The route 1001, 1323, 107, 1150, 1346, 107, 1150, 1001

Total distance 337 km

I took the 1001 out of town and once you are about twenty five km out the road quietens right down and its a pleasant ride

The 1001 is a well surfaced good fun road

I take a left onto the 1323 to ride this road back to the 107

I have never noticed these before

I reach the 107 and turn right onto it, this picture is taken from the Chiang Dao bypass. I am surprised by how cold it is along the 107 when in the shade

I take a right onto the 1150

I dont know what it was with these two, they were both talking on their mobile phones from the 107 and both riding along at about 30 kph, I passed them a few times and each time I stopped they both came past together still talking on their mobile phones

A great bit of road along here that some of us enjoyed on the boxing day ride

I climb up some steep steps and at the top I find these workers

Their dogs soon run over

Mrs angry

But this one was much nicer

What are these crops I wonder


Some good views from up here

Now to climb back down these steep steps

I take a left onto the 1346

Another great road that I will never tire off

Great scenery along here as well as a good fun ride

I reach the 107 and turn left onto it, not far along and I am stopped and very thoroughly searched at a checkpoint. The contents of my panniers were carefully checked and I was patted down, no problems and everybody was very polite as normal. The 107 is a great road along this section but everytime I approached the long S bends theres a long line of tin boxes with a real slow twat at the front holding everything up

I turn left onto the 1150 to enjoy it twice today plus avoiding any more of the 107

I stop at the PTT/7-11 in Phrao and talk with these Thais from Chiang Mai, one of them was Tum from Yamaha. It was the first time that I have ever met him and a very pleasant knowledgeable informative guy he is to

Its the 1001 back home now

Another good days ride
