Recce Rides in Nepal – vlog#1

 

Recce Rides

So this is *probably the first video we made with some beautiful footage of riding on some of the same roads as our Everest View trips. After many years plotting and planning Ride Nepal the ‘travel prodigy’ of adventure biking in the world’ biggest adventure playground was born…

…Before the era of gyro stabilisation there is some pretty gnarly footage of previous rides, but to save you the feeling of car sickness whilst watching I’ve opted to just start from the more recent past. This video gives you a snapshot of some of the roads that we ride into the Solukhumbu region of Nepal, home of Sagarmatha otherwise known as Mount Everest. As a team we’ve ridden probably every road there is to ride in Nepal and want to keep that reputation up, so any new roads that are built – we’re there. Recce-ing the roads and creating itineraries is half the job and definitely half the fun. Whilst Nepal is certainly a popular trekking destination, more and more roads are being constructed and this means of course better trade for the locals, much quicker travel for families to come see relatives working in the cities and well of course the most important of all more and more motorcycling! Hopefully it’s not too far in the distant future either when electric cars and motorcycles can be introduced into Nepal at a budget friendly rate which will mean cleaner air for all. And Nepal can be revived into a paradise haven of the world once again (more on this in another vlog!)

I’ll also be uploading short clips from our most recent recce to Tibet so watch out for that too. Posted here and/or our instagram account: ride.nepal
