We had booked a whole programme with bicycling, elephant and boat ride for 2 adults and our 2 kids of 7 and 10. Unfortunately it was raining in the morning and we left after lunch from the hotel where we were picked up by K. Bee in a van. The rain delay was no problem and just meant the programme was cut short to bicycle only (at much lower cost). Bikes are brand new, super clean and well maintained, helmets available.

We supplied info on our and kids length to match bikes and frankly was perfect. A van followed us on the way through most beautiful countryside, water and cold drinks arranged. Don't worry about traffic, there wasn't any. Roads very easy to navigate, 1 one or 2 short steeper little hills made the kids struggle a bit, but who can complain when K. Amorn pushed our smallest one up the hill running behind her? Really did enjoy the 2 guides / owner - who showed kids some nice tricks with plants (shooting arrows, fire-cracker loud leaves and touch-me-nots shrinking plants). Very very enjoyable.

Arriving at the white temple, they handed out some crisps, bananas and young peanuts, we had a walk around the temple (interesting - not my taste though - see and find out for yourself) and returned by van (they swiftly loaded the bikes on the top, no problem). Thank you for a very nice afternoon. Very recommendable - for sure also with young family.

I was passing through Chiang Rai for my visa run and looking for something to do. I'm so glad I spent the time I had doing this Bicycle tour. In just one day, We rode 36km, saw a real hill tribe village (not just one on show for tourists), saw a waterfall, rode an elephant and had a boat ride down the river. The guides English was great and he was very knowledgeable. They really look after you, making sure you get enough water and morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea were provided. Thumbs up for a wonderful day.

This is a late review as we went on this trip in Dec 2012. We did the ride from Chiang Saen to Mae Sai at the Burmese border with our 2 children, aged 8 and 11.

This was a fantastic way to see the country and to keep the children off the gadgets (and from squabbling!).

Our 11 year old was fine with the distance, our 8 year old sat in the support van for 5km out of the 42km.

Bee and his bothers were fantastic with the kids, they pick rural routes so you are away from much of the traffic and often cycle through villages, past homes, fields and children playing.

Would definitely recommend using Bee and his brothers, very professional, good quality bikes and Bee organises a lovely local lunch en-route too.

We have just come back from this tour and I took it upon myself to write the review up immediately, as I was so impressed. Here are the essentials...

-Family run company operating 7km outside of the city centre
-Offers half-day tours of the surrounding countryside, as well as 1-, 2- and 3-day tours depending on demand.

We chose a full-day tour, which costs 1,600THB (£33 / $52). This includes:
-pick-up and drop-off from and to your accommodation.
-bike (all mid-range Trek mountain biked) and helmets
-almost unlimited water, pepsi, ice coffee, fresh fruit and fried snacks.
-simple but tasty lunch
-visit to The White Temple, Khun Khon waterfall and the largest Buddha statue in northern Thailand.

The founder is a man called Bee, who is bursting with enthusiasm and local knowledge. He was joined by brother Amon on the roads, while their sister, whose name I forget, backed us all up in a 4x4 alongside her daughter. The roads are a mix of quiet, tarmac roads and pebbled paths which wind through the countryside. The terrain is flat and suitable for those with only a moderate level of fitness. In total, the ride is about 27km before lunch, after which the half-dayers depart, and the same again in the afternoon. Pick-up is between 8:30 and 9am and you'll be back in your hotel no later than 6pm.

Great fun, food and views. Well run and friendly company.

Definitely go on this tour when you are in Chiang Rai! We did the 1/2 day which was excellent and a perfect amount of time (it was very hot out and by the time we got to lunch/the end we were pretty wiped out and glad we had not chosen the full day). Bee and his brothers give you a quality tour of the countryside-- an easy ride in the kind of scenery you were looking to see in northern Thailand. They are very kind and professional and we appreciated the experience very much. Definite highlight of our trip to SE Asia!!!
