A few of us are travelling to Chiang Mai this weekend for a day off road. I'm trying to find maps/routes online. I have the routes from this site but we're after something with a little more off road.
Anyone out there know a good route for experienced riders?
Seems like i need to buy the MHS map. anyone know if it's available anywhere in CM?
Also, any help on a decent place to rent bikes?
I hear there's a farang guy with a rental place, any ideas?
We just want to get out in the mountains and away from the Bangkok rumble for a while.

If you go to HOME page and click on BIKES all the info you want is there, also a good idea to read NEW USERS as well

Tom sounds like you're planning the perfect escape trip.
A little self research in advance will be big help.
1. The Mae Hong Son loop map is available in scores of places in Cnx & North Thai. See

2. Bike Rental Shops. There are 2 places to look

3. For dirt loops,there is no shortage on his board. Take a look at

Probably none of these will be right though as you claim to be looking but for just a day off-road. If that is your main consideration & youve only got a day, then jut take the MHS Loop map & try one of the link ups that go from Samoeng to R1095, the Mae Malai - Pai road.
One of these should suffice if you're just looking to escape the Bangkok rumble for a day.

pls let us know how you go with a trip report...

Thanks for your help guys, this is a really lazy way of finding information i know!! work constraints and a late planned trip.
