    I am planning to ride up to cm tomorrow for a few days of sport riding. I would like to know how the roads are around the loop? Anything to be avoided etc.

    thanks

    y99, i did the loop two days ago.. all in good nick... on start of loop going out from 121 about 1.5k in there is a bit of light gravel on road where quarry trucks pull out otherwise no issues... if you go further a field like 118/ 107 they are in good condition however avoid 118 if its wet.. glazed shiny stuff like weaering socks on a freshly waxed floor...

    For the MHS loop I think generally it should all be ok.
    Mae Malai - Pai gets a bit bumpy n places
    Pai - Soppong -MHs - Khun Yuam is pretty much race track surface.
    Khun Yuam - Mae Sarieng - Kong Loi is not as good.
    Kong Loi - Hot is sometimes patchy asphalt up on the ridge line
    Hot - Chomthong should just about be all 4-lane now.
    Chomthong - Cnx = fast 4 lane dual carriageway.

    Enjoy. There is a lot of cloud cover & showers around.

    Take it easy. No rush. Ride to return....you've got nothing to prove. Check your tyres & air pressure before you set off.
