Alex - I'm up for any route. You plan the route and give us a meeting time and place. We'll be there.

Cheers, Matt

Is Death valley the one that climbs the southern side of Suthep from the Samoeng road?

if so maybe we can meet up somewhere near the start of the dirt trail off the Samoeng road at 10?

I'll plan a route, by 10pm, then we can meet at stadium, or by night bazaar.

I`d prefer nothing harder than last week.

How about this?
Singletrack down to the Mae Win dirt road, carry on and down the singletrack to link up with te Mae Win road, then on down there a bit to death valley, and back across country.
Shouldnt be difficult, keep moving and nice tracks.
Meet at 700yr stadium 10 am and head to start.
Unless anyone would rather meet up elsewhere, I'm easy

Was thinking to come down for it but managed to drop a bloody big plank of wood on my big toe yesterday... Balls. Least it's not broken - that would have really p'd me off! Enjoy.

Alex - does this route start and finish at the same place?? I can't follow the above map. I don't want to do loads of road miles as my bike doesn't like it. I take my bike in my truck to the start / end point.

Heres a loop with not too many road miles.
We could meet and park near the green arrow junction N18.77607 E98.85420
but now its 0720 friday, not sure who'll see this.
So I'll watch this space, if anyone wants to start there on the 1269,,ok,let us know, otherwise I'll be at the 700yr stadium 10am, and maybe we take a different route.

Alex it sounds like it`s just you me and Matt.

I`m fine for meeting at your above co ordinates.
I`ve got Matt`s phone number so i can call him if he doesn`t post here.

PM me you phone number? so i can get in touch with you.

edit; your co ordinates would be much better place to meet up.

ok, pmd you loop
check meet time with matt?
Should be somewhere good to park there
btw I am relying on matts comment about the bit SW from 1269, he said he did it recently and it was no problem.
was a different story last year when I did it
