Rider of the month – Tom Voss

SpiceRoads cycle tours
When did you go on you go on you first cycle adventure?
My first cycle trip was with Spice Roads in 2007. We cycled from Thailand to Ankor Wat, Siem Reap Cambodia

I have been on 4 full length trips with Spice Roads and a one day trip out of Bangkok

What countries have you visited by bicycle?
Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia (Borneo), Vietnam and Sri Lanka

What do you look for when you are choosing a trip?
I generally look for something in a country I haven’t yet visited that promises interesting terrain and new cultural experiences.

What do you enjoy about bicycle touring?
I enjoy the fact that all the logistics are looked after and that days are filled with exercise, smiling faces of local children and the reward of a cold beer with new friends at the end of the day.

How much training do you do before a ride?
I try to ride or train on stationary bike two or three times a week in the month before setting out.

Do you have any advice for someone that is looking to go on a cycling adventure for the first time?
Cycling is the best way to experience a country and see the world …Just do it!!!  (My partner Jane said people should be aware that the sag wagon is always available if needed)
