Our Mission:

to enrich the life of travellers through experiencing the world by bike

About Us

Founded in 2010 during a 100km bumpy ride in India, Art of Bicycle Trips specialize in crafting unique cycling, and active journeys to India and Asia-at-Large. Each day is crafted with utmost care so that you are well rested; get a drift of local culture and cuisine and enjoy the splendid trails at your own pace.

With our core focus on cycling, we create and deliver exceptional cycling experiences across Asia. We work with some of the finest local specialists based in your tour region as co-creators from itinerary designing to on-ground operations so that you experience the destination from a local perspective. We’re all about small and local details.

Our story

Our journey started when three of us left one morning for a 100km ride to Cauvery Fishing Camp (off Bangalore), we came back surprised, out of our comfort zones, enthralled by the outdoors and moved by the simple living in the countryside. We had ridden out of the city for about 60km and were sitting under a statue of Mahatma Gandhi discussing the ride till then. We realized for some bicycle is a utility, for others it is a revelation of human potential and endurance, and for many more it is a new and unique experience – a perfect way to discover the heart of the country.

Our travel philosophy

Art of Bicycle Trips designs unique cycling tours, exploring the culture, historic sites, cuisine, architecture, ethnic diversity, scenic beauty, remote villages and nuances of daily life of local regions.

With no circumference to hinder the outlook, bicycling opens up a whole new world of adventure and freedom, and gives new perspective. It reduces the barriers between you, the land and its people and gives more time to savour your surroundings and immerse yourself in the life of a region.
