    Cycling in Vietnam

    I will be visiting, and possibly relocating to, Vietnam.

    Anyone have any insight in cycling in Vietnam -- opportunities/quality of road riding and XC mountain biking or even availability of bike shops with higher quality products?

    wow, 4 replies and all spams!

    Old thread, but info maybe good for some thinking about mtb in Vietnam.

    Regarding mountain biking, in term of trail design for mountain biking purpose only, there are none that I know of. Most of the trails we rode on are trails created by locals for going back and forth into their farms, which meant the trail are fairly easy to ride, no crazy drops or large rocks.... The good news is there are a lot of this kind of trail everywhere.

    I don't do road riding, but the road riding crowd are much much larger in Vietnam compare to the mtb crowd. Beware that when you do road riding in Vietnam, you will be sharing road with large trucks and buses flying at top speed with horn blaring.

    As for parts and bike shops, there are more for road bike than for mountain bike. But don't expect any bike shop in Vietnam to work on your fancy suspension fork btw.
