Wilds of Cambodia
From Cambodia's capital of Phnom Penh you'll ride to the Gulf of Thailand and the former resort town of Kep, then cycle along the coastline through quaint fishing villages. After a day at the beach you'll head north to the Cardamom mountains and overnight at a Community Based Eco-Tourism (CBET) project that is offering locals an alternative living to logging and hunting. Here you'll ride on single track trails before cycling further north to an eco-lodge that boasts the nearby Tatai waterfall. Next you'll leave Cambodia and ride into Thailand; you'll be on the coastline of the Kingdom's narrowest strip. The tour draws to an end at the sandy beaches of Koh Chang island.

What's the trip like?
You will ride 460 km on a mixture of tarmac roads in reasonable repair, vehicle width dirt trails, and some single track. Most of the rides are on flat terrain, with a few rolling hills towards the end of the tour, and on quiet back roads. The tour operator tries to avoid the highways where possible.
Suitability: This trip has been designed to be easy with flat riding, but there are variations in the surfaces. This trip can be done by anyone of a reasonable fitness level. A support truck is always available to help when required, with the exception of Day 4.
Biking Conditions: The roads are a mixture of tarmac, broken tarmac, vehicle-width dirt roads, and single track trails. The distances aren't overly long and can be handled by those with basic fitness levels. Some off-road experience is suggested to enjoy the day riding in Chi Phat.

Is there a minimum age for this tour?
Yes, riders must be 18 years old by the time the tour starts.
Can I rent a bike for the tour?
Yes, quality mountain bikes can be hired for the duration of the tour.
The bikes are well-known makes with lightweight alloy frames, 24 to 27 speed gears, v-brakes, have Shimano components and front suspension.
Am I safe?
The tour leader is trained in first aid and emergency rescue. But to a large degree, riders must be responsible for their own safety during the tour. It is therefore compulsory that you take out travel insurance that will cover you for a cycling tour.
Do I have to pay if travelling alone?
You are not required to pay a surcharge for travelling alone. The tour operator will arrange for you to share accommodation with another traveller of the same gender. If you cannot be matched, they will provide a single room at no extra charge. If you prefer not to share, a single supplement is payable to guarantee your own room.
