First International Cycling Tour - Cambodia


28th September - 2nd October 2022

This was our first international cycling tour, with a 200+ KM ride spread across five days, we covered  the World Heritage Site in Siem Reap including Angkor Wat, Bayon, Ta Prohm, Banteay Srei and Tonle Sap Lake. The highlight being the ride to focus on Tamil Connection in Cambodia with a ride to Banteay Srei tracing the Tamil Saint Karaikal Ammaiyar panel 

We also attended the unveiling of the Saint Thiruvalluvar Statue at the Provincial Government Office in Siem Reap. On the final day went on a City exploration ride and got to understand the existing Bicycle Infrastructure that is aiding the Tourism Industry, and the impetus given to Bicycle Tourism.

Thanks to all the riders Srini Swaminathan , Girish Mallya, Arul Nidhi Subramanian ,and Nithi Anand. Also thankful to Angkor Tamil Sangam, importantly for giving us a wonderful Bicycle Guide Bun Von.
