It sounds like a lot of the offshore guys will be back for Friday 15th march, 2013, a lot of rider's have expressed interest in a group ride for that day, so could be a reasonably sized group.


With 9 days to go, maybe we can throw some ideas as to a route, maybe even an overnight, 2 day route if people are interested. That would then throw Pai, MHS or Mae Chaem/ Doi Inthanon into the ring too.


Come forth with your ideas.:RO

Some ideas:

- 2 days with Mae Sariang as base.
- 2 days north of Pai (Pai or Wiang Haeng as base).
- 2 days to Khun Yuam, some great easy woods trails to go there from Wat Chan.
- 1 day starting from Mae Win, a big loop in the Ob Khan national park (trail Alex, Matt, Johny and me did a few months ago). Easy and nice trails.
- 1 day from Sameong, lot of possibilities from there.

Many and my perfect bike has 250cc.
I don´t know, if I´ll be back from Kan. If so, I´m in. Equal where. Mae Sariang can be done maybe on the way back. Kan - Tak - Mae Sot - Mae.Sariang. Unfortunatenaly my wife does´nt want to drive the truck, otherwise I could do Umphang.
Khun Yuam OK, Pai not. Ob Khan NP fine.
CU at MX-GP
bye

I'm in for next Friday, 2 days away would be nice. Mae Sariang is awesome, must remember and take along some flippers this time. Rivers should be down a wee bit now?
All those places mentioned above are excellent choices.

Not sure who will be coming at the end, as far as I know Johnny and Harry can't make it. So maybe do a good 1 day trip would be better.

What about the "1 day starting from Mae Win, a big loop in the Ob Khan national park (trail Alex, Matt, Johny and me did a few months ago)."?

For those who don't know, Mae Win is about 50km south west of Chiang Mai. It's just after Mae Wang, a place where there is a lot of rafting along the river. The way to go is pretty easy:

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Mae+Win+Mae+Wang+Chiang+Mai+Thailand&hl=en&ll=18.654865,98.693361&spn=0.015858,0.027122&sll=18.710805,98.917122&sspn=0.06341,0.173893&oq=mae+win&hnear=Mae+Win,+Mae+Wang,+Chiang+Mai,+Thailand&t=h&z=15

We can meet in Mae Win and go from there, lot of possibilities. A good place to meet is right there:
https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Mae+Win,+Mae+Wang,+Chiang+Mai,+Thailand&hl=en&ll=18.653229,98.692406&spn=0.004005,0.006781&sll=18.790008,98.994284&sspn=0.015845,0.043473&oq=mae+win&t=h&doflg=ptk&hnear=Mae+Win,+Mae+Wang,+Chiang+Mai,+Thailand&z=17&layer=c&cbll=18.653276,98.690288&panoid=wFiy8v1gzhNWK3ZezcxZzw&cbp=12,258.88,,0,12.7

There is a Belgian guy Nino who is coming with 2 friends, I'm in as well, Ton might be coming. Who else is coming?

In principle I wud like to join in.
Haven't done much in the Mae Win area, so wud be new to me.
Some GPS co-ordinates & meeting time wud be useful once its finalized.

Ended up being only Russ and myself. We had a great ride with very various type of trails in a one day ride:
single track, rock tower climb, truck road, bamboo trail, jungle (river crossing) trail...

I never really take much time for picture (I should...) so here is only 1 picture on the jungle trail:

On the way back I finally found out where this "lake in a quarry" is, looks very fun to jump from the ledge!

Here is the gpx file of the day:
