Loose Riders Travel is a rider owned mountain bike tour operator specialising in gravity trips in Asia. In the following press release gives you some inspiration for your next bike trip.

From endless flowing singletrack to super gnarly downhill lines and everything in-between. Asia has it all and at world-class level. Come and ride the best trails the region has to offer, experience the local culture, breathtaking scenery, amazing cuisine and chilled out vibe.


Based on the Loose Riders network and philosophy and backed up by the region’s very best partners and guides.

To kick off one of our new packages (Thailand – Indonesia), we invited VinnyT and the Shaperideshoot crew to come out and sample the goods. Happy to escape winter in Europe, they packed up their bikes and joined us on a two-week adventure across Thailand and Indonesia to ride some of the best trails the region has to offer, experience the local culture, breathtaking scenery and chilled out vibe.

Our Thailand – Indonesia Package is the star in our lineup! On this trip we will: catch 6 flights, visit 2 countries, pass 1 timezone, cross the equator, see vastly different cultures and ride everything from hot tropical jungle, cool mountaintops, volcano crater rims to man-made bike parks and top is all off with some surfing and chill time on the beach.

Loose Riders Travel was founded by Tim Soeten and Taner Yalcin. Tim is the driving force behind Loose Riders Global Alliance.

After extensively traveling Asia for over 25 years and settling down in Thailand over a decade ago, Tim’s passion for riding bikes and travel is what started LRGA and now Loose Riders Travel.
As a licensed MTB Guide/Coach from Germany, Taner started exploring rideable trails in the Himalayas over 15 years ago. Based in Thailand for over a decade he follows his passion and surveys trails around Asia to find new riding spots and bike travel destinations.
