Cycling Angkor

Angkor is a paradise for cyclists in two ways: Most temples are in easy striking distance and the terrain is flat as a board.

We are exploring special cycling routes like at the walls of Angkor Thom.

       

Why MTB?

Generally, mountain bikes offer certain advantages and disadvantages over, say, road bikes for commuting. Advantages: The seating position is comfortable, and riding will be very comfortable due to suspension and the wider tires. In addition, in bad weather and mud, you probably have better traction with MB tires.

On well-paved roads, the extra weight of the MTB, lower gearing, and the increased rolling resistance of the wheels (wider, knobby tires as well as lower tire pressure) will make the bike slower than a road bike for the same amount of pedalling effort. (after Wikipedia)

        

Individual tours

My advice

Stay three days or more. Book an Introductory Talk. Do the first day with Bakong and Banteay Srei by car, and the following days cycling.

Go in groups of two or thee people.

        

Information on equipment, dress and safety.

Wear a helmet and sunglasses. Respect the temples by covering your shoulders and knees. Have solid, water-resistant shoes. Have enough water and snacks with you.
