Whether you fancy a Himalayan mountain bike challenge or an Alpine road riding blast in preparation for your next sportive, you will find what you are looking for amongst our global selection of biking adventures.

With a track record that stretches back almost 30 years, KE Adventure Travel has more accumulated experience of adventure cycling holidays than any other tour operator. We took the very first Muddy Fox Courier mountain bikes to Pakistan's Karakoram Mountains in 1986 and had, by the early 90`s, already set up a number of ultra-classic mountain biking holidays such as the Leh to Manali mountain bike traverse in India and the Lhasa to Kathmandu mountain bike ride in Tibet.

Subsequently, our collection of worldwide mountain bike adventures has continued to expand and diversify, with new mountain biking and road cycling holidays being established in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas. Our range of popular biking adventures now includes holidays as different as Jordan's Dead 2 Red ride, Lake Titicaca to Machu Picchu in Peru, the Rajasthan Road Cycling Tour in India and the classic trans-Alp Geneva to Nice road biking adventure.

All of our cycling holidays are created by bikers for bikers and we have biking adventures to satisfy most levels of cycling ability. Our emphasis is on providing bike holidays for regular riders. When you turn up on one of our biking holidays, you know you'll be with like-minded cyclists and this makes a big difference! Whatever your interests or aspirations, we're sure to have an adventure holiday to suit - the hardest part will be choosing one!

Give us a wave if you love Nepal
Pokhara to Kathmandu   Timothy (BATH)

We had an amazing action packed trip, started of by white water rafting near Pokhara followed by 9 days of superb X-C mountain biking. Pramod and the Nepalese cook team looked after us exceptionally well and

provided a wide range of meals. Nights were warm and days were hot (up to 35C), so definitely no need for any warm kit. The X-C biking included a real mix of jeep track, single track downhill, a few k's of tarmac, the choice was limitless. Wild camping with bathing in the rivers was just amazing, the fireflies in the evening were just magic. Cycling through villages that were destroyed by the earthquake 12 mounts ago was a humbling experience, the local always greeted us with the customary greetings and welcome. A must-do adventure.

As was the case with our Catalonia trip, our trip to Morocco was fantastic. Ben Walker and Ahmid are highly professional and sociable guides. Most of us rented bikes and the bike store was top notch. We had

SHMB - Cycle Saigon to Hanoi
Cycle Saigon to Hanoi - Vietnam South to North   Sophie (London)

Before I left, I knew that I was going to like it .... I actually loved it ! This was my first cycling holiday, and I will no doubts have many more holidays similar to this (although I think it is going to be

difficult to ever be as good as that one !). Cycling is a great way to discover a country, and has been really good to cover the full length of Vietnam from south to north, on back roads, enabling us to have an insight of the authentic life of the Vietnamese people. I will always remember the little kids voices screaming "hello" from the back of their houses as we were passing by, or the smiles on the people faces when we were going through countryside villages. This trip is quite challenging and you should come prepared to some serious cycling in very hot temperatures - or you always have the option of the air conditioned van ;-) ! The trip is very well balanced, with the longer and more challenging rides at the beginning, easing up as the time goes when you become a little bit tired. The days off the bike are welcomed and ideally located too. Everything is done for you to enjoy the experience and well thought - from the choice of the hotels, the transports (like taking a plane from Hanoi to Dalat to avoid wasting too much time in the van) and the food your eating, the days were you are free for your dinner so you can have western food for example. There is a good balance between time on the bike and time to rest and the itinerary is great to be challenging but yet achievable to enjoy like a holiday. Last but not least, our guide Tuan was absolutely top star. He is a wealth of knowledge and was able to answer all our questions with humour and authenticity. He has been able to adapt to our small number and our expectations. He proposed us slight changes to the programme to be able to squeeze more fun in - which was greatly appreciated. He seemed truly and honestly pleased to show us his country and opened up on every subject. The driver in the south - Djun was great too, always waiting for us at the next stop with our favourite drink or fruit (which was different for all of us !). In summary, I greatly appreciated : - the format of a cycling holiday that was perfectly planned - the way it was organised : not too much, but not too few, with enough rest but also action, and the possibility to see the main cultural highlights - the tour guide - the comfort of the hotels - the great food : very varied from street food to high end restaurants I can only recommend it to anyone willing to see Vietnam for the first time off the beaten tracks, associating sport with cultural discovery :-)

Pokhara to Kathmandu   Stephen (PETERSFIELD)

This was a 9 day sustained MtB journey with overnight camping so be prepared for a couple of tough days towards the end of the trip. It was hot and humid in March/April so we didn't need any warm clothing,

even at night. The humidity meant misty weather. We only saw the Himalayas on one day, on the transfer day to Pokhara, but that was a great sight. The trail-side scenery and rural life is very varied and continuously interesting. The aftermath of last year's earthquake is evident in the Gorkha region but it was amazing to see how resilient and cheerful the villagers were. They locals are just so open and friendly despite having very hard lives (particularly the women). I found it quite humbling and would encourage others to go to Nepal and help to restore the levels of tourist spending. Our group was four riders and five support staff. It was extremely well supported by Katmandu-based Mountain Expeditions. Their bike guide, Pramod, is a top cyclist and all-round great chap. The chef and camping team were very good too. Thoroughly recommended. Stephen Olivant
