We were a group of 13 on this bike ride through Battambang and into the countryside villages. The roads are very good traffic wise, and quiet for the most part.

I highly recommend the day long trip. Due to it being low season and travelling alone, I had my own guide: Saram. He was very knowledgeable about the area and industries and spent a lot of time giving detail and answering my questions at the many stops and I really enjoyed his company. Because of the arrangements that Soksabike have... More

What a fantastic afternoon spent riding around Battambang on great mountain bikes with lovely young guides. The three Cambodian guides we had were brilliant and spoke excellent English. They were always watching out for everyone in the group. It was a terrific way to do something active and get out and about in the community. Helmets were supplied and they... More

Great way to see a more authentic side of Cambodia. You visit a number of family run businesses producing traditional Khmer products, and see sights not on the regular tourist trail. Excellent guide who was good with kids and very knowledgeable. Thoroughly recommended.

It was April in Battambang and very hot; there was also the possibility of rain. And I'm 70 this year - did I really want to go on a half day bike ride? But I did go and it was a fantastic experience. I was the only customer so I had Mony, my guide, to myself. He was so good.... More

A friend I was traveling with suggested we do the half day bike trip and I'm extremely glad I did. The mountain bike was of good quality with good gears and breaks although a basket for water/bag would have been good. Our guide was excellent and very informative about our planned trip - we learnt a few Khmer phrases so... More

It was a great way to see lots of food production, hear stories, get out of the city a bit, and get some exercise. The biking is not strenuous. Definitely need sunscreen, though!
