 Sit down in your saddles ladies and gentleman as this month we are launching our brand spanking new Angkor Wat to Bangkok Cycle just in time for the Khmer New Year! To celebrate we are offering £100 off the deposit on this challenge for the departure date 04/12/2015! Simply quote ANGKOR100 at the time of booking.

So what are you waiting for?!

If you’ve ever dreamed of peddling past brightly robed monks, through vivid green jungles to follow the coastline of Thailand then this incredible new cycle Challenge could be for you! We take you 400kms in the saddle from the lotus towers of Angkor Wat deep into the heart of Cambodia, before crossing the border into mystical Thailand. This cycle incorporates the architectural phenomenonal grandeur of the ancient City of Angkor, with the beauty of the Cambodian countryside. You will need your wits about you as you dodge potholes and cows, tackle river crossings and take one hand off the handlebars to greet the locals as we wave goodbye to Cambodia and hello to Thailand, the Land of Smiles. Here we follow the stunning coastline all the way to the finish line, with a chance to revel in the crystal blue waters before our final push to bustling Bangkok…

Angkor Wat? Built between 879-1191 AD this UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the most astonishing examples of architecture worldwide and the starting point of your Challenge, our bikes offer the perfect method of transport to navigate this vast ancient city. Prepare to be blown away at the intricate detailing on every slab of the main Angkor Wat temple, the labyrinth of work is a tribute to the Khmer people that constructed these breathtaking structures. If you only explore 2 temples, one must be the Temple of Bayon with its many faces it offers a small window into 12th Century Khmer society beautifully captured in stone, including an extensive insight into everyday life. In contrast the temple of Ta Prohm offers a breathtaking contrast as it has been devoured by trees, the roots pushing their way through the stones.

Thailand’s eclectic capital is a buzzing hub of tradition, traffic and tremendous excitement as it is here we conclude our magnificent cycle. The multitude of people, sights, smells and challenge of navigating through the various forms of transport will be a shock after the peaceful kilometers of the Chantaburi coastline. Once we have reached our final destination we have chance to explore and relax in the beautiful Botanical Gardens before exploring all that Bangkok’s nightlife has to offer. It is hard not to get caught up in the magic of the capital which is why we celebrate here on the final night of our challenge.

Renowned worldwide for its white sandy beaches and crystal blue waters, Thailand’s coastline is postcard worthy throughout. After cycling a phenomenal 400kms across South East Asia it’s fair to say your legs may be pretty stiff, what better way to unwind than reward yourself with a Thai massage on the sand, watching the sunset over the Gulf of Thailand….
