I really didn't know what to expect, I usually make my own itinerary when I ride, but given that my friend and I had limited time and no bikes, this trip fit the bill perfectly. My friend booked the trip in advance on-line and when we arrived at the Grasshopper Bike Shop in the morning of our scheduled day, our bikes, helmets, and a water bottle were ready and waiting. Our guide, a young woman named Amom was not only very knowledgeable and professional, but she was also very fun to be with. She had a wealth of anecdotal information about Cambodia and Phnom Penh in general but also many of the things we saw along the ride. Growing up on a small farm not much unlike many we saw along the ride, Amon was able to give us first hand insight into the challenges of life in rural Cambodia. Overall the ride was quite the adventure, it including three ferry crossings and riding on a variety of tracks, paved roads, gravel roads and dirt cow tracks through rice paddies and farmlands. We made a stop at a small rural silk farm operated by an extended family. The process of making silk was described in detail, while the actually spinning and weaving of the silk could be observed. Most of the folks we met along the way were friendly, the young kids especially would often shout out "hello" as we went by. It was bloody hot riding, but we had ample shade and water breaks. I recommend this trip if you have limited time in PP and want to get away from the bustle of the city to see a little bit of rural Cambodia.
