Trip Overview

This bike tour is designed to take your family on a light adventure holiday to Cambodia. Steeped in history but young at heart, Cambodia makes for an unbeatable holiday destination.

We will cycle through jungle paths and explore the World Heritage-listed Angkor Wat. Then head to the countryside to explore rural village life, cycling through quiet communities and learning about how locals go about their daily lives. We also go off the tourist track and visit a tucked away floating village and kayak down the Tonle Sap Lake to experience life on the water.

This vacation is perfectly tailored for the whole family. We will prepare a slow-paced tour itinerary for you and your children and take care of all the details to make sure you have a comfortable biking tour in Cambodia.

Trip Highlights

  • Cycle all the major highlights of the Angkor temples, visiting the World Heritage Site and the hidden back trails of the Angkor archaeology park.
  • Visit the Bayon temple, the Terrace of the Elephants, and the Terrace of the Leper King and hear fascinating insights into the history of the Khmer Empire.
  • Bike the Siem Reap backroads in an expansive aerial of Tonle Sap lake, exploring the lives surrounding the area.
  • Experience the rural sites of Siem Reap and venture through Cambodia’s culinary adventure.
  • Take a lifetime experience to see the sunrise over Angkor Wat.

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Siem Reap, welcome dinner

Welcome to Siem Reap! Your tour guide and driver will welcome you from the airport and transfer you straight to your accommodation for a few hours of rest. We will then hold a small meeting and brief you about the short trip. So you can spend the rest of your time indulging in your favorite activities. You will also get to enjoy a complimentary overnight stay, including a welcome dinner at our hotel.

Meals: Dinner
Accommodation: Tara Angkor Hotel

Day 2: Bike The Angkor Temples

Today’s ride will begin early with a trip up to the Angkor jungle trails. We start to avoid the inevitable crowds drawn to the wonders of the Angkor complex. The various temples are spread over a wide area and are linked by shady avenues; meandering our way between them by bike gives us a unique perspective.

Our visit includes Angkor Wat temple, the largest religious monument ever built, and a wander through the city’s mystical courtyards and jungle-covered temples, the best known and most breathtaking of all the sights and a highlight of any visit to Angkor. Spend time exploring the ruins of Angkor Wat, the magnificent 12th-century capital of the Khmer Empire, with our expert guide.

Afterward, we cycle to the jungle-covered Ta Prohm, with the amazing roots of the Fromagier trees clinging to the ancient stones. Next, visit Preah Khan’s majestic temple complex, which is surrounded by a moat, and Angkor Thom, with the famous Bayon temple, which has 37 towers topped with the four faces of the king. After our visits to these magnificent temples, we cycle back to Siem Reap.

Meals: Breakfast / Lunch
Accomplished: 30 Km (18 miles)
Accommodation: Tara Angkor Hotel

Day 3: Cycle The Floating Village & Kayaking

Today we ride beyond the crowds, cycling through picturesque villages in the Siem Reap countryside. And we head toward the vast wetlands on the edge of Asia’s largest freshwater lake, Tonle Sap. It is time to swap the bike for a boat adventure down to explore the bird sanctuary. Prek Toal is the largest waterbird colony in Southeast Asia. You’ll access the bird colonies inside the core reserve, which also plays an important factor.

After exiting the sanctuary, we venture to visit the village that builds its houses on stilts, often up to ten meters high, but Mechrey is in fact a floating village. The entire village floats and moves with the receding or increasing waters, thereby continually shifting its location throughout the seasons. We’ll have the opportunity to kayak through the gently lapping waters of the village to witness and learn about the daily lifestyle of the local inhabitants. We’ll return to Siem Reap town in the late afternoon

Meals: Breakfast/Lunch
Accomplished: 35 km (21 miles)
Accommodation: Tara Angkor Hotel

Day 4: Siem Reap Cycling & Culinary Adventure

Today, we cycle through the picturesque Siem Reap vegetable village, where most of the vegetables and herbs you find in dishes served throughout Siem Reap are grown. Here you can get your farming skills on and pick your own veggies, which will later be used for lunch.

Following that, we’ll go to the outdoor market where the locals buy their fresh ingredients, where you’ll learn about the local specialties and select the best local snacks and fruits to try.

Soon, you’ll be able to leave the tarmac behind and pedal down small dirt paths through the scenic countryside, watching local farmers cultivate and harvest their crops. You’ll also see the water buffaloes lounging about in the mud, so photo opportunities will be endless. Expect friendly greetings from locals as they go about their daily activities.

For lunch, we will get to visit a lovely local family where you’ll learn how to cook Cambodian food using the ingredients we collected throughout the tour.  

Meals: Breakfast/Lunch
Accomplished: 15 – 20 Km (9 – 12 miles)
Accommodation: Tara Angkor Hotel

Day 5: Trip Ends in Siem Reap

The trip ends after breakfast at our hotel in Siem Reap.

There are no activities planned today, so you are free to depart from Siem Reap at any time. If your flight departs later in the day, luggage storage facilities are available at our hotel. If you would like to receive a complimentary airport transfer today, you will need to depart from Siem Reap International Airport (REP), which is 20 to 30 minutes away from the hotel.

Meals: Breakfast

Essential Information

Terrain

The terrain is flat, and we cycle on a mixture of tarmac roads and tracks. We mainly follow quiet backroads, but sometimes you have to travel on busier roads when leaving the city. A support vehicle accompanies the rides throughout the trip. We have graded the route as easy.

Bike Repairs

Basic spares and tools are carried by the tour guide and on the support vehicle. However, we cannot guarantee to have spares for every conceivable problem. Carrying a basic tool kit, a spare tube, and a pump while riding is recommended. We do provide a helmet for every cyclist, but it is also imperative that you bring your own helmet and wear it at all times while cycling.

Safety

Wearing a helmet is required on all our biking adventures and is not negotiable. If you do not wear a helmet, you will not be allowed to cycle. Your tour leader is trained in first aid and emergency rescue, but to a large degree, you must be responsible for your own safety while riding. It is therefore compulsory that you take out travel insurance that will cover you for a mountain biking tour.

Clothing

Cambodia has two distinct seasons – wet and dry. Bear in mind that the area is tropical with high humidity. Lightweight clothing is needed all year round. Other additions that you may find useful are a swimming costume, cycle gloves, cycling shorts or trousers, and quick-drying cycle tops. Please note that for the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh and the Angkor Wat temple, shorts are not permitted. Shoulders and knees must be covered, and Sarongs are not allowed.

Non-Rider

On most Ride & Rad trips, we offer non-riding options for riders who want to take the afternoon off or travel companions who want to spend little or no time in the saddle. Some of these options may need to be scheduled before your trip–please contact one of our tour consultants for more information. Expenses and/or related transportation to and from these activities may not be included in the trip price.
