I'm a professional cross country mountain biker with over 3 years of experiences in the field of biking tours in various parts of Sri Lanka. Kandy is my home town. Thus I’m much more aware about xc trails around kandy than any other experience provider. I've conducted more than 100 mountain biking tours with many nationalities from different parts of the world.
I have done more than 20000Km of riding including my personal rides during last 2 years. I have gone through a basic first aid training program by Sri Lanka Red cross. My main objective is to keep the clients happy and active and make the time that they spend with me, the best time they spend in Sri Lanka !!!

This was an amazing experience. If you like to ride, I highly recommend this as a way to get on the bike and see the beauty of Sri Lanka. Some parts of the ride can be a bit technical but its nothing to be fearful of and Vishwa is an excellent guide and adapts to the ability of those riding with him.

Wow, what a ride! We really enjoyed cycling with Vishwa - he showed us an incredible route with amazing views and a real insight into local rural life. He was so friendly and regularly checked we were enjoying the ride and tailored it to our level. Can't recommend him enough, either for this ride or the others he offers in Sri Lanka.

We had an absolute blast biking through Hanthana with Vishwa! It’s a great escape from the noise and chaos of Kandy, and Vishwa is an awesome guide, accomodating our level of riding ability, and helping us navigate the technical descents and climbs. Even though weather prevented us from getting a great view, this was still one of the highlights of our trip, so I can only imagine what a memorable experience this would be on a clearer day. If you’re in Kandy, make sure you book this experience with Vishwa! You’ll have the time of your life while challenging yourself physically, and seeing some awesome sights.

I had a fantastic ride with Vishwa and it will definitely be one of the top highlights of my trip. From the beginning his communication was great and prompt, I was staying slightly outside of Kandy but because it was just me he organised to meet me out there and we started the ride from my accommodation which was great, but also meant we rode a lot of hills! We rode around the Hantana Ranges, through tea fields with lots of climbing, rocky descents and some technical bits it was well tailored to my experience. Vishwa was very knowledgeable, pointing out and explaining many things. We stopped at a local stall for traditional snacks and tea, and again later for a refreshing king coconut. If you are a keen cyclist like me I can't recommend this enough, the bike was good and the trails and views even better. Vishwa is very passionate about mountain biking and trying to help grow the sport in his country, and I wish him all the best in doing so. Thanks again mate!

Vishwa has done more than 80 biking tours in Kandy when we met us. He’s very experienced and suited to lead such a tour. Since we are beginners in biking and slower than usual, Vishwa was nothing but accommodating and patient, finding a suitable route for our group. He also introduced us to very tasty local Kandy food. The trip was well organized and thought out (and Nature along the way is beautiful). He’s friendly, open minded and down to earth, I can see him get along with virtually anyone from other cultures. He’d make your Kandy experience unforgettable. Highly recommend!
