Ben, Travel designer

He splits his time between leading tours and running our Delhi office. But of one thing's for sure: his love for motorbikes is undivided!

Geared to excellent drivers, budding mechanics, and ultra-resourceful types, this offbeat road trip takes you into the Himalayan foothills, facing the majestic Nanda Devi (7816m/26,643ft). Before you venture along the winding roads of Uttarkhand, we’ll give you a full induction to understand your bike and anticipate the pitfalls ahead. Smart advice, a recap on riding rules (oh yes!), a road book, a sat-nav – and away you go, utterly free, to tackle the unplanned occurrences of a journey in India. We can’t wait to hear about your adventures.

“Great team offering a wide choice of rides. I selected northern Thailand, the golden triangle route. Well planned ride on good quality bike's, interesting and unique accommodation, well priced and well organised. No hesitation in recommending them and I am planning another trip for 2018 Neil UK”

Paul
Vintage Rides - Simply the Best.

“Having joined two tours in India previously with Vintage Rides I have no hesitation in booking a third and recommending this company as experts in their field to anyone contemplating a guided tour on the sub continent or the far east. Vintage Rides is a French company and as expected many of the riders are French speakers but it is not a barrier. I speak English and have only a little of the French language but I have been welcomed by both the tour leaders and the other riders without any problems at all. Communication is not a problem in the brotherhood off the bikers. The tour leaders know their stuff and take you to places off the well beaten tourist track, always mindful of one's safety. The support team for mechanical issues that can occasionally arise with the robust Royal Enfield 500cc Bullet bikes and for transport of luggage and local knowledge remove any concerns, just sit back and enjoy the ride.”
