Just did an 8 day ride with Paeng from Dancing Roads and couldn't recommend them highly enough. If you are thinking of doing the same don't hesitate, I mean it, email Sonia now and book it in. You could not have a better time with your pants on.
11 of us started in Siem Reap where we met Paeng with a truck load of bikes a guide, sweeps (we referred to them lovingly as sherpa's) and a back up vehicle which carried all our bags along with refreshments which are required during and at the end of the day. We gave Sonia (Paengs partner) a rough itinerary of what we wanted to do and left the rest to them.
From Siem Reap we headed to Koh Ker (guest house) then to Kampong Thom, Kampong Channg, Phnom Penh, Kep, Koh Tonsay (Rabbit island) and back to Phnom Penh. We travelled through some of the best trails and dirt roads in Cambodia. We saw Cambodia from the rural life to the cities.
We saw families washing there kids in irrigation ducts to being passed by the latest model Range Rovers. The contradication in lifestyles is extraordinary.
Back to Dancing roads, nothing, and I mean nothing was too much trouble. It was as if they could read our minds as to what it was that we needed help with.
As to the riding. You could ride roads dirt or tar all day if you want, or trails for some more adventure, up to you. With the size of our group we were given options. Most went the trails others the roads. Whichever you choose. I recommend you take all your gear and if you don't need it, pack it in your bags.
If you want to stay off the trails a good pair of hiking boots/shoes, jeans and long sleeve top are all you will need along with some wet weather gear, just in case, and your helmet. Although one can be provided, I recommend you bring your own.
If you want to dabble in any trails bring your stuff, motorcross/sturdy road boots (absolutely essential), nylons, knee and elbow guards, gloves and of course helmet and goggles but it is so bloody hot you need to think ventilation. If you dont need your gear you can pack it in your bags and have it put in the back up vehicle. If you are doing a short trip you could possibly get away without a back up but I think for the limited cost, book it.
I hope this info is of help.
Don't think it, do it and although I don't think it possible, if you don't have the time of your life, you need to see someone. Cheers, Andrew.
