I assume I'm on the same one as MiniEggs, leaving 21st December and arriving 22nd. HB - it may have been taken off the website as trip is sold out?

Anyway minieggs, I've been training, but have a lot more to do! How about you?

Hi all,

Stupidly excited about this..I'm on this trip, looking forward to my second Christmas in Vietnam. I have yet to start any kind of serious training apart from my daily cycle commute and half hearted half marathon training.. Should I be taking this more seriously? Slightly worried that there will be a lot of Lycra clad professionals and I will be out of my depth... I don't have the gear but make up for it with enthusiasm. I love Vietnam, and am really looking forward to seeing the north. Don't forget to get your visas (as the person who will doubtless leave this to the last minute..).

Maybe meet you at the airport..

A daily cycle commute sounds good. Marathon training....eek! I don't cycle at all, so had to make the effort to get out there and get used to it. I'd call it essential training rather than serious training, and I'm hoping it's a holiday cycle not a race! 

Never been to Vietnam, but got my visa last week and bought some beach stuff yesterday, so the excitement is building!

I went on this trip 10years ago . Fantastic. All levels on my trip from experts to novices just team up with your level and no probs.

Hi all

I think I'm on this trip too. Hoping that efforts over the first half of this year will carry me through. I've just booked a an extra last minute cycle holiday in Tenerife first week in Dec - mre for stress relief as opposed to final training for this trip. I'm hoping this will be more leisurely / pleasant than my previousl adventures this year.

How hot is the weather going to be over xmas? I'm hopeless at packing clothing See you in December

Hi ya, me (Frankie) and other alf (Alistair) on this one too.  Our first cycling trip normally go on the walking trips with Exodus.  Ummm - training yes the train to London to watch footie etc don't think that counts!!    The odd sunday morning cycle and trips to the gym, so defo up for a leisurely cycle on this one.   Friends did this trip earlier this year, had a great time and said Vietnam is a great place for picking up cheap outdoor clothing kit. Looking forward to a holiday, meeting you guys and having a good laugh and chill time.

Hi All

Sounds like we are a great mixed group

This is my first time in Vietnam, my first cycling holiday and I don't own any lycra !

I'm definitely an occasional leisure cyclist and more of a walker who likes his food and ale !

I did the Way of the Roses with friends last year and thoroughly recommend it although I admit the big hills were a stretch for me

Really looking forward to this trip as I've not had a proper holiday this year and posted off my passport today to get the visa

I'm staying over at T3 on the Friday night due to past snow problems if anyone else happens to be there the night before we fly

Not long till chill time

Hi All,

I'm breathing a sigh of relief that others are taking their training as seriously as I am, and it is going to become even more challenging as the party season commences.... I was in Vietnam last Christmas and NY and had an amazing time. It is an incredible country.... The weather was warm and very humid in Saigon, but it is likely to be much cooler further north -so layers would be advisable. I would really recommend packing light, as washing services  and new outdoor clothes are really cheap there. Take US dollars and get some dong when you are there, you will pay dollars in markets etc.

I really need to sort out my visa..... Maybe meet you all at the airport for a coffee? 

I think it is only 41 sleeps to go...!

Lycra purchased and fitness, erm, well as fit as I'm going to be. Though that's before the Xmas party season. Next three weeks will be training for the social side of the holiday!

I think I'm on different flights to the group as I'm coming back via Singapore (I'm on Singapore Airlines from T3), so will see you all at the hotel in Ho Chi Minh.

Watched the Top Gear Vietnam trip on iPlayer the other day and I think we basically cycle where they took their mopeds !

But can't as still have 8 days of work to do... And haven't been on my bike for weeks. Very excited but not channelling this into anything useful. Will try to see you at T4, playing the 'who could be on my holiday game' which will be an excuse to talk to random strangers. Please can someone make it stop raining in Vietnam?
