We ask for riders to fill out a riders background form prior to booking. Most groups and individuals are booking more than 4 to 6 months out. Vital information is  your dates,  numbers in the group, how many days and rider experience. We are happy to join up like skilled individual riders for tours also.

The Bikes: a selection of XR250CC  , XR400,  WR250

Note : We own and maintain all our own  bikes in our dirt bike shop, 15 in total at any one time. The bikes have been prepared carefully for the trip,  fitted with good tires and checked over. A lot of you  are riding higher end bikes back home and finished with  these a few years ago but these are the best fit for here.. solid,  dependable and for those that think you are good - it can be quiet difficult to stay on!

Our tour leaders acts as your guides, mechanics, advisors, translator and many other roles all in one.  HCDB team transports all equipment with them to carry out minor repairs and spares, if needed, while on tour. We have additional Hidden Cambodia reps,  sweepers & support staff  (cooks, mechanics, security) that travel with larger groups to assist at no additional cost.

Support Vehicle: We have an accompanying 4WD if riders do not want to carry anything with them on the bikes on their backs.   Cost for support vehicle is  $185 per day for vehicle,  the cost being divided between the number of riders. This support vehicle will carry cold boxes of pre ordered beer, water,  food for remote camp outs in remote locations if needed and all luggage.                                                     

Equipment: If you have your gear, best to bring it especially goggles knee & elbow protectors but we have equipment here for guests use . The pros come in with all their own gear. We are happy to store luggage for people in the base house while they are on tour. 

Pillion passengers not ideal but they pay only a charge for their expenses if travelling on the back of their partner’s bike.  Guests can also ride on the back or one of our guides but pay the rate of a dirt bike tour rider.

The routes matched to the riders: They vary. Some more difficult challenging routes can be classed as Enduro and with a combo of Motocross. These routes are usually 5 to  7 day rides and are for  experienced riders, those who ride/race regularly at home and for whom riding is a major sport, hobby, major interest,  life passion. Have all the gear and gadgets. Looking for new wide open ground which is difficult or next to impossible to get at home. Add to that a remote and difficult route that could have either sand (powder) or mud (a special Cambodian consistency) or both depending on what time you are in and where you ride.  

Routes also for those that... ride at home, have their own bike/bikes, will buy a bike, want to fine tune their skills, happy to ride for five to 7 days, interested to see the culture and ride at the same time or those  not in any big hurry. Medium to Good riders. May have done a lot of dirt or may have done years of black top road before and some dirt. Able to control their speed. Inclines, bridges, hard ground, medium dirt road, some bumps,  some sand,  some mud ok

Routes for those that have not been on a bike for a few years but after one day they are back into it, interested in a nice pace, regular stops, meet the people.

Routes that have fairly flat dirt road all the way!

Routes for first time riders/learners- hand picked for them to practice their newly learned skills.

Dirt Bike Groups:
We can cater for up to 21 riders in addition to our own team that travels with the group. We offer discounts for groups of 6 or more and tailor make complete packages that include everything -  hotels, airport  transfers, , Angkor , city  & cultural tours  tours throughout the country, anything you need  before and after the tour. We also pick up in Bangkok and all borders.
  The Hidden Cambodia Adventure Tour office supports these logistics.

Accommodation in Siem Reap: We have a range of hotels  that we book for our clients  that vary in terms of budget, location and strong points. For guests that book all services with us (airport transfers, accommodations, Angkor and other tours), we can offer discounted packages. See our accommodation page

Pre-trip Meeting: For all those travelling on a 3 day tour , we will meet them on their arrival in Siem Reap  before the trip departure to discuss the route and all aspects of the trip. Those undertaking a 5 day trip or more, we ask that they be in Siem Reap by 2pm the previous day to discuss the route, check bikes and complete remaining payments.  

After all of that, our tours are personalised, exciting, exceptionally good fun, and ever day, as Cambodia expands and develops, an eye opener into a way of life that has existed here for thousands of years and the new Cambodia that is emerging. Get in early. See it for yourself. People keep coming back. A trip of a lifetime.

A perfect location to ride…. South East Asia…… Cambodia

Many are interested in the temples but as always, for many bikers; it is the ride there rather than the destination that is important!

Ride Free.. Ride Safe into the Hidden Cambodia.
