Whizz Through A Bhutanese Pine Forest

Daytrippers

Note that we said whizz rather than pedal… as there are now two freewheel rides through the Bhutan. You can start in Chele-la and whizz into Paru or the Haa Valley. The valley was closed to tourists until 2002 so you pretty much have the place to yourself.

Tourers

This three-day ride takes you from the wilds of Bushman Kloof Wilderness Reserve, through the lush Cape Floral Kingdom to the picturesque Cape West Coast. When you’re not in the saddle you can go for a stroll on the beach, stop and smell the flowers or sample some of the local vintages.

Zoom Through The Clouds Of Bolivia

Adrenalin addicts

Starting at 15,400 feet, this 40-mile trail winds around sheer cliff faces, through the clouds and into the rainforest. This route that drops into a single-lane road isn’t for the faint hearted. The locals call it El Camino de la Muerte (The Death Road), yet still 25,000 mountain bikers each year choose to ride it. A professional guide is essential for this.
