We then climb up a long, but shallow hill near the Pranburi forest where you will see a variety of scenery including pineapple, banana and coconut plantations, and view the wonderful mountain scenery.
Next we cycle a few kilometres to Pranburi National Park, where we will explore the mangrove trail and beach. Here we will take a break for refreshments.
Then we cycle to ‘Mermaid’ beach (Haad Sai Noi); a wonderful hidden cove with it’s own mermaid and again enjoy the lovely views. You have the option to climb the rocks and steps up the mountain for a visit to a very unique temple that has a spectacular view up the coast towards Hua Hin.
Next, on to the final cove, where we cycle around the ‘Royal’ lake,an area developed by the Queen of Thailand, and visit another fisherman’s cove with amazing Buddha statues and monks’ sanctuary. We finish the ride here at another temple complex where you can feed the hundreds of fish in a small lake. Finally onto nearby restaurant where you will enjoy a delicious Thai lunch.
Pick Up and Delivery
Collection is between 7:30 and 8:00am at your reception so we can get a prompt start in the cooler morning air. We will be returning around 3:00pm.
We have many breaks in the ride to take in the scenery. Riders will have the option to climb (on foot) Khao Tao to the mountain-top temple for a little more exercise and some spectacular views.
During most of the trip we are tracked by our air-conditioned support vehicle, with fresh fruit, water and first aid support. The vehicle is never more than a few minutes away. On the sections of the ride that the support vehicle cannot follow, the ride leader will have a first aid kit and bicycle tools just in case.
