On a recent trip I made to the North I had two "missions" in mind. One was the jaunt on Doi Inthanon which I wrote about the week before last. And the other was an epic - for me, anyway - ride from Chiang Mai to Lampang.
Nope, I wasn't planning to take Highway 11, the main link between the two provinces. No way! That route's far too dangerous for a single-track lover like me; it attracts too many fast-moving cars, trucks and buses, often with crazy drivers. Not to mention the scorching sun.
