The Eagle Route
This is a great intro ride to off road mountain biking. The descent through Doi Suthep National Park presents us with great views of the Mae Ping Valley below and makes this one of the most scenic and popular rides.
TRIP DESCRIPTION DOWNHILL, UP COUNTRY RIDE
National forest and plantation access dirt road with ruts, rock gardens, mud and sand traps, some steep down hills at times but very manageable.
Our 4 wheel drive transportation takes us to the top of Doi Pui mountain 1600m( 5400 feet) above the Palace and Doi Suthep Temple. After viewing Doi Pui Village below and some stretching, we prepare our Cycles and get ready to ride down to our favorite coffee plantation.
This first part of the trip helps us to evaluate your riding ability and we talk about techniques to make your downhill cycling even more enjoyable. Everyone is encouraged to practice the newly learned techniques. The trail leads straight down the mountain with at times steep downhill riding, Absolute no lengthy up hills disturb the rhythm and spirit of the forest, At our many rest points we enjoy the beautiful views of Chiang Mai below.
The challenging terrain of the route capture our full attention. The wild growth of the forest hugs the path. Half way down, we leave the dirt path and head straight through the forest on single track over roots and rocks , A well deserved break at a secret waterfall, and then single track all the way to the lake for lunch. This ride, although not easy, is a great introduction to off road downhill mountain biking. At the Lake a our favorite Lunch spot prepares the well deserved meal for us.
After Lunch we head back to Chiang Mai the lazy way, in the truck and full of great memories.
