Chiang Mai has developed a strong biking culture which has led 137 Pillars House to team up with Ron Gerrits from “Creating Balance” to offer a bespoke road biking menu for its guests.
Ron is a certified and registered international coach of the International Triathlon Union and the name of his company “Creating Balance” symbolizes the vision and manner in which he coaches and trains his clients.
As an active triathlete, Ron has over 30 years’ experience coaching various disciplines including triathlon, rock and alpine climbing, spinning and self-defense. The bespoke biking options can be customized to each guest’s requirements and fitness/training levels.
Rides can be arranged on flat terrain, hills or a mixture of both and for various distances and durations; 50-70 kms (2-3 hours), 70-100 kms (3-5 hours) or 100-150 kms (4-6 hours). Ron meets the guests the day prior to discuss the ride/training programme and confirm all the arrangements. Guests and bikers are collected from the hotel in a support vehicle on the day of the ride, that takes to them to the start of route and returns them to the hotel on completion of the ride.
