Hanuman has just taken delivery of a fleet of new Giant Escaper Disc mountain bikes for cycling tours around Angkor, Phnom Penh and beyond.
New for 2011, the Giant Escaper Disc mountain bikes include a host of upgrades, including Shimano gearing, front suspension and disc brakes. These 24-speed bikes come in a range of sizes, including frame sizes from 15″ to 21″. Hanuman has also ordered smaller frame sizes that are suitable for shorter men or women, or children between the ages of 10 and 14, depending on their size. Based on earlier experience, Hanuman has also arranged comfortable padded saddles for all bikes, rather than the standard small saddles that most bicycles come with today. They also have extras like reflectors, mudguards and water bottle holders.
Adventure Manager Jake Corke has developed a new temple circuit around Angkor that includes Ta Prohm at dawn and backroads through the Angkor complex to Angkor Thom. This is the perfect way to beat the heat with an early ride to Ta Prohm and explore the jungle temple without the crowds. It also helps to avoid the noisy construction work taking place as part of the restoration of Ta Prohm. The ride includes smaller trails and backroads through Angkor Thom and will be unveiled later this month in conjunction with our Hanuman Siem Reap guide training.
Please do not hesitate to contact our Product or Adventure team if you have any specific questions about the new Giant moutain bikes.
