Win a Peaty’s Complete Bicycle Cleaning Kit this issue in our FREE subscriber prize draw.
Sometimes it’s important to slow down, to get away from it all and nothing beats getting out on your bike and getting lost in the ride. Take a ride in Nepal and leave the world behind one pedal stroke at a time.
Fast food, fast cars, fast tracked, fast bikes…. To escape the pressures of modern life I like to take my bike to the mountains, alone or with friends, and enjoy time without keeping any records, without a watch, back to primitive needs, and simple pleasures. Join us in the Solukhumbu region of East Nepal. An ancient land still untouched by mass tourism and definitely the best place that I’ve ridden. When you ride the trails you can’t help thinking that the people who built them thought that mountain bikers would come here one day, they are so much fun to ride. These trips to the mountains really make me realise we need to slow down. To ride in Nepal enduromtbnepal.com and for films like this garythomasfilms.com – © Gary Thomas
