  • How many days is the tour?

    You have 4 days and 3 nights of fun on this tour. All of which will be spent on the bike.

  • Where does the tour start and finish?

    The tour starts with a hotel pick up from your Chiang Mai hotel at 8:00am. Chiang Mai can be accessed through Chiang Mai International Airport (CNX).

    The tour will end by 5:30pm in Chiang Rai. The tour operator can drop you off at your Chiang Rai city hotel or at the Mae Fah Luang International Airport (CEI).

  • 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.

  • Can you describe the tour?

    You will ride on small local roads with little traffic and some short off-road sections. The terrain is undulating with no major climbs, but just in case, the  support vehicle is always close by. This tour is suitable for anyone with 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 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 bike hires available?

    Yes, bike hire is included in the tour. The bikes are well-known makes of hybrid or mountain bikes (depending on the tour) with lightweight alloy frames, 24- to 27-speed gearing, v-brakes and Shimano components and front suspension.

  • 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.

Incredibly well managed tour. Very impressed. Aei was an amazing guide. A true professional. So intelligent and well spoken with a wonderful friendly personality. She was great and eagerly translated for me as I stopped in the fields and at temple festivals to talk with the always smiling and welcoming farmers and local people. Mr. Thai the driver was very helpful, professional, patient and pleasant. Tam who took my booking was very remarkably prompt and efficient in responding to my questions.
