This was one of the highlights of our holiday in India, offering our family a unique view of Mysore. It was so good to be travelling through peaceful countryside (sugar cane and paddi fields) listening to the sounds of the birds - so different from the chaotic, noisy streets of Indian cities. We went on the Sriragnapatnam tour, which takes... More

We were a group of four who joined this tour with Stephen and had a great time on the half-day guided ride through Srirangapatna. In fact, this tour was a real highlight of our trip to India. Stephen made the tour informative and enjoyable, and he has very thoughtfully created a route for the bike ride that means that you... More

What a guy (Stephen) and what a tour (Srirangapatnam) Pre arranged TukTuk with Vasanth to Srirangaptnam, very friendly man. Bikes in great condition with a complimentary bottle of water in the holder. Cycled through side streets, across train tracks, along side rivers, crops, paddy fields, grazing cows with their bird companion, lots of hellos and much much more! Stopped for... More

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
