Biking in Bhutan

I’ve recently started cycling again. So I was happy to bump into Kuenga Wangchuk, Pasang, Singye Tshering, Amier Mongar and Nima Palden. Kuenga is a bike technician with Yu Druk, a tour company that specializes in and promotes cycling in Bhutan. Pasang owns a tour company, Singye and Nima are guides, and Amier is a bar tender at Bhutan Suites.

The five friends bike together as often as possible, but at least every weekend. Most of their routes are around Thimphu. To Tango Monastery, for example. Or to Kuenselphodrang. And, sometimes, to Sangaygang from where there’s a lovely 5 km biking trail that runs through the beautiful forests and passes by Wangditse and Choekortse.

Yesterday, I met them in Shaba, as they cycled from Thimphu to Paro, where they would have lunch, before heading back to Thimphu.

They said that they might let me ride with them. So, I’m already looking forward to the coming weekends.
