  • How many days is the tour?

  • Where does the tour start and finish?

    The tour starts and finishes in Chiang Mai. The tour operator will provide hotel pick up and drop off

    Chiang Mai can be accessed via Chiang Mai International Airport (CNX).

  • How many riders will be in the group? And what is the minimum age to join?

    We can't say for certain how many will be joining. However to keep the tour personal the maximum number of participants is 16 and minimum is 2.

    Minimum age to join is 0 years old

  • Can you describe the tour?

    You will ride on small back roads with little traffic and some short off-road sections. The terrain is flat, but just in case, a support vehicle is always close by. This tour is suitable for families and anyone with minimum biking experience.

    The trip is fully supported and your guide’s expert knowledge of the area and terrain means that you always know what is coming up in terms of distance and difficulty. This makes a tremendous difference, as does the constant supply of cold drinks and fresh fruit.

    Suitability: This tour is suitable for riders with some biking experience. You can expect a fairly gentle ride each day with none of the distances being overly long. There are a few small hills, but these can be tackled by anyone with even a moderate amount of fitness. The emphasis on this tour is Thailand’s scenery off the beaten track.

    Biking Conditions: This trip is a mixture of wide, hard-packed dirt trails, single tracks and smooth tarmac. An air-conditioned bus travels behind the group to provide support, and participants can cycle as much or as little as they like and still enjoy the same views as the rest of the group.

  • Are bikes included?

    Yes, bike hire is included in the tour. Child bikes and tag-along bikes (for ages 5-11, max weight: 38 kg/85 lb) are available. Adult must be an experienced rider to pull a tag-along and preferably have experience with tag-alongs.

  • Are helmets included when hiring a bike?

    Yes, if you're hiring a bike from the operator, a complimentary helmet is provided, although you are welcome to bring your own if you wish.

Well tailored family tour of Chiang Mai countryside. Fun activities for all off us. eg. Elephant home, limestone waterfall climbing and Chiang Dao caves.

Wonderful tour especially the guides

Wonderful tour for a family of five (kids 8, 13 and 14) - mixed just enough biking, with just the right amount of organized activities with just the right down time. What made it however, was the excellent guide (Ji) and driver (Mr. Pong). Ji (guide) was perfect in everyday–super informed, just-right helpful, really fun to be with, loved the kids and vice versa. And Mr Pong looked after us and our bikes without a hiccup!
