The Tiger Ride is a fabulous, relaxed 6-day annual overland adventure.


The ride starts in Langkawi and finishes in Krabi (at Ao Nang Beach.)


Each day you'll cycle approximately 75km (~35km before and after lunch), interacting with Malaysia and Thailand first-hand, enjoying the fabulous local food, seeing sides to these countries that are the privilege of the bicycle saddle. When the cycling is over you will see enjoy some of Asia's very best beaches, soak in hot springs and enjoy secret out-of-the-way places.


At the end, you'll not only have had a sublime active holiday, but you can boast of a brilliant achievement - cycling from Langkawi to Krabi! The old categories of "Mad Dogs" and "Wild Cats" have been merged. The daily distances of approx 70-75km per day are enjoyable for experienced cyclists and challenging yet very much within reach of those who are new to cycling.

Given that you arrive the day before, and probably leave the day after, it's an eight-day adventure holiday, fitting into a week off work. We believe that this meticulously crafted, revamped itinerary is our best ride ever!

The Tiger Ride


This is a scintillating and unique opportunity to experience a deeply personal interaction with Malaysia and Thailand – the people, the food, the landscape, the street life, the culture. You will have a privileged view of life in these countries, and support is always to hand when needed. The vehicle also available for those who have had enough cycling for the time being. At the end, you’ll come away with a great deal of pride, tons of stories and most likely many new friends.

“You have no such accurate remembrance of a country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” – Hemingway


Mad dogs have organised several fantastic events into Ao Nang over the last 11 years!


Established some eleven years ago in 2013, Mad Dogs, the organisers of the Tiger Ride have bags of experience all across East Asia in laying on a unique and superb event. Our first ride along this route took place in 2014.


By cycling through a country you will develop an intimate attachment both to its land and its people. It is immersive, like jumping into the sea with a scuba tank to explore a coral reef rather than looking through the window of the aquarium or glass-bottom-boat. A bicycle is the necessary ingredient that turns a “journey” into an “adventure.” You not only travel through a country but you live it and breathe it.
