WHEN & GOING WHERE?
Saturday 09/03/2019 to Long An (75km) and back
For this first ride, you will cycle to Long An, also known as the Little Mekong Delta. About 20km outside of Ho Chi Minh City, this forgotten area will offer you a relaxing ride on little roads through rice paddies, pineapple and sugar cane plantations as well as little canals and wooden bridge. What a nice way to spend your Saturday!
Saturday 16/03/2019 to Nhon Trach (75km) and back
Get away from the busy city for this second weekend ride to the countryside. You will pedal to Nhon Trach in Dong Nai Province and travel through rubber and paper plantations, rice paddies and over a hundred water buffalos! This is an incredible way to experience the authentic Vietnam!
Saturday 23/03/2019 to Can Gio Vam Sat (75km) and back
This third week, you will cycle to Can Gio Vam Sat, the Little Amazon. The area is famous for its mangrove forest and UNESCO classified biosphere reserve. You will get to explore the tranquil environment by bike and go for an additional boat tour around the reserve if you wish. If you are lucky, you might be able to see unique bird species as well as monkeys, bats and crocodiles before riding back to Ho Chi Minh City.
Saturday 30/03/2019 to Binh Chau (130km) one way only, transfer by van back to HCMC
The last ride of this challenge will be to Binh Chau, on the Southeast coast. This ride will be done with road bikes enabling you to cycle with a higher speed for those intense 130 km. Binh Chau is one of Vietnam’s hidden gem destinations. Its region possesses over 30km of coastline and 11,000ha of forest as well as rice paddies. The town is famous for its hot springs discovered in the 1900s by a French scientist and is still being studied nowadays as a rare water resource for human wellbeing. This ride will enable you to explore the coastline countryside and vast nature resources before being brought back by van to Ho Chi Minh City.
