It's game on here in the Kyrgyz Republic after some detailed planning over a local brew. On our first day's ride - the hottest of the trip, the team kept their cool under huge water spouts and devouring huge watermelons. Off into the mountains today to cooler air and a taste of rural Kyrgyzstan. Follow this tour.
After biking away from the sugar came centre of Labasa, today's challenge was shopping in Savusavu for Kevin, Michael, Jeff and Hilary - including solving the riddles of how to ride with a tray of eggs for 60km, what is sevusevu and do kids prefer pickles or lollies? Lucky they had the happiest coffee in the Pacific to fuel them!

We have a new FAMILY Cycle Tour... to the Fiji Islands!
Earlier this year - two very adventurous families joined us in putting our Fiji Islands Cycle Tour to test as a Family Cycle Tour. Our Fiji Islands Family Tour includes all that makes our regular tour special plus the added spark that comes from traveling with children in a country where everyone just loves kids! Picture subsistence villages, rain-forested mountains and quiet roads winding around a coastline of an unbelievably clear blue ocean edged with swaying coconut palms. This is the Fiji we are heading for! Join us in 2016.
