Day 3, Sun 06 Dec 2015

Day 3: Sightseeing in Angkor Wat (approximately 30kms cycling)

What better way to start the trip than by exploring Angkor Wat on two wheels! Once there, climb the steep and narrow steps of the central spire for an awe-inspiring view of the whole temple, surrounded by jungle. From the temple, you continue by bike on a tour through Cambodia’s ancient history with many temples and ruins along the way. Overnight in Siem Riep.

Day 4, Mon 07 Dec 2015

Day 4: Battambang (approximately 90kms)

Rise and shine early for a 90-minute transfer to Svay Sisaphone, from where today’s ride begins. The first 30kms will be on a main road, before heading off-road and onto smaller paved routes. Keep your eyes peeled for mountain views, fields of corn and rice and the contrasting architecture of ethnic Khmer homes and village farms. Our destination is Battambang, a sleepy colonial city. Overnight in hotel.

Day 5, Tue 08 Dec 2015

Day 5: Pailin (approximately 90kms)

Prepare for the toughest ride so far as sections of the road are bumpy and riddled with potholes. In addition, look out for cows who may be crossing the road ahead! The ride passes through rice fields and along the Cardamom Mountains. There’s another 40km before lunch, where we stop for a well-earned rest. More hills follow, before a final downhill into Pailin where we overnight.

Day 6, Wed 09 Dec 2015

Day 6: Chanthaburi (approximately 47kms)

It’s a short ride on scenic roads towards the quiet rural border crossing, where we pass through immigration and stop for lunch. Thai guides will join us with new bikes on the other side. From here we pass through trickier terrain along the Thai countryside, en route to Chanthaburi. Pack swimwear and flip flops for a refreshing beach stop along the way. Overnight in hotel.

Day 7, Thu 10 Dec 2015

Day 7: Rayong (approximately 80kms)

Another challenging day ahead, as we head out along the panoramic road to Kung Wiman Bay. The cycling will be tough, but the payoff is the landscape you pass through – coastal roads fringed by casuarinas trees, forest-covered hills and mangrove swamps. We will also pass by fruit orchards, rubber plantations and fishing communities. Overnight in hotel.

Day 8, Fri 11 Dec 2015

Day 8: Bangkok (approximately 75 kms)

Today is the final day of cycling – but it’s not over, until it’s over! It’s a challenging ride along the coastline, before a welcome break at the Noong Nooch Botanical Gardens. From here you head for Thailand’s infamous capital, for a fantastic celebratory dinner and Bangkok’s vibrant nightlife. Overnight in hotel.

Day 9, Sat 12 Dec 2015
