The hills were alive, with the sound of huffing and puffing of riders, as they took on a the first 300 meter high hill starting just 2 km from the hotel they had spent Night 2. Over the hills and far away was Nakhon Thai. From Nakhon Thai it went 30 km up to Phu Nin Rong National Park, where for almost 15 years Thailand's remaining communist hid-out. The climb was tough with 900 meters climb over 10 km. On the top of the hill we had a pack lunch after which we went down ... fast
Sadly the day was not without incident. In trying to avoid an oncoming car, Jim fell on the grass verge during a descent. Unfortunately he had to go to the hospital for treatment and could not continue on the tour.
