The cycling is really fun, and mostly downhill apart from the occasional up hill. Riding through the villages and rice fields is a fantastic experience and a real highlight. The sights are wonderful and you would occasionally stop to take photos or take in some more information. There was a fruit stop and water was provided. Our guide will stop you at some rice paddies and you will have a short tutorial about rice growing. The rest of the ride is filled with some large hills and can be tough going. They will also stop you at a farm and showed us some prized fighting cocks and some very large cattle, it was interesting to see some real rural life.
