Day Rides, Chiang Rai Bikers

Recommended Posts

Several people have mentioned that they would like to find a group of laid-back biker types to do some day rides once a month or so. I'm all for it but will have to get my butt used to several hours at a time on the bike. Anyone else interested?

Would be nice if we could include some of those who know the ins and outs and want to share them.

Not looking for a road race or anything like that. Just off to a sight or two, lunch, a rest stop or two and meander back to town. Can even include a "long route and short route" scenario so there is an option on each ride.

I wouldn't even call it a guy thing. May as well be open to all. Most likely, a couple of the wives will be coming along. My wife is learning to handle her Phantom pretty well.

Have you considered a Monday or something instead of the weekend ?

Week days preferable for less tourist traffic

Any day is good with me, as long as I get a little bit of notice ahead of time. And the day can vary from month to month. Don't need a strict schedule. However, some of the crowd do have jobs during the week and on Saturdays (teachers) and will only be able to attend on weekends or holidays when the schools are closed. So, there might be some calls for a weekend ride occasionally.

Anyway, who wants to suggest the first date and destination? I don't know the routes and kilos to the interesting spots around here. I don't get out much. And don't let jubby suggest the destination. We'll all be whacking weeds and shearing sheep at his place for the afternoon.

So just when is the barbecuejubby. I am sure kd can bring the bbq if you have the sheep ready.

barbecuejubby is hopefully off the menu. So are the sheep for the time being.

I suppose as Kd is worried about a sore Ass, he'd better suggest the mileage for the first trip and we can go from there. The ride down past your place to the national park/Hotsprings is a nice little trip. there's a motorcycle bridge where you can cross the river but I never found it. could make it a more interesting trip. There's Dons place on that route too. of he's still there.

Hot springs out past Don's sounds good. That road does continue on to somewhere but I have no idea where or what lies beyond the pot laugh.gif springs.

I am told that there are eating places out there at the springs.

Old jail sounds like a good meeting place. 7-eleven nearby for purchasing those last minute drinks and smokes.

If those suggestions are okay, then the next step is to find out when the rest of the folks can make it. Any of the days of the week that end in y are my sex days. Any other days are okay by me. But I have a commitment tomorrow and Saturday. Most of you probably have a commitment on Hash Saturday.

Don't fret about my ass. If it needs a break, I'll take a break. I know where to find you guys. I dunno why you guys always find my ass so interesting anyway. The women, I understand. But the rest of you?!?!?!?

The sheep thing sounds interesting. Send pics. I'll see if one will fit the grill.

Will take your word on the route. As usual you guys are talking coded gibberish to me. I live next to a National Park but no hot springs and maybe Dons' place is the restaurant not one of the tribe, so I am guessing you are talking somewhere else otherwise I move the spare expresso machine into the garage, sit on the garden swing and wait for you all to ride by. Exciting. At least I have good coffee!

No sheep around here. I could ask the district veterinary inspector to rustle a few up if you like?

I wouldn't steer you wrong. Don's can be found on the Google map. The hot springs can as well.

Check out Sven's Chiang Rai Google map creation from the pinned section of the CR forum.

http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&ll=19.911303,99.835768&spn=0.019005,0.027466&z=15&msid=102422258087313895472.000466b6884458b352d35

At the left of the page is a legend, which is for the most part, listed alphabetically. You can click on Don's, Hot Springs or Hot Springs Swimming pool and the map jumps over to those locations. You can then zoom out on the map to see the route to and from CR. The springs shown there are apparently two different locations. But one hot springs out there does have a concrete swimming pool. The springs would be a pretty short day ride but, as I said, the road does continue on from there.

Sounds like raylo just invited us out to his place. That would be a nice ride. Then swing by VFvill and then back into town via Happy City to checkout the sandpile. ;)
