There were four people on our tour. I had never been on single track before (I thought the description on the website of "through the jungle" meant on a paved path). Our guide, Mr. Rith was astoundingly patient with our small group, of which only one seemed to know how to handle a sandy track. While I was challenged, I was thrilled to be able to take the road-less-travelled and see parts of the Angkor complex tourists rarely see.
Mr. Rith was our tour guide, cycle guide and mechanic. The bicycles were in good condition. For comfort, we brought our own bicycle seats with us and Mr. Rith installed them to the rental mountain bicycles.
There is so much to see in the Angkor complex. I think we saw 7 temples, all with their own character. We rode through small towns and alongside farming in action. We climbed a mountain and took a boat ride down a river to the biggest lake in Cambodia. Keep an eye out for butterflies, roadside flowers and water buffalo.

The guide was a "biking library" of information about Angkor Wat and a myriad of other temples in the area. Through him, I have begun to understand the Khmer Empire of which Angkor Wat is a part of. That expertise was exactly what I was looking for. The driver was excellent. After a couple of stops he knew exactly what kind of water beverage I like and had it ready.

Brilliant way to see rural Cambodia and the Temples. Our guide Hey Heng and Spice Roads rep Satea (apologies for spelling of their names!) were absolutely brilliant and managed our group of 4 ladies very bravely! Hey was rightly very proud of his beautiful country and we were very spoilt with the food and drinks provided.
Recommend to any cyclist weak or strong.

Wendy, Trish and I would like to thank you all for our tour of the temples, it was an experience we shall treasure forever.
The guys who put up with us were amazing! Tour guide Mr. Heng ( Hey ) was really jacked up with information and had a great sense of humor,
The tour was well thought out, the food drinks and snacks were perfect for this kind of tour . Satea was very helpful especially to Trish who was often left at the back. He was really sweet to her.
Our driver was always in the right place and the right time.
We will send you photos when we arrive back in South Africa.
Looking forward to my Bangkok ride tomorrow. I am hoping it is a long way from this traffic!

Guide was AMAZING! We had a neat group of 7 people, and I think he met the needs of us all. His knowledge about the temples was great, but more interesting by far was his willingness to share about Cambodia over the last 35 years, his own and his family's life experiences, and the realities of living in Cambodia. Highlights were the stop at the Palm / Rice factory, the trip out to the floating village and the cycling on the first day- shady and quiet. I'm already creating a wish list for my next trip.
