What are your Bicycle like?

We have tested the bikes in pretty much every type of road that Myanmar has to offer and they have survived really well. These bikes are easy to handle and for the smaller roads, they are quite the winners. Top speed we have reached on a good straight road is 100 km/h so you can get a nice feeling of speed as well. We have even ridden some trekking tracks with these beasts so of-road […]

Is it safe to cycle in Myanmar?

Yes! Road conditions in Myanmar are improving day by day and we have planned and tested our tours so there is enough challenge but things will not get too hazardous We have experienced some of the worst roads in Myanmar and survived them with pride, but that being said after a while its not fun cycling anymore so most of our routes go on asphalt roads. Security situation is stable in most parts of Myanmar and we are constantly getting information about the security situation in the rural areas of the country. We are not taking you to places where the security situation might be bad. We have a support truck following […]

What to wear?

We recommend quality gloves, shoes, sunglasses and sports/cycling wear as essentials. It is also good to take some warm clothes for the road, because in some parts of the country mornings and evenings can be bit cold. During the day it usually gets so warm that wearing a t-shirt is just enough.
