Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Phnom Penh

Arrive at the capital city of Cambodia, Phnom Penh, at the edge of the Mekong River. Historical splendors are spread in every corner whether it’s the local palace or the horrific remnants of the Khmer atrocities.

Meals: Lunch, Dinner

Day 2: Phnom Penh

We start slow with a short ride of 25km to the Mekong Island. This also includes hopping into a local ferry to get to the island and then riding past unassuming villages along the Island road. This is your first tryst with the local Cambodian culture, with silk products as the main highlight. Expect young kids to stretch their arms and give a big wave or locals inviting you into their homes. There’s no better way of knowing a country better other than shedding you inhibitions and getting local with the locals.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

Distance cycled: ~ 30km / 18mi

Day 3: Kep

Today, it’s long ride to Kep after a short transfer till out of the city streets. Ride past sprawling countryside of fields, palm trees and pepper plantations.

Day 6: Siem Reap

The Angkor temple complex is synonymous to Cambodia, so a ride around the temple is essential. We wake up early to catch the brilliant morning rays on the ancient temple complex and spend ample time photographing and roaming the grounds. Bayon, a richly decorated temple within the Angkor complex is one of the highlights here, along with the TA Prohm.

Any extras at hotel are at your expense.

Quality Bikes

When you have a road and the thrill of a journey ahead of you, it’s imperative to have a good bike to enjoy it. Most of our tours in Cambodia run on some of the best mountain bikes in the cycling tour industry. Upright position, excellent traction and optimal comfort under gravel roads are some of the characteristics.

Outstanding Food

Local food plays an integral part in experiencing the culture of region and we make sure that you get plenty of this. The inclusion of daily meals is highlighted in detailed itinerary. Drinking water and soft drinks such as juice, tea/coffee is included in your price. Alcohol is at your expense.

Charming Guides

Our most visible and perhaps most important role is played by a Trip Leader, the folks who make a trip exciting, comfortable, knowledgeable and who are able to steer you towards the real experience! In most of the trips, we have two guides riding with you. One is leading the group of riders and other is closing at the back.

Comfortable Support Van

A Van follows the group of riders throughout the trip and carries all belongings. If at any point riding seems a little hard, the van takes you for as long or as little as you wish it to. It also provides you refreshments along the way and sometimes a chilled beer.

Guaranteed to Depart Tours

We run most of our tours with minimum 2 people traveling and sometimes even with 1 person, without any extra fee. Rest assured, your trip is always guaranteed to depart. If for some reasons you don’t wish to join a tour then you can always transfer to another trip or we’ll give you a credit which you can settle against any future trip.

Entrance Fees & Transportation

Entrance fees to historic sites, museums, temples & other exclusive events and transportation from rendezvous to final drop-off is always included in your tour price. Our tour designers give as much focus on non-cycling activity as on cycling.

Deep Local Knowledge & Presence

Presence of operations in Cambodia, local associations and ad-hoc field network allows us to leverage local know-how and deliver on what is promised to you without any culture and communications barrier.

Singles Friendly

It is applicable only in cases where you want to opt for a room alone. In other cases, we will try to club you with another person, preferably of same sex. In the cases, where we don’t find a room partner, we’ll bear the extra room charges.
