What do we do?
In addition to having two bicycle (rent, sale and repair) shops in Ho Chi Minh City (district 1 and 7), Mr Biker Saigon is a company organizing from day trips to weeks-long trips, organized or custom-made as well as group or private tours for all types of levels, ages and nationalities (our team speaks several languages!). We aim for our customers to experience the Real Vietnam by bicycle.
Everyone would agree that traveling through the few biggest popular attractions of a country with a bus full of tourists, would perhaps give you a quick overview of what the nation is about but it would never give you the authentic experiences of local encounters, authentic gastronomy, local knowledge sharing, cultural differences and the natives’ lifestyles but cycling enables it.
Traveling by bicycle means a qualitative trip instead of a quantitative one in a sense that it means experiencing every part of the trip at 100% instead of seeing the maximum number of cities in a limited amount of time.
Cycling makes you a story teller. By taking the time to travel by bicycle you will get to observe the world around you and will have thousands of stories to tell your friends! Moreover, your heart will be filled with touching local encounters and saying goodbye might be tough sometimes. These memories and experiences are of unspeakable values.
Cycling makes you stronger. Of course, cycling is healthy, and this does not only apply to the 100km/day tour. Mr Biker Vietnam cannot encourage you enough to simply go out, even just for a small ride! Cycling, just like any sport, produces happiness hormones and helps relaxing, sleeping better, etc. So, as per science, cycling will make you happier!
Furthermore, on a cycling trip, the path is the goal. It will give you some time to disconnect from your daily life and even more, it will make you proud! Yes, there might be some challenges on the way but the feeling of pride when looking at a map and realizing that you managed to travel from cities to cities simply with your own strength is indescribable!
Cycling takes you to inaccessible places. Bicycles can go where buses, cars or motorbikes cannot. Traveling by bicycle means going through coffee plantations and entering rice paddies without difficulties. It also means being able to meet families living isolated in bamboo stilt houses on top of mountain accessible only via small dirt paths.
Cycling is eco-friendly. In a world where pollution reigns, it is important to make a difference and focus on ecological ways of traveling.
Small Group - 6 ladies Bike Tour along the Melong Delta November 2018
"We went on the bike tour along the Mekong Delta in late November. I am an older lady - 73 and worried about the tour a little bit. I had no reason to worry. Mr. Biker is professional, cares about his clients and thoroughly enjoyed the excursion very much. They looked after everyone whether they rode fast or slow or needed to rest. (It was pretty hot for me). Wonderful!" Dorothy
"I rent a bike for a solotour for 14 days through the Mekong Delta. The bike was perfectly equipped. I had no problems whatsoever. I booked the bike by internet and had a very good contact with Mr Biker"HLiduina
Excellent friendly service, great equipment
"Cycled HCMC to Hanoi with a rented cycle from Thai at Mr Biker Saigon. An incredible experience made all the better with the information and assistance from Thai. After struggling to find a suitable bike elsewhere in HCMC, Thai lent me a very good Giant hybrid bike perfect for Vietnamese roads, and provided spare tubes, pumps and bar bags. With partners all up the east coast it was easy to arrange a bike service (tighten brakes/replace spoke) through WhatsApp with Thai. Thai also stored my luggage and posted it to a hostel in Hanoi a few days before I arrived. Deposit was returned without questions once I returned bike to his partner in Hanoi. Can’t recommend using Mr Biker Saigon enough. Thanks Thai and team." Peskyn

"Encontramos de casualidad Mr. Biker y nos animamos a probar el tour de 1 día en total éramos 6 y sin ninguna duda recomiendo a todo el mundo que practique deporte que lo haga, descubrimos algo que en 7 años de estancia en Vietnam nunca conoci. Una experiencia imprescindible para todos los que vengan de turismo y los que vivan en Vietnam, si te gusta la naturaleza, el deporte y pasar un día con buena gente Mr. Biker es tu opción. Nuestra guia Ms. June fue súper atenta y enfocada a que lo pasáramos bien, fue su primer tour como líder y si repetimos la pediremos a ella de nuevo. No os perdáis esta experiencia!!!"Juanjogl75

Unbeatable Bike Guide
"Thai was my bike guide in November 2014 through the Mekong Delta. I joined a large group of cyclists of varying abilities from across the UK & US. Thai was nothing short of professional & knowledgeable. He looked after us all so well, from the moment he greeted us off the plane to waving us goodbye as we made the crossing to Cambodia, making sure everyone got the best out of themselves and their experience across his corner of the world. I felt safe in Thai’s very capable hands. His organisation of the trip was faultless - the route was fantastic, attention to detail for lunch stops, hotels, condition of his bikes, support crew and his fellow guides. Thai’s encouragement, kindness, humour and friendship kept us all going strong, even when the ride got tough! I would recommend Thai without hesitation for anyone wanting to explore this beautiful corner of the globe by bike and hope that one day I can ride with Thai again. An fabulous bike tour guide - you’d be in very safe hands. Additionally, the movie he put together of our trip was a wonderful and thoughtful keepsake. Thank you Thai, “Mr Biker”"Katherine I
Perfect getaway for bustling Saigon
"We know about Mr Biker from TripAdvisor and they have good reviews, so we looked forward to a nice trip in Ma Da jungle. It was better than we expected. Their company is in the center of Saigon and easy to find. They treat us well with coffee and breakfast. The transfer to the jungle is around 2 hours and we were the only people there. It was completely off-the-beaten-track. Even though it was hot but we got nice breeze in the wood. They have good Cannondale bikes, helmets and water. 10 km on flat terrain for warming up and 10 km for the trail. The trail is perfect for me but my girlfriend struggled for a while since she is a road cyclist. There are some ups and downs, trunks, rocks on the ground so you need to focus. We rode through the jungle and it is absolutely gorgeous, well preserved and safe. After the trip, we had a nice lunch with local things and they were fresh and delicious. Things to notice when you choose this trip: make sure you have some experience on the trails and gopro (it should be on the bike or chest, not the head). This trip is a perfect way to escape the concrete jungle of Saigon. Hope to have another trip with Mr Biker. Highly recommended!"Quan N
"We found the Mr Biker from internet then decided to go there. We had limited time before long busy working week with lots of meetings. All the team did their best to use our short time efficiently. We ride unforgetable 1,5 day in HCM. At the begining traffic seems dangerous but once you start riding between motorcyles, you realize how they are respectful driver and traffic is flows fluently. Like a nice song. Riding in the heavy traffic was so exciting. We had lots of fun. So do not hesitate about it. Our bikes were professinal. We rode along the river, taste the local foods, visit lots of places such as templates, squares, war museum. In short it was amazing. Thanks to Mr Biker professional team with smiling faces."Gökhan Ç
