Helmets are available in Medium and Large sizes and we can supply them for our tours. If you would rather not wear a used helmet please bring your own. We will assume you will use ours unless you indicate otherwise.
These shirts are available to all who join our Cycling the Castles of China Tour!
Bicycles are included on the majority of our tours. We keep a variety of Mountain Bike frames purchased through the years warehoused in China and Hong Kong. In Sabah, Malaysia and Taiwan we use bikes provided by our ground handlers - mostly Hasa and Giant Frames. All of our frames are hard tail with front suspension. We have ladies frames as well as some Men's 22" which are very hard to find now. Some Chrome Moly some Aluminium with Shimano componentry and v-brake systems. In general the bikes we provide are in the low mid range and would retail for around USD400 each. Some choose to bring their own bike for our tour. No problem but keep in mind we do not have insurance that covers your bike or its shipping. Some choose to bring their own seat and clip pedals which we will happily put on our bikes.
For our tours in Tibetan regions and the nature of rough roads we ride we do not provide bikes. For those who wish we can rent a Rocky Mountain Instinct Full Suspension Bike for USD600. For something VERY unique ride our handmade Bamboo Bikes through Tibetan Villages! (See Our Bamboo bike trip in Sichuan for more information)
On our Hong Kong tours we use Cannondale Bikes. In Taiwan we use Giant Bikes - that is where they are made!
