Thailand is a great place to ride a bicycle. The roads are generally in good condition, quiet and safe. The scenery is spectacular and varied, including rugged coastline, rural idylls and mountain vistas. The people are friendly and welcoming. The weather is great, especially during the European Winter.
Cycling is a splendid way to truly get to know a country. Traveling by bicycle it is possible to cover significant distances but the speed of travel allows you to take in the real character of the country. And inevitably one will see places, get to do things and meet people that the average tourist will miss out on.
I’ve spent a fair amount of time cycling in Thailand and plan on doing a lot more. In this blog I shall be sharing some of my adventures and experiences as I pedal the through the Land of Smiles.
