South India Self Guided Cycling Tours
We have spent 20 years pedalling around India from Kanyakumari-Calcutta-Mumbai to journeys through Assam and Darjeeling across Nepal and Bangladesh and every place in between, we know what makes a great cycling experience. From our exploration we have put together some of the best back country cycling in the world here in South India from our classic Coast to Coast route and challenging multi-day tours to more gentle off-the beaten track meandering delights taking in the unique sights and backroads only known to us. Our self-guided tours promise friendly people, authentic experiences and sights and memories that will stay for ever. Nobody knows this area better.

Who should ride self-supported?
Self guided cycling holidays a great option for those who want the freedom to ride and explore at your own pace but don’t want the hassle of logistics and carrying around your own bags. You ride and self-guide and we do the rest. Our self guided cycling tours holidays provide you with routes, knowledgable drivers who know the area, where to eat and the best tea/coffee on route letting you ride with flexibility and freedom.
How it works?
We tailor-make the tour to your requirements. You let us know how many days you wish to ride and we will run you through the options and routes. From there you decide how much support you need from our self guided-lite tours were we provide bikes equipped with panniers, route maps, with professional support only a phone call away and the rest is up to you right through to our fully supported tours where we transport your luggage, book our hand-picked accommodation and your tour manager/support driver is on hand to advise and assist if you need any guidance.

Do we need to know cycle mechanics?
The self guided lite tours are recommended for people who have some experience touring on bicycles and have a basic knowledge of bicycle mechanics and basic repairs. With our fully supported tours your tour manager/driver is not trained to be bike mechanics, but will be able to assist in repairs and will be carrying spares and a tool kit in case things go wrong. While our bikes are in excellent condition and well maintained, any repairs or unexpected breakdowns are expected to be handled by the rider. Throughout your trip, we are only a phone call away for emergencies and queries.
