Saturday’s ride is 37-44 km depending upon whether you take the FRB route
and/or shortcut. The ride is through, in and around low foothills of U Thong,
including hills and sugar cane fields. The tracks are singletrack, jeep track,
cow track and farm roads. On the Saturday ride there is one very long (and
rocky) downhill section that is a blast! There are two water stops on Saturday
(10 and 26 km) and the area is quite arid, so plan on drinking a lot….of
Sunday’s ride is 28 km and is mostly kid-friendly. There is one climb with a
steep downhill section that we recommend kids walk down (Joe hit 60+ km/hr
going down). The track is mostly singletrack/jeep track in sugar cane fields
except for the sections near the hills. There is one water stop midway
through the ride.
This area is thorny, so please remember to bring extra tubes and
patches or sealant if you are riding tubeless.
