Head phones are recommended to listen to the audio information, but we strongly advise against riding with them. Please note that a fully charged battery on your mobile device is very important for this tour. If your battery is low please let our staff know and they will provide you with a power bank for your adventure.
We provide well maintained, top quality imported GT mountain bikes with hydraulic disc brakes, a helmet and reusable sports water bottle for you to explore the city. These bikes come with a secure phone holder and a bike lock.
Optionally we are also able to offer Women’s specific frames. The Cannondale Adventure Women’s bike offers a more upright ‘cruising’ style position while still incorporating front suspension in a weight saving frame with a wide range of gears. Easy ground reach also makes for a more confident ride for those less familiar with regular mountain bike frames. Please select this option when making your online booking and our team will confirm availability.

Gather at the Grasshopper Shop
Your tour will begin at the Grasshopper Adventures Office. You are free to pick your own start time (until 3.00pm). Please bring your fully charged mobile device, as well as any personal camera and sunscreen. We recommend that you wear active sports clothing or at least something light and comfortable. Please dress considerately, as you may like to visit a temple, in which case you should have your shoulders and knees covered.
Our helpful staff will assist you in downloading our self-guided App onto your mobile device, if you do not have a device available, please ask at the shop to use one of our own (at an additional rental fee of USD $5).
Our staff will then issue you with your perfectly sized bicycle and helmet, then give a clear cycle and road safety talk before you begin. Please listen carefully.
Once you leave the Grasshopper shop, it is over to you. We have provided "20+ points of Interest" to choose from on our 13km route. After hearing our Audio introduction, you can visit them all, stopping to explore and immerse yourself in learning about Cambodian life, or only visit a few that peak your interest. Stop wherever you please, it's your tour.
Use our local knowledge to try some delicious street noodles, visit iconic buildings, pick up a coffee and mingle with the young Khmer middle classes. Discover Farm to Table initiatives. Experience how Cambodian's live their lives in Phnom Penh, through work, rest and play.
This tour can be completed in as little as 2 hours, or it can take you all day!
Ideal start time.
You are free to choose your own start time. But there are preferable times of day that we would recommend to avoid 'rush hour' and riding in the dark. 0800am - 0900am is 'rush hour' in the city, and you do not have lights on your bike so it's safe to be back before it gets dark at 1800pm.
This tour is available from 0700am - 1500pm, every day of the week.
