Stephen takes you on a truely amazing ride. Mysore having such a rich history and culture is perfect for a guided bike tour. No excuses, the oldest person participating in our group was 73 years old. He enjoyed it a lot!

You just have to, or you will just miss out so much. Well organized, planned, thought out and lovingly told. So much fun and so much culture. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves discussing diverse and colorful topics from Yorkshire to Japan, Hinduism to Shintoism. Thank you so very much, Stephen! From the dreamer & planner.

Up until the day we took the bicycle trip, our month in India had been hustle and bustle and largely city centred. A day in the countryside meandering through the Srirangapatna area was lovely! Stephen led our group of four through the village, stopping to point out a variety of things about the way of life. Our stops were peppered... More

With very few exceptions, a guided tour in India is a monotone flow of almost unintelligible detail delivered at high speed by a disinterested middle-aged man. We all know it doesn't have to be like that, and with Stephen's MyCycle tours of Mysore it certainly isn't. While it's true he IS a middle-aged man, his guided tours are delivered with... More

The perfect way to end a beautiful trip. Kids were looking forward to this cycling trip. Steve made us feel at ease right from the beginning of our journey by cracking jokes and making the kids feel very comfortable with him. It started off as a 30-45 minute trip but ran into hours. Must do if you are around Mysore.

We had a terrific afternoon with Stephen traveling around Srirangapatna. Having limited time in the area, I did some research and this was a great option to see a lot in a little time. Our rickshaw driver was prompt and delivered us safely to Stephen. We were entertained with history and comedy throughout the afternoon; visiting the fort, the Kaveri... More

We did two tours with MYcycle, both of which were brilliant. Stephen was an extremely entertaining and imformative guide. The pace was good and the tours covered both history and current culture, which was just what we wanted. Stephen managed to make us active participants in the tour and we had many interesting discussions along the way. The bikes were... More

It works really well when our guests do both of our main tours. We usually do the Srirangaptnam tour first and then the city. It fits better together chronologically and cyclists get used to the countryside before venturing into the city traffic. The Mysore tour which sets off from our guest house Mysore Bed and Breakfast is our original tour.... More

Loved this bike ride around Sringapatnam island despite the fact I had ridden a bike in 30 years! The pace was slow and Stephen was very reassuring and was so interesting to get away from the usual tourist stuff. We watched a bullock cart being built, visited a sugar works alongside the cane fields and a very busy riverside temple... More

Srirangapatnam Cycle Tour was one of the highlights of my recent trip to India. Stephen really 'makes' this tour - he was super friendly and knowledgeable throughout; he has great relationships with everyone we met on our tour stops (fresh coconut, chai and jaggery to name a few) and tells you the interesting history and culture of the area and...
