The beautiful landscapes of rural Cambodia are opened up on a cycle trip here. Paddy fields, Buddhist temples and stilted houses are to be found along all routes which generally finish at Angkor Wat. Visitors often get an opportunity to see one of the many charity projects operating in the area. A trip here will enable you to be among the first generation of westerners to rediscover the country, after the ravages of civil war and the excesses of the Pol Pot regime.

Grand Canyon bike ride

Cycling trips generally take in more than 200 miles of the Grand Canyon’s 277 miles. Probably the USA's best known natural attraction, it is surrounded by diverse landscapes – from arid desert to riverside vegetation. Most days on a ride have challenging sections off-road, and generally finish with a trek on foot to see the Canyon in its full glory.

Kenya cycle

There are plenty of opportunities for cycling challenges in Kenya, with many starting from the slopes of Mount Kenya, Africa's second tallest peak at 17057 feet (5,199 meters). Routes go both on and off-road, taking in savannah plains, game parks, tropical rainforests and traditional villages. Lake Victoria is a typical scenic place to finish, and there are usually opportunities to visit Nairobi National Park.

South Cape Cycle Challenge

This a real trip of contrasts, a cycle challenge in the South Cape will take you from dense tropical bush to open deserts. The challenge will really test your stamina, but will allow you to experience some of South Africa's most dramatic scenery. Several charities have been given special permission to cycle in protected areas, with a proportion of the profits received, going towards local conservation projects.

Canadian Rockies

Cycling in one of Canada’s greatest National parks provides beautiful and extreme scenery along the way, taking in the Radium Hot Springs, Lake Louise and the Columbian Icefields. You better get your legs especially in gear for this one as routes consist of rolling hills and mountains, and for the more daring, many trip operators offer the option of white-water rafting on the Kicking Horse River.

Egypt cycle tour

For a touch of the ancient you could take in the awe-inspiring monuments of Egypt. Most trips naturally follow the massive Nile, with accommodation generally a bed on the water in a Nile cruiser. The routes take you from one extreme to another – from flat to undulating, or from green vegetation to desert terrain. The Aswan Dam, and Luxor – with its ancient burial places of the Pharaohs are among the highlights that make this a sensational place to take a cycling tour.
