Saddle up and cycle the quiet backroads of Sri Lanka. Splendid temples, ancient ruins, welcoming people and flavourful food are all to be found within this small country and it is the perfect destination to explore by bicycle. Pedal to the fortress at Sigiriya and the hill country towns of Kandy and Nuwara Eliya. Ride through the cool highlands with its tea plantations, waterfalls and beautiful vistas, before dropping to the south coast. Here you get to search for leopards in Yala National Park before spending some time on the beautiful beaches.
