The route 1169, 1081, 1333, 1257, 1225, 1168

Total distance 222 km

Leaving town and crossing the Nan river

I guess the rain from the other morning has freshened up the air a bit and certainly better visibility now

Lots of ridgeline riding today, this is the 1081 just off the 1169 end

The old narrower road has been widened to turn it into this but work appears to have stopped now with the new wide bit married to the old existing narrow bit.
Perhaps they have run out of money

Along the 1333 and the Wa river

The most surprising thing about todays ride was the fact that the 1333 has been cleared of all the loose gravel that has plagued it for years

At the junction of the 1333/1257 there is a brand new wide bridge replacing the temporary wooden one here last year

No expense spared on this baby

Great scenery today on what is my favourite Nan loop

More ridgeline riding on the twisty 1257

Todays is the 21st consecutive days ride since I got to Nan and the first one that didnt explore a new unmapped track, just a fun ride on old familiar territory today

Half a chicken, stuffing, roast potatoes, cauliflower and gravy for 220 Baht at Tony’s Place

  1. Thanks. As it turns out, I did an abbreviated loop spread over 2 days. I left Muang Nan after lunch on Monday, travelling the northern loop (1169 & 1081) and spent the night in Bo Kluea. Next morning, I waited for it to warm up a bit, then backtracked a bit on 1081 to turn onto 1333, with a short detour to see the suspension bridge in Baan Hang, and another on 1350 to see the Phu Fa Development Center. Continued on 1333 to 1257. Then north on 1225 to catch 1169 back to Nan. I didn’t add the southern loop into Mae Chaerim. Maybe next time.
