Alex, Travel designer

He knows just about all there is to know about motorbike tours in Asia, having launched the Vintage Rides concept 10 years ago.

Saddle up for an authentic pilgrimage in the “Land of the Gods”, a gentle first taster of the Himalaya. This Himalayan motorcycle trip will propel you along the most beautiful roads in the areas of Kumaon and Garhwal, which are graced by famous Hindu temples and holy rivers. In this little-visited region, encounters take on a special atmosphere, and a sense of spirituality is present everywhere. Ride along twisting roads on cliff faces and amid pine forests, and pass through picturesque villages as far as Rishikesh, world yoga capital and a hub for rafting fanatics. After all these adventures, you’ll come to the holy city of Haridwar, on the banks of the Ganges, and gauge the importance of the sacred in India…
