Program

Day 1 - Chiang Mai to Nan

Depart from the shop and once clear of the city, start to get a taste for the fantastic roads that are all over Northern Thailand. Lunch is taken lakeside in Phayao and then it’s onto Nan via the scenic route.

Day 2 - Nan loop

Spend the day riding around the Nan area experiencing great routes with little or no traffic and great, grippy tarmac; almost like having your own private racetrack! For those traveling with partners who do not wish to participate, Nan is the provincial capital and has a river running through it, so the day can be used to explore the city or simply laze by the hotel pool!

Day 3 - Nan to Chiang Khong

Depart Nan after a hearty breakfast in readiness for the awesome 1148. This road is “legendary” amongst riders who have experienced it. 100 kilometers of low-traffic twisties, again, with a generally superb surface. As this road is so special, to cater to the differing riding styles and speeds, you will be free to go at your own pace and you will regroup along the way at a drink stop.

After devouring the 1148, you’ll head north through the Phu Chi Fah area, stopping for lunch along the way at a beautiful waterfall. This area is all about one thing; ridgeline riding and spectacular scenery! Tonight’s stop is at Chiang Khong right on the majestic Mekhong River.

Whilst you're here, you'll visit the Opium Museum to get a bit of a feel for the history of the area, then take a short boat ride along the Mekong for some great photo opportunities. Then, it's back on the bikes, lunch in the border town of Mae Sai, and an early return to the hotel at Chiang Rai for a late afternoon laze by the pool.

Day 4 - Chiang Khong to Chiang Rai

You leave Chiang Khong with the Mekong River on your shoulder for the next 50 kilometers. The feeling of riding next to the river is something special. You’ll make a quick stop at a viewpoint before arriving at the Golden Triangle; where the three countries of Myanmar (Burma), Laos, and Thailand meet. Here, you’ll visit the Opium Museum to get a feel for the history of the area, then swap the bikes for a boat and take a short cruise on the river.

Mounting up again, you head west to the border town of Mae Sai for lunch where it’s optional to cross into Myanmar for a look around the market there which is full of dodgy knockoff phones, sunglasses, etc. You’ll be there less than an hour or so, but if some of the party don’t fancy the trip, they can stay at a restaurant on the Thai side or simply stroll around the town. After your border hop, it’s a straight 60 kilometers blast down the highway to the first of your two nights in Chiang Rai.

Day 5: Chiang Rai

Let’s have a bit of culture today, as you start the day a bit later and spend it riding close to Chiang Rai and taking in a couple of special temples. Again, as it’s a layover day, those not wishing to participate are free to explore Chiang Rai or simply laze by the pool.

Day 6: Chiang Rai to Fang

Leaving Chiang Rai, you have a short blast north on the highway before turning into the countryside and heading to a spectacular tea plantation. Today, you will experience probably the most technical riding and more picturesque routes and views. You’ll hopefully encounter Lisu hill tribe kids in full costume and lunch at a village populated by Kuo Ming Tang; originally Chinese soldiers who were forced to flee Mao Tse Tung’s communist China in the early 1950s.

After lunch, you’ll ride via a Karen Long Neck village to the riverside town of Thaton before sampling one of the areas' most spectacular temples and then depending on the time, ascend into the back hills for a ride close to the Burmese border, complete with army checkpoints before holing up for the night in Fang.

Day 7: Fang to Chiang Mai

Your last day sees you once again sampling some of the most deserted roads in the area and heading up to the Royal Project area of Doi Ang Khang. If you didn’t get the chance to ride a section of the border road on day six, you can squeeze a quick run in here. You’ll then proceed out of the mountains to your last lunch stop. You will aim to be back at the shop, tired but happy for beers at approximately 4 p.m.
