Looking for somewhere new to ride your gravel bike? How about 2000km and 24000m through the remote back country of Vietnam and Laos? Join us for a mixed surface gravel-road odyssey from Hanoi to Vientiane via Luang Prabang. Then ride back from Champaasak to Hoi An. Really.
What we love most about riding in central Vietnam is the diversity. From Danang on the eastern coast it’s only about 70km inland as the crow flies to the Lao border. But in that narrow strip you have the beach, the rice fields, and the mountains—three iconic Vietnamese landscapes that we traverse in the course of a single ride.
At Velo Vietnam, co-founders Ashley and David tailor bespoke rides for every group, building routes to suite your riding ambitions.
We’ve been riding the mountainous roads of the north since the 90s, and while many parts of Vietnam have changed beyond recognition, the north has remained more or less the same, a remote frontier region of hill peoples and wild vistas.
