Ride Description  

This seminal tour begins in bustling Bangkok(BKK) on Saturday 7th Jan 2023, and lasts 13 days/12 nights with 9 full cycling days. We meet with the group at the fabulous Novotel Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport Hotel at 5pm, for a trip briefing and a welcome dinner with our support team. The following day, we fit our bikes, then hit the famous Bangkok Skylane for our warm-up ride. The afternoon is free to relax and ease into the new time zone, or if you’re feeling curious, take an exploratory jaunt into the city via the Airport Link express train. 

Our journey begins in earnest the next morning, starting in the peaceful rice-growing region of Minburi. all the way to the lush and green jungle on the outskirts of Khao Yai National Park, the Yosemite of Thailand where we tackle some challenging ascents riding into the upper reaches of the park in search of stunning waterfalls.

People Cycling's Ride Rating

People Cycling has four categories for our rides – Easy, Moderate, Difficult, and Challenging. It should be somewhat obvious what these categories mean, but please become familiar with the elevations and distances that define them:

Easy
Easy rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
Challenging
Anything over the Difficult rating

NOTE: This is not a strict guideline. There could be rides that have a day or two where the average elevation or distance exceeds the values given above. These anomalies should be outlined in the ride description. It is recommended that you read it carefully.

About People Cycling

People Cycling is a recently launched cycling club, which you can join for free, and is led by volunteer ride leaders. We will be offering tours in the United States and overseas. Our tours are made up of a small group of participants (typically 20-30 or so) who want to ride 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world.

Our ride leaders are volunteers and do not financially profit on tours they lead. They are also given broad discretion on how to lead their tours, and we consider them our greatest asset.

People Cycling tours are operated at cost or at lower cost (as negotiated by our ride leaders) than individuals can obtain on commercial tours. Within the cost of a tour, there is a nominal fee to support club operations and provide tools to ride leaders to manage their rides.

A lifetime membership in People Cycling is absolutely FREE, so please join us and become one of us – we the people, cycling together.
