Update from Hennie: Pindaya, Myanmar, area of the Danu Tribe

January 22, 2015

Today was an awesome day and reminded me again of how I love to bike! It was cool in the morning and then began to warm up. We're staying in a nice hotel, all cabins built with bamboo. The floor is made of weaved bamboo, the walls everything. This vacation is not for someone who wants to sleep in every morning! We have breakfast at 6 and are on the bike at 7 am. We biked about 62 km today with a tough 6 km climb. We stop often for tea, snacks, soup (cost 50 cents) etc. The soil here is red/ocre, reminiscent of Arizona, but with a different landscape of course. It is mostly farm land and is the plowing season. Once the farmers used cattle for this and some still do!

One of many pagodas along the way.
Today for the first time I used my Go Pro camera. I think I'm going to give it to the guide after I have down loaded all the pictures after the trip. He will love it and had never seen one. He tells stories of how difficult it is for him to run a company in this military government!

Another reminder of the freedom we have.

We're going to visit the Pindaya cave now.

Tripsite Traveler: Bikes, Tulips, Canals and Windmills

Liz Ling • Sep 13, 2019

We recently caught up with Tripsite Traveler, Liz Ling, who had a blast on our 8 Day Tulip Tour aboard the Quo Vadis. Along the way, she snapped some lovely photos from the bike path. Heres what Liz had to say about her trip: Adventure and being active is what we love, especially when traveling. I work in a busy trauma hospital as an anesthesiologist, so vacation time is precious and trips are booked carefully. Read More


Five New Bike Tours That Should Be On Your Radar

Jehiel • Apr 30, 2019

Don't get us wrong, we could bike through tulip fields and sample creamy Dutch cheese with no complaints (obviously), but sometimes we crave something a bit different. Picture this: Exploring the Galapagos by bike & boat and getting to see the infamous Blue-Footed Booby or learning about World World II from the perspective of the Dutch pedalling by battlefields and bunkers. Maybe you don't have to say goodbye to tulips and cheese after all! We aren't trying to reinvent the wheel. Read More


Cycling Umbria: A Gastronomy Bike Tour

Kathryn Grunder • Feb 6, 2019 • 3

After the bustle of Rome, Umbria was a romantic movie set. Lesley and I were charmed to see children playing in Spello’s piazza fountain, their mothers sitting nearby chatting, and old men soaking up the sun. We went through an impressive stone archway and began our 2 km walk uphill to our lodgings. Jasmine framed the doorways and covered the ancient stone walls, filling the air around us with its scent.
