Siem Reap Countryside Bike Ride
Escape the tourist trail for a scenic sojourn in the Cambodian countryside on this easy 4.5-hour bike excursion from Siem Reap. Wind your way down dirt tracks and hidden trails on an 18-mile (30-km) circuit through rural villages, rice paddies and sugar plantations. Stop along the way to meet the locals, sample typical Cambodian snacks (included) and witness traditional crafts like basket weaving. This small-group tour is limited to 14 people for a personalized experience.
What to Expect
Start your half-day tour at a bike shop in central Siem Reap, where you’re fitted with a mountain bike and helmet. Then, set off with your group and follow your guide on a paved road alongside the Siem Reap River.

Soon leave the tarmac behind, pedaling down small dirt paths through the scenic countryside to nearby villages. Expect friendly greetings from locals as they go about their daily activities such as rice farming, palm wine and sugar production, and basket weaving.

En route, stop to sample snacks (fruit and bottled water are also provided throughout the tour) and chat with your guide about rural Cambodian life. Then hop back on your bicycle and ride along more village roads, returning to the bike shop in Siem Reap around midday. 
Please note: This bike tour covers a distance of approximately 18 miles (30 km). The ride is mostly on flat paths and small roads without hills, with some small dirt trails unsuitable for beginning riders.

Depends if your bus is on time. If you actually arrive at 6 it shouldn’t be a problem
