Great locations and a great team make for a great ride
As a group, we take a week every year to ride in great places Thailand, Japan and now our second ride with Velo Viet Nam in the North of Viet Nam, it takes a great team to make it a truly great riding experience which Velo Viet Nam delivered. The North of Viet Nam is a great place to ride delivering tough hills, mad descents and long sweeping undulations. We cranked out over 600kms and climbed almost 8000m in 6 wonderful days, with Sapa to Mu Cang Chai the stand out cycle. Our guides David and Dale were knowledgeable and fun to ride with and they drew the best out of each ride over many tough stages. With Nam providing motorcycle support we were never short of water, snacks, and an encouraging word. Mr Na our driver ferried us and all our kit, with a smile at the end of a long day. As an experienced bike tourist, I cannot recommend Velo Vietnam more highly for those who want a rewarding riding experience with great people.
5 of us, guided by Dave, completed an 800km cycle ride over 6 days from Lao Cai in the north of Vietnam via Sapa and back to Hanoi. There were some challenging climbs and some tremendous decents as we cycled through beautiful valleys and spectacular mountain scenery, past paddy fields and tea plantations, and meeting some wonderful Vietnamese people and enjoying their superb hospitality along the way. A fantastic experience, great memories, everything was very well organised by David and we were excellently supported by Tung and Ha, we all thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would recommend Velo-Vietnam to anyone thinking of cycling in that part of the world.
Superb Cycling Experience
Our ride was a 6 day 500 mile ride from the very North of Vietnam back to Hanoi. We cycled through some beautiful mountain scenery, there were some great climbs and awesome descents, and above all we met some wonderful Vietnamese people.
The whole trip was superbly organised by David and we were excellently supported so that we were never without anything especially the magic “Choco-Pies!”
I could not recommend Velo-Vietnam enough – thanks for the memories 🙂 Brendan
Enjoyed a truly memorable three-day
Enjoyed a truly memorable three-day training camp with Vélo Vietnam in the Central Highlands.
Amazing routes, fantastic support, beautiful views, and an unforgettable experience.
Not only do David and Ashley clearly love what they do, they also know the best places to ride and stay. We stayed in hill tribe villages, slept in wooden huts (very comfortable, actually) and rode through some of Vietnam’s beautiful landscapes.
If you are planning a cycling trip in Vietnam, look no further.
Road cycling gives us pleasure, inspiration, solace, culture, camaraderie, therapy and adventure
Boy Velo Vietnam delivers on this. 5 days in the saddle, 550km of riding with 6500m of vertical elevation gained, made up of 2 days looping out of Da Nang beach and 3 days heading west into the jungle to teh Lao border. Ashley Carruthers and David Lloyd’s organisation, hospitality, knowledge of the area and themselves and human beings are second to none. All of us on this trip would highly recommend road riding through Vietnam with velovietnam.cc, a magical experience.
Managed by proper cyclists
Our ride was managed by “proper cyclists” and featured amazing scenery, challenging topography, and logistics and support worthy of a pro team. The riding aside, the trip also exposed us to places far off the beaten track. Thanks Ashley and Dave, see you next year.
A first class experience
I just returned from a 5 day training camp organised by Velo Vietnam. Absolute first class experience. Ashley, David and team were outstanding in their planning and execution. I highly recommend them. I (and others from Hong Kong) will definitely be back. Well done to all.
