Sri Lanka - Classic
Negombo - Udawalawe - Belihuloya - Galle
Sri Lanka is a fantastic cycling destination, with well-surfaced roads and diverse, beautiful natural surroundings. From ancient religious and cultural sites to rain forests, national parks, mountains, wildlife and stunning coastline, there is so much to enjoy and no better way to explore than by bicycle. For centuries adventurers and traders have been drawn to this jewel in the Indian Ocean. The island has been inspiration to many adventurers from Marco Polo to Paul Theroux, renowned for a rich variety of terrain and wild life within a small land space. Species native to the island include monkeys, crocodiles elephants leopards and exotic peacocks. Moving forwards from a 30-year civil war which ended in 2009, Sri Lanka is fast becoming a popular cycling holiday destination.
The redspokes Sri Lanka Classic bicycle tour begins in West coast Negombo with beaches and sea views. We travel through ancient capital city Kurunegala, surrounded by imposing mythological 'animal rocks' and on to the extraordinary Sigiriya fortress with its series of moats, ramparts and water gardens. We explore the cultural triangle, the ‘King's Land’ of the ancient Sinhalese by bicycle, discovering medieval ruins and sacred temples. Our cycling tour continues on into the highlands through cloud forest and hill stations arriving at Udawalawe National Park.
We ride on to reach the southern tip of Sri Lanka, arriving at Mirissa, a coastal resort and fishing port with idyllic palm fringed beach. After making a stop in historic Galle, you will be transferred back to Negombo where the tour ends.
