    CucPhuong to YenCat
    Wake up early for a jog around the park, or just listen to birds and the Gibbon at the Primate rescue centre nearby. Put on your tough suit today – Itʼs a long day, but we are well ready for it. We ride on a small broken tarmac road, which winds around the lime stone mountain ~ 10km through the buffer zone of CP Park. Make sure your tyres are thick enough for this road, slowdown and avoid the pot holes. We enjoy a down hill to Kim Tan town, cycling a small route that connects to Camthuy. From here, we have a fast stage on smooth tarmac along the HCM highway to Ngoc Lac and other touring stages to Lamson and Yen Cat. Today offers some gentle hills, but not much climbing.
