We and many of guests are passionate about our Road Cycling. The below gives some ideas and options of whats in the area but as always a little time and adventure off the beaten track provides rewards.  我和我们的客人都酷爱骑行。我提供了一些周边的骑行线路,但如果你能发现其他的有趣的线路,将会给你的骑行带来更多的乐趣。

There are 6 main climbs in the area and lots of smaller ones. We are trying to put together an ultra ride connecting them. They are individually all accessible and feasible for one day rides out and back from Wildhometay. Local vans can be provided as pickups if needed. See the below on routes, itineraries, calendars, and cycling info.

Self Guided – New for 2018 自助骑行

We will experiment with a Self Guided Tour option this year. Fully guided is not our thing, please contact the professionals – Serk and Ridenow for that. We want to offer a different experiences which retains part of the adventure and risk of getting lost and exploring around but at the same time having a few creature comforts available.  今年我们会尝试自助骑行,希望会带来一些探险体验。

We provide you a GPS route and communicate with you on wechat.  同时会提供GPS路线,并随时通过微信联系我们。

There are various meeting points. Interesting ones! A local van meets you there. You get a short rest, nice cold sports drink, hot coffee, cake, some snacks etc. Between the meeting points you have routes which we assume you will explore around and might well get lost.  在几个汇合点会有冷饮,热咖啡,点心等着你。在到达汇合点前,做好有可能迷路的准备。

You completely run out of puff or get a mechanical then throw yourself and your bike in the van (wechat the driver to come and pick you up). You get a flat, fix it yourself! The van will not be following you. 如果你体力耗尽或自行车出现故障,我们可以叫车接你。如果只是轮胎漏气,你必须自己修理,没有车会跟随你的。
