Top countries for winter cycling

Added 06 Jun 2014
Top countries for winter cycling
 

Escape the British winter and choose an adventure to one of our top six picks for a winter cycling holiday.

winter cycling vietnam

Vietnam
On a bike you experience Vietnam up close and personal. As cycling is a part of everyday life you can expect to be welcomed and waved at enthusiastically. Major attractions such as Hanoi, Halong Bay and Saigon lie on the flat coastal strip while the highlands in the south offer more challenging terrain, so there are rides to suit all cycling abilities. The local cuisine is superb and a highlight for many visitors - what better way to work up an appetite than riding your bike?

winter cycling india

India
India is an enormous country of great diversity with a rich history and culture to be discovered on two wheels. There are many beautiful routes to explore away from the bustling cities; cycle downhill through the Western Ghats, pedal the back roads and rural villages of Rajasthan or ride the tropical coastline, tea, rubber and spice plantations of ‘God’s own country’ in Kerala. With so much to see you may want to do more than one trip!

winter cycling morocco

Morocco
An exotic and great value destination within easy reach of the UK, the mild climate of Morocco between October and April makes it an ideal escape from winter back home. The Atlas Mountains provide a dramatic backdrop to rides through palm-fringed gorges, across desert plateaux and past fortified Kasbahs. Explore colourful souks (shopping heaven!), stay in Berber villages and spend a night under the stars in a Saharan nomad desert camp.

winter cycling cuba

Cuba
A Caribbean island with a fascinating blend of Latin culture and revolutionary politics, Cuba has fewer cars than most countries in the world so it is perfectly suited to a cycling holiday. The old world charm of colonial towns is complimented by the scenery and you will encounter many locals on bikes, horse-drawn carts and some classic American cars. Pedal past fields of tobacco and sugar cane and celebrate in the evening with mojitos, superb live Latin rhythms and a Havana cigar.

winter cycling south africa

South Africa
Swap our winter for summer sun in South Africa – a country that rewards cyclists with varied and exceptionally beautiful landscapes. Explore the ‘rainbow nation’ on two wheels with a ride along the Garden Route and at the end of each day reward yourself with superb food and a well-deserved glass of local wine.

winter cycling burma

Burma
Tourists are slowly flocking to Burma in greater numbers but it still retains all of its charm and appeal as a devoutly Buddhist country that has changed little in the modern age. Visiting Burma by bike is a refreshingly different way to see this special country and instantly gets you away from the busy honeypot highlights. Travelling by bike enables you to get under the skin and closer to the welcoming locals to understand their traditional way of life. You can visit all year round but the best time is from October to February as the rains cease and temperatures are milder.
