The beautiful cycling routes we choose through Asia are often what set us apart. With our expertise and experience in each country, we’ve found the best paths to cycle through gorgeous scenery and off-the-beaten-path places that show you a more authentic side of each destination. Take in the excited smiles of locals as you pedal through parts of the countryside where few tourists go, climb into the Ha Giang plateau to experience Vietnamese life in the hill tribes, or cycle far from crowds of tourists from Bagan along the Ayeyarwaddy River to Salay. Experience the barren grasslands of Mongolia or the Great Steppe of Uzbekistan on two wheels. Wherever the bike takes you you’ll be sure to see some incredible sights hidden from the eyes of most tourists.
All of our tours emphasize a culturally authentic experience, with visits to locals’ homes, stops at small businesses and NGOs, and plenty of opportunities to connect with the people around you. Many of our tours feature stays in traditional accommodation, as well as meals at restaurants packed with locals, so you see the “real” Asia. Visit village industries by bike such as pottery, silk weaving, and rice paper making for a glimpse at long-lasting traditions. Attend a puppet show in Thailand, a local circus in Cambodia, or traditional dance theater at a monastery in India. Leave Asia with a better appreciation for its culture and the daily lives of its people.
Our expert Grasshopper guides are often cited as being one of the main highlights of our tours. These knowledgeable locals are excited to share the highlights, culture, and history of their countries with you over the course of your journey. Our leaders are also extremely safety conscious and attentive to your needs so you can enjoy your cycling holiday stress-free. In addition to your tour leader, there will also be an assistant guide/mechanic who is there to keep the bikes in good shape and often will lead the pack while the guide cycles among the group. There is also a support vehicle on hand at all times.
One of the best parts of choosing to join a scheduled tour is the people you will meet! Our groups of 4-14 cyclists are always an interesting mix of people from around the world who are brought together by their sense of adventure and love of the great outdoors. You’ll discover Asia alongside these people and may just make friendships that will last a lifetime!
All of the hotels along the routes of our classic Scheduled tours are chosen for their luxury as well as cultural influence. Stay in a Heritage Hotel in India, a traditional Ryokan in Japan, or a rainforest lodge in Sri Lanka. For those traveling alone, we do not charge a single supplement and will pair you with another single, same-sex traveler. If you wish to have your own room, there is the option to pay a single supplement extra cost.
