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.

The riders' opinions

Daphne
Spiti Valley - Absolutely fantastic!

“Absolutely fantastic. The pre-trip organization and communication was stellar. The itinerary and accommodations were well planned and our guide, mechanic, and support driver collectively allowed for a trip where any risk of stress was quickly replaced with nothing but pure delight. I took the Spiti Valley tour ("Gateway to Tibet") which offered otherworldly views and rich cultural exposure. The remote area was particularly enjoyable as even when compared to other Himalayan routes there was very little traffic... truck or otherwise (The last thing I want to do is to go to a remote location to be stuck endlessly maneuvering around slow trucks). I sing the praises of Vintage Rides at every possible opportunity. I've ridden motorcycles all over the world either independently or with a tour group and this trip was tops! I wish I had sooner discovered Vintage Rides and they will certainly be my choice again. Vive la Moto! (If you like to see the video of the trip it is at advmotorbike dot com under "global moto"... it will say in image more than my words can convey!)”

Himalayan ride to Leh

“I found the ride through the Himalayan Mountains to Leh from Manali excellent. Vintage Riders did an excellent job in making this ride a success. I would recommend them to an rider who would go with them.”

James Mc
July 2015 Himalayan Motobike tour

“An awesome adventure lead by a very capable and fun tour leader. A great mix of riding from bitumen to two wheel dirt tracks and a great mix of accommodation experiences from hotels, hostels to large tents. Price was genuinely reasonable and our mechanic was a wizard. I will most definitely do it again in a couple of years time when I get sick of just looking at the photos and video!”
