I rented bikes from The Battambang Bike few years ago and on a recent return trip to Battambang I popped in to set up a long-term rental with Sun. He remembered me and I was amazed to see how the shop and business had grown. Sun's passion for biking and outdoor adventure in Cambodia continues to grow and his customer service is second to none!

I did the full day tour with Sun yesterday, November 28, and I had him all to myself. He was sweet and kind and spoke English very well. I was nervous that a full day might be too long and that I might get tired or bored, but the day flew by - we saw and did so much! He took me to see families who make rice noodles, rice wine, bamboo sticky rice (yummy!), tri-bananas(sp?), spring rolls (sooooo good!), fish paste, crocodile farm (wasn't my favorite), local restaurant for lunch, bamboo train, suspension bridge... He was very thoughtful and asked me repeatedly if I was ok and if I wanted water. All the costs of samples, lunch and water were included the price of the excursion. He even took me to the local market to meet his family (and his beautiful two-year-old niece) which was so sweet! We had an adventurous return from the bamboo train when his bike got a flat tire, but he repaired it quickly like the professional he is (he had spare tubes, a pump and tools in his backpack). Unfortunately, it continued to go flat due to a sharp rim, but his twin brother met us at the suspension bridge with a tuk tuk full of bikes and he grabbed another one and we biked back. He was even kind enough to take me to buy my bus ticket to Phnom Penh for today. Sun is a very smart and kind young man and I would recommend this tour to anyone and everyone, regardless of fitness level. There are tons of stops along the way so you're never biking for a really long stretch, and Battambang is completely flat, so there are no hills to climb! (Tip - don't forget sunscreen! Even though yesterday was overcast and not overly hot, my shoulders got really sunburnt!)

Sun fitted us all out with good bikes and helmets .we then followed our incredibly knowledgable guide who willingly answered our questions and showed us so much. I learnt all about rice growing , the varied fruits and vegetables and we visited many local home businesses including , rice paper making , sticky rice and rice wine. Cycling is a wonderful way to see the countryside and a guide makes it even more worthwhile.

Had an excellent day with Sun. He took us to the country side where people earn a living everyday just to survive. Here is the list of events. Crocodile farm, rice paper making, fish farm,dessert making place, bamboo sticky rice, making place, banana chips, temple and the backside had the killing field with head skulls inside a monument. So sad. Easy ride in the country and city. I learnered a lot from Sun. I had alot of questions and he answered all of them. Good to understand the local culture. His English is good. Highly recommended this bike ride. He picked us up from the hotel and started at 1:30 to 6:00pm. Well worth the $18 per person.
