TREK MARLIN 7 2020

INCLUDED IN THE TRIP PRICE

ABOUT THE TREK MARLIN 7

COMPONENTS:

– 27.5″ or 29″ wheels
– Alpha Silver Aluminum frame is lightweight and responsive
– RockShox XC32 fork
– Shimano Altus 2×9 Speed
Available sizes (in): 13.5, 14.5, 15.5, 16.5, 17.5, 18.5, 19.5, 21.5, 23

Terrains

The terrain is flat and we cycle on a mixture of tarmac roads and tracks. We mainly follow quiet backroads and 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 non 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.

Clothes

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/trousers and quick drying cycle tops. Please note for the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh and 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 these activities may not be included in the trip price.
