    For those who rode St Lucia, was it worth it? Im going in January and was wondering if the Bike St Lucia company was worth a visit. The website really doesnt give much info let alone pricing.

    I haven't been yet, but I'll be going on a cruise soon and planning to try it out for a day. Here's the breakdown on cost (quote from their email):

    "Our Jungle Biking™ tour includes the bike & helmet (Cannondale F800 Leftys), bottle of water, all transportation, snorkeling in the marine park, beach amenities, nature/historical trails and an excellent lunch which includes salad and veg bars and a choice of BBQ chicken or Fresh Catch of the Day. The cost is US$115"

    When they say transportation, they will pick up from the Ferry Dock (near cruise ships) at 8:45 and return you there at 4 p.m. They also have some other non-biking tours, which I think my wife and daughter will do while my son and I hit the trails. The site for those is: Jungle Reef Adventures - St. Lucia's Premium Adventure Sports Tours - Home

    I'll post an update after our trip.

    This was about 10 years ago. The trails were nice but the bikes were rough. Hopefully they had upgraded but the drive trains on most of our 4 bikes were badly worn. Bad shifting, chains skipping on climbs, etc. At that time we were the only ones there that day.

    Snorkeling was average. Tough for me to judge as we are used to seeing much more while scuba diving. Food was good.

    To answer your question: Yes, it was worth it and I would do it again. I would also make sure to do a good test ride before heading off into the jungle.

    I work for Bike Tours Direct. We represent local tour companies all over the world. This keeps prices down and gives you the benefit of having a local guide showing you around. We have been adding all kinds of awesome tours recently. Here is a video of a tour from one of our operators in Scotland. You will probably recognize some of the riders...

    I just remembered that I posted something two spots up. Forgive me for the repetitiveness. But do watch the video..

    I guess I am still learning the ways of the Forums...

    Some fun rides that I've enjoyed:

    Khyber Pass from Jalalabad to Peshawar
    Kashmir, from Srinagar to Pahalgam, then up the trail to the shrine
    Costa Brava and the Basque Country between France and Spain
    The back roads from San Rafael to Cannes
    The roads from Ajaccio to Bonafacio on Corsica
    The trails around Sheffield between San Antonio and El Paso...nice ride along the Pecos
    The trails from Albuquerque to Santa Fe along the Turquoise Trail.
    The Mountain Trail above Fort Bliss in El Paso

    Thailand! I was there for a climbing trip and the place was amazing. Krabi is an island paradise south west of thailand that offers all types of adventure sports. I was there to soak on the sand and climb the awesome limestone lines but I had friends that biked around the island and loved it. For more serious mountain biking, head up north to Chang Mai. Great scenery and amazing mountain biking trails, highly recommended.

    My vote is for Nepal!

    I've been lucky to travel all over the world with my MTB tour company, Sacred Rides. In 17 years, nothing has quite compared to biking in Nepal. Peru comes a pretty close 2nd!

    I spent the last two weeks in August riding around the desolute backcountry of Iceland solo. And when it was raining, I partied like a rock star in Reykjavik. I planned to go surfing too but the conditions were poor.
