We advise you bring cash for this. It is required that all members of the trip offer a minimum US$160 donation for a charity we decided upon over the course of the trip.

Frequently Asked Questions
We cycle five days out of ten to cover the 450km between Phnom Penh to Siem Reap, with optional additional cycling in and around the cities we stop at in between.
There is a support van that will be able to drive you the distance you don’t want to cycle.
Pack light. A few light weight shirts – one or two long sleeve shirts to avoid an unwanted sunburn, sneakers, shorts (it can get pretty muddy), and something a bit fancy for dinner. And when we say fancy, we mean anything outside of your comfortable gym clothes. It’s easy enough to purchase any last minute amenities like toothpaste and moisturisers in the larger cities. You’ll find that it’s handy to carry a small bottle of sunscreen, insect repellent and band-aids. Take a convertible adapter so you can charge your cameras and phones etc.
We won’t facilitate a trip where there is political unrest. The people of Cambodia, for example, are incredibly friendly and crime rates are low. The Australian Government recommends to ‘exercise normal safety precautions’ which is the same advice given for New Zealand and the UK. See Smart Traveller for more information.
We’ll always be in an air conditioned room. If you’re travelling with your partner, you’ll have your own room. Otherwise, rates are based on twin share.

Here’s the part nobody really wants to read. However, it’s important to read and understand the following terms and conditions before you book your tour with Social Cycles.
1. Passport and visas
You must carry a valid passport. Your passport must be valid for 6 months beyond the duration of the trip. Please ensure that you are in possession of the correct visas, permits and certificates for your trip, unless otherwise stated that Social Cycles will provide as part of the tour service for your particular trip. If you are travelling on an Australian passport, you can receive your Tourist Visa at the airport for US$30. We advise you bring cash for this. It is a chaotic cultural experience.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you obtain proper and detailed medical advice at least two months prior to travel for the latest health requirements and recommendations for your destination.
Cambodia is hot. Temperatures can soar above 40+ degree Celsius and cycling 100km in these conditions require a certain level of fitness and endurance.
