    Good sense of adventure there, should be cleaner air by then and plenty of accommodation choices to choose from.

    Being a newbie to the CM area always looking for an excuse to get out and ride in this beautiful country - remind the forum crew closer to your arrival.

    Best Regards,
    Kev

    Paul,

    It would help if you can indicate what type of riding (roads, dirt, mix, etc.) you are interested in and what type/size of bikes, you and your mates riding skills and how many days you are going to be in Thailand/Chiangmai.

    Maybe also good to know that in June the rainy season will have started and, depending on how much rain we get in June, this may affect the type of riding

    Cheers,

    Auke

    I am also going for my first ever trip to CNX in June. Over the last few months i have aked all the questions (both sensible and dumb) which will be going through your minds. If you spend a few minutes and search against my posts I am sure you will find the answers to many of the questions going through your minds right now

    Enjoy the planning and the execution

    Of note with renting a bike - you have to return the bike to the place you got it from, in order to get your passport back. No bike return = no passport return. So that will hamper your cross border plans somewhat.
    Take your time & do a bit more research on GT Rider & you should find "all" you need to know.
