About your host, Phat Tire Ventures

PTV Vietnam is the longest running adventure sports outfitter in Vietnam specializing in mountain biking, white water rafting, trekking, rock climbing and canyoning. We have offices in both Dalat and Hoi An.

What we will do

A 37 Km ride and another Dalat classic. This is the most physically challenging of our rides. This ride starts out with a good warm up before pushing through a series of punishing hills. Save yourself for the end on this one. Fantastic views throughout the ride and a great sampling of the terrain with lakes, pine forest and small country farms.

After this single track section we connect into a pine forested valley area to the east of Dalat. This is where the hills start to rise up in front of you. The trail varies between a wider dirt trail and technical single track.
This section of the ride has great rolling sections, some very tough hills and steep descents.

After we have pounded out the steepest (but thankfully one of the shortest) hill on the ride, we come to a beautiful clearing that looks out over the forested area to the north of Dalat. We take a well earned rest here to have lunch.
Lunch consists of fresh veggies and fruits, baguettes with an assortment of toppings and a French-style pastry to satisfy your sweet tooth. Dalat is known as the vegetable garden of Vietnam and lunch offers you a chance to try some of Dalat’s tasty produce.
After lunch we head out of the forest and back into the beautiful farmland area that sits at the mouth of the valley. We briefly overlap a section of trail ridden earlier and head back to Dalat on sealed road to complete a lopsided, crazy looking figure 8.

The total ride covers about 37 kilometers and moves from Dalat at 1500 meters to an elevation of around 1650 meters and then back down again. A great ride for those looking for varied terrain, a challenge and something slightly technical. Crazy 8 starts from Dalat and heads out to the east past Xuan Huong Lake and up through an area of flower farms. The road turns to dirt after 6 km and meanders around Victory Lake before turning to single track
