    About the Activity:

    • Cycle from Chiang Mai’s city center up and over forested foothills to the valley beyond. This bike ride is for those who like a little challenge with a few small hills and one fairly steep, but short. Ride through forest and through country fields looping back partially along the same route to finish at Grasshopper’s Chiang Mai office.
    • This is a tour for those who want a little challenge and like riding hills. Biking out from Chiang Mai's old city through the campus of Chiang Mai University, the first stop is at the forest temple of Wat Umong. Cycling on over rolling hills we start our climb up Doi Gom, a steep but short climb.
    • After a little rest cycle down a winding road through forest to the valley of Sameong. The next stop is at the village temple of Ban Pong. Biking on through rice paddies and village lanes we eventually reach a Bee Keeping Training Center. From here we pedal back along the same route passing Wat Umong and then back to the Grasshopper Shop in Chiang Mai's Old City
