Above: the GPS way. Real riding in real mountains.

Samoeng - Bo Kaew = 30 kms tight steep narrow winding asphalt including 4 kms brick paving, all with excellent forest cover.
At the Bo Kaew end: 5 kms bumpy potholed asphalt may make some inexperienced sport bike riders uneasy, but at the right speed it is all OK!

Donate 200 toys to Karen Hill tribe kids
Donate 150 blankets to 150 households

RETURN

Happy hour at the X-Centre for those so inclined.

This is a real ride for bigger bikes, but all motorcyclists are welcome to come in & join. Note too that smaller bikes will be a lot quicker on the tight narrow steep winding 30 kms from Samoeng - Bo Kaew.

If you're not sure where Huai Mana & Bo Kaew are, they are on the GT Rider Mae Hong Son Loop map.
