I'm talking about mountainbiking. And mountainbiking in Thailand is real hard because of the steep slopes. First time in my life I had to walk about 20 meters because front wheel was airborne.
Unlike Europe where it goes up until the top, most roads and tracks go up an down all the time and that's killing both physically and mentally.
Doi Inthanon was looooooong(back in Chiang Mai after dark), but firts part ok. Some steep curves in the last 8 km at the wrong time of the afternoon I will never forget.
@ Ron are you the Ron from mountainbike.be.
How the expletive do I change pedestrian?
If you follow my links, you will see that I have done a 10 day ride down the Gulf and loved it... Until my knees wouldn't let me anymore I was a pretty keen rider... I competed in endurance (6/12/24 hour) mountain bike comps here... and rode daily for many years...ron wrote: hi Daewoo , young man ,

all the reasons why the north is a motorbikingparadise are exactly the same for cyclists

Met a lot of motorbikers who also love to get on MX-bicycles. Routes are also sometimes similar.........just a thought....... :lol: cheers, Fr
