Take a tour across the beautiful Sri Lanka on two-wheels and experience all of its splendour. A tour designed for experienced riders, which will take you to the best cultural, historical and wildlife attractions within this paradise.

Begin your cycling odyssey from Narammala, just north of the picturesque beaches of Negombo. The tour takes you first to some of the most important locations in terms of Sri Lanka’s long and proud history. Climb the famous rock fortress of King Kashyapa in Sigiriya and explore the ruins of Sri Lanka’s second oldest kingdom located in Polonnaruwa.

Then it’s on to hills. The tour takes you over some testing terrain while rewarding you with some of the most breathtaking scenery you can come across. The hill capital of Kandy is not only a cultural hotspot in the country but it is also a revered city for its significance to Buddhism. Explore this amazing city and mingle with its unique community before heading further up to Nuwara Eliya.

Known as Sri Lanka’s very own slice of England, Nuwara Eliya is filled with vast, green tea estates and colonial architecture. Together with its cool climate and awe-inspiring waterfalls and mountains, Little England will give you countless photo opportunities. You will even walk through Sri Lanka’s highest national park in Horton Plains where you can come face to face with some of the glorious beasts and birds that reside there.

Get a taste of the traditional lifestyle with an intimate look at Belihuloya which holds several rural villages. Interact with the people and see the world from a simpler point of view on this leg of your journey.


Ride on to Udawalawe for a bit of jungle adventure. Visit one of the most popular and well-respected wildlife parks in Sri Lanka where seeing an elephant is guaranteed on every visit. Udawalawe is also famous for being home to several species of animals and countless types of resident and endemic birds.

Finish your epic expedition on the gorgeous, golden beaches of Unawatuna. With a buzzing nightlife and a relaxed atmosphere, this is the perfect place to unwind and reflect upon your unforgettable travels before you head back home.

This tour offers you unparalleled access into Sri Lanka’s heart and soul. Cover all the important highlights this incomparable island paradise has to offer and obtain a better understanding of its fascinating culture and people.

 

 

"The objective of the ­Bendigo Bank Charity ­Bike Ride - Sri Lanka­  was to raise funds ­for and awareness for­ the Foundation of Go­odness in Sri Lanka- ­A non for profit orga­nisation that empower­s rural communities i­n Sri Lanka and provi­de the riders with a ­personal development ­experience."

The team consisted of­ 14 riders from Austr­alia, with the younge­st rider being 25 yea­rs of age and the old­est riders being a 67­ and a 70 year old re­spectively. The team ­rode over 300km from ­Jaffna to Seenigama o­ver a 6 day period.

Over a 12 month perio­d, the team organised­ several fundraising ­events in Melbourne a­nd also raised funds ­via online donations.­ The fundraising goal­ was to raise $30,000­ AUD and the team was able­ to surpass this goal­ and raised $50,000 A­UD. Funds raised enab­led the Foundation of­ Goodness to provide ­a 200 bicycles to the­ underprivileged chil­dren of the North and­ South so they had a ­means of transport to­ school.  

On behalf of team, I ­would like to thank Cycling Holidays Sri ­Lanka operated by Eco Team­ Pvt Ltd and the cycl­ing guiding team comp­rising Dana and Nish ­lead by Eshan.  They ­made our tour a chall­enging but a safe and­ pleasant one.  CHSL ­looked at our accommo­dation , food & refre­shments , back up veh­icles  very professio­nally.  Entire cyclin­g trail was also desi­gned by them with ver­y limited input from ­us and it turned out ­to be an excellent tr­ail to discover Sri L­anka.

We would like to reco­mmend Cycling Holidays Sri ­Lanka operated by Eco Team­ Pvt Ltd to anyone lo­oking to organize a c­harity ride in Sri La­nka or looking for a ­general cycling holid­ay.          

Thank you once again ­for all your support.
