So mapmyride says downhill all the way, b******s is it. You quickly descend only to be hit by a wall of tarmac so steep I had to get off and push, not once but 3 times! This is the first time in 7,000km with these bikes I have had to do that. Now I know why the guys were laughing.
Looks flat but it's the steepest road I have ever ridden
Locals at work, slash and burn
Once the character building section was over the rest of the ride was awesome all the way to the highway. We had a couple of dog chases but the cap guns scare the poo out of the little buggers making them scatter. We made a little detour to the elephant conservation camp but it looked more like a theme park/show sort of thing so we blew it out.
Now we are in a nice hotel with breakfast for 650baht, could be 145km tomorrow.
