Jason Heffernan Cycling on the  tour with redspokes

Jason Heffernan, Auckland, New Zealand

Jason Heffernan from Auckland, New Zealand rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

The trip was exhilarating, hard, joyful, fun, exhausting, intriguing, interesting and challenging, a good old fashioned adventure. There was not a day that went by that I was not amazed or surprised by something. Ox our guide has done this trip many times and knows the toll the altitude takes on riders, he checked us out everyday to make sure we were OK, if you were not 100% on any given day, he would recommended spending a day or half day to recuperate in the support van. Its a long ride and wearing yourself out too early means spending the whole trip in the van! His Nepal team were superb, they made sure we had an abundance of food and drinks to keep the wheels turning. Special mention, Jenzen from the Tibetan team, he was so friendly and informative about his culture and country, thoroughly enjoyed his company and knowledge.

Ox is a strong and caring team leader who leads an extremely supportive group of helpers that made the trip easier and more enjoyable. The food was enjoyable and plentiful. Patrick was always available to fix mechanical issues with the bikes while also dealing with camp setup and tear down. Our local Tibet guide was incredibly knowledgeable and humorous. This is an extremely physical and mentally challenging tour, you will learn and test your limits within a group of very supportive cyclists and crew. Ox was a marvel at keeping track of our mental and physical well being and usually knew when someone was having an bad day before we did. This was my second visit to Nepal and the warmth and friendliness of the locals combined with the stunning scenery make it a must visit destination for world travels.

Another great redspokes trip in a remote, hard-to travel-to Asian location. Deserving of its 10/10 rating due to altitude, repeated camping and Nepali roads, although it should be noted that the majority of this route is now good-quality surfaced road.

Douglas Pulleyblank Cycling on the  tour with redspokes

Douglas Pulleyblank, Vancouver, Canada

Douglas Pulleyblank from Vancouver, Canada rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This was not an easy trip but it was a great trip. Before signing up, I had no idea what it would be like to go over multiple 5,000m passes. Now I know. I now know what it's like (answer = hard: effects of elevation, effects of long climbs (at elevation), wind, snow, sun, etc.), and I also know that I can do it. I did it! 

The country is beautiful. Everything is so big. Sometimes vistas were similar to other places I've been, but always on a bigger scale. Whenever things got tough in terms of the biking, I would find myself at the back of the group, which meant that I would be with Ox (who was riding sweep). He saw everything that happened in the group, how people were riding, who was having problems. This was not my first trip with Ox -- I hope that it is not my last!!

Tibet was absolutely amazing! Our local guides made sure that we were comfortable and safe and the Nepalese support team couldn't have been better: hard working, caring, and an amazing chef (the word cook wouldn't do him justice!). Thank you for taking us on an epic journey!

Martin and Angela White from Carlisle, Cumbria rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

What a fantastic trip ! The weather, altitude and the stunning beauty of the highest mountains in the world all combine into one of the hardest and most rewarding experiences. The excellent care from the guides and crew helped to make this a trip of a lifetime and we would not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone wanting the ultimate cycling holiday.

Andy Wiggans Cycling on the  tour with redspokes

Andy Wiggans, Littleborough, England, UK

Andy Wiggans from Littleborough, England, UK rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

I didn't really know what I was letting myself in for before I started, although Dermot (from redspokes) did a really good job in making sure that my head was ready to deal with the trip, even if my legs weren't. Each turn of the cranks got us one step nearer to completing the journey. I am really proud of myself for completing the trip, despite the fact that I had one bad day, when Dave was incredibly supportive in getting me to the finishing line.

You can't control the weather '“ though this was mercifully kind to us '“ but you can control the quality of leadership and back-up support provided and this far exceeded my expectations. It was absolutely superb and I would have no hesitation in recommending others to undertake this and similar trips with you.

The highlight of the trip was the service provided by the local teams in both Tibet and Nepal; nothing was too much trouble and they made the trip extra special!

Sam Cheesman from Crawley, England, UK rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

Ox and his crew could really have not done any more for us, great food and plenty of it (We are like kings!) whilst camping in amazing locations. They comfortably sorted out any issues that arrised and took us to see the real Tibet and Nepal in all their beauty away from the commercialised centres.

Chris Darke  Cycling on the  tour with redspokes

Chris Darke , Oxfordshire, UK

Chris Darke  from Oxfordshire, UK rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This is a tough trip with long cycling days and extreme attitudes and depending on the time of the year it can also be cold. But the compensation is wonderful vistas and the experience of very different cultures. From Mountains, to Everest base camp, to bustle of Lhasa and in particular Kathmandu, to the decent from 3,700m to just over 1,000m on the worlds longest cycle decent along a river valley which from a beauty perspective truly takes your breath away.

If you like extremes this is a trip not to be missed thanks to redspokes.
