Klaeng (Kevin Resort) Pluak Daeng = 70km
A great brekkie whipped up by Ebby the German owner of Kevin’s Resort before hitting the road. (We needed clarification as to why the resort had a random name then found out Kevin is his 14yr old son).
Once again we were keen to get off the busy highway and hoped that the Maps.me app “bike mode” would produce the goods and give us a good day in the saddle…………….and it didn’t disappoint.
We rode for 50km through rubber plantations on remote roads, repeatedly checking the app as it sent us even more remote deeper into the forest.
We had the road to ourselves except for the occasional house which of course had a minimum of 2 dogs that would get the adrenalin pumping as they chased us down the road.
Then the rain started coming down so we seeked some shelter and thought it was 1pm so let’s make it a lunch stop.
So here we are in Pluak Daeng. A small town 145km from Bangkok. Possibly might make it a 2 nighter as we may only ride for one more day before pulling up stumps to get the bikes serviced, boxed up and get a taxi into Bangkok on Saturday. Still working through the logistics on that one but not bad if that is our only stress!
That would have to be right up there as one of our most enjoyable days of riding in Thailand………….except the dogs. Maps.me bike mode and the navigators had a blinder!
