Average daily distance: 50km (31 miles)
No. of days cycling: 11
Vehicle support: 100%.
Terrain and route: mostly good roads but with some broken tarmac and unsurfaced sections. Routes follow a mixture of back roads and a few main roads, but Burma lacks the heavy traffic of other Asian countries. Burma is mountainous and there are a few tough climbs and long downhills in the first week, but vehicle support is always available.
The second week is generally flatter between Mandalay and Bagan, except for the day to Mt Popa.
Conditions will be hot and humid, but rests and water are on hand.
13 nights standard hotels, all en suite.
14 breakfasts included.
This trip is classified road and graded B. Please see the introductory pages of the Cycling holidays brochure for more important information on classification and grading.

Normal group size and age
Normally 6 to 18, plus local leaders. Minimum age 16.
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.
Most people who enjoy a weekend riding on either trails or roads at home will enjoy a B-grade trip. You need to be in good health and reasonably fit. Ideal for occasional cyclists, or as a more relaxed trip for fitter riders. B-grade off-road trips require no previous experience. Distances on road trips rarely exceed 70 kms (43 miles) per day.
Exodus is always looking to improve our current itineraries and to offer something different. With many new trips this year, there is something unique and different to try every year.
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.
Culture: Let Exodus show you a different side to many of the world's greatest cultural attractions.
