Riding a bicycle through Vietnam is one of the best ways to see the country.   You can get a real feel of the scenery you’re looking at, the fragrances of the flowers and trees, and the people you will meet along the way.

You can bring your own ride, rent one that will get you through the day or contact a tour organizer that will provide with a quality bike and the support you will need for a tour of the whole country.  Bicycle tour organizers in Vietnam can provide bikes for all skill levels, rider sizes and terrain to be negotiated.  Family tours can be outfitted providing a comfortable tour for children.

You can engage the services of a competent guide through a Vietnam bicycle tour company or get a trusted referral for a private guide.  Having a support vehicle and staff will depend upon your budget, time and confidence level.  Bicycles are a standard mode of transportation in Vietnam, so repairs are easily made by locals on all touring bikes except for the most exotic.  The need for support will be influenced by not only your budget, but your time schedule.  Taking a break of a day or two along your route to get repairs done or recharge your body’s batteries will take up time that you have not allotted for.  The truly adventurous can take on a complete tour of the country on their own with proper preparation and equipment.

The terrain of Vietnam can very greatly.  The roads along the coastline are fairly level with a few mountainous places – like the Hai Van Pass (496m) between Hue and Danang.  If you decide to enjoy the great scenery offered by the Central Highlands be prepared for some long pulls uphill.  Of course, the downhills will be a great joy.  Coastline road Vietnam National Highway 1A provides a route from north to south that carries a lot of traffic – pedestrians to large trucks – and are  dangerous for even the most skilled rider.

Meals and accommodations are available in all parts of Vietnam except for the most remote.  You may have to plan on a 100 -150 KM day if you venture in the the more mountainous regions.  Riding at night is a “no-no”.  A good measure of a “safe” restaurant is whether or not it has a cement or tile floor.  Street food in larger cities is exempt from this advice.  If you see the food is well cooked you’re usually safe.  Being a skilled negotiator will save you a bit of money along the way.

Not matter your skill level, budget and time available, taking a Vietnam bicycle tour will be one of the most rewarding experiences you can plan on your trip to Vietnam.  A little planning will be well worth your time and money.  Enjoy your Vietnam Bicycle Tour!
