    Cycle Kerala and Tropical India

    An ideal way of seeing as much of India in two weeks. Cycling is the perfect way to get about and experience the diversity of culture, scenery, wildlife, people and food that India has to offer. Every day was different and had something new to offer, memories to add to and new experiences to enjoy.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Getting to the top of the climb at Ooty even though I walked it from the fourth bend! For the ones that cycled the whole way up it was an even bigger achievement. Then the Western Ghats descent in the afternoon (after a well deserved refreshment), exhilarating, challenging because of the concentration needed to avoid all the potholes accompanied by the stunning scenery of the tea plantations and forests. An amazing day!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Vishnu was an exceptional leader. Everything was meticulously organised. Nothing was too much trouble (for example sending one of the support vans back to our previous hotel when I realised I had forgotten my camera battery). He made himself available for everyone on the free days and during the evenings for the meals that weren't included. The other boys in the support group were just as good, Vippy (our front marker for the most), Shane, our driver, always on hand with bottles of water, energy boosting snacks.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Bring an open mind - India, in places is mad, traffic is bonkers but the rewards far outweigh anything you may possibly be nervous about. The people, without exception, are genuinely interested in talking to you and are immensely proud that you have chosen to visit their country. The variety of food will amaze, the scenery will leave you speechless, the wildlife will make you laugh, in particular the cheeky monkeys, and the culture will fill you with awe and happiness. The cycling on the whole (with the exception of the Ooty climb) is fine for someone with an average level of fitness. You need to be super fit to get up Ooty (on a bike) but I walked most of it and still got up in just over 2 and a half hours, and enjoyed it immensely. There's always the support van too, a choice which carries no shame - the climb is a tough ask.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    It's well worth paying the extra and going on the premium date, especially if you are worried about hygiene standards. On that note, bring plenty of hand gel and use it religiously! There is plenty of bottled water available so no need to drink the tap water (avoid ice in drinks and washed salad). The hotels are of an excellent standard and a great way of pampering yourself after a long day cycling! Most have pools and Spa treatments. I can recommend the Ayurvedic full body massage. Finally, if you are hesitating about booking the trip, go for it, you will not regret it!
