At Escape Adventures we frequently get asked for advice on how to train for our cycling tours. We understand that it’s hard to train for a ride you know very little about. That’s why we have prepared this 10 week training program specifically for our Kenya and Tanzania cycle tour. We’re confident that following this plan will prepare someone with an existing moderate level of fitness to comfortably enjoy Escape Adventure’s 16 day Kenya & Tanzania cycle tour.
Escape Adventures Kenya and Tanzania cycle tour is our most popular tour. It’s easy to see why, with so much adventure packed into 16 days in East Africa… take me there now! Heading out into the wilderness is going to be so much fun... but the novelty will soon wear off if I’m struggling and exhausted. I haven’t actually been riding my bike recently, so in order to make the most of my cycle tour I had better do some preparation.
If you have been considering doing an Escape Adventures cycle tour, but are unsure if our tours are for you, then Cambodia is the perfect place to start. This is a great Escape Adventures introduction to cycle touring. It showcases our style of travel and the local experiences we relish giving our bikers, while having slightly shorter distances per day and flatter terrain compared to some of our other tours. If you’re still not sure about joining the tour because you are worried you might not be fit enough or an experienced cyclist, we’re here to help with our carefully crafted 10 week training program. First we’re going to discuss some ways to prepare for traveling in Cambodia, then we’ll discuss training for Cambodia.
Rabies is a very serious topic. We often get asked by bikers who are preparing to come on a cycle tour with Escape Adventures if they should be immunised for rabies. It’s not really for us to say if you should or shouldn’t… but we can offer you some information and facts. Here are our responses to the most frequently asked questions we get about rabies.
If you are thinking about doing multi-day biking adventures it is really important to be absolutely comfortable on your bike so you can enjoy your experience. At Escape Adventures it’s part of our job to help people be as comfortable on the bike as possible.
