Take two wheels across Thailand’s south, a place of ancient jungle, imposing mountains, seductive coasts and incredible marine life.
The road is laid out before you on this cycling adventure through Southern Thailand. Beginning in Bangkok with an overnight train, the route sweeps south to the deeply green prehistoric scenery that lies across the map – stunning ancient forests and limestone peaks that were formed hundreds of millions of years ago. Pass emerald waters where tiny islands of exquisite pale rock break the surface, cruising along palm-fringed routes lined with friendly locals. Pedal along undulating roads to unforgettable Khao Sok National Park, walk along dirt trails in search of wildlife, and freewheel down the Andaman Coast to relax on its powdered coastline. Ride inland to Phang Nga Bay and finish up in the classic beachside town of Ao Nang. This active nine-day journey gives a unique look at this fascinating part of the country.

To complete this trip it is important that you are both confident and competent in riding a bicycle.
While the cycling distances are relatively short and the terrain relatively flat, the climate is usually warm, so you'll need to be reasonably fit. Keep in mind the support vehicle will always be on hand if you need a break.
The riding is mostly done on sealed roads, with the occasional gravel cycle path, so there are no special technical skills required. However, some downhill practice is a great idea prior to your trip.
Please note that both cycling and driving distances may vary due to local circumstances out of our control.
There’s the possibility of a few hiccups along the way – a puncture here and there maybe – but there’s no doubt this is an incredibly rewarding adventure.
The weather in this region varies seasonally. Be prepared to get sweaty, and for the occasional rainstorm which may require a change of plans.

This trip is a good combination of exercise and relaxation. The roads were excellent. We mostly ride thru the jungle so it is very green. Seeing Bangkok thru the back-alleys was fascinating and difficult to do without a guide. On our time off, we had the opportunity to play with elephants, relaxe on one of the most beautiful beach and hike in the jungle where one can see monkeys and all sorts of bugs and swim in the river. This trip is for the nature lover,

I am 65 and this was my first cycling adventure. You do require a good / high level of fitness to make the ride enjoyable as there are a couple of days of riding in "hilly country side". No two days are the same which adds to the enjoyment of the adventure. The bikes supplied by "Mr Black" were of an excellent standard and well maintained. The highlight of the trip was the great support from the Team Leader (Seen) and his support crew - nothing was an issue for them. If you are considering a cycle trip - this is a must to put on you list.
