Group Description

Welcome to Road Rider - Chiang Mai, the place to find everything the roadie needs to know about cycling on the roads of Chiang Mai, northern Thailand, and beyond, even if you ride a mountain bike:

Meet other riders
Where to ride
Road conditions
Where to buy or sell equipment

Have a question? Someone here will have the answer!

We offer a variety of challenging rides leaving from the new Convention Center (on Canal Road about 2 kms north of Huay Kaew Road) five or six days a week heading north, south and west with a rare foray east. Sometimes, flat, sometimes hilly, sometimes mountainous, and sometimes the amount of climbing is just plain stupid. But we always have fun. The ride start times are determined by the weather and the distance, but are usually at 8:00am.

There is a more mellow ride that also leaves from the Convention Center. Also 5 or 6 days a week, these rides are usually pretty flat with a cruising speed of about 27-30 km/h for a 2 1/2 - 3 hour ride, occasionally longer.

There are regular sessions on the velodrome too. Contact Ian at ianfranklin at rocketmail dot com for the current schedule.

Many rides are posted to the group, but we'd love more rides and more variety. If you would like more info, contact Jeff at JeffVgl@yahoo.com or just click below to join the e-group!
