Take in the stunning scenery as we follow the mighty Mekong river north from the capital city of Phnom Penh. We’ll cross an 800m long bamboo bridge, ride across river islands and spot the rare Irrawadee river dolphin. We then turn west and ride some excellent trails into temple country! Riding sandy tracks, open dirt roads and jungle singletrack, we’ll discover numerous temples, lost deep in the heart of rural Cambodia. We finish this epic ride in the beautiful and vibrant city of Siem Reap, offering a great variety of shops, markets, restaurants and nightlife. Siem Reap is home to the most spectacular temple of them all – Angkor Wat, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

DAY 1: PHNOM PENH – KAMPONG CHAM | 130KM

We’ll swiftly leave the chaos of Phnom Penh behind us, crossing the mighty Mekong river on a local ferry. We’ll then head north, riding alongside the river all the way up towards the riverside town of Kampong Cham. We’ll ride a mix of tarmac & dirt roads and trails, we’ll ride across a river island and finish the day by riding an 800m long bridge made entirely out of bamboo! We’ll be spending the night in the riverside town of Kampong Cham.

DAY 2: KAMPONG CHAM – KRATIE | 130KM

Sticking to the side of the Mekong river we will continue north, passing through small villages and fishing communities. We’ll arrive at the riverside town of Kratie early afternoon, so we’ll have plenty of time to take a boat over to the river island of Koh Trong. Here we can hire a bicycle to explore this beautiful and peaceful island, meeting the locals and sampling Khmer foods. After watching the sunset over the river we will hop back on the boat to head back to Kratie town.

Accommodation will be in a riverside hotel.

DAY 3: KRATIE – KAMPONG THOM | 160KM

In the morning we’ll hop on some wooden longtail boats and go in search of the rare and endangered Irrawadee river dolphin. Kratie is one of the fews locations on the Mekong River where the dolphin still survives. We’ll then hop on the bikes and catch a local ferry across the Mekong river and ride a brilliant mix of sandy trails, forest tracks and dirt roads across to the town of Kampong Thom.

Accommodation will be in a town hotel.

DAY 4: KAMPONG THOM – PREAH KHAN | 145KM

A cultural day of history today! We’ll explore the temple complex of Sambor Prei Kuk in the morning. Then after lunch we’ll ride some really fun dirt trails through to the deserted Preah Khan temple where we’ll enjoy some cold beers whilst watching the sun set behind the temple arch… the perfect way to finish a good days ride!

Accommodation will be in a homestay in a beautiful small village.

DAY 5: PREAH KHAN – SRAE EM | 145KM

We’ll wake up to the sound of this beautiful village coming to life. Pigs snorting, chickens rustling and cowbells jingling as the buffalo are being walked out to the rice paddies. We’ll stroll into the village for a local coffee and then back to the homestay where our breakfast will be waiting. After that very relaxed start to the day we’ll get kitted up and hit the trails for another great and varied days riding.

Accommodation will be in a guesthouse.

DAY 6: SRAE EM – KOH KER VIA PREAH VIHEAR TEMPLE | 180KM

In the morning we will ride up to the ancient Preah Vihear temple, situated high up on a cliffside on the Thai – Cambodia border. The temple itself is beautiful, but the view from the top across the plains of Cambodia is just breathtaking! It’s then back down the winding roads and into the jungle, riding winding dirt tracks through to the temple complex of Koh Ker. We can explore some of the temples before returning to our guesthouse for some sunset rooftop beers!

Accommodation will be in a guesthouse.

DAY 7: KOH KER – SIEM REAP | 120KM

This morning we will ride dirt roads and tracks through beautiful scenic villages. The final afternoons riding brings a great variety of trails, from tight twisting singletrack, open dirt roads and fast-paced sandy tracks. We finish up rolling into the beautiful city of Siem Reap. After showering off the dirt we’ll go out for dinner on ‘Pub Street’ followed by a couple of drinks at one of the many bustling bars!

Accommodation is in a centrally located hotel with a pool.
