Nepal offers a great
selection of on and off road biking. On road biking in
the city can be hazardous due to heavy traffic and
unpleasant from pollution. Out side the ring road there
are some great long paved climbs with rugged down hill
that covers unused jeep tracks which at times can be
like steep rocky river beds thanks to the monsoon rains
and single trails which wind through the jungles and
forests. There are also a number of narrow trails
through farming villages and rice paddies.
If you choose you can also take to the mountains and
make use of some of the trekking trails to provide you
with a real technical biking challenge.
