Get your leg over and explore Bangkok on two wheels with one of these superb cycling tours.
Looking to keep your cool? Hop on Grasshopper Adventures’ excellent Bangkok Night Bike Tour, which cycles you through bustling backstreets and market, past ancient temples in balmier evening temperatures. The trip includes a ferry across Chao Phraya River (particularly snappable at sunset) plus a visit to Wat Pho Temple with street-food pit stops enabling maximum refuelling opportunity along the way.
Eschewing the well-trodden tourist trails, 30-year-strong ABC Amazing Cyclist will take you to the city’s lesser-known areas, unexpected backstreets and hidden green lungs. Ideal for returning visitors looking for a new perspective of the city, particularly fun are the Thai tapas or rustic village in a city Bang Krachao options. Book a private jaunt for a more personal exploration.
Best known for their adventure biking and SE Asia-wide trips, Spice Roads offer terrific 1-day out-of-Bangkok excursions. There are several off-road and jungle options available but a firm fave is the Khao Yai Wine Trail, a leisurely ride that takes you across the verdant Asoke Valley, stopping off to sample the locally produced, New World wines, but natch.
Launched as part of The Peninsula Bangkok’s 20th birthday celebrations, the Backstreets by Bike is an all-day 20 km excursion that takes in the city’s markets, riverside and historic alleyways. You’ll visit the traditional Baan Bu bronze workshop along with the Grand Palace and Wat Pho, all by by two wheels. Ready, steady, go!
