Cycling Chiangmai 1

Cycling in Thailand can be such a rewarding experience, the people are friendly and the roads not too bad as long as you have the right kind of bike and watch where you are going but the most important thing to have is awareness, some road users are as ignorant of cyclists as in other countries but in Thailand there are not that many rules regarding driving on the roads and they overtake, undertake don’t signal when turning just stop where they please even in the middle of the road, motorbikes go the wrong way on main roads as there are not many right turns so instead of going to the next u turn junction they just drive on the wrong side putting faith in other road users and Buddha.

That said the weather is good although can be very hot and in Hang dong the pollution not bad at all really as I stick to the back roads mainly so rice fields and mountain views the norm.

I was hoping to get a bit further afield and write about traveliing to Lamphun or Lamphang but my little Japanese folder not up to the job so just local routes for me.
