Cycling in Sri Lanka

Hello to anyone else who is doing this trip. Judy

Did this trip in 2014 and the organisation was great.The guides were great and the whole thing ran well.Trust them and enjoy the ride.Monkeys can be a problem at hotel in Kandy in terms of wanting your day pack[food] or looking for a room not locked.They are somewhat harmless but cagy!!!Food was good and hotels comfortable.Always a wedding reception on in hotels.Can be pretty hot at times and some roads a little rough but mostly okay but it is backroads.Guide suggested a kitty which was really beneficial in regards to incidental payments and the like.Took a lot of the stress out of the trip and I felt it was money well spent.Strangest stay was at the Planters Club overnight Very formal and I had a curry and condiments[could of fed the masses]I for the first time didnt train at all and combined with a bit of a virus I had before arriving made life difficult for me on the first few days .I was well looked after and enjoyed the remainder of the cycling.I am going to Burma with exodus this October and have made the effort to be ride fit.You go at your own pace anyway so there is no pressure in that regard.I loved it and am cosidering doing it again.
