Enter Wildside Chiang Mai. At first glance, some may say this is not a bike park. It isn’t. It’s a bike playground and a mini bike lifestyle eco-system. This concept works perfectly for Chiang Mai.

At about the time when I was about to give in to bias opinions within my old-school-klunker brain, I got a call from Specialized’s Asia Pacific office. Soil Searching is coming to this region and Bikezilla was invited to the Trail Builders’ Summit at Minami-Alps, Japan. This marked the first step to my soul-searching trip.
