I'm starting a cycle tour, departing Bangkok Jan 14th and then probably heading 'north-ish' but with no specific destination or plan at the moment. If you're around the area and would like to ride together let's meet!
I'm a 36-year-old guy from the UK who is quite fit but not into masochistic distances or speed. My main 'thing' is that I like/need to travel cheaply but I'm not carrying a tent so will be staying in budget accommodation and eating basic food. Planning to ride 30-60 miles per day, probably departing fairly early in the mornings to avoid the heat and spend the afternoons reclining, reading and gorging on mangoes.
I think I'd like to check out Laos and maybe Cambodia and/or Vietnam but I'm open to suggestions. I've been to the region a few times already but never with my bike, and I'm a bit nervous about dangerous roads/drivers and insane heat/humidity. If I fail to adapt I might look for somwhere to leave my bike for a few weeks and just join the backpacking hoards.
I'd like to learn more about meditation so might do a ten-day retreat somewhere, or just visit some monasteries. Might do some workaway or volunteering too. Who knows?
Get in touch if you want to meet!
