    We booked this day to have a full on day of cycling but hopefully not too arduous for the 50-something Dad accompanying two boys of 10 and 12! We are not hardcore mountain bikers by any means, but we are reasonably fit/competent nonetheless. It was a long but very fulfilling

    Thanks for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. We're glad you had an awesome time with Trailhead Thailand! We do try to go the extra mile to offer a high quality service and equipment so its nice to see you appreciated that. Our Buffalo Solider tour does present a few challenges in the rainy season as you mention but for those seeking an introduction to Chiang Mai mountain biking its a good option for those with experience. Thanks again and we hope you can join us again in the future.

    I am a fairly experienced mountain biker but the two people with me were newbies. Trailhead helped us pick the best trail so that all three of us could have a great time. Our guide Kom was excellent too! Great views and fun riding. I was very satisfied with our experience.

    The buffalo soldier tour was a challenging, but great experience. Since there haven’t been other bookings for this tour on that day, they did the tour just for us two. We were provided with water and a lunch box at the cafe (they offer also pick up at the hotel), then one guide
