One of the very best cycling trips we've done

We really loved this cycling holiday! - more than I was expecting, as some of the prior reviews had been less than stellar, but Exodus have made changes and it went very well indeed. The Burmese people, scenery, climate,and food were all wonderful. We were in a great group of 10 of varying ages, interests and stories to share. Before leaving I was concerned that maybe there might not be enough cycling for my taste, but it was enough for me, and typical of their other moderate cycling holidays. I see this as a “use cycling as an enabler to see the real Myanmar”, rather than as a cycling holiday in a nice location. The total distance is around 440km over 11 days, ranging from 16 to 60 km. Hotels were overall good; better than I’d anticipated. Most provided coffee making stuff, hot showers. Some were wonderful with pools and spas. Wifi was provided in all, but their access to the internet was poor so it was common to connect but have no access, or very slow intermittent access. The bikes are new Trek Marlin 7’s with 29” wheels on the larger frames, and 650’s (I think) on the smaller. They were meticulously maintained by the mechanic. Tires were fat, which I realized were needed within a few km on our first day – there are several off-road sections with rocks or soft sand, which would be very muddy in the wet season. Roads were excellent with few significant potholes (way better than in India on last year’s trip, or back home in Canada). The support team provided water, sports-drink powder, fruit and snacks at the rest stops, which were generally every 15km or so.

Cycling through tropical Costa Rican scenery, Costa Rica

Costa Rica - Coast to Coast

This is a good trip, it can be very hot and humid in places so be prepared for some sweaty cycling. The scenery is great and there are quite a few breathtaking views down into the valleys, the wildlife is quite sparce but it is there if you look for it, and the guided walks and boat tours are well worth the effort if wildlife is what you are looking for. Some of the hotels are not of a very high standard compared to the U.S. and pretty basic, don't expect to sit watching TV in the evening as most of the hotels didn't have one. There are a few lodges which are really nice, there is one in particular that has a pool which overlooks the sea, it is worth waiting around for the sunset (but wear insect repellent!) The food is ok but like everyone else has said be prepared for rice and beans for breakfast, lunch and dinner! It says moderate but there are some pretty big hills that will challenge even the fittest cyclist! The cycling days are pretty short and could/should have been longer. When you consider this is a cycling holiday, you do spend quite a lot of time in the bus so be prepared with books/ipod etc..

Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour 2013, South Africa

Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour

A great 10-day trip through the stunning interior and dramatic coastal roads of South Africa. The cycling was testing but thoroughly enjoyable throughout. The trip was supposed to culminate with the Cape Argus 104km road race but nature intervened and wild fires meant the race was curtailed to a leisurely 47km.......no problems after a few 100km days in the saddle over the previous days. I will be back to do the whole race next year!

An amazing cycling adventure coast to coast through the soul of India

You do need to be both a confident and competent cyclist not only to cope with the wonderful mayhem that is Indian town traffic but also the distances in the heat, however the rewards of this is getting to see and visit areas of India that most do not. The sights,sounds and smells as you ride along are a delight and a photographers dream. The accommodation was wide ranging from modern hotels, home-stays and magical old Indian hotels. All the food through out the journey exceeded our expectations with wonderful Tamil and Keralan cuisine. We really had a great adventure - a highly recommended trip. Thank you Exodus!

Best Trip I've done!

A brilliant and very memorable trip! The team of guides and assistant porters really brought the trip together and the food during the trek was amazing. It is a trip of a lifetime, this was genuinely the best trip I have ever done.

North India Explored

This was a fantastic introduction to Northern India. The trip covered a lot of ground and exposed us to the culture, architecture, and food of Northern India. There was a new highlight every day. Even the long bus rides were a pleasure as there is so much to see passing through towns, villages and different landscapes.

Whales and Leopards of Sri Lanka

What a beautiful country! Very clean and organized, compared to India. We saw plenty of blue whales, the largest mammals on the planet, and had 7 leopard sightings. A great experience.

Cycling Cuba

Good trip. Cuba is a very interesting place which I still didn't understand despite lots of presentations by our group leader. The riding is graded 'moderate' but I'd say it's top end of moderate, verging on moderate/challenging, compared with the other moderate trip we've done, Indo-China.

South India Explored

This was my secound Visit to the South of India and I was thrilled to have the same guide as last year Afshar Ashraf who made the trip so good. I was a little disspointed in the east side of India much preffering the West coast but all in all another great Exodus trip thank you
