7 Mountain Biking

Mountain Biking Mountain bikes are available for hire at numerous places around the island. If you fancy an endurance test, then a simple circular route around the island probably suffices. Just remember to give yourself at least four or five hours, an make sure you're back before dark. Samui's roads are hair-raising at the best of times at night on a bicycle with no lights they're downright terrifying. Heading south from Chaweng presents the most arduous part of the journey - the steep hills between Chaweng and Lamai - out of the way first. From then on the road is relatively flat until north of Nathon, when easier gradients but longer hills lay in wait.
