The route are important for successful cycle tour. Many tours operators based outside of Vietnam offer biking tours in here without knowledge about Vietnamese traffic, for example for road bikes in Vietnam. Most tour operators take their clients straight up Highway One. When they know how dangerous and unpleasant cycling on Highway One they may just fly their clients into town and only take them on a ride around the area. No one know about Vietnam better than Vietnamese people . As much as we can, we ride point-to-point and make sure we avoid the worst traffic. We make the cycle together enjoyable cycle routes with favorite destinations.
We found that many cycling tours operator base outside of Vietnam provide mountain bike trip , just riding on asphalt pave road, some route quite busy . In my tours,we have no less than 60% off-road for mountain bike trip in dirt trails, fire road, single track.
All cyclists need a good sense of balance and we try to make right balance between price and service for our tours. We want to provide you very best services ,accommodation for our clients without being expensive.

During the " BikingVietnam.com"
the main meals are breakfast and the evening meal. Thus, breakfast
should be large and substantial (and include cereals). Breakfasts are
usually Western and Vietnamese food like fire rice, noodle soup, with such fare as eggs, ham and toast, though local
alternatives are nearly always available if you prefer. We recommend that
all participants should bring a supply of their favorite cereals as many
of the hotels where we stay don't yet have cereal on offer at breakfast.
For lunch (picnic) you will need to make sandwiches or Sushi in the morning, and take some fruit. We recommend you also bring along some of your favorite energy bars.
Most of our trip are adventure
biking holiday, we usually riding from hotel to hotel and not
moving too far by vehicle . Please understand that Eating local
Vietnamese food as main of food in our tours.
The evening meal will be in a restaurant, we eat dinner together family style, which means sharing a number of delicious dishes, making sure it is an authentic feast worthy of hardworking and hungry cyclists. Beer and other alcoholic beverages are available but are not included in the tour price. We will make sure there are always plenty of carbohydrates and protein on the menu.
Don't forget adequate hydration is as important as a good meal and so you should make sure you carry enough water with you. In some stages there is no where to top up along the way. Follow your guides instructions for each stage. We recommend you use a hydration pack with at least 2l capacity, rather than water bottles. The water bottles don't carry as much water, plus it will get warm during the day, they are not as hygienic and the water bottle cage can get in the way when you may have to carry your bike.
Most meals are included and since so many meals we serve feature local cuisines, we do our best to deliver the real thing. A spread of spring rolls, curries, grills, dumplings, hot and sour soups, stir-fries and delicious salads at the end of the day is an important ingredient in a great cycle tour in Asia. Rice is the staple at every meal, although you will also try many noodle dishes.
