About India on Bicycle

Family Friendly Cycling Holidays

First thing first, we are not a 'Cycle Racing' or 'Everest Trekking' company but a Cycling, Walking and Multi-Sport Holidays company where the emphasis is as much on activity as on comfort, safety and enjoyment of our guests.

We offer a wide selection of active holidays in India, Nepal and Bhutan for people of all ages and ability. Indeed, our active tours truly reflect the people behind this venture, who share an intense spirit of travel and passion for outdoors.

Our cycling holidays are suitable for individuals, families and groups. SELECT A TOUR FROM OUR LIST OR WRITE TO US FOR A CUSTOM FAMILY CYCLING TRIP. We also offer a wide range of special interest activities with our bike tours - hiking, wildlife, horse riding, etc - that will make your holiday with your children a truly memorable one.
