Is it safe?
The short answer is yes, but as with any travel there is a certain level of risk that everyone needs to accept. It is important to respect the local culture and people and to observe the law while travelling. Your greatest hazard is motorized vehicles, as it is for cyclists everywhere, so practicing defensive cycling and wearing appropriate safety/visibility gear is essential.
We do a lot of research, planning, and work with local contacts in the areas that the tour passes through. Through all of this, we make educated choices on the best and safest routes to take. At times, this means we need to reroute the tour to continue on schedule. Our tours in Europe and North America are less prone to these sort of measures, and the routes remain more consistent.
