My Worst Cycling Holiday!

A year and a half ago, I took a cycling tour in Kerala with Exodus. It was absolutely awful. The accommodations were poor, the route was poorly planned, roads were dangerous (poor conditions or lots of crazy traffic) and the majority of the participants became ill from the food. I noticed that the guides would use old-fashioned pedals while riding through town centers and would change to clip-less pedals where it was more safe. Why weren't we warned? In sharp contrast, I had biked in Costa Rica with Exodus with Kevin Hill. His tours are very carefully planned and organized. The hotels are perfect. His routes reflect his attention to details and desire that the participants see the best of Costa Rica. As a result of my negative experience in Kerala, I will never trust Exodus again! It's a shame.

Cycle Kerala & Tropical India

A thoroughly enjoyable and informative holiday - what better way to see a new country than on a bike. This trip was really well organised, enabling us to see a good cross section of southern Indian life.

Cycle Kerela and Tropical India

Our first time to India and the country just blew us away. We enjoyed all of the cycling including that which at first sight seemed impossible. Once you understand how the Indian's drive you will love it! India is a densely populated country and half the fun of cycling here is to participate along with motor bikes carrying whole families, tuk tuks, oxen carts and random cows horses and other livestock - not to mention the legions of smiling school children who all rush out to high five you. Unusual obstacles including unmarked speed bumps, wheat being spread over the road to thresh it, impromptu religious celebrations and wedding processions all add to the fun.

Great trip , recommended - 9th cycling trip

I've done 9 cycling trips to date (not all Exodus), and this definitely rates as one of the best. I took my girlfriend (her first cycling holiday), and it was a good introduction for her to this format of holiday I believe its organised by the same person that does the 'Back Roads of Sri Lanka' trip (done 2 years ago), maps you get everyday are certainly exactly the same format The distances cycled on busy roads is very limited , so no-one had an issue in that regard. Some of us found the busy roads quite exciting, speeds are generally slow, so risk of injury is actually very low

Cycling and more

Kerala and Tropical India by bike. What an experience. Joseph our guide made it so much more than just a cycle ride. India is such an interesting country and we were able to discover some of it without feeling like "tourists".

Kerala and tropical India 8/22Nov

Much stunning scenery. Too much cycling on busy roads. Bike gears too high for the otherwise fun climb up to Ooty. Enjoyed the low key visit to the driver's family farm at Wildhaven. Would have enjoyed more visits to local industries. eg tea factory,coir carpet making,sugar and rubber processing . Space for these could have been provided by reducing temple visiting times.

Cycling is the perfect way to experience the colours, sights, sounds, and smells of this beautiful part of India. Wonderful variety of cycling, scenery, wild life, culture and people. Fabulous food, great company and something new every day.

KERALA & TROPICAL INDIA

A wonderful way to get around to see the diversity and beauty that is Kerala. Good support from tour leaders, comfortable hotels to rest weary legs and tasty, varied food gives a very good introduction to Kerala.

KERALA & TROPICAL INDIA

A great trip for first timers (on a bike trip or to India) and also for more experienced cyclists. Good mix of cycling and South Indian culture, good hotels and great food. Lovely thing to do when its cold and wet at home - its sunny and warm. Great team of staff as well to look after you.
