How difficult is Nepal Cycling tour:
This trip is Moderate/Challenging in nature. The majority of the riding is on paved roads or hard packed dirt roads. Most are in fairly good condition but there are also some rough sections. Most of the rides are undulating with some good downhill sections.There are occasional climbs, with some of them being steep. As the trip is 90% vehicle‐supported, there will nearly always be the option to enjoy the scenery from the bus. The leader will inform you in advance about any off road sections where the bus is not around for support. 60% of the cycling is on surfaced roads and on some of these routes there will be traffic. You will be advised of this in the daily briefing. Although it is a moderate trip a good level of fitness is required and you should feel confident cycling for 9 days in sometimes humid conditions (especially in April). As the trip stays at relatively low altitudes (below 3000m) there will be minimal side effects from the altitude and the laid back pace means you can relax and immerse yourself in the local culture.

Nuts & Bolts:
Bikes: Because some people can't imagine going on a trip without their own beloved bicycle, we do not provide mountain bike as part of this tour.
However, you are able to hire bikes from us. Price vary from $15 USD/day to $35 USD/day.The bikes we have are well-known brands of mountain bikes (trek,cannondale) with lightweight alloy frames, 24- to 27-speed gearing, v-brakes as well as disc break with Shimano components and front suspension. If you bring your own bike, please make sure it is a mountain bike, preferably with front suspension, and that it is in good order.
Bike Repairs: Basic spares and tools are carried by the guide and on the support vehicle, though we cannot guarantee to have spares for every conceivable problem. Carrying a basic tool kit, a spare tube, and a pump while riding is recommended.
Safety: Wearing a helmet is required on all our biking adventures and is nonnegotiable. If you do not wear a helmet you will not be allowed to cycle. Your tour leader is trained in first aid and emergency rescue, but to a large degree, you must be responsible for your own safety while riding. It is, therefore, compulsory that you take out travel insurance that will cover you for a mountain biking tour.
Support: Our all cycling tours are supported by vehicles and they are always available for tired cyclists. It is very easy to get bikes on and off, so you can rest when you are tired and cycle whenever you feel like it.
Guides: You will be led by a local English-speaking tour leader. All our tour leaders are well informed about the history, culture, and religions of the area where you are biking and are skilled at passing that knowledge on to you. Your guide is also medically trained and an experienced cyclist, able to handle most minor repairs en route.
