Itinerary

Gather at the Grasshopper Shop

Meet at the Grasshopper Adventures Shop near MRT Sam Yot Station at 8:30 am. The bike tour will depart at 9 am sharp. After a quick bike fitting and briefing, we hit the bikes. It takes a few kilometers to reach a bit of greenery, but on the way you'll bike through tiny alleyways with dense housing - more like cycling through people's living rooms for an authentic view of life in the big city.

Out of the city

Once on the outskirts of Bangkok, there are few cars but many locals happy to see foreign visitors cycling in their neighborhood. Lunch is included at a delicious local eatery where you can sample world-famous Thai flavors. There is great variety in the terrain we cover as we jump from communities living along the canals to market gardens to wooded plots to ancient ruined temples all within sight of Bangkok's skyscrapers but far from the city’s chaos. We will stop at a few temples of historic importance: Wat Chaloh and Wat Kaew Fah. We will also pedal through areas with some agriculture - plant nurseries and orchards mostly. While this tour does not quite reach the countryside, there is still a countryside feel in some sections. On the return to Bangkok, we wind our way back through the alleyways and finish at the Grasshopper Shop.

The ride is a total of 37 km and the tour takes approximately 7 hours, usually finishing at around 4 pm but this is variable by group and ability.

You will spend most of the day in the saddle, and while the total cycling distance is not that long, it can get hot. The cycling is moderately technical with sections along narrow raised concrete paths so this tour is suitable for more experienced cyclists. We’ll pedal concrete, dirt bike trails and one or two rough spots, but mostly cycle the backstreets and alleyways. There are some main roads to cross but we do this as a group and Bangkok drivers are very courteous when it comes to crossing the road.

The tropical sun can be quite fierce, so we recommend you use some sunblock or if you prefer a natural option, long sleeves for your arms and Buff headwear for your neck.

Older children and teenagers can do this tour if they are experienced bikers and able to spend the whole day out on a bicycle. We do not recommend this tour for young children.
