If you’ve been admiring the stunning Yangshuo landscape and wondering to yourself whether or not you could push a bike through all those jutting mountains and plunging valleys, the answer is a definite YES! Ride out of town and into the countryside and get lost among the endless trails. Discover pine forest runs, muddy single track, killer climbs and rocky down hills – just remember to look up once in a while to see the incredible scenery that surrounds you! Join one of our guides for some great cross country riding or something more technical in this truly awesome part of China. Beginner to advanced riders welcome with singles to large groups catered for. Every ride is different…we’ll design a route that suits your abilities, time frame and riding style.

Tour Route

We have several different routes to choose from to suit riders abilities and interests - cycle more challenging trails along the Li River and Xing Ping or take a scenic route from Yangshuo along the Yulong and Jinbao River Vallys.  Rides are from 30km to 70km and range from a mix of trail, tractor trails, sealed backroads and more technical trails with steep climbs and downhills.  We'll outline a route for you when you contact us and routes can be altered on the day also.

Starting from our shop in Yangshuo town, we'll set up your bike and go over the route for the day.  We'll cycle out of town and be cycling in the countryside within minutes.  Our routes will take you along riverside trails, through bamboo and pine forests and up into the karst mountains to give you spectacular views of the surrounding scenery far away from the crowds.  We'll stop for a local lunch before hitting the trails and making our way back to the Bike Asia shop in Yangshuo for a cold beer.

Start & Finish Point

We would normally reccomend starting all our Yangshuo local tours at the Bike Asia Shop in Yangshuo town centre.  This way we can fit you out with bikes that suit you, particualrly if you are unsure of what size bike you prefer.  If you are happy for us to choose bikes for you, and it is more convenient, we can start and finish the tour at your hotel.  Just let us know your preference when you book or chat to us about what the options are.

Tour Duration

Generally, this tour works best starting around 9am with no particular finish time: the finish time depends on your cycling ability but will likely end before or around 4pm.  Booked as a private tour, you have the flexibility to set times that suit you - once again, just let us know what you prefer when you book.

On Demand Tour

This is an On Demand tour which means you can book it at any time during the availability period - March to December - and it is a Private Tour.  If you would like to open your booked tour to allow others to join - for some tours this might, but not always, mean a discount in price - we can advertise the departure date to allow fellow travellers to share the experience with you.
