Good fun at Khao Kheow yesterday, but the heat was oppressive! Yesterday was some kind of Chinese holiday and all the Chinese temples and cemeteries were packed. Resulted in pretty mad traffic. I rode down so got there before the guys who drove- [TABLE=class: ncode_imageresizer_warning, width: 800] [TR] [TD=class: td2][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] Nice and green in Khao Kheow and the air was clean and clear- from the summit we could see all the way to the sea. Dario has been riding for a while and is very fit but he'd never done any real off-road and after dropping his bike a few times the heat quickly caught up with him- I was pretty worried about him- he was in bad shape! But we doused him in water from our hydration packs and got him to a nearby little shop/restaurant where I hosed him down and stuck him under a fan and eventually he recovered Discovered a new single track that was VERY challenging- Yes, there actually is a trail, but it's pretty hard to see! Reckon the forest will reclaim it soon if no one rides it- Lots of fun 4wd tracks in Khao Kheow- I was really surprised when we actually encountered a couple big utes in the forest- it's pretty hard core terrain! Lunch in the wonderfully cool Khao Kheow Country Club (so nice of them to let dirty sweaty bikers into their lovely club house) Once we cooled down we headed out for another blast- Dario on the Rock Garden Trail, Khao Kheow, Chonburi, Thailand Poor Dario was absolutely exhausted- we took turns helping him through the tough bits- Home sweet home! Tough challenging fun day!
