What to expect?

Saturday Ride

This ride will be a mix of terrain to satisfy every type of rider. Smooth and easy start on single track with fast rolling trails before heading to the difficulty of the day. Khao Kheow mountain.
We will have 3 distance available: 25, 30 and 36km

  • 25 km: If you want to skip the climbing part, a short cut will be
    available.. (ok for beginner). Take note that it will be 25 km, if
    all go well (555) as you will have to solve few checks first. (+150
    meters elevation). (+/- 2 hours ride).

  • 30 km: We prepare a second option with 30km. Mainly will be one long
    climb followed by a rocky downhill. (+/- 3hours ride).

  • 36 km: For those with more energy, we will have a third option at 36
    km for the FRB. We are even working on FRB ++ option on the FRB.
    (+/-) 4h.

Both 30 and 36km option will allow you to play in Khao Kheow mountain. This hill section are respectively at +350 or +550 for the longer loop. Trails range from dirt tracks in fields, forested single track and nice climbs and lovely technical downhills

Conclusion, We are highly recommending the 36 km trails, the best downhill will be there but if you are not a regular Hasher, we would advise to consider the 30km option. If you are looking for a Sunday like trail, then take is easy and go for the 25km option. The weather will likely be hot, so bottle up. Trails are very remote and there won’t be much shop around to refill. We will have a mobile water stop near a lake approximately 16/18 km.

Sunday Ride

The Sunday ride will be around 23 km and 30 km. it will be more smooth than the Saturday part. However, adventure will be there as you may have to cross small river, slalom in bamboo trail ect…It will still be nice enough to make this journey a family or hangover ride as the landscape is mostly flat on large single track. For those willing to push some extra mile, we are working on additional loop to give the FRB a longer ride with 30km.


Misdirections

Follow Google Maps directions.

Important notes:

  • There are two Suwan resorts. The hash is at the Chonburi one (as opposed to the one in Nakhon Pathom)
  • The new tollway does not allow exiting where Google map suggests. You will need to go a bit further South. These directions are more accurate: Click here
