We start at 7:30 from our conveniently located shop and ride through the back lanes to get out of town. We pass through fresh markets, lively neighborhoods and head for the north east of the city.
Countryside Riding: After only a short pedal we find ourselves in the true countryside where farmers tend to their fields and villagers go about the daily rituals that have remained unchanged for decades, if not longer. Water buffalo lazily roll in the mud, goats nibble at the foliage, and friendly locals wave from all directions.
Village Life: We make some interesting stops, first at a fresh market to learn about the different produce on sale and then continue on to see bamboo weaving which is used to construct everything from roofs and walls to fans. As we make our way to the countryside, we pedal through neighbourhoods on the outskirts of the city being greeted by friendly kids on their way to school. We take a walk through a typical central Myanmar village and learn about their way of life and their different crops. On our way back to town we stop at a tea shop for some delicious snacks and tea. We return to our shop at around 12:00 noon.
