BIKE YUNNAN ADVENTURES
We aim to show regular travellers the sights of China by bicycle. Enjoy this beautiful part of China by bike on small side roads “off the beaten track” and see firsthand the magnificent scenery and meet local villagers and experience something special which you will not see from inside a bus or car. We cater for cyclists of all standards from beginners to advanced riders.
Cycling is a great way to see a country and there are many reasons people cycle. Here are a few of them:
Cycling is the perfect way to see a place. Too often in a bus or car you travel too quickly to fully appreciate a new area and miss out on the small beauties which surround you. On a bike you can stop and really appreciate your surroundings and take in what you see around you. You can take the time to experience other people and their cultures. Often cyclists are an attraction in the country areas and locals stop and chat with you. These are the personal interactions which really make a trip memorable.
Spend time with family and friends. Too often in our busy lives we do not spend enough time with special friends or family. When you cycle you spend memorable time together as you chat along the way.
For a sense of adventure and achievement. For many novice cyclists, the challenge can seem to be “How to cover the distance and reach the destination”. They may question “Can I really do this” or “Am I crazy to do this” only to be surprised at how capable they really are.
To remember what is important in life and regain perspective. In today’s modern society people often feel trapped in their day to day existence. Cycling removes them from these daily pressures and focuses them on the simpler pleasures of cycling. On multi day tours or longer, the carefree miles of cycling give you the opportunity to think, reflect and ponder. It’s not uncommon for a cyclist to find the tour a life changing experience.
To have fun. Visit Yunnan China, meet new, exotic and interesting folks, share the adventure with friends/family, and experience a sense of achievement which all makes the tour an unforgettable experience.
Yunnan is the most Southwestern province of the People's Republic of China bordered by the provinces of Tibet, Sichuan, Guangxi, and Guizhou. Because Yunnan enjoys a mild climate, pristine lakes, beautiful mountains, and six major rivers that carve their way through this magnificent landscape, it is one of the most beautiful places in the world to experience from a bicycle. Come explore the rural countryside with local, experienced guides, who will lead you through quaint villages where colorful open markets flourish. You can interact with, and learn about, the culture of 26 different ethnic groups who live in Yunnan. If you only have time to visit one province in China, most travel guides recommend that Yunnan should be at the top of your list.
