Costa Rica Traverse

The trip was an amazing experience. As expected it was physically tough but worth every drop of sweat and mud (no blood fortunately). For me personally, I found the heat hard to adjust to. I expected us to benefit from the shade of the rainforest more than we did and I guess going from a Scottish winter to an equatorial country didn't help. Having said that it didn't detract from my enjoyment, just made it harder work. We were also lucky because all 13 of us got on very well and it was a good mix of people. A special mention has to go to the guides and Danny in particular. I remember when we did the Cycling in the Andes that the guides were good but Danny was excellent. As well as being extraordinarily fit and knowledgeable about adventure stuff he was passionate about Costa Rica, it's environment and future. He had a great sense of humour and as if all that weren't enough he and his team were superb cooks. Although this wasn't everyone's idea of a relaxing holiday I came home envigorated and motivated with stacks of energy - apart from having to negotiate Terminal 5 on it's second day of chaos! I've already been on your website looking for the next potential challenge, if only work didn't get in the way.

Cycling Routes of the World

Sydney : Cycling Routes of the World

Wednesday Feb 27, 2013 06:00 PM

What better way to experience a world of adventure than from handle bar level!

Cycling adventures enable you to explore areas travellers don’t normally get access to, and you do it all at a slow pace so you can take everything in. With the wind in your hair and the sun on your back you can perfectly combine activity with discovery. Join World Expeditions resident cyclist Philip Wyndham as he recalls some of his cycling adventures and our adventures through Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, China, India, Peru, Europe and Australia as well as showing you how you can join us on these rewarding adventures.

World Expeditions began organizing cycling holidays in India in 1978, when we first recognised that cycling was the perfect means to explore remote villages a world away from the highways. Today, we operate a range of cycling holidays to suit all levels of cycling ability. From fully supported short cycling interludes to more challenging cross country traverses. Come and see for yourself how you can join us on one of these great adventures.

SPECIAL GUEST: Adventure cyclist Dave Turner will be attending the night to speak about the Lhasa to Kathmandu Cycle Expedition he will be leading for World Expeditions in May 2013. You’ll also have the opportunity to be enthralled by stunning images and videos as well as intriguing stories of Dave’s own adventures on the search for the magical Himalayan kingdom of Shambhala. There is no better person to lead this expedition than Dave who himself has spent over a year searching the Himalaya for the mystical Shambhala, believed to be hidden in the north Himalayas and rumoured to be protected by winged lions, gods & demonesses!
