TDA Global Cycling
Riders will head out by boat past the city’s vibrant river life – fishing boats, busy docks and ocean going freighters. Once back on dry land they will head through rubber plantations and fields of sugarcane before climbing up into the hills surrounding Cat Tien National Park, home to almost 400 species of birds. The route continues on small back roads to the former French Hill Station of Dalat where riders can enjoy the cooler air and the city’s famous strawberries. The next day starts with a challenging climb but finishes with a 30 km downhill past waterfalls, sheer cliffs, gorges and streams.After a well-earned rest day in the beach town of Nha Trang, riders will head north along Vietnam’s stunning coast, passing traditional fishing villages, oyster beds, salt farms and sand dunes. The views are absolutely gorgeous. Stop and hike to a lighthouse or a giant Buddha. Eat fresh lobster in a floating restaurant. The road snakes through tiny villages and past emerald rice paddies.The ancient trading port of Hoi An marks the next rest day where riders can explore the city’s beguiling old town. The last riding day for this section takes the cyclists past endless beach resorts and casinos and then through modern Danang, the ‘City of Bridges’. After one last climb over the Hai Van (Sea Cloud) Pass, the route meanders along back roads, skirting a vast salt and fresh water lagoon before ending in Hue, Vietnam’s old imperial capital.
