Sri Lanka - tips about cycling/biking + some Qs

Hi everyone

Can anyone suggest good sited where cycling/biking might be nice and enjoyable and where I will see more Sri Lanka rather than tours full of tourists?

Also can you suggest me some trails/maps for some nice hiking trips that are 'not in Lonely Planet' (again I don't wanna encounter groups of tourists. Preferably small paths, not 'tourists highways')

- I was thinking about some villages around Ella or Knuckles or Horton Plains... suggestions? (I wanna hike for about 7days)

And.. Vegetarian - is it possible to find no-meat food? (or can you tell me what to tell them (in their language :) ) in restaurants so I explain myself clearly enough?) Worst case seafood would be possible.

Thank you!

Hi! You will find a lot of info here: http://www.lakdasun.org/

I would recommend below areas to avoid tourists:

Rakwana, Bogawanthalawa, Namunukula, Nawalapitiya, Laxapana, Knuckles etc.

I recommend Meemure, Knuckles, Horton Plains and Ohiya region, Ella, Belihul Oya and Namunukula. In addition to the lakdasun websites few details on hikes around Ohiya is the given in the following link.
