This is a tour designed to give nature lovers and adventurers the perfect tonic to break away from the monotonies of everyday life. An exclusive cycling adventure that showcases the most amazing wildlife on show on this captivating island.

Upon your arrival in Sri Lanka, you will be whisked away to the coastal southern town of Unawatuna, where you will begin your wild odyssey. You will first ride inland towards the Wet Zone of the country. You will get a chance to ride through Deniyaya, which lies in close proximity to the great Sinharaja rainforest and is home to dozens of species of rare birds and animals.

Then, head over to Udawalawe, which guarantees a sighting of an elephant on every visit. Regarded as one of the best national parks in the country, Udawalawe boasts an exciting array of animal species and birds. Afterwards, you will head over to Yala. The Yala National Park is Sri Lanka’s most celebrated national wildlife park and is home to the largest population of leopards in the country. It is truly a must-see attraction for all nature lovers and budding naturalists.

It’s time to head to the hills of Sri Lanka with a look at the romantic and breathtaking landscape in Nuwara Eliya. Fondly regarded as Sri Lanka’s slice of England, it is a throwback to the country’s colonial roots. Ride through its glorious tea estates and breathe in the cool air which flows through its mountainous surroundings.

Head over to the hill capital of Kandy next and experience the unique culture of Sri Lanka’s last kingdom. Serving as a sanctuary to the relic of Lord Buddha’s tooth, Kandy is a very important place in the hearts and minds of Buddhists around the globe.

Then, it’s on to Sigiriya, where you can explore its great fortress which was used by King Kashyapa to rule his lands. It is also one of the best remaining examples of ancient urban planning. You can then explore the ruins of Polonnaruwa, which tell the story of one of the country’s most prosperous eras. Cycle through the remnants and unravel the truly enthralling story of the Polonnaruwa kingdom.

A tour through Sri Lanka’s oldest kingdom is up next. Anuradhapura also boasts great architectural feats and an interesting back-story which tells of Sri Lanka’s prosperous roots.

You can then head back into the wild, with a tour of the Wilpattu National Park. This less-frequented treasure is Sri Lanka’s largest wildlife park and is a refuge for a stunning array of birds and beasts. Explore the island’s natural wild beauty one last time before making your way to your final stop in Negombo, where you can enjoy the country’s beautiful coastline and warm ocean waters.

This tour will take you through all of the country’s best wildlife parks and treat you to a feast of wild adventure.

This is your chance to experience the history and culture of the enigmatic Sri Lanka while enjoying its lush scenery and dazzling wildlife all in one.

 

 

 

 

"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.
