Cycling Vietnam

If you're going on this trip I'd be pleased to chat! Travelling on my own from the North East of England.


Hi Donna

My husband Peter & I have now booked on this trip. Having done one week easy cycling in France last year, we are trying hard to get fit for this - Am a bit worried how hard and humid it's going to be!! 


Great to hear from you. I didn't think anyone was going to get in touch. I think we will acclimatise. Are you going from Heathrow?




We are going from Heathrow, but couldn't get the same flights as the rest of the trip so will be coming via Bangkok, I think we arrive about an hour before you. 


Dear  Sonia 

It's a shame you're not on the same flight. The trip looks brilliant. The recent hot weather has been good practice and I'm going to take lots of those hydration tablets to put in water. I have no idea who else is on the trip

See you there then!



Rehydration tablets is a good idea.  I see you cycled in Mongolia last year, so if you have any other good tips that would be useful. I have my gel bike seat, and of course padded pants!!  I was told there were 10 on the trip, so it will be interesting to meet everyone there,


Dear Sonia,

Just rung Exodus and there are 13 on the trip now including us... and I'm the oldest! I recommend Vaseline  -  wonderful stuff. Those Endura women's gel pants are fab. Mongolia had extreme weather and we were wild camping so we got filthy. This trip will be a luxury I hope. Where in the UK are you from?

All the best



We are both the wrong side of 50, so no spring chickens!!  I will be shopping for gel pants today. We are from Richmond (Surrey) so have been training round the park, although I still can't make it up the steep bits yet.  




I'm Johnny, I'm on this trip too. Can't wait. Just over a week to go :)

Hello Johnny, great to hear from you. Travelling from Heathrow? Yes only a week or so! Where are you from?
