Cycle Trip Out of BKK Cycling Review

Spice Road Tours organise cycling trips in many places in Asia and I booked a trek before going to Thailand for a Saturday afternoon 25km cycling trip into the unknown.

Getting across town and judging the time it takes was my biggest problem but once at the meeting point (30 minutes late) I was kitted up with helmet and TREK bike and off we cycled.

1st we took small back roads in order to get to the river, where we crossed to the southern bank. Cycling mainly at first on roads we got deeper into the countryside or swamps and raised concrete walk/cycleways.

It was fascinating to see some big house and also some tin huts dotted in and amongst the lush vegetation.

We came across many interesting markets, wats and local scenes.

We stopped for refreshments provided by our tour guide and then cycled back. maybe about 3 hours in the saddle and well worth the 1000 bht I paid
