Colourful Cycling Tours

Fun, relaxed cycling holidays in south-east Asia and China

Painted Roads specialises in relaxed, fun, small group guided cycling holidays in a variety of destinations throughout Asia. As well as sharing with you our love of Thailand, Vietnam and Laos we also have an in-depth knowledge of some less-well known destinations so we hope you will also join us on one of our unforgettable tours of Yunnan, Guizhou and Guanxi in China, and Taiwan, or Sri-Lanka.

With western tour leaders and local guides our philosophy is based around offering an intimate exploration of personally crafted tours through stunning rural locales.  Our cycling tours include comfortable accommodation, delicious local cuisine, a support vehicle and minimal transfers. We want your riding holiday with us to be a truly memorable experience for all the right reasons so we place as much emphasis on post-cycling relaxation, convivial company, and an apres-ride beer in the warm, setting sun as the biking itself.

Our clients say...

This was my second tour with Painted Roads and I was certainly not disappointed. Having come to expect a real focus on delighting the customer, Walks and his crew went out of their way to ensure our every desire was catered for. From the pre-tour communications to the on-tour briefings and support by David and the local guide Nat, nothing was left to chance, and we could just immerse ourselves in the local culture and scenery while riding. While this tour is long and hot, there were plenty of stops for refreshments and the cold beer at the end of the day made the whole ride worth it. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys good company, good food and accommodation and of course some great cycling. Well done David Walker. See you on another tour soon.

David Dowling on Thailand - South

A wonderful trip and a fantastic way to get a glimpse into the lives of the local peoples whilst enjoying great cycling amongst the most stunning scenery imaginable. Expertly run by David whose inexhaustible supply of good humour, energy and beer, in conjunction with his local team, meant even the toughest days were superb fun.

Phil H on Vietnam - Northeast

The Tri-nations tour exceeded my expectations in all areas. The scenery was specular, like something out of a movie. As we moved from country to country through some very remote villages the locals and children all gave us a wave with a smile on their faces. I feel I have seen the country, not just the tourist hotspots. This trip was my first experience cycling mountains and I was apprehensive at first and fully prepared to use the support vehicle. I gave it my best shot and with the encouragement of David and his team I have come away with a sense of achievement, tackling far more mountain passes than I ever expected to on the trip. David is an excellent tour leader and uses excellent local guides and drivers who make you feel welcome in their country and help to give an insight to the local culture and cuisine. Excellent food, splendid company and awesome riding.
