Ride the Ho Chi Minh Trail

CYCLE TORQUE and Vietnam Motorbike Tours is offering you the chance to ride the Western Ho Chi Minh Trail, part of the infamous supply route which helped the communists win the Vietnam War. Incredibly picturesque and packed full of twisty corners, this road ride will be an incredible journey through a wonderful country.
Cycle Torque’s last tour of Vietnam, in 2012, was sold-out quickly and our 30-odd participants all had a ball riding the small-capacity road bikes through the small villages and huge countryside of Vietnam.This tour will be different, but will take in the War History Museum, a US base, the world’s biggest cave, Khe Sanh, the High Phong Pass… and lots more.
This 10-day trip departs Australia 31/1/2014 and if it’s not long enough for you Vietnam Motorbike Tours can easily add a seven day Central Highlands tour after the official Cycle Torque tour concludes.Pricing and final details will be announced in the October issue of Cycle Torque, but if you join our tour email list you will be one of the first to know – scan the QR code below or simply email
