Biking in Bhutan can be a wonderful experience. You will be biking through pristine environment with clean fresh air and breath-taking scenery of dramatic ranges. For experienced bikers their entire tour duration in Bhutan on a bike can be fun. Instead of zooming past places in a car, a slow ride on a bike will give them more opportunity to talk with people and visit places along their route. Biking at its very best can be enjoyed by first timers as well as veteran bikers too.
Most of the biking routes in Bhutan especially on the main highways are moderate rides for experienced bikers. Except for a few roads along Thimphu, Paro, Phuntsholing and Punakha, most of our roads have very light traffic.
Most people enjoy riding on the tarmac while few take to the dirt tracks. We have a team of experienced biking guides and bike mechanics. On all our biking tours we have a biking guide leading the ride and a bike mechanic following closely behind in a pickup truck.
For most people, riding on the left hand side for few hours will be difficult initially. Bikers have the choice to ride the whole day or load their bike in a pickup truck and take a ride in their car/bus. Most of the time experienced bikers bring their own biking gears like biking shorts, goggles, gloves, helmets, shoes and peddles.
You can even combine your cultural tour with few days of biking or just experience biking by riding around the few towns in Bhutan.
Riders should have an adequate level of fitness and stamina and be experienced enough in the art of biking.
