Cycling in Thailand is continuing to be a very popular pastime for both Thais and expats. In recent years, the number of cyclists on the roads has increased greatly. I often see people cycling along the roads at the weekend. I joined their ranks just over a year ago and I’m out cycling most weekends. You can either do this by yourself or join bicycle groups. Some are more serious than others. One I like to join is the Bangkok Car Free Sunday group who organize a tour in Bangkok about once a month. It is free to join though the tour guide usually only speaks Thai. Here is the information for this weekend:
Sunday 12th August 2012
7:00 a.m. Meet up at the riverside park under Pinklao Bridge on the Thonburi Side
7:30 a.m. Ride along Boromrajjachonnee to St Peter School, pick up hand-out and refreshments
8:30 a.m. Ride along Putthamonthon 1 Road to Bangramard Canal Community
9:00 a.m. Arrive at Bangramard Community and participate in community service activities, learn about the people’s traditional way of life, visit shops and cafe.
10:30 a.m. Stop by Klong Lad Mayom Floating Market
12:00 p.m. Head over to Wat Sapan Floating Market for shopping and lunch
