Mini Itinerary

  • Out of the Hills, Hopefully
    25 March 2012

    A short outing today, but still with bumps.

  • Bumping Through the Jungle
    24 March 2012

    I'm expecting a flat easy day today, with a few bumps and maybe with a nice tailwind. No can do.

  • Back Down Into the Oxygen Soup
    23 March 2012

    For a day with such a hefty descent, today's a lot of work.

  • Riding to Colorado
    20 March 2012

    Tanah Rata is the administrative centre of the Cameron Highlands. There's a clue in the name that hints at what today's ride was like.

  • Finally, a Real Puncture
    19 March 2012

    My tyres are getting worn. Back in Ao Nang, I swapped front and rear, due to the rear wearing faster. It's no big surprise when I pull a chunk of metal out of the rubber.

  • Back on the Mainland
    18 March 2012

    Woke up sore from yesterday's exertions. Nothing to be done. Breakfast, pack, bike.

  • Hashing in the Land of the Mother Hash
    17 March 2012

    I've several cuts and scratches on my hands, patches of moist forest matter stuck to my ankles, a red patch on my left sock where I've bled into it, a rather muddy rear, and I ache all over.

  • Island to Island Ferry
    14 March 2012

    The ferry to Penang leaves at 2:30pm, so it's hardly a hurried start to the day.

    More

  • Selamat Datang
    11 March 2012

    Up early, not much cycling planned, as it's a ferry day, so a quick 7-11 breakfast will do.

  • Rainy Ride to the Edge of Thailand
    10 March 2012

    The plan today is similar to yesterday's: get going early to beat the rain. The hotel café opens at 8am however, and breakfast is too important to skip.

    More

  • Racing the Rain
    9 March 2012

    The rain's been a reliably recurring feature of the last few days, generally making an appearance around mid afternoon. With this in mind, I set out early to try to get the ride done before it dumps.

  • Ferry to Ko Lanta
    7 March 2012

    Since Jiangcheng, I've not used motorised transport as a means of biting off a large chunk of distance. Today, however, is a ferry day.

    More

  • Checkmate, Coast to Coast
    1 March 2012

    I get up early, as I know it's going to be a long one.

  • Same Mitochondria, Just More of Them
    29 February 2012

    Lang Suan's small, the rollout's easy: under the rail line, an immediate right, and keep on riding.

    More

  • Farthest South Yet
    28 February 2012

    Lang Suan's a tiny bit farther south than Rach Gia, at just under 10 degrees north.

    More

  • Chumphon the Bandwagon
    27 February 2012

    I get up at 6:20am to watch the sunrise over the sea. I'm not the first up.

    More

  • Thailand Narrows
    26 February 2012

    Today's a highway day, but I manage to clock quite a few kilometres off it, and those that are on it are painless.

    More

  • The Dogs Must Be Crazy
    25 February 2012

    Today is a pleasant surprise of a ride, only marred a little by poor food planning.

    More

  • You Don't Need a Weatherman to Know Which Way the Wind Blows
    23 February 2012

    No main highway today. It's good to have a break from the noise.

    More

  • Southbound Again
    22 February 2012

    Bangkok's been the second stage of getting some rest and stability after so many kilometres. I spend my time running a few errands and eating, sleeping and rejigging my itinerary. Now it's time to get on the road again and actually start aiming at Singapore.
