Cambodia Cycle Tour, Biking closer to the Kingdoms Culture

Let the Kingdom of Cambodia, with its impactful history, rich culture and stunning landscapes cast its mesmerising spell over you. Get ready for your cycling adventure vacation today and join us to cycle tour Cambodia.

Sandwiched between Thailand and Vietnam, Cambodia is a melting pot of South East Asian culture, scenery and cuisine. The local people are friendly, happy and gentle. Having struggled through years of bloodshed, poverty and political instability they have a seemingly unbreakable spirit, infectious optimism and they have prevailed with their smiles intact. Cambodia is one of those places that you come away from full of admiration and affection for the people.

In Cambodia we set out to create a ‘laid-back’ cycle tour with predominantly flat riding, laced with loads of interesting things to see and do and finishing each day with tasty food and great accommodation. Our tour begins in Siem Reap in the north and as we wind our way south we get all that and more. We explore the famous Angkor Wat temples by bike, check out floating villages, ride a bamboo train on abandoned train tracks and bike through a time-less landscape of dazzling rice paddies and swaying palms.

Cambodia Cycle Tour Frequently Asked Questions

Escape Adventures fully supported bike tours have been running for decades, if you have any questions "just ask us"

The biking lowdown

We ride 25-75km per day; a total distance of 480km spread over 11 days of biking. We cycle on a range of paved and unpaved roads, dirt tracks and village trails on mostly flat terrain. The surface can be rough and pot-holed at times so a mountain-bike fitted with semi-slick tyres is the perfect bike for this tour (we have mountain bikes available locally for you to hire.) The trip is suited to bikers with a good level of fitness and being competent off-road will add to the enjoyment of your tour and is enjoyed by a wide range of bikers who enjoy a tropical climate with amazing sights and scenes at every turn.

How fit do I need to be for this cycle tour?

We ride 25-75km per day; a total distance of 550km spread over 11 days of biking. Please do read about the daily riding distances and riding terrain in the itinerary and prepare accordingly. The more prepared you are the more you will enjoy your adventure! 

Your preparations should involve:

  • You should be comfortable riding 2-3 times a week with regular rides of 30-50km in length.
  • Ride on paved and unpaved surfaces 

Please do contact us if you would like some help with a detailed training plan.

What type of bikes do we ride?

In Cambodia we hire bikes locally through a Siem Reap based business. They are always near new hard tail mountain bikes with hydraulic disc brakes and 27 or 30-speed Shimano components. They are available in S, M, L and XL and they are perfect for the off-road touring on our Cambodia tour.

If you will be hiring a bike from us please let us know prior to your trip, and please feel free to bring your favourite saddle and clip in pedals (if you normally clip in).

One of the absolute highlights of my life was my Escape Adventures Cambodia tour in 2019. Extremely professional, great communication leading up to the tour and everything throughout the tour exceeded my expectations. Each day was fill of great company, fantastic riding, friendly locals, delicious food and all supported by an amazing team of tour guides and local guides. Can’t wait to do Cape2Cape Aotearoa with Escape in 2021.

Another great trip with Escape Adventures (my fourth). Although this was hot and humid, the trip was planned well around this, with shorter rides and early starts. I felt like I got a good sense of the country beyond the usual tourist trail whilst also hitting tourist highlights. Well informed helpful guides both local and NZ, scrummy food and excellent company- what a great holiday!

This trip was wonderful. A great combination of rural scenery, meeting the locals, seeing life as it really is, wonderful camaraderie and sheer good fun. A chance to see the country and its gracious people “in the raw”. The organisation by our brilliant trip leaders Leigh & John, (ably assisted by Thy and his helpers) made everything run smoothly. Any unexpected changes were taken in their stride to ensure that we all had a wonderful experience. I was super-impressed by The Escape Team’s awareness of the local environment and their efforts to ensure we had minimal impact by hopefully ” leaving tyre marks only” but also the efforts made to support the local small industries etc as we cycled our way through the country. I would unreservedly recommend Escape Adventures as the “way to go” for your cycling trip anywhere you have a yearning to venture!
