Good experience. My guide was Nary, who was very friendly and knowledgeable. The countryside was beautiful and I got to see a side to Phnom Penh I otherwise wouldn't have. One thing to note is that if you're not accustomed to the heat and humidity, it might be more draining than a 20k ride would normally be. All in all, a rewarding experience.
I had a very pleasanr day riding on trails with Grasshopper Adventures with my guide Vichet. We crossed the Mekong River by ferry and then rode the trails around the island stopping off at a silk farm. Very enlightening. We rode about 25 km seeing the rural side of Phnom Penh and then re-crossed the river on a different ferry. To end, had a Cambodian lunch . Can recomemend this the the experienced rider.
My husband and I really enjoyed this bike tour. Vichet and Pun were very fun to talk to and were also very knowledgeable guides. We were equipped with good mountain bikes, helmets, and water. We had a snack of fresh fruit before learning about silk weaving (which was amazing!). We were able to take our time there. The ride overall was not too difficult. The trail was dirt most of the time with some rocky areas. It was pretty hot!! At the end of the ride, we were given cold towels to wipe our face, cold water, and a delicious Khmer lunch. The whole activity took us from 8-1.
