Born of idle Sunday morning curiosity I have just discovered I can post routes and GPX data here. For those exploring Northern Thailand by bike the route below may be of much interest if heading north from Chiang Rai - beware, it’s unsealed and features steep climbs.
A habit I must return to is taking my camera along when I pop into the hills for a spin. And so it was with this in mind my Olympus, my Kinesis and I have spend a lovely pre-Xmas morning exploring more of the seemingly endless labyrinth of trails in Northern Thailand.
Now to relax and rehydrate.
Merry Yuletide all!!
Ten minutes from home is beautiful playground of dirt trails riding through rubber plantations and skirting lovely little lakes
A seemingly endless ribbon of dirt roads winds through the hills and valleys and past villages of hill tribe people
Gravel roads abound in a most agreeable hue of red
The hills can be of cheeky gradients, 25% was the max this morning, a climb that causes brought about unsightly wheezing and dribbling - note to self, try to remain more composed
Endless hills and valleys to play in
And some cultivation in the form of an aromatic tea plantation
