This trip is designed for those who are fit, energetic and enjoy cycling. We are each supplied with a mountain bike as we travel from Saigon, via the central highlands and the stunning coastline, on to Hanoi, visiting the fascinating attractions of this beautiful country along the way. This is neither an endurance test nor a marathon survival race from one point to another and we try to avoid the busy, major highways. We ride instead on the back roads and, supported by a back-up vehicle, experience the best that Vietnam has to offer in a most interesting way! There are some days where there is no cycling involved. On the cycling days, we tend to ride anywhere from two to six hours, however the support vehicle and bus are always on hand if you decided that you would like to rest instead of cycle.
