Giselle Whish, Paddington, Australia
This cycling tour of Uzbekistan was jam packed with unique experiences, exceeded all my expectations and left me with many wonderful memories of the landscapes, people, culture and history. The cycling was challenging with many different terrains to tackle but ultimately hugely rewarding as we were guided through mesmorising remote wilderness steppes. The tour provided opportunities to appreciate the rich history and culture of this fascinating central Asian region.
Doug Pulleyblank, Vancouver, Canada
Over three mountain ranges, ending up in three of the most amazing cities of the silk road! Incredible rock formations in the mountains, some very cool single-track, camping with herds of horses wandering around — everything in Uzbekistan seems to be about water management as we followed rivers and streams from the mountains towards the desert. As on other tours, great people, great biking, great food, great guides.
John Homer, Cullompton, England, UK
Two tours in and i am booked on a third. The Red Spokes team keep close to their customers experience and you feel they really want you to have a great time.
I would highly recommend the experience and I cant wait for my next tour.
Jeremy Whish, New South Wales, Australia
The trip was really enjoyable. The road surfaces were rough which was a challenge at times, but the support team were fantastic and the felling of accomplishment at the end of the ride was really satisfying.
Ines Versteegden, Amstelveen, Netherlands
This was a great journey! Cycling through the mountains and small villages was beautiful. The tracks were not too difficult to ride and the scenery was great, relaxed distances, quiet roads. Camping at splendid locations. Super staff: very friendly, always helpful and assisting with the bikes when having a puncture. Good guiding too, during cycling as well as city tours. The cooks prepared good and delicious food, and plenty of meatless options if desired. Next the visits to the historical cities, magnificent, interesting guided tours. Also some time to relax and admire all. This part of the tour was more busy, but worth it. All was well organized.
Mark Glaisher, Gillingham, England, UK
There were plenty of contrasts during our trip through Uzbekistan! The carefully chosen route passed into the mountains and across plains, and often there was hardly a building in sight, let alone a village. Coming to remote settlements we were made really welcome – cyclists are not common. Once we reached the bigger towns there was the bustle of buses, motorbikes, donkey carts and so on, whilst the travel for the classic tourism sites (Bukhara, Samarkand and Tashkent) was by High Speed Train. This was my fourth redspokes trip, and as on previous ones the support was really good. Our local guide filled in gaps in our knowledge, and the crew was on hand for the food stops during the day and to give any mechanical help. After a day’s riding, arriving at the camping place with the facilities set up and the afternoon tea on the go, was great. Such a variety of food, too; freshly prepared with little repetition, and there was always provision for me, a vegetarian. A memorable tour for all the right reasons.
Sarah Howes, Tonbridge, England, United Kingdom
This was my first time travelling with Redspokes and the cycle tour in Uzbekistan did not disappoint – it was a fantastic experience. Although a regular cyclist, mountaineer and camper, I’d never done a cycling trip like this before or visited this part of the world so for me it was such an adventure! Riding through the arid and desolate landscape, dotted with colourful oases and villages that seemed straight out of the Old Testament (albeit now with electricity, cars and mobile phones!) meant we truly saw the real Uzbekistan. Riding over the vast high plateaux was exhilarating and great fun! There was also some very challenging terrain at times. The support crew were absolutely fantastic and looked after us really well. They provided plenty of food & drink, and a huge variety, three times a day. Camp was always tidy, well organised, bikes checked and fixed/adjusted and even hot water for the shower tent. Sightseeing in Bukhara, Samarkand and Khiva was absolutely fascinating and a great complement to the ‘wild’ part of the trip.
