there are some excellent routes ideal for cyclists who want to explore the city's surroundings and get off the beaten
track. Regular bicycles as well as mountain bikes are available for rent near Thapae Gate. The Chiang Mai bicycling
group takes off in a large group on Sunday mornings from this point.

excursions, single or multi day, on enduro bikes. Alternatively, you can hire these and go exploring on your own.

would think. However there are endless trails on the mountain and you can discover these for yourself by riding up the
