Overview
Leave the bustling world of Bangkok behind on a 6-hour guided bike tour that takes you beyond city limits and into the Thai capital’s surrounding area. Meander along back streets, stop to view temples and snack, and enjoy a Thai lunch along the way. If you like both bicycling and traveling off the beaten path, this small-group excursion is for you.
What to Expect
Meet your guide at the bike shop near Khao San Road to receive a safety briefing and get outfitted with your high-quality bike and helmet.

This day bike ride is designed for those looking for a day on a bicycle out of the congestion of Bangkok. Winding your way out through the suburbs you will soon find yourself cycling in the outskirts of Bangkok where tall buildings are replaced by small wooden houses, roads become narrow concrete paths or dirt tracks and the crowds of people are replaced by the quiet of vegetation and trees.

Once on the outskirts of Bangkok there are few cars but many locals happy to see visitors cycling in their neighborhood. Enjoy a break for lunch at a delicious local eatery.

You will have a chance to stop at a few temples of historic importance including Wat Chaloh and Wat Kaew Fah. You will also pedal through areas with some agriculture - plant nurseries and orchards mostly. While this tour does not quite reach to the countryside, there is still a countryside feel in some sections.

Expect to ride 23 miles (37 km) in total; the mostly flat terrain consists of the smaller streets of central Bangkok, raised footpaths in communities along the canals and dirt roads in the lush farmland.

Your tour ends when you bike back to your starting point in the city.

Biking in Bangkok

Great Sunday morning cycling around the "lung of Bangkok" This experience showed us how the locals of the city live. The route was back roads and byways, with little major road cycling. My wife a non-cyclist enjoyed the experience and did not suffer after. Thanks...More

Good but overpriced

I signed up for the Bangkok oasis tour but they didn’t have enough people to run it so I joined the Bangkok trails tour. Short stretches of this tour were beautiful and enjoyable but the first hour is a lot of getting on and off...More

Thaks for your feedback for Bangkok Trails, riding with guide Tammy. Seeing another side of Bangkok on the back road gives the different experience from busy town to slower pace with small communities and local lifestyle on two wheels. :) Please come and join riding...More
