The Rides

Mad Dogs offers a challenging bicycle rides across China, Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand and beyond. We have three scheduled rides open to general registration (Japan Epic, Taiwan Epic, Kaiping Dash) but there are many more fully-researched routes available on a "by request" basis. See much more of this beautiful continent than you would on ordinary cycling tours. We have Asia covered. 

 

Go beyond ordinary cycling tours with our customisable Epics

Browse our Epic rides and discover one that suits you. They are challenging but also a hell of a lot fun, you can’t go wrong with our carefully planned routes. Our multi-day Epics are fully customisable, meaning that you can pick which days you wish to take part, although we have offered specific suggestions for each.

 

You'll get a lot more out of it than run of the mill biking tours

We make it easy to reserve your spot. Just fill in our registration form, make a 25% deposit, email us some documentation and and you’re done!
