Cycling in Tibet
Many people ask if it is possible to cycle in Tibet. Not only is it possible to cycle in Tibet, it has become very popular over the past 10 years. The same travel regulations apply however, if you want to cycle. There is no independent travel and you still need to be part of an organized tour that includes travel permits, a tour guide and a private vehicle with a driver. There are NO exceptions to these regulations and these regulations most likely will remain in place for a very long time to come. This of course, causes the price of cycling tours in Tibet to be out of range for most budget travelers. Most cycling trips in Tibet take 2 to 4 weeks and it can get costly having to pay for a guide, private vehicle and driver for that long. Even though you plan to cycle, the government still requires all foreigners to have a “support vehicle” to go with them. The support vehicle usually follows a few kilometers in front or behind you. The guide normally rides in the vehicle and is there if you have any questions about the route or the towns that you pass through. Unless you book a tour through a company that only arranges cycling tours, you will be responsible for all the maintenance of your bike.
