After the hustle and bustle of Bangkok for nearly a week, we decided to get some exercise and spend a day cycling.  We decided to do a tour with Absolute Explorers and catch a train to the countryside.  The guide was fantastic, having spent nearly a near cultivating the local villagers/monks/head man/school which made for a really good welcome where-ever we went.   Even the local food sellers on the train were friendly and we tried a rice dish wrapped in a banana leaf.

A schoolgirl came with us, and the Headman greeted us.  Clive was asked to give an impromtu speach at the monthly farmers gathering.   (They loved him!)     

All in all, I think we cycled 15 miles -  at our own speed -  but it was hot.
