Exploring the backcountry on a mountain bike is a great way to get a slice of what south Sri Lanka has to offer: Waterfalls, river trails, local villages, ancient temples, the paddy fields, spice plantations, nature parks, ride in a tropical paradise.
Tours are organised for small groups with a local guide with local knowledge. Bike are maintained to a high standard and tour guides are trained in safety, first-aid and minimising the ecological impact of your trip. Depending on your experience as a rider there are options from gentle touring to exhilarating downhill trails.
In the southwest coast there is a really nice company, Idle Bikes based out of Galle that fix bike trips around $30 to $40 USD per person. They were established in 2004 so know a thing or too. Please contact them directly.
