The route 1020, 1155, 1093, 1210, 1345, 1021, 1222,

Total distance 359 km
Image
I ride out of town at 8am along the 1020 on another cold morning then take a left onto the 1155 and as I climb it gets really foggy
Image

Image

Image
As I ride further it clears a bit
Image

Image
The 1155 is the best road out here in my opinion as it has curves like this for a very long way
Image
I take a left onto the 1093 to ride to Phu Chi Fa
Image

Image

Image
I park the bike and start to walk to the summit, the kids are here with their wares
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
I reach the top and its not as foggy as I feared
Image

Image
Its a bit hazy and not as clear as I expected
Image

Image
Usually I can see the Mekong from here but not today
Image

Image

Image

Image
Wonderful views whichever way I look
Image

Image
Time to walk back down, I never saw a single foreign tourist here today, not that there were many Thais either
Image
I ride southwards along the 1093 today as its a road that I havent ridden for a few years and along here I spot these tents
Image

Image
At N19.47.076 E100.24.091 this road is to my right, it is not on my Thinknet map but shows on the gps as still the 1093, looking at this I have to ride it
Image

Image

Image
Its a winding twisty fun road that gets a bit pot holed as it nears the 1155, it joins the 1155 at N19.47.417 E100.20.476
Image

Image
As I reach the 1155 I turn around to enjoy it again in the opposite direction
Image

Image

Image
Last time I rode along the 1093 the surface wasnt the best, since then it has vastly improved with a better newer surface like this in places
Image

Image

Image
I stop for a short break at Phu Sang waterfall
Image
From here I carry on along the 1093 taking a left that goes for about three km to the Lao border but nothing here no market or anything.
I take a left onto the 1210 then a bit further on a left onto the 1345
Image
The landslip that Ben reported is still there, no clean up yet
Image
My first time along here and its looking good
Image
I reach the unmade section at N19.31.174 E100.24.527, its quite a rough section too with more work required before its ready for asphalt
Image
1.2 km of unmade then its back to asphalt at N19.30.868 E100.25.063
Image

Image

Image
I ride to a village at the end of the road and stop for a look around
Image

Image

Image

Image
The paved road finishes at N19.29.941 E100.27.456 and I guess this is the track that joins the 1160
Image

Image
From here its back to the 1093 where I turn left and take a right onto the 1021 then the 1222 to enjoy the 1155 back home
Image
I eat at a 99 Baht buffet next door to the Madame Country Pub
Image

Image

Image
Standard food
Image
Plus ice cream.
