On our 'Out There' Rides, you'll experience unfamiliar situations such as foreign languages, foreign cultures/cultural experiences, remote areas, and other experiences that push you out of your comfort zone. These Rides are great for adventurous types that are looking for something different. If you'd prefer something a little less exotic, try our 'Familiar' or 'Adventurous' Rides.
The biggest mountains on Earth.
Draped along the greatest heights of the Himalaya, Nepal is where the cold of the mountains meets the steamy heat of the Indian plains. It's is a thoroughly colourful slice of Asia - a land of yaks and yetis, stupas and Sherpas and some of the best mountain biking on earth. Soaring snow-topped mountains shimmer with rainbows of prayer flags, while the intense streets of Kathmandu become a ceaseless frenzy of chattering vendors and garish signs. Nepal’s craggy chunk of the Himalayas offers world-class terrain - peppered with rustic mountain villages, and hundreds of undulating trails that have been trodden upon for centuries.
On the second half, we travel to the contrasting arid Kali Gandaki valley in the remote Lower Mustang region. Following an ancient trade route between Nepal and Tibet, we will ride through the world’s deepest valley on the foothills of some of the tallest mountains on Earth.
