Image
On the canal road heading north from the 1096 on the left side of the canal
Image

Image
The canal veers off to the right
Image

Image
This is a well surfaced twisty road
Image
I take the 3009 and take a left to try out a new road for me that leads to the 1095
Image
The road turns to unpaved at N19.02.167 E098.51.630

This is a most enjoyable track, not too rough and most importantly its a dry surface

Image
I run into the concreting gang
Image
Help was needed to get through here, they put some large stones down for me to ride over the shuttering then the concrete pipe was rolled out the way and then finally the bike was manhandled through
Image
Anyone coming through here in a four wheeled vehicle would have been turned back
Image

Image

Image

Image
A few wooden bridges were crossed today but all safe ones

The permanently paved surface starts at N19.06.770 E098.46.640 and just past here is the Mokfa waterfall, I dont bother walking to it
Image
A short way along the 4020 and a new resort by the look of it

The 4020 has some nice curves
Image
Plus good scenery
Image

Image
I ride along the 3162 and before reaching the 107 take a right onto an unnumbered road that also goes to the 107, this was along that road
Image
I take a right to head south and reach the canal road
Image
As I am only about 1 km south of the Mae Taeng river I ride north to the source of the irrigation canal
Image
I am now standing in the middle of the Mae Taeng but as I am standing on the weir I remain dry as all the water is being diverted into the irrigation canal
Image
Here is where the water is all flowing to
Image

Image
Nice well tended grounds here

I ride back along the canal then take a right over it and the road turns to dirt at N19.07.866 E098.55.457 until N19.07.356 E098.55.208 where its an asphalt surface and is the 4235.
South of the 1095 I encounter another short spell of dirt between N19.04.364 E098.52.119 and N19.04.235 E098.52.094
