Wir hatten das Vergnügen, 22 Tage auf unserer Kerala-Tour von Francis begleitet zu werden.Wir wurden ausgezeichnet von Francis betreut. Die Tour war gut organisiert, Francis half uns sprachlich beim Kontakt mit der Bevölkerung und produzierte herrliche Videos über unsere Tour. Ich kann Francis und sein Team von Offbeat Pedals nur empfehlen.

An absolutely incredible experience. Offbeat Pedals managed to put an incredibly memorable customized trip together for me in a matter of days, when all I asked for was “an adventure”. I traveled to India by myself and spent a week with them riding a Royal Enfield around Kerela. Sujith and Francis became friends rather than just guides- they took me to delicious local restaurants (taught me how to eat with my hands), introduced me to their friends and family and were always available for assistance or recommendations- to myself and everyone else around. I would highly recommend Offbeat Pedals to anyone looking to travel India- whether it be by Motorcycle, E-bike or foot. I’ll definitely keep in touch with them and hopefully travel again with them in the future.
Wow, what a fabulous experience. Francis, Sujith and Asim will guide you, treat you like gold and expose you to the area like you could never have imagined. You'll cycle through rubber and tea plantations, up hills and down dales, eat, drink and see local, go to the beach, swim in streams and I could go on and on. These guys will dot the I's and cross the T's. I couldn't recommend them highly enough. Ari from South Africa
We did a great three weeks long tour through the South of India with two persons only.. Everything was well planed by Offbeat Pedals, Francis was an excellent tour guide. I have done several tours with him some years ago, also in the North. This tour was done in Oct/Nov. Weather was nice and warm, the selection of hotels, Swiss tents and homestays was very well done and a fine mixture of getting connected with the culture and population. The bicycles we have had for the tour fitted well and were good running in all situations. The guide and driver always respected and followed our wishes. When you are open minded, interested in the Indian landscape and culture I would recommend Francis and his organisation. You will get a list of hotels you will stay and can change this in advance. You will get what you have booked. Be surprised of the good roads of India and the fine hotels. Eine wirklich empfehlenswerte Organisation mit sehr gutem Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis. Tolle Hotels und Strassen teils besser als im Ruhrgebiet. Man geht auf alle eure Wünsche ein.
Amazing trip. Sujith was really good at tailoring the adventure to exactly what we asked for. We felt in very good hands. Great views, lovely people, loads of interesting context on the culture, the area, how people live. The hiking is varied in a spectacular place. And the food was gorgeous. would definitely recommend.
My husband and I have just spent the most wonderful month cycling through South India with Offbeat Pedals. We combined two of their tours and they reversed the route of one of them to make a bespoke itinerary for us. We started in Chennai, following the east coast to Tranquebar then across country to Kochi then up the west coast to end in North Goa. All the arrangements we made in advance were easy; we could make requests for changes, approve all our accommodation and Sujith was very quick to respond to any messages. The bikes were great quality and well maintained. My husband brought his own saddle. We also had e-bikes as back-up, which I used sometimes, for when the going got steep. We rode together with Francis, who is a very capable guide, bike mechanic and all-round fun guy with a great sense of humour, who adapted our route to accommodate some additional spontaneous adventures along the way. We also visited his and Sujith’s families on our route and could not have been made more welcome. Our excellent support driver Santhosh also deserves special mention for some impressive driving, photography and sherpa skills on our occasional treks. We discovered so much along the way, including the surprising fact that Indian traffic is much less scary once you are on wheels and actually part of it. We found it more easy-going and less aggressive or threatening than traffic in London. We really cannot recommend Offbeat Pedals highly enough. Our trip exceeded all our expectations and we can’t wait to travel with the “dream team” again in Rajasthan next year.
I just completed the Kerala back waters 6 day cycle tour and I honestly had the absolute time of my life. The tour was incredibly well organized, the support provided all along the journey could not have been better and every detail of what we needed was provided by Sujith and his team. I am from Canada and travelled a long way to be on this tour and this was easily one of the best adventures of my life as we saw so many different aspects of India and experienced Kerala in such a close and personal way. There is no better way to really get to know a place than to see it on a bicycle journey. Thank you Sujith and the whole Offbeat Pedals team for making our vacation so memorable. I would recommend this tour whole heatedly and hope that I too have the chance to participate on another tour.
