Conditions that may affect grading when going cycling in Sri Lanka

We have taken the following 6 factors into consideration when outlining the grading :

  • Cycling distance

  • Average altitude and altitude gain and loss

  • Trail conditions

  • Level of backpacking required

  • Temperature range and likely weather conditions

  • Level of humidity (can jump from 70% to 90% very easily)

  • Remoteness to services and general level of comfort

With the grading, we want to provide you with an overall indicator that helps you to compare one ride against another. However, kindly note that we are unable to give absolutely specific gradings as there are various factors contributing to the trail and weather conditions when going cycling in Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka Cycling Tours: Weather Conditions in Sri Lanka

In the lowlands, the climate is tropical with an average temperature of 27° Celsius, whereas the central highlands are much cooler, with temperatures dropping down to 14C. The south-east monsoon brings the rain to the western, south western and central regions from May to July, while the north-western monsoon occurs in the north and east in December and January. Sri Lanka generally boasts of a good climate for traveling throughout the year.

We are always looking to constantly improve our services and create new excursions that make you want to come back over and over again to experience a ride in this wondrous land with its 2500-year-old history and colourful traditions.

Soft Grading

Ideal for leisure riders. Although predominantly on dirt roads, these trails may also be on short and easy off-road sections. Mainly on flat and very gentle slopes. Usually, these types of trails are short in duration and done at lower altitudes; often they are optional, providing a rest day in between the tour. You would usually ride for 4 to 5 hours during a specific day.

Moderate Grading

These trials are designed for cyclist who rides regularly as a means of exercise. Most people who enjoy a weekend of cycling in the hills or mountains at home are capable of undertaking a trail of this level. Along the way, there are a variety of gentle off-road routes with very few technical sections. However, we can always provide you with the option of taking a more difficult section, an alternative route on an easier route, or travel in the backup vehicle. You would usually ride for 5-7 hours a day and moderate elevation difference may occur.

Hard/Pro Grading

For trails which entail professional and technical sections, fitness is the most important component and you may have to improve yours before the start of the expedition. These sections are usually located at significantly higher altitudes and with substantial elevation differences. Some routes are designed with tough single trails that would require the utmost competence. You would ride for 7-9 hours per day.
