The Way We ride
The route are important for successful cycle tour. Many
tours operators based outside of Vietnam offer biking tours in here
without knowledge about Vietnamese traffic, for example for road bikes in
Vietnam. Most tour operators take their clients straight up Highway One.
When they know how
dangerous and unpleasant cycling on Highway One they may just fly
their clients into town and only take them on a ride around the area. No one
know about Vietnam better than Vietnamese people . As much as we can,
we ride point-to-point and make sure we avoid the worst traffic. We make the
together enjoyable cycle routes with favorite destinations.
We found that many cycling
tours operator base outside of Vietnam provide mountain bike trip , just
riding on asphalt pave road, some route quite busy . In my tours,we have no less than 60% off-road
for mountain bike trip in dirt trails, fire road, single track.

adventure cycle route runs
through an area where there isn't any good accommodation, so we will find a local family
hotel who is happy to work with us . We
are sometimes forced to compromise and stay somewhere more basic than we would
like but it is only for one night at most and then we move on. In these cases we
send our support team out a day in advance to make everything is clean and

those who would like their own room have the option of paying a single

traveler (of the same sex) at no extra cost. If there is no roommate available,
you will cover the additional cost of a single room.

Vietnam. However, on our longer tours the minimum age is 11 years.
The Riding food
During the " BikingVietnam.com"
the main meals are breakfast and the evening meal. Thus, breakfast
should be large and substantial (and include cereals). Breakfasts are
usually Western and Vietnamese food like fire rice, noodle soup, with such fare as eggs, ham and toast, though local
alternatives are nearly always available if you prefer. We recommend that
all participants should bring a supply of their favorite cereals as many
of the hotels where we stay don't yet have cereal on offer at breakfast.
For lunch (picnic) you will need to make sandwiches or Sushi in the
morning, and take some fruit. We recommend you also bring along some of
your favorite energy bars.
Most of our trip are adventure
biking holiday, we usually riding from hotel to hotel and not
moving too far by vehicle . Please understand that Eating local
Vietnamese food as main of food in our tours.
The evening meal will be in a restaurant, we eat dinner together family style, which
means sharing a number of delicious dishes, making sure it is an authentic feast
worthy of hardworking and hungry cyclists. Beer and other alcoholic beverages
are available but are not included in the tour price. We will make sure there are always plenty of carbohydrates
and protein on the menu.
Don't forget adequate hydration is as important as a good meal and so
you should make sure you carry enough water with you. In some stages
there is no where to “top up” along the way. Follow your guides
instructions for each stage. We recommend you use a hydration pack with
at least 2l capacity, rather than water bottles. The water bottles don't
carry as much water, plus it will get warm during the day, they are not
as hygienic and the water bottle cage can get in the way when you may
have to carry your bike.
Most meals are included and since so many
meals we serve feature local cuisines, we do our best to deliver the real thing.
A spread of spring rolls, curries, grills, dumplings, hot and sour soups,
stir-fries and delicious salads at the end of the day is an important ingredient
in a great cycle tour in Asia. Rice is the staple at every meal, although you
will also try many noodle dishes.
