Amazing Bike Tours was founded from a passion for traveling, visiting new places, meeting new people, escaping from the crowds, experiencing nature and most importantly a passion for doing all of these things on two wheels-mountain biking.

Mountain Biking allows you to access places not possible in most vehicles and the slow pace of travel allows one to really appreciate the environment through which we are traveling. The satisfaction and sense of achievement after tackling a steep ascent makes the breathtaking views that more spectacular as you have earned them.

The exhilaration of coasting down a hill with the wind in your hair, these are just some of the reasons why we love mountain biking in Thailand, Asia; and we can’t wait to share our passion for biking in Thailand with you.

The aim of Amazing Bike Tours is to offer unique cycling adventure holidays, that provide an alternative view of the host countries landscape, culture and cuisine. To provide safe, fun, exciting and challenging bike adventure tours.

Amazing Bike Tours was founded by James Hembrow. Born in Somerset, England as a boy James favoured cycling in the Somerset Levels and the Qauntock Hills opposed to playing football.

After leaving college James and his snowboard spent several seasons chasing the snow from northern hemisphere to southern hemisphere. His love of the ocean has seen him working around the globe as a Scuba Diving Instructor and dive shop manager in Australia, Thailand, French Polynesia and Honduras.

After numerous years working in the travel and tourism James has turned his focus from diving to his child hood passion of biking.

Southern Thailand offers excellent cycling locations, waking up in the morning and watching the sun rise over the islands, cycling through country roads and off road trails, jumping in a cool refreshing waterfall after a couple hours on the bike…I can’t imagine a better way to spend the day. We look forward to cycling with you in Thailand.
