How do we pick the appropriate mountain bike tour?
Please visit our Bike Tour Page and read about the tour descriptions. If you would like to build a custom tour please use Custom Tour/Inquiry form. Please consider the following: tour time – half or full day tour per day; trip rating – scenic or intermediate or advanced; and terrain – roads (paved and/or dirt) or trails or singletrack trails. If you need additional information, please contact us with your questions or concerns.

Can kids go on a mountain bike tour?
We encourage you to bring your children to Sri Lanka, however we can not offer biking gear children as we do not carry them. If you bring them we will accommodate them as a Private Tour booking – the Smanalawewa Tour and the Mulgama Tour are Great Family Tours!. We can also custom build tours to fit your family requirements. Please note the minimum age to ride a bike on a RideLanka tour is 8 years old. You must contact us in advance if you’d like to take kids on a tour or arranging some activities for them while you ride as they will be private tours.

 
 

 

What is singletrack?
Singletrack is a mountain bike term for trail riding – a narrower path with possible obstacles to ride over. All our MTB Tours that offer singletrack riding occur in the national forests, mountains, and tea plantations.

Explain the approximate tour time?
The approximate time is the total tour time which includes the transportation time to and from the trailhead, this is based on total time from lodge back to lodge. Whereas the bike riding time is in general 1 to 3 hours less than total time.

What is the average group size?
The average group size is 2 to 10 riders. We strive to keep a ratio of 5 guests to 1 guide on our guided mountain bike tours.

What kind of food is served on bike tours?
We offer a snack, juice & cookies on our half day tours (5 or less hours) and a box lunch on our full day tours. Please feel free to bring snacks on all tours especially on Family Bike Tours. Every guest gets his or her own water bottle to use on the tour.

What clothing should we wear on a bike tour?
We suggest wearing comfortable summer mtn biking clothing and sneakers (please don’t wear sandals) plus an extra wind/rain shell. Most of the time we are riding at 3000 ft or above, so the weather can change without much notice any time of the year.

What should we bring on a bike tour?
We will supply the mountain bike (optional), food and a water bottle. We suggest bringing a camera, sunglasses, sunscreen (+15 or higher), extra water and snacks.

What kind of wildlife will we see?
Every tour is different, but most tours provide an opportunity to see wildlife in their natural setting. Our guests regularly see buffalo, elephants, deer, eagles and various birds of prey. Celebrity appearances include sightings of leopard and even bears.
