“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.” Mark Twain.
“It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.” Hemingway.
Cycling is the most fun way to travel! It gets you into the action and away from the tourists.
Designed for NON hardcore riders, we use bicycles to get in the thick of it, rather than racing you from A to B at Tour de France speed.
Our epicentre is Hong Kong, so Bikeaways trips are mostly designed for people living in China who want an action-packed city escape.
ECO is our Philosophy
No flags, no mega phones … off the beaten track, heritage destinations and forgotten villages where we can spread our business are some of the criteria in designing our trips. Fostering an appreciation of heritage and supporting sustainable traditions become more real with the access a bike gives you to places off the map.
For China city-based expats, these are refreshingly natural getaways that don’t burn excess fuel to get there – or get around.
– Xiamen, our base for the Fujian tulou rides is now just four hours on a bullet train from Shenzhen or a one hour flight from Hong Kong; two hours from Shanghai; three from Beijing.
The Kaiping Diaolou in Guangdong are even closer to Hong Kong.
Yangshuo – one of the best cycling destinations in the world is also a comfortable overnight sleeper train from the border town of Shenzhen right next to Hong Kong.
We stay in accommodation with personality – traditional or family run where possible.
Food and tea are an important part of the experience.
