Cycling Conditions This trip is graded B/C, and is classified as a Road trip - please see page 7 of the brochure or the website for more information on grading and trip classification. Average 54km/day (longest ride 80km). The majority of the riding is on paved roads or dirt roads. Some are of fairly good condition but there are also some rough sections. Most of the rides are undulating with some good downhill sections.There are occasional climbs, with some of them being steep. As the trip is 90% vehicle-supported, there will nearly always be the option to enjoy the scenery from the bus. The leader will inform you in advance about any off road sections where the bus is not around for support. 60% of the cycling is on surfaced roads and on some of these routes there will be traffic. You will be advised of this in the daily briefing. Although it is a moderate trip a good level of fitness is required and you should feel confident cycling for 8 days in sometimes humid conditions (especially in April). As the trip stays at relatively low altitudes (below 3000m) there will be minimal side affects from the altitude and the laid back pace means you can relax as well as immerse yourself in the local culture.
Normal group size and age
Normally 4 to 16, plus leader. Minimum age 18.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
In order to provide a more accurate cycle holiday grading system, where a cycling trip falls between two grades we use an intermediate or split grade, for example Moderate/Challenging. Clearly, conditions may differ from region-to-region or month-to-month and as such the information given on these pages is designed to act as a guide to your cycling holiday only. In all cases you should refer to the Trip Notes for further details.
Cycling: Our cycling holidays come in all shapes and sizes; from gentle self-guided trips in the Veneto, to tackling the High Atlas in Morocco, or exploring the length of Vietnam.
Wildlife: Trips may be wholly wildlife focused, or contain an element of wildlife viewing within a less specific itinerary.
Culture: Let Exodus show you a different side to many of the world's greatest cultural attractions.
