A trip with the perfect balance of history, culture, adventure, great bike touring, and an opportunity to make new friends. This adventure starts in Siem Reap where we see first-hand the feat of the ancients at Angkor Wat and its accompanying temples. From there, we embark on an enjoyable cycle tour of this charming country.
We venture into the north of Cambodia the last holdout of the Khmer Rouge before peace was achieved. Here the landscapes are similar to what they were throughout the country decades ago, with sparser populations, more forest cover and red laterite roads snaking off into the distance. We pay a visit to the majestic Preah Vihear Temple atop the Dangrek Mountain Range with views over to Thailand. We see traditional farming methods still in practice and meet many friendly, hospitable people throughout the countryside. We pass through towns still sporting the remnants of French colonialism in their architecture as we discover what makes Cambodia so captivating.
Flat terrain, back roads with no traffic, great food and warm weather are all great reasons for anyone with a curiosity about Cambodia to enjoy this bike tour. If that isn't motivation enough, then a beach finish surely is.
317 Km riding. The terrain is a mix of paved and unpaved roads, tracks and trails. It is our aim to deliver as much traffic-free track and trail as possible, but at times we do need to resort to secondary roads. We spend no more than 5km over the whole tour on anything resembling a highway. The ride is easily achievable for those who are comfortable controlling a bike, with hardly any hills and no distances over 60km on any single day.
Pedal-assist E-bike is an available option for this tour for $245 surcharge.
With a local university student as our leader, explore the village industries of Battambang.
Breathe in clean forest air as we stay the night nestled near Kirirom Mountain.
Cycle through the forest of Kep National park to the sparkling coast.
Pedal past small fishing communities and emerge at the white sand and clear waters of Otres Beach.
