This epic 3-day ride is not for the faint of heart! With mostly off-road trails amongst the coffee and rubber tree plantations, you will be met with some technical hill climbs and rewarded with some fast and fun descents.
Mr Biker Saigon or your hotel
It will be hot. If you have never been to SE Asia, expect to sweat. A lot. So dress accordingly!
We will provide water and snacks, but we recommend bringing your own water bottles to reduce plastic bottle usage.
We also recommend bringing your own bike, helmet, gloves, or anything else that will make your ride more comfortable. However, we do provide all of these stated.
This cycling adventure will start by being picked up at your hotel in Ho Chi Minh at 7:00am by our team where you will be transferred out to Xuan Lap, only 1 hour outside of HCM.
Xuan Lap is a small farming town and we will follow gravel paths out through local fruit orchards and wind our way out to more open areas.
There are many rubber tree plantations and quiet areas for your group to explore with you guide and plenty of tree coverage to stay out of the sun. There are some small technical climbs and short and fast descents.
We will finish with a later lunch on this day and then transfer up to Bao Loc (3.5 hours) to your hotel for the night.
Bao Loc is in the Central Highlands and is known as the ‘Tea Kingdom’ of South Vietnam with its cooler weather, blue skies, green forests and red soil. It’s not known for it’s tourism, but more a stop over for travelling Vietnamese.
The next morning we will start with a local Vietnamese breakfast and then in Bao Loc, you will hop on your bike and start riding to the hilly countryside. You will meet a couple of challenging hills but the view to the green tea plantations, impressive mountains and temples will be 100% worth it.
You will ride until a charming secluded village, home of the Ma ethnic minority group, one of Vietnam’s 54 ethnic groups. You will be welcome by a local guide from this minority and will learn more about their culture and history.
After lunch, you will be able to relax a bit at the village’s temple, or of course ride more if you wish, do not forget your swimsuit as there is a stunning waterfall just 15 minutes away. With a superficies of several hectares, this temple is truly one of Vietnam’s most impressive establishments. Moreover, the temple welcomes orphan children and has also agreed to open its doors to Mr Biker Saigon. You will then have the opportunity to sleep within the temple for a night.
Dinner will be taken in a lovely traditional family’s home where you will get to try typical Ma food as well as traditional rice wine, also called ‘jar wine’.
A true plunge into the past! From this village, you will cycle back to District 1 with a local breakfast on the way. In District 1, you will ride next to the Notre Dame Cathedral of Saigon and will stop at an important site in the American history of the Vietnam War. You will then cycle back our departure point to end the tour around noon.
After breakfast at the temple you will head straight out for the days adventure.
Today is a mix of tough climbs, super fun and flowing trails that follow the sides of the mountains with stunning views to take in along the way.
This ride is around 60% trails through coffee plantations with many a local to wave at and looking stunned as no foreigners ever travel through here.
The hill sections are technically fun but you will have had 2 days practise before taking on this challenge.
We finish the day taking a dip under a waterfall and a few cold beers to follow, a great way to finish the day. We will transfer back to HCM (around 3.5 hrs) and should be back at your hotel by 6pm.
