You can’t enjoy a great biking trip without a really great bike. On this trip, we’ll use well-tuned, high-quality, local bikes that provide a good fit to your size and weight.
The right number of like-minded travellers to make new friends.
Your dates. Your group. Our expertly-designed itinerary.
Tailored to your interests, a bespoke travel experience.
Combines the hallmarks of any B&R itinerary (excellent hotels and beautiful routes) with the freedom of pacing each day exactly the way you like.
Throughout the day, a knowledgeable local guide provides insider access and expert tips. At night, you can explore and dine on your own.
Our B&R guides are with you throughout, anticipating needs, translating languages, providing advice and—above all—facilitating fun.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
“I can’t say I really ‘work out,’ but I’m in good shape and am relatively active.”
“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”
“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”
“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”
“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”
After taking to the roads of Vietnam for over a decade, we’ve made some good friends who grasp the art of hospitality to the extent that we do. We’ve teamed up with our B&R family on the ground to create this go-at-your-own-pace journey, allowing you to explore one of our favourite corners of Southeast Asia the way you want to. Plus, you’ll see, that you’re never truly alone. You’ll be joined by smiling children as you cycle the quiet country roads, you’ve been invited for lunch in the home of a Nguyen Dynasty relative, and some local culinary gurus want to show you how to prepare their favourite dish. Ready to meet your new friends?

I don’t know how B&R does it – the quality of their trips is so consistently high! Just when we think they couldn’t do anything as good as our last trip, they do! Another fantastic experience with B&R.— Carolyn Zaslaw
Our bike rides have been created to offer routes that everyone will enjoy—but, while we’ve done our best to keep the morning routes as easygoing as possible, there is the occasional climb. The B&R support van will be on hand for anyone that would like a lift up the hill to continue their ride.
“I’m in relatively good shape but I haven’t been on a bike since my last B&R trip.”
Relatively flat terrain with a few small hills—all very manageable for people trying their first biking trip.Read more on our Activity Levels
