Full description
Meet your guide bright and early and pick up your bike and helmet for the ride – don’t worry, your guide will help you select the right size for you! You’ll get a quick lesson on safety, including proper practices and hand signals, as well as an overview of where you’ll be riding to. 

Start your adventure by exploring the village of Taungbe, which is a community of horse-drawn cart drivers.  Spend about half an hour biking around the village, and visit a small morning market where you will meet with a local family. They will share their story of local life in Myanmar before you go on to visit a 150-year-old wooden monastery that's in the village. 

From there, cycle for about 10 more minutes to reach Ananda Pahto, the most famous temple in Bagan thanks to its mural paintings and gorgeous ancient architecture. 

After another short ride, you will arrive at the spectacular Shwegugyi Paya. How spectacular is it? Well, its name translates to “Great Golden Cave,” so you're going to say it’s pretty spectacular. Keep the camera handy! 

Then, ride about another 20 minutes to reach the next village, Myingabar, which is famous for its bamboo products. From there, it’s a 15-minute ride past toddy palm trees to reach Dhammayangyi Pagoda – the largest Buddhist temple in Bagan. 

Feeling peckish from all that pedalling? Good! You’ll ride 30 minutes to Nyaung U for lunch at a local restaurant that is also a training school for disadvantaged youths. Dig into local delicacies that also help a good cause, before biking back to the starting point and bidding goodbye to your Bagan tour.
