Bhutan Cycling Tours
Mountain cycling in Bhutan is relatively new, but within the span of short time it has gained much momentum among the locals as well as visitors. Bhutan Senses Travel has been offering limited number of Bhutan Cycling Tours for a decade but since last year, after some consideration into the serious survey, we have decided to make a strong commitment to encourage mountain cycling for visitors to Bhutan.
Our first step was to encourage this among our staffs, especially among our guides. Bhutan Senses Travel has helped our guides in purchasing their bicycles, gears and hired professionals to train them in maintenance and repairs. We built a bicycle parking ramps outside our office as our long term commitment to cycling.
Since then we have been exploring Bhutan on the bicycles during our down time, riding along some of the trails where people had never expected to see bikes. Every one of us is so excited and is eager to start a local cycling club that will encourage others in the country and make Bhutan a cycling friendly country.
Bhutan Senses Travel owns several latest TREK & GIANT mountain bicycles along with some gears for our guests to rent at negligible fees. We have custom fitted 4WD Pick-Up vehicles to carry these bicycles, along with gears and supplies as support vehicle for mountain cycling trips. We also provide option to camp in our Deluxe tents in far flung places. We carry basic first-aid medical kit, food and fuel for riding off-road location.
Our Packaged Mountain Cycling Holidays are NOT meant to be an extreme sport. They are simply a way to stay active, cover larger areas than by walking, see remoter places and yet be with nature. Our cycling trips tend to focus on less traffic road, country back road, farm roads and wide walking trails that leads through forests, farmland and quaint villages, affording a sneak peek into their ways of life amidst bountiful nature and savoring these experience on slow, steady pace of your bicycles and whenever you cannot ride any longer, just hop onto our support vehicle. For those who are looking to do serious mountain cycling, contact us and we will be happy to customize based on your experience.
Bhutan is a natural Mountain Cycling Country with its environment, landscape, villages, valleys, mountain passes and so forth. Its’ not so good road for driving is great for bicycles and with recent addition of many farm roads, that are often not passable even for 4WD vehicles is perfect for our mountain bikes.
