Riding close to the coastline, you will venture north from the tropical beaches of Negombo, hugging the edge of the land and breezing through the changing landscape of jungles, palm trees, forests, villages and canals. You’ll bike over two remarkable causeways that cross the Indian Ocean, giving you a sense of exhilarating freedom, cruising over the water with wild native birds flying overhead, joining you in your scenic journey.
Enjoy experiencing Sri Lanka’s vibrant city culture from artistic Jaffna to the UNESCO heritage city of Anuradhapura with 2000-year-old ancient monuments. The country has a rich and colorful culture, you'll find yourself speechless, watching the boldly agile toddy tappers scaling the palm tree heights to collect their rewards, and you'll love the immersive experience of mingling with the locals at the vibrant markets and townships along the way.
Sri Lanka is still a relatively undiscovered destination for tourists and is fast becoming a wonderful location for cyclists to visit, with quiet but well-made mostly flat roads spanning long distances surrounded by picturesque vistas and home to an enigmatically charming culture. Lonely Planet says ‘It's the place you haven't been to yet, that you should’, and we have to agree. Get packing!
