Travelling with Bike Asia
We believe cycling is the best way to travel. Our tours are designed as cycling holidays and are accessible to people of all cycling abilities. We have handpicked our routes and itineraries for their excellent cycling as much as for their appeal as interesting travel destinations and the experiences they offer. You still get to experience all those things you look for in a normal holiday (well, maybe not so much lounging on the beach!) - meeting local people, eating the local food, seeing the sights, learning about exotic languages and cultures - and you also get the unique satisfaction of propelling yourself through all these experiences at a pace that allows you the time to really see and absorb them. And on top of that, doing it by bike turns it all into a real adventure!
Inspiring Leaders and Guides
Our cycling leaders are passionate about cycling and about Asia. They take pride in sharing their knowledge and experiences and are always there to make sure you get as much as possible out of your holiday. Most of all they are just great fun to hang out with! We also provide an English speaking local guide, wherever possible, so that you can ask questions from those who really know best. Along with our local crews you're sure to gain an insight into local culture as well as having the pleasure of traveling with our friends!
Some trips may require higher degrees of physical fitness than others but should you need to take a rest, or just want to put your feet up, there will be a seat for you and a place to put your bike in our support vehicle. All our scheduled departure tours include the services of a bike mechanic so you won't have to worry about losing time on the road. Specific details on terrain, cycling conditions, distance covered each day and altitude profiles are available on our trip pages. Simply choose the adventure cycling experience that suits you.
Scheduled Departures and Custom Tours
Bike Asia offers regularly scheduled departures for individual travellers. These may have varying minimums (from 1 to 5) and are guaranteed to depart at the stipulated minimum.

Keeping It Real
Along with our passion for cycling, adventure and discovery, we also believe in a philosophy of ethical travel. Respect for people, cultures and the environment is fundamental to us and to how we operate. As a locally-based company (in Asia) we prefer to work with and support the development of local people, operators and businesses in the regions we travel through. Our philosophy is one of low impact on the environment and high local involvement in our business.
