Anyone cycling around Asia in November

Hi everyone,

I will be arriving in Bangkok around the 9th of November and i was wondering if there are any other cyclists in the area around this time, within a few days of ariving i want to cycle to Siem Reap in Cambodia, i would like to take around 6 days, I will be attending a meditation and yoga retreat there so wont be continuing to cycle immediatly. Looking forward to hearing back from you

Thanks

Anna

I'm in Bali now, working my way up to Thailand and beyond. Maybe we can coordinate something. My blog is http://jk.cgoab.com. Jeff from Canada.

That would be great, i arrive

That would be great, i arrive in Bangkok on the 9th of November, i will stay a few days and then find a bike to start riding to Siem Reap, so i guess that i estimate to leave around the 13th .. i need to be in Siem Reap around the 19th or 20th because i take part in a meditation retreat there, i would love to cycle the distance with you, i have been on cycling tours before around Europe and Turkey and i am a bike messenger in Austria.. still i guess i wont be so used to the climate there so it will be an exciting challenge, do you know around when you get to Thailand?

Sounds fun! Is that your whole trip, or are you cycling after Siem Reap as well? Yes, the climate may be shocking if you arrive directly from Europe. I am still adjusting to the high humidity in Bali, after being in dry Australia. Now I am sweating more than ever before in my life!

I am not following a schedule, but November seems reasonable for me to get to the Bangkok area, especially because I will be running from the oncoming wet season in Indonesia and Malaysia. But it's hard for me to plan ahead that far! Maybe just watch my blog over the next couple of months and we'll see what happens.

There will probably be others cycling in Thailand around then too. There is a hostel in Bangkok for cyclists, see https://www.crazyguyonabike.com/forum/board/message/?o=tS&thread_id=731958&page=1&nested=0&v=V

thanks for the tip!

Hi Jeff,
Thanks for the tip about the hostel! I'm planning to do some riding in Thailand next month and looking for some connections and other riders. I have found one but he can't make it until the 21st of December and I am landing there around the 12th. Maybe our paths will cross.
And I wish I was there in November Bike Girl but sadly I have to wait until work is finished for the year for me. I hope that you find someone to ride with.
Cheers

OOOmmmmmmm

It'll no doubt do some good to go hang with a few wholesome monks for a while, Id say a year or 7 ought to do it.

Hi again, sorry but I won't

Hi again, sorry but I won't be able to make it to Bangkok in time to meet you! I am only in Melaka (Malacca) Malaysia now, with still a long way to go to Bangkok. Have a great ride and maybe we'll see each other on the road later!
