Cycling in Sri Lanka - The time of my life

AlisonBy Alison   Posted 23rd May 2019

I had – quite literally – the time of my life cycling in Sri Lanka!
After joining the wonderful Sip of Ceylon self-guided tour in this fascinating country I have shared a few photos and a little about my experience below:

Sri Lanka by bike beautiful landscape

Stunning landscape everywhere

Sri Lanka is a stunning and wonderful mix of diverse terrain and experiences for a traveler: rainforest, amazing beaches, mountains, lush tea and rice territory, busy cities and towns.

Don't forget elephants!

And friendly and curious people at every stop! It's a gorgeous country.

Grasshopper – through their supremely helpful and reliable support every day – have provided a cycling adventure in Sri Lanka nothing short of perfect. I have cycled (solo – as this trip was) in Vietnam, Mexico, Bulgaria, throughout Western Europe, the UK, and Canada – and I can honestly say this was a fabulously supported trip.

Sri Lanka by bike ebike

I couldn't make it the whole trip without this e-bike

I loved using an e-bike! I never had previous to this. But I know - even though I'm a fit cyclist - that I would not have been able to complete the mountainous cycling without one. Great!

I am so appreciative of it all: the perfectly-planned daily routes, the excellent bicycle & gear, and the caring and expert daily assistance I received. Sri Lanka is an incredible country - and experiencing it via bicycle in a well-organized fashion was fantastic!

I will never forget this amazing trip!

Bike tours in Sri Lanka

We have an exciting range of multi-day cycling tours in Sri Lanka. Bike through the scenic tea plantations of the Hill Country, go leopard spotting on a safari in Yala National Park, and relax in gorgeous Galle and the beaches of the south. History, culture, amazing landscapes, friendly faces and one of the highest rates of biological endemism in the world - Sri Lanka has it all!
