Our mission is to inspire people to travel by mountain bike in order to explore the rural regions of Southern Thailand, meet the locals, enjoy the fresh air and of course, to discover themselves. Our cycling routes are a nice mixture of country roads and trails.
Our most popular mountain biking trip is our wonderful Koh
Yao Noi cycling day trip. All of
our guides are born and raised on Koh Yao Noi. They have
loads of routes. Let us know what you want and we'll put
together a cycling route that fits. From mild to wild, we
can do it.
Join us on an amazing coast to coast route that is a nice mixture of country roads, dirt roads, and single track trails.
It starts on the Gulf of Thailand side of the Malay Peninsula and ends just across the Sarasin Bridge (bridge to Phuket) on a beach on the Andaman Sea side. Most of the ride is fairly flat. Or, if you don't have enough time or possible the fitness required to go coast to coast, we offer an easier five-day expedition or a four-day mini expedition.
Here are some photos from one of our Coast to Coast tours.
However, if you prefer a more laid-back, relaxed mountain biking trip that involves a mixture of backroads and offroad sections, that is also available. Check out this story of an easy five-day mountain biking tour.
Our newest cross country cycling route is from Nakhon Si Thamarat to Krabi Province. This route is suitable for beginner and up. There are two mountain passes during the entire six day tour. They are not difficult. Everything else is fairly flat. There is very little that is technically challenging. This is a relaxing cycling trip through a very scenic part of the countryside.

Southern Thailand mountain biking is still somewhat in it infancy. There is so much to explore that it would take a lifetime just to scratch the surface.
Plus, there is a lot of wonderfully different terrain to explore by mountain bike in southern Thailand.
Although Thailand has been in the mass tourism spotlight for quite some time, there are still plenty of places to cycle and not see any of the downsides that tourism can bring to a region. In other words, there are still plenty of places near the over-developed places that are very worth visiting. That's where we'll take you. That's where you'll still be able to experience the world-famous Thai hospitality, authentic Thai food, the tropical jungle and verdant farmland.
By simply crossing the Sarasin Bridge, the mainland bridge to Phuket Island, you enter rural Thailand. It is here that you can experience the not-so-distant cultures of the past. Although most of the land has been clear-cut and replaced with rubber plantations, oil palm plantations and some other agricultural plantings, this makes for terrific mountain biking. Rubber plantations offer nice single-track trails and shade. Oil palm plantations don't offer as much shade, but they're still a great place to go biking as they tend to have nice well-kept trails.
No experience is needed for our standard full day tours, but you should be an active person.
You will cycle with experienced guides. Our guides are trained in first aid, CPR and they’ve all got a serious sense of safety. All guides are First Aid certified by Emergency First Response and Dave is an Emergency First Response Instructor.
Our guides and leaders spend endless hours out on trails and secondary roads researching the best possible routes. Our focus is, of course, safety, beautiful scenery, mixing up the types of terrain and a potential for cultural interaction with the locals.
Our normal trips are smaller group sizes than some other tour operators.
You get to experience authentic, world famous Thai food from non-touristy village restaurants!
Note: by Thai law, every company must have a Tourism Authority of Thailand licensed Thai guide on every trip. If you go on a trip that doesn't have a licensed Thai guide, you're supporting illegal tourism. Please support tour companies that obey the law of the land.
