Crafted with love, care and decades of experience, our cycle tours take you across breathtaking backwaters, lush green meadows onto pristine beaches via the land of bollywood along with exquisite medieval architecture. Our rides are designed to give you an unique experience of India where you get off the beaten path and tourists spots, interact with people who call these lands their home, experience their unique way of life and taste a meal prepared at home, exclusively for your taste buds.
We enjoyed the cycle tour with you very much. The bicycles were a very good quality and you provided very good support throughout the week. The places we visited along the way were interesting - I particularly liked cycling through the tea plantations and the overnight boat trip. We are a little bit busy at the moment and haven’t even looked at all the video yet. We will try to edit it in the next week or two and send you a clip.
"I’d like to thank you for the effort that you put in to make the cycling tour happen. Your patience and kindness has left an indelible mark on us, as has our time in India. We had a wonderful experience. Everyday brought something for us to enjoy."
"Just want to say how much I appreciated your joint efforts in making our cycling tours in India so successful. I really have appreciated the opportunity to get some understanding of your cultures, to have been able to see so many wonderful sights, and most of all, to have been able to sample so many of your fabulous foods. A great adventure for us, and in many ways I'm quite sad that it's over."
“Josey, you and Frank are amazing to cycle with, and I had a fantastic time. I not only got better at cycling but was also able to try some amazing cuisine and to see fantastic site. I thank you for your amazing hospitality, food and cooking classes.”
“Its been a wonderful experience bicycling Kerala under your guidance. I still cannot imagine that I managed to cycle some 350km with over 5000mtr climbing (and down again!) in 5 days. But what a trip it has been through all these different environments: flat, mountainous, rainforest, plantations, small towns, elephants, monkeys and the list goes on and on. A truly unique way to visit the region. And, then of course the food! Better every day, with the best food at last prepared by Lisa. Thanks as well for your hospitality.”
“I want to thank you a million times for most wonderful biking trip I’ve ever made. I liked it because of the beautiful scenery, the very welcoming places tostay, the delicious food, the strength of the cycling (I like it hard ☺) and of course the way you all manage it. It was always nice to see you and the white car after a harsh climb, to show us the way or to provide us with water and snacks. Thank you again and good luck.”
“A trip in Kerala by bike. Did not know what to expect, but after 15 days 1370km and 5300 mtr of heights I can. It was great!! The environment, your hospitality, the lovely Indian people, the culture we saw from the point of view of the bicycle. I can say, my first introduction with India, Kerala was/is one I will not forget and it tasted more. It felt good, thank you Josey. I’m not going to say good bye because I’m sure we will meet again.”

"Thank you very much for guiding Cath and I through an excellent trip through Kerala- we had a fantastic time! We are constantly talking about the trip and what a good time we had. A week ago we were sitting having dinner in Cochin and the temp was 22 degree Celsius. Today our house and garden are under snow and the Temp is -2 degree Celsius. We still have not loaded the photos on the computer but will probably do this in the next week. When we do I will send selected high-lights. Thank you again for organizing a really perfect holiday. Love to the family. Chocks Away!"
