Overnight in Siem Reap
After breakfast at the hotel, you start biking the morning temple exploration at the most illustrious temple with fewer crowds. First, you will visit Ta Prohm which is unique in that it has been left largely as it was found- overgrown by jungle trees and vines, with many parts of the temple crumbling to the ground. This makes the so-called Tomb Raider Temple, as it was used during the filming of the movie, one of the most picturesque and memorable temples of the Angkor complex.
You will then head out to the ancient city of Angkor Thom, enter the city through the ancient Gate, an impressive stone gate carved with elephants and four giant faces. From here, continue to Bayon Temple, found in the center of the city famed as the enigmatic faces representing the 54 provinces of the Great Khmer Empire. The Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leper King are also must-visits as they are both known for their intricate bas-reliefs.
You will take a break at lunch and stop at the local restaurant to enjoy tasteful Cambodian dishes.
Lastly, you will bike to the gem of the Angkor complex, Angkor Wat. Following your tour leader, you will be mesmerized by the rich history and symbolism of this unique ancient temple. Afterwards, you will return to your hotel.

The terrain is varied, mainly flat and follows by the mixture of tarmac roads and dirt roads passing the countryside & Angkor complex. We cycle on backroads with lovely open landscapes and leisurely with plenty of stops to rest or take photos. Our Siem Reaper guides can also easily accommodate type riders, who seek less ride with a boost in the van.
This tour is tailor-made to suit cyclists of all levels of experience, fitness, and all ages with different backgrounds. Siem Reaper require all of the cyclists to enjoy the challenges but should respect everyone’s limits of cycling. The tours are designed so everyone can go at their own pace, and bear in mind that this is not a race.
Travel insurance is not covered in the tour price. You can organize travel insurance with your preferred insurance company. As medical facilities in Cambodia are rather limited, so it is imperative for you to take out a good medical insurance policy when travelling.
The tools and spares are carried by your tour leader in the vehicle along with a full toolkit for the tour. However, it is also gauche for us to carry spares for every eventuality, therefore, it is necessary that when before departing, you should have a quick look at your two-wheel fellow whether it is in good order.
We strongly recommend that you ride a mountain bike for our trips involved in asphalt, dirt, and backroads that some are sandy and rocky. If you are much more comfortable with your own staffs, we highly suggest bringing such as pedal, saddle, helmets, and water bottle. Our mechanic will adjust to your bikes and personal staff.
The country has two distinct weather seasons but we can travel all year round in Cambodia. Our wet season runs from May to September and the dry season from October until April and the heaviest rainfall usually in August & September. The cooler is 24°C around November/December and hottest hitting 35°C around April/May.
Siem Reaper provided a fantastic service from start to finish. Prompt and helpful responses to my queries pre-booking. My guide George was a genuinely lovely person who is friendly and knowledgeable. A varied and interesting tour, can’t believe how much I did in just 4 days! Highly recommended.
A great bike ride in the countryside around Siem Reap in local villages, markets, hidden temples, farm life and floating village. All capped off with fabulous food experiences, the highlight being the village cooking class culminating in a fantastic lunch. The guys (George, Marco, Red and Bo) were super friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. Put simply, a superb experience.
There was nothing to dislike. One must expect all of the trappings of country life and local villages and there were no surprises here. All to be expected and the people are so happy and friendly. A wonderful reality check.
I have just completed a wonderful 4 day cycling and culinary tour with Siem Reaper. This very special experience was a holiday of a lifetime and I will encourage all our friends to do it!! The tour was personal, never hurried and George, Marco, Red & Bo our guides were knowledgeable, humorous, supportive, kind and had a good command of English (they never stopped smiling)!! My husband & I are both 65 and well travelled. We enjoyed all that the tour offered including riding through the Cambodian countryside, experiencing rural village life, away from busy tourist areas. The company supports sustainability, local communities and initiatives. The culinary journey was always delicious, culminating in a ox cart ride to support locals and a fabulous cooking course. We can’t thank this company enough for this shared special experience. I encourage everyone to consider going on this wonderful tour where you depart from the usual tourist madness and enjoy being a local!!!
