Bhutan has everything you want in a cycle tour; history, culture, good food, mostly tarmac roads in excellent condition, sweeping, long (30k+) descents.

Biking is the best way to see any country as it stimulates all of your senses like no other way of traveling. The contact with the people of the country visited is much easier. Love seeing how the people live, the kids going to school, what's growing in their fields, etc and this is the best way to do it. After a day of biking it is wonderful to be able to eat anything you want and a comfortable hotel is very much appreciated.
