This classic backroads cycling adventure takes us through the rural heartland of Thailand, passing through tranquil countryside, quaint villages and by way of timeless temples. After a day exploring amongst the temples of Chiang Mai, we head south on our bikes, generally following the course of the Chao Phraya, the ‘River of Kings'. On our way, we discover much of Thailand's historical and cultural legacy, as we cycle through an ever-changing landscape, from the lush jungle of the mountainous north to the emerald-green rice paddies of Thailand's fertile heartland. Getting off the beaten track, with some easy dirt-road sections, we meet local villagers and also encounter highlights such as the sacred stupa of Wat Phra, the ancient capital of Sukhothai and the infamous Bridge on the River Kwai. Arriving in bustling Bangkok, we enjoy a final ride in the city's green heart and take a river cruise on a converted rice barge - a fitting finale to an unforgettable holiday.

Is this holiday for you?

SEMI SLICK ADVENTURE - The majority of the riding during this holiday is on quiet tarmac roads, with short sections on hard packed dirt trails. No off-road experience is required. Averaging around 50 kilometres per day over 11 days of cycling, this holiday takes us between Chiang Mai and Bangkok with a few short transfers in our support vehicle making this an achievable journey within 2 weeks. With the exception of Day 4 when we venture into the Maerang Hills, we will not encounter any climbs of significance and we can expect relatively gentle riding each day with the emphasis on the history, scenery and fantastic local people we will meet along the way. Regular weekend leisure cyclists and those with good general overall fitness should cope well with the demands of this holiday. This trip is fully supported and there will be a constant supply of cold drinks and fresh fruit available. We must stress that apart from the spares and tools you would take on any day ride you will not be required to carry any luggage. Excellent bike hire available locally.

This journey is run in conjunction with our Asian partners, who are specialists in running South East Asian biking experiences. Due to the global appeal of these cycling holidays adventures, the group will be an interesting, cosmopolitan mix which is an important part of the experience!
