    Bike Sizes and Your Heights

    Support Minivan if you have limit biking level

    During your cycling trip, we don’t provide any support minivan unless you request so. A support minivan is useful to some of medium level riders whenever you feel enough or won’t be able to continue riding especially when you bike with your children and depends on distances. Please be aware that the support minivan can’t access all routes, meaning our bike guide will manage the minivan-driver to wait for you at suitable stops. Make sure you always take a bottle of water with you before the minivan leaves to other stops. Overall, please consider carefully whether you need to take a support minivan or all of you are extremely able to ride the bikes back to hotel at the end of the trip.

However, we require you to respectfully take responsibility to inform us at least 48 hours prior to the tour departure if you wish to cancel the booking.

    *Dressing Code and You should bring along

    Cambodia geographically stays in the tropical monsoon, its weather varies and annually brings wet and dry seasons, generally hot in during day time and a bit cooler at night, and in the early morning. You should wear whatever most comfortable but remember to dress appropriately to respect the locals and other religious sites; pagodas, temples and holy places. Clothes must cover your shoulders and knees when you wish to visit the top part at Angkor Wat, Royal Palace in Phnom Penh and when you go to meet Buddhist monks. It is pretty good if you bring along your bike suits, refillable water bottles and your own helmets.
