    North Thailand new options

    There have been a few enquiries about riding in Thailand so here is an update on some new options in North Thailand

    Most off road riding has focused on Doi Suthep in Chiang Mai and is very downhill focused but there are now a few more trail / big day out options..

    We just got back from 3 excellent days riding in around 2 hours NW of Chiang Mai in Mae Hong Song Province.. Lots of great single track linked by jeep tracks ..plenty of climbing but more downhill

    Check out Mojo Adventures for more information

    A few pics

    Nice. I live in CM but I haven't ridden up MHS way. Will have to sign up for a tour. I take it this is run by the same group of people as Mojo Bikes?

    Sorry no and on principle would not share if I did , the Mojo folk have put a huge effort into finding these trails and its a small business by rider for riders so suggest you book a trip with them and support their initiative to find good riding .. Logistics would be a pain too as they are mostly A-B rides so need 4x4 vehicles and drivers

    Nov-Jan is the best time to visit and temps mostly mids 20's C but will vary between 16-32 degrees C depending on cloud cover, altitude etc So I expect a good bit warmer than Alaska

    Well, yes, Im sure Thailand is warmer than Alaska. I usually go to the beach, but maybe try my bike ther to the north. I went to Chaing Mai one time, and it was blazing hot, but that might have been a heat wave or something, because all reports are the weather is as you describe, even 'cold' at night. I brought my bike to Nepal last winter and rode through the Terai for the winter. Maybe try the north of Thailand for biking
