Cycle Vietnam

Hey, just wondering how everyone's prep has been going for this trip? Not long now :-)

Hello fellow travellers.  I am looking forward to meeting you all shortly.  I shall be arriving a day early, travelling from Manchester.  Is anyone else doing similar?  As for prep - this softy cyclist has been concentrating on keeping warm rather than keeping fit over the past few months.  I can't help but notice that HCMC is over 30 degrees hotter than the UK.  We can't prepare for that.

Yup, the weather here has somewhat hampered training but I'm sure it will be as easy and pleasant as most of the reviewers reckon...Temperature wise though, coming from -3 today into 30+ will certainly be a culture shock. Jon, getting yourself in a sauna might give you a rough clue as to what you'll face but the guides will look after us with plenty of pit stops for water and food.

I'm lucky enough to be arriving on 2nd April into Saigon.  Was planning to pedal the Mekong but have gone for easy option of 4 days on an island (Phu Quoc)...Hoping to meet everyone at airport as i'll be flying into Saigon Sunday morning. jen


Firstly I am aware you're away as I send this but hopefully you will see it on your return.

Hope you don't mind me asking, am looking at the appropriate Insurance to cover me for an actual Cycle tour and wondered who you had used?!

A lot of companies offer Insurance which can include optional adventurous activities but as we are actually on a Cycling tour holiday (pure biking) some do not cover and want to have to choosen the correct Insurance.

Any pointers would be appreciated. Hoping you also had an amazing trip?!

Thank you :)
