    My only experience was in a pie making factory managing the gravy team

    On a Click? 555

    Actually, I'd be a starter for a bicycle ride ... good healthy, heart pumping stuff!
    Cheers, Rob.
    Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting: holy s.h.i.t what a ride!

    Those look really challenging, and make for interesting reading. I haven't done any serious riding in 30+ odd years, and now get my "good, healthy, heart-pumping stuff" another way, but if I ever take it up again, and am living in LOS, and got used to the intense heat ... then yes, I could maybe see myself doing a short tour to start.

    How do you find the heat when you are riding in Thailand? That would be one of my biggest concerns. My second concern would be sharing the road with some of the Thai drivers I have witnessed. I remember riding in a taxi in Phuket on my first trip, where on the way to the airport he would routinely cut onto the edge of the highway ... so essentially the "bike lane" .... at 100+ km/h, to pass cars in lane one. I would hate to be riding in the bike lane with him coming up behind me. Do you find many close calls on while you are riding there?

    As to DP, I think the Doi Intanon Hill Climb would be just the ticket for his first ride .... to break him in slowly, so to speak. 555

    Queensland will sort you out for the heat as it is not so different, lots of water is required.

    I think that incorporates the trail we call Last Man Standing. Most of my MB buddies ride up it. It`s a hellishly steep,difficult hill on a MB.

    The Doi Inthanon ride on Wabs link is a fairly boring ride to Chom Tong but i guess it`s there because the view to Doi Ithanon is fairly good. Once you get to Doi Tao it improves with the road to Lamphun,it`s a really good ride on a MB.
