Moped rentals

I was wondering how far it will take me to get from Kathu to MaiThon on a Moped? Also never having ridden one before, is it pretty safe for a female to get around by herself?

I am doing volunteer work at Mai Thon and am looking for cheap but reasonable accomodation with a pool and found a place down at Kathu....

Any advice will be greatly appreciated...

You've never ridden a scooter before but now you're planning to ride one in a third-world country... amazing. Of all road accidents in Thailand over 70% involve motorcycles.

Hope you have your work permit too.
