This trip covers quite some distance, with cycling for up to 60 kilometres a day on varied terrain with a few hills. In reality you only require a reasonable level of fitness to participate.
There’s the possibility of a few hiccups along the way – a puncture here and there – but there’s no doubt this is an incredibly rewarding adventure.
You'll be spending your nights in hotels all the way, ranging from comfortable to basic level, but they'll always be authentic and a great opportunity to interact with the locals and fellow travellers.
The weather in this region can be varied depending on the season. Be prepared to get sweaty and for the occasional rainstorm, which may require a change of plans.

My friend and I loved the experience of traveling with Intrepid! I had never done a group trip before, and with Intrepid we felt like we were traveling with friends rather than on a commercial tour. We were taken to local restaurants and cycled on small roads we never would have been able to find on our own. It was truly a once-in-a-lifetime trip!
