Cycling is my favourite way to travel. It is a simple matter of packing the bike and going. But the luggage, the itinerary, the bookings, the bike….. there are many good reasons to work with a bike travel company.

I’ve particularly enjoyed cycling with some professionals that organise everything for you. The following organisations are ones I would not hesitate to use again, and therefore can highly recommend.


Brilliant in South East Asia

I’ve taken three trips with SpiceRoads, and each has been fantastic. My favourite was from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai, which did involve a number of off-road sections, including the pictured one!

Snowy River Cycling

Rail trail excellence

The East Gippsland Rail Trail is a fantastic trip, and worth making the time to explore properly. You can do this on your own, but Snowy River Cycling will take care of everything: I can recommend the 4 day self-guided tour.

Outdoor Samoa

Unbelievable South Pacific paradise

After a day of cycling, how does a sandy coral beach sound? Samoa is incredible, brought to life on the Savai’i escape island circumnavigation.
