Where do we ride
Are rides are typically set around the jungle, forests and plantations around Phuket, it is a mix of trails, hill climbs, and sometimes bitumen to get us to our destination.
Is it hard ?
Some elements of the ride can be challenging, including pushing bikes uphill, small water crossings or lifting bikes across fences.
We ride as a group and help each other through the challenges.
Is it social ?
We welcome all riders of all ages, nationalities and origin, there is something for everyone.
The focus is on fresh adventure via mountain bike for each ride and then a social gathering with friendly banter afterwards.
