Biking In Bangkok

Just like in New York, Biking in Bangkok seams impossible to do. The city center is so crowded that you can hardly move – by taxi, by tuk-tuk, by bicycles or even on foot. The only reason we joined a bicycle tour in Bangkok was our curiosity to see the magic happen. And magic it was!

Biking In Bangkok

Surfing the Internet for “bicycle tours Thailand” gave us many results. The one that caught our eyes was the website of Spice Roads – a bicycle touring company specializing not just in Biking in Bangkok, but also in bicycle riding all over the Far East (Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, China, Japan, Bhutan, India and more).

As we did not have more than one day, the best trip for us was the “Bangkok Jungle” half-day trip.

It was not a typical “mountain biking in thailand” experience, but it was not an urban biking experience either.

Picture Worth a Thousand Words

They say that “a picture is worth a thousand words,” so I will just show some of the many pictures we took on our trip to Bangkok.

Besides being extremely enjoyable, this trip made us crave more, “real” mountain biking in Thailand.

Not so long after this trip, we were on our way to our next bicycle tour in Thailand – this time to the northern part of the country – Chiang Mai.

Did you know...?

Biking In Bangkok

Did you know that secondary roads in Thailand are easily recognizable because they all have three-digit numbers?

The traffic conditions on Thailand's major roads can often be hellish during peak hours with cars, bikes, motorcycles and tuk-tuks vying for space, so being able to identify these less-crowded secondary roads will save you a lot of time and frustration.
