DAY 1Arrival

Upon arrival, your bikes will be fitted before you depart for a warm up ride around Chiang Mai, allowing you to explore the area.

Today's cycling is between 30-50km (dependent on arrival times).

DAY 2Chiang Mai - Lampang

Cycle along an old highway and explore one of the oldest Chedis in Thailand which has high religious importance. Built in 1044, the Wat Phra That Hariphunchai is a gold Chedi with spectacular attention to detail. You'll then move onto a slightly challenging climb, leading to the cowboy town of Lampang, where horse and carriages are still in use as a form of transport.

Today's cycling is approximately 120km.

DAY 3Lampang - Uttaradit

Fill yourself up at breakfast and prepare for a challenging day! You'll conquer not one, not two but three sets of hills today with a large ride distance. The ascents can get steep so don't peak too early, although the rustic scenery of forests are there to keep you calm throughout. You'll see and feel a true sense of Thailand, cycling past incredible temples, a huge gold reclining Buddha statue and serene and peaceful countryside.

Today's cycling is approximately 145km.

DAY 4Uttaradit - Sukhothai

Today you'll ride away from the tourist trail and commercial Thailand to discover hidden country roads. This undiscovered route is sheltered by palm trees, providing you with some much appreciated shade. Cycling to Thailand's first capital, Sukhothai, you'll pass through luscious rice paddies, secluded villages and truly authentic Thailand.

Today's cycling is approximately 90km.

DAY 5Sukhothai

Immerse yourself in another universe at this UNESCO World Heritage Sight. Composed of 193 ruins and countless Buddha statues, which are protected by three moats and four bridged gateways, this site is sure to impress. Cycling will be the best way to explore this ancient city, however you are welcome to have a day off in Sukhothai if you wish.

Today's cycling is approximately 30km.

DAY 6Sukhothai - Kampaeng Phet

Another day of natural beauty prevails today as you cycle to Khampeng Phet, previously known as the "Diamond Wall City". This former military fortress is dressed in moss and flowers, giving it an interesting juxtaposition given its former use.

Today's cycling is approximately 85km.

DAY 7Kampaeng Phet – Nakornsawan

Today you'll see how and why Thailand is renowned for its rice exportation en route to Nakorn Sawan, which takes you through the heart of Thai countryside. Peel your eyes for water buffalo and ducks taking a dip. This is an area of Thailand which is not visited by many tourists, so you will pique the interest of locals (especially if you tell then you have ridden from Chiang Mai!) and it is a good opportunity to stop and say Sawadee! .

Today's cycling is approximately 130km.

DAY 8Nakorn Sawan - Singburi

The scenery will switch between countryside and towns, which are a little more built up, as we draw closer to Bangkok. This will be a welcome change, but we will still find tine to stop in Ang Thong and appreciate the beauty of the 60 foot Buddha statue that resides there. 

Today's cycling is approximately 145km.

DAY 9Singburi - Ayutthaya

Today's cycling will take you to another historical park and UNESCO World Heritage Site, the former capital of Ayutthaya, Siam. It was capital for 400 years but was sacked by the Burmese around 1767. Prepare to be amazed by some truly magnificent temples. The town lies along the Chao Phraya River and our hotel for the night is located on its banks.

Today's cycling is approximately 90km. 

DAY 10Ayutthaya - Bangkok

The final day of cycling will take us to Bangkok, whilst for the last leg of cycling, we'll discover Bang Pa-In, the former summer residence of King Chulakorn. After a transfer to Thailand's current capital it's time for a final farewell dinner with the group to celebrate your achievements over the last 9 days!

Today's cycling is approximately 60km.

DAY 11Departure

Today you have free time to explore Bangkok before saying goodbye to your fellow cyclists and continue your onward travel.



Our ride from the north to the centre of Thailand snakes its way through areas undiscovered by virtually any tourist. Cycling on some of the most secluded and local roads in Thailand, we will pass through village after village unaccustomed to tourism. Witness first hand the simple life of Thailand’s countryside with the tranquility of rural Thailand that can only be experienced on 2 wheels.

The ride is challenging with climbs out of the countryside and long distances but you will be rewarded with some of the most picturesque and remarkable scenery anywhere in Asia.


The dry season runs from November to June, with little if any rain expected throughout the region for much of this time. This makes cycling a real pleasure during these months, especially early in the year when the weather becomes very warm. Cycling can still be enjoyed from May to June during the early parts of the rainy season as the rains tend to be short downpours. August and September are usually too wet to cycle. 


Your accommodation will be in a mixture of hotels, homestays, resorts and boutique residences.  
You will be met and collected at Chiang Mai International Airport to begin your ride and transferred to Suvarnabhumi Airport, just outside Bangkok for your return flights.  
Your trip will include all meals which consist of fresh, local cuisine but arrangements can be made if you have any particular dietary requirements. Bottled water as well as local fruits and refreshments are provided on all cycling days.

Alternatively, if you would like to do this tour privately, this can be arranged, just ask our cycling experts.    
You will have a well trained and knowledgeable guide who will carry a comprehensive first-aid kit. In the unlikely case of any medical emergency that requires a hospital, there is ground transportation on hand to provide assistance and a local speaking support team.
