I will retire in a few years and my wife and I will settle in Chiang Mai. I have been there a few times and love it but never got the chance to go riding. I have been researching it and thought that others might like to see the videos that I've found. Looks pretty good, especially around Chiang Mai. Some aren't the best quality but you get the idea.
Thanks for posting the videos. My wife is Thai and I've wanted to bring a bike with when I go for vacation. Her friends are over at the house now and know the area some of these videos were shot....interesting!
Man, watching those videos brings me back to my Chiang Mai mountain biking trip at the end of 2009. I definitely need to get back out there again. Thankfully, winter months here out west = best riding conditions there.
Also, does anyone out there know if there is a quality mountain biking scene in Chiang Rai? As much as I love the biking in CM, getting a little more off the beaten path up in Chiang Rai is appealing and I'd like to know if any companies out there are pretty good for showing you trails / providing decent bikes?
These are really attractive videos, Thailand has been in the mass tourism spotlight for quite some time, there are still plenty of places to cycle and not see any of the downsides that tourism can bring to a region. In other words, there are still plenty of places near the over-developed places that are very worth visiting.
Is anyone interested in bike tours of
the beautiful landscape that Thailand
has to offer?
I am from Australia and visiting Thailand in October
to do a yoga retreat in Koh Yao Noi. And afterU
that I was interested in doing an overnight bike
tour through Amazing Bike Tours.
My desire is to do the 3 day cycle tour of
Khao*Sok National Park.
I can't include the link but go to
The Khao Sok & Cheow Lan Lake Adventure is on during
the following dates. 16th-18th October
Amazing Bike Tours requires a minimum of
two people to put on a tour. I am very interested
and thought I would start this thread in the
hope I could reach out to others who would be
interested as well and therefore the tour would be
put on by Amazing Bike Tours.
How easy it is to find these tracks once in CM ?
I started thinking to do 1 month trip to CM this november but i cant go trough tour operators, costs too much money to cycle with them. Or is there some local club etc where one can find cycling buddies ?
