In 2016 two cycling buddies, Rob & Gary, decided to run an exploratory trip with their local cycling club to Taiwan. They simply couldn’t believe how brilliant the experience was, and decided then and there that they wanted to try to bring more people out to the island paradise….and so they did. So many people in fact, that they teamed up with some local riders and started their own company bringing English speaking cyclists to discover Taiwan, and so Pedal Taiwan was born. 

But Gary & Rob’s taste for adventure wasn’t quite satisfied yet. As seasoned travellers, they knew that if people loved the trips to Taiwan (and they did!) then they’d also love to ride in other less well known corners of the world. And so from Taiwan followed Sri Lanka, Japan, Korea, Spain and Scotland, teaming up with local experts in each of the locations to produce mind blowing trips for groups of cyclists from all over the world. So if you’ve got a similar taste for adventure but haven’t had the chance to ride your bike in one of these hidden gems, why not get in touch an see how we can support you to get you out on the road!

MEET the team

bike tour coffee stop


Originally from the UK, Rob has been organising and leading bicycle tours across Asia for the last several years. 

An avid cyclist, Rob first came to the bicycle kingdom in 2016 to ride the ‘ban-dao’ and just never left. His second love to cycling is food, and he’s happiest when bringing hungry riders home-made local Taiwanese treats.

A paragraph simply isn’t enough to talk about Gary’s exploits on a bike. He’s toured the whole of South America, Europe, Africa & Asia. Raced in the transcontinental, off-roaded the whole of the Highlands and Audaxed across the globe… and that’s just for starters. 

What this man doesn’t know about a bicycle hasn’t been discovered yet, and he’s a pretty decent bloke into the mix.

Pedal Taiwan group tour


James has been guiding and riding in various locations across Asia for over 10 years. He knows every route, repair station and rest stop like the back of his hand, and he’s always making new friends on the road! 

A mountain specialist, James may well hold the record for number of completed rides up the Taiwan KOM…that is if he could ever remember them all.
