Two-wheel tour: Cycle your way through Vietnam and Sri Lanka

MODERN road cycling tours have come to Vietnam and Sri Lanka in the form of E-bikes. 

They have become popular with commuters in Europe and North America, and now are an appealing option for cycling holidays.

If you have less experience, lower fitness, are recovering from injury or with less confidence in your cycling abilities, you can still enjoy trips and destinations without worrying about being able to keep up. Sounds good!

E-bikes are also a great way for cycling enthusiasts to encourage a spouse, family member, or friend who doesn't ride to join a tour with them.

SpiceRoads are offering the E-bike option for their tours of Vietnam and Sri Lanka. SpiceRoads managing director Daniel Moylan said, "The e-bike movement is well underway, and we're excited to be one of the first tour operators in Asia to provide e-bikes to our clients.

"At SpiceRoads we believe that cycle travel provides a more authentic, sustainable, and memorable travel experience for our customers and the communities they travel to and interact with. E-bikes allow us to be more inclusive of who is able to join our tours and see the world with us, and we're very proud of that."

The E-bikes used in Sri Lanka are SCOTT Cross-E Sub 20 bikes, while select Vietnam tours feature Giant Explore E+ bikes.

Both models of E-bike use "pedal assist" technology, which engages the bike's motor once the rider begins to pedal. The more the rider pedals, the more the motor is activated, making e-bikes great for tackling climbs or comfortably cruising at speed.

The E-bikes can be hired per tour as an alternative to standard mountain, road, or carbon bike hire.

SpiceRoads leads over 10,000 passengers per year on active cycling adventures in 32 destinations worldwide. The company offer cycling tours to suit every type of cyclist, from road enthusiasts, to leisure cyclists, to day trippers, to mountain bikers.
