Our cycling journey through northern Thailand begins in the city of Chiang Rai, home to the famous White Temple which we will pedal to visit. After an exploration of the local night market, we’ll hop on our e-bikes and ride to the dramatic Chiang Dao mountain where our efforts will be rewarded with jaw-dropping views. Here we’ll have the chance to cycle our way through Pha Daeng National Park, past impressive limestone karsts and idyllic waterfalls.

The fantastic riding doesn't stop, as we make our way to the sloping landscapes of Maetang, surrounded by the idyllic scenery of Northern Thailand.

Back to two-wheels, we'll cycle our way to Chiang Mai, perhaps the most well-known city in northern Thailand. Our discovery of the city begins by delving into the local culture on a food tour showcasing the highlights of this flavorful (and often spicy!) cuisine. Our Chiang Mai adventure continues with a cycle tour of the city's peaceful outskirts, a good opportunity to burn off some of last night's feasting! We'll tour the local botanical gardens and cycle up to the iconic spiritual site of Doi Suthep, a beautiful summit made achievable for all skill levels through the use of e-bikes.

This tour encapsulates some of the best of Northern Thailand with a faithful introduction to the city of Chiang Mai, You'll finish up having had the opportunity to make genuine connections with friendly locals, enjoy some fantastic riding, and snap an album full of Thailand's bucolic northern landscapes.

313 km / 194 mi riding. There is no hiding it, Northern Thailand is a hilly place, which is exactly why we have made use of e-bikes to smooth out the experience. If you're in the mood for a challenge you can dial back the pedal-assist, then when you want a little help up the hills simply turn it up.

In designing this tour we balanced scenic riding with moderate hills, and then through optimal use of the support vehicles and e-bikes, we’ve set you up for the best riding without much grinding. At least 90% of this ride is on the tarmac, you can expect some uphill, but more regular downhill and quite a lot of undulating, rolling hills. If you would like to know more, request an elevation profile from our team.

What our Guests Say

Day to Day


Welcome to Chiang Rai! We’ll start our tour by meeting in the lobby at 10 am ready to head out and explore this interesting Northern city. Our loop ride along the Kok river takes us pedaling through the region's bucolic countryside, past coffee and tea plantations, local communities and riverside fields.

We'll stop for a quick look at the local pineapple market, with produce so fresh from the surrounding farms that it often sells out early in the day! Our first day's ride drops us right back at the hotel door and you can spend the afternoon at your leisure. Tonight we’ll enjoy the first of many delicious Thai dinners after a walking tour of the lively Night Bazaar.


We’ll start off the morning with a ride through the backroads and fields. On the way, we will stop and visit a locally-based coffee house known as Akha Mino Roastery, a successful business helping local hill tribe communities start sustainable coffee plantations. The owner will take us through the growing and roasting process, and everything that goes into making a great coffee before we try it for ourselves. We will also have lunch here. 

After a delicious local meal, we will start pedaling to the city’s iconic White Temple. Wat Rong Khun, constructed in 1997, is an unconventional piece of Thai architecture that looks like something out of an ice kingdom and is sure to spark your interest. After our visit, we'll use the van for a transfer back to our hotel. Enjoy the rest of the day in your beautiful resort. 


Our morning begins with a 1h20 transfer by van to Bha Tai Pier where we will board a longtail boat for a ride up the Kok river, avoiding the hilliest terrain outside of Chiang Rai to Tha Ton district. This is the perfect time to sit back and enjoy the scenery as your guide shares more about the surrounding region. From here we mount the bikes and head south, reaching further and further into Thailand’s rural landscapes, riding through local communities on quiet roads surrounded by greenery. 

A nourishing lunch is followed by a transfer through the hills to our destination, the mountainside town of Chiang Dao. In the evening, we'll enjoy a good meal made with fresh local ingredients and a cold beer.


Today is the day the mountains of Northern Thailand truly shine! We begin with a 1-hour transfer into the hills of the Araksa Tea Plantations for a cup of their finest brew to settle ourselves for the ride ahead. Astride your wheels today we'll be exploring the district of Mae Taeng.

Our ride consists of several short sharp hills, but this is where e-bikes are able to lighten the load so you can enjoy the glorious views and downhill cruising, without stressing about the uphill sections. If you feel like giving your legs a challenge then you can always dial back the pedal-assist. A support van is always on hand, as it is throughout the tour if you feel like you need a rest. Our ride concludes with a final 30-minute transfer to skip traffic and arrive at our destination.


Let’s saddle up on our bikes and start the ride to Chiang Mai! Today the hills are in our favor as we pedal down to meet the scenic Ping River. From here, the route is quite flat and a welcome respite from the previous climbing, allowing you to enjoy the views from over your handlebars. 

Upon our arrival in Chiang Mai, we’ll check into our delightful resort before taking part in an afternoon cooking class and getting truly hands-on with traditional northern Thai cuisine. This is an experience that keeps on giving, in addition to enjoying all the delicious dishes you prepare, you can take your new-found skills home with you and share your favorite Thai specialties with family and friends. 


Today we’ll make our way on two wheels through the surroundings of Chiang Mai, cycling through the countryside, temple and over mild hills to a botanical garden. 

After a tour of the botanical garden’s vibrant hues and sweet fragrances, we will make our way back along scenic roads to the hotel, where you'll have time to enjoy the pool or another well-earned Thai massage before our evening activity. 

Tonight we enjoy our last evening together and give our taste buds a workout on a food tour of the city, and you'll likely have worked up a healthy appetite from today's adventures! We’ll make our way through this famous northern city to hole-in-the-wall local restaurants, markets, and bars to try authentic dishes such as red curry, spicy papaya salad, classic pad thai, and mango sticky rice. Is your mouth watering yet? Along the way, we’ll meet countless friendly Thai locals, likely curious about your adventures, and you'll have the opportunity to trade stories with these people in the “Land of Smiles”. 


For our final day of adventure in Northern Thailand. Grab a good breakfast before cycling up from your hotel to the imposing Doi Suthep, the mountain that sits to the west of the city. 

We'll ascend quite quickly, following the main road and stopping along to catch the view. We continue to the main temple Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep where our cycling concludes. 

This is a beautiful temple with some lovely sweeping views over the city and countryside, we will enjoy it before boarding the vans, with a mountain-grown coffee in hand. The tour concludes at checkout time which is 12 noon.
