Jason and Tshering
CycleBhutan.com is a collaboration between cultures. Jason Williams, who is based in Melbourne, Australia, is the founder and looks after the sales and pre-tour logistics. Tshering Dorji, based in Paro, Bhutan, is in charge of the local team and looks after everything on the ground. Jason and Tshering first met in Singapore in 2010 and it was a great meeting of minds. Both have a passion for the outdoors, cycling, and showing people the beauty of Bhutan, as well as long histories in operating bike tours.
Jason has been cycling Asia for more than 15 years worked for a number of tour companies as well as setting up what is now Asia's largest specialist bicycle tour business. After leaving this company in 2014 Jason wanted to focus all his attention on Bhutan, the one country that really captured his travel and cycling heart.
Every trip is custom made for you, to suit your time, cycling ability, accommodation standard, and holiday wishes. If there is something you want to do on your holiday let us know and we'll do our best to make it happen.
Being passionate cyclists we are not going to provide second rate bikes for our tours. Our fleet consists of a great stock of Trek 4300 mountain bikes in a range of sizes from 13.5" to 22.5". These bikes are perfectly suited to the hard conditions that Bhutanese roads throw at you. With lock out front suspension, disc brakes, 27 gears, and hybrid touring tyres they are comfortable and strong. You are, of course, welcome to bring your own bike if you wish.
We will require a US$500 deposit per person at the time of booking. Final payment will be required two months before your trip starts. We accept payment by bank transfer or for a small surcharge you can pay by credit card through PayPal. While all trips will be quoted in US dollars we will accept payment in Australian dollars using an exchange rate on the day of payment.
It is important that you read the booking conditions before booking on your holiday with us. The conditions are not too wordy or long so please read them. They also include the conditions around cancellations and insurance.
