew was superb and kept us fed like kings the entire trip. It was an adventure that is unforgettable, cycling through Tibet and Nepal allows for a very hands-on tangible experience. The climbs were testing given the effect of altitude; however, the reward was the best views and descents ever. Dropping down from the high Tibetan plateaus and into the valleys of Nepal was spectacular. Thank you to the crew and to my fellow riders for making this just so magic :-)

Kyrgystan is a wonderful place, and this trip, was the first redspokes had made with an official tour group. Despite some teething problems, the trip was exciting, culturally rewarding, and gave us day after day of amazing scenery. 

It was tougher than the 6/10 billing due to the majority of the route being off-road, but don't let that put you off!

I had a wonderful holiday and I would particularly like to comment on how wonderfully Phea managed the trip. I experienced him as a warm, unassuming person, inobtrusive in his manner, putting me at ease. He has a natural ability with people which enabled him to 'hold' the tour. He was aware of each member and quietly took care of us all. He laughed a lot! His great sense of humour and playful fun (echoed by the 2 drivers) rippled through the holiday. It would not have been the same trip without Phea - he would not be easily replaced!
