About this Cycle Tour

Welcome to the cultural confluence of South East Asia, Chiang Mai. An ancient walled city, where life among the temple laden streets moves at its own pace. Surrounded on all sides by jungle strewn mountains, Chiang Mai is also known amongst the local riding community, as the secret cycling capital of Asia.

Itinerary

Day 1

Arrival to Chiang Mai International Airport (CNX) and transfer to our accommodation, where our mechanic booth and service team will be available in the courtyard. Light snacks and refreshments will be served at our welcome briefing, before a warm-up ride.

Day 2

Today we ride an enhanced section of the famous Chiang Mai Masters race. This classic stage through the Samoeng National Park is also one of the most scenic rides in Thailand. It is popular with local riders and being a Sunday, we will see plenty...

Day 3

South of Chiang Mai, we ride to Mae Wang National park, squeezed between the foothills of Inthanon and Ob Khan national parks. This ride is rollings, but with some short sharp climbs past four serene Buddha statues.

Day 4

The queen stage. We travel north east towards the Golden Triangle and across the steep barrier range that separates Thailand and Myanmar. Extra layers will likely be needed, as we climb a total ascent of almost 5000m...

Day 5

Our return ride to Chiang Mai environs will take a different route, no less scenic, but cutting both distance and climbs. It would be a crime not to stop and sample some of the many coffee shops along the route...

Day 6

Our ride today is an easy leg spinner, in preparation for tomorrow's big climb, following the majestic Ping river through lowlands to the south of the city, past rice paddies and local farms.

Day 7

Known as ‘The Roof of Thailand’, Doi Inthanon is the highest peak in the Kingdom, and home to the annual Doi Inthanon Challenge, which attracts up to 7500 brave riders looking to conquer the ultimate Thai KOM.

Day 8

The time has finally come to say farewell, and after breakfast together, the team will transfer you and your bike to the airport for onward travel.
