This trip is classified road and graded B. It is suitable for beginners, but it does have some sections off-road, so you should be comfortable on a bike. The riding is generally undemanding and on a mixture of quiet minor roads and dirt roads. As we are passing through rural communities the roads are quiet with very little traffic.
There is one long but gradual climb on the first cycling day of the trip. There is a 2 km section on day 2 which is on a rough forestry road. On day 7 there is a 10 km section on a narrow path along a river which can be overgrown in summer and in parts requires getting off the bike and walking.
Please note that wearing a cycling helmet is compulsory on this trip. Please see the introductory pages of the Cycling Brochure for more important information on classification and grading. If you have any queries about the difficulty of the trip please do not hesitate to call us.
Normal group size and age
Normally 4 to 16, plus cycling leader and driver. 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.
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.
For those clients who wish to travel with a group of other solo/single travellers, on certain trips we have set aside departure dates that are specifically recommended for clients booking individually. Solo departures are aimed at taking away that concern that you may be the only solo traveller when you arrive overseas. Look out for the solo departures (marked with a grey icon's') by checking the notes in the dates and prices table.
However, please note that we inform any couples, or friends travelling together, who enquire about these dates that the trip is recommended for solos, but we do not refuse bookings from non-solo travellers, and we are therefore not able to guarantee that a solo departure will be exclusively made up of solo travellers.
