Self-Guided Bike Tours With Van Support in India
Cycling at your own pace and assimilating a destination at your own time can be highly gratifying. Be your own guide, with our full support! Our Self Guided Cycling Holidays provide you the well-researched routes, back up vehicle infrastructure, bike with helmet and remote guidance to ensure that you unearth the destination with flexibility and freedom. These tours are recommended for people who have had significant experience touring on bicycles and are good with bicycle mechanics and basic repairs. So, while in our Self-guided trips a support vehicle accompanies you throughout the day’s cycling, the drivers are not trained to be bike mechanics. Also while our bikes are in excellent condition and well maintained, any repairs or unexpected breakdowns are expected to be handled by the rider. We provide you with adequate spares & tools, detailed GPS maps and complete navigation assistance to ensure your safety and orientation to this end. More so, throughout your trip, we are only a phone call away for emergencies and queries. Select any existing itinerary and turn it into a self-guided trip, or design your own adventure.
Please Note that the pricing for self-guided bike tours is a bit different compared to guided bike tour, however, the overall flow of the trip remains same. You can also choose to have your own budget, duration and region for a self-guided tour. Please email us with your requirements for the same.

– All hotels, as mentioned in the tour details

Looking for more freedom?
If you are looking for more freedom and plan to take it as it comes during the tour then our bike-on-rent offer is a perfect fit. Here you can hire a hybrid bike fitted with panniers at USD 30 per day. Your package includes spare parts and all required tools. We understand what it takes to lead your own tour. The bikes can be hired in different parts of India: Bangalore, Kochi and Udaipur.
Thank you so much for organising our 5 day ‘self guided’ trip from Udaipur to Jodphur. It was such a relaxing way to enjoy the sights of rural India receiving countless waves and greetings along the way We were impressed by the quality of the bikes and the mostly excellent road surfaces making the cycling a pleasure. Our driver followed a short distance behind us and was always there when we needed him (punctures, snacks, directions). We arrived at the hotels most days by 2:30 p.m giving us time to enjoy any near by sites (forts, temples) and/or just relax by the pool enjoying the surroundings. Our only regret was that the trip was too short, so we will be back soon!
