The event, scheduled to take place on 30 July and 17 September, this year, will take in some of the best scenery in Ratchaburi and Chiang Rai.

Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn, TAT Governor said,

“Thailand is one of the perfect destinations for a cycling tour thanks to its challenging hills and scenic routes. We want this Cycling Tour Challenge to act as a showcase and attract international cyclists to visit our country and enjoy their sport here. The event will also inspire local people to take up this healthy activity and explore the kingdom’s scenery.”

The Thailand Cycling Tour Challenge is being organised by keen cyclist Mr. Changnoi Kunjara Na Ayudhya and is held in cooperation with Singha Corporation.

The event comprises two events in two Thai destinations.

We hope this Thailand Cycling Tour Challenge encourages people young and old to get out on their bikes, enjoy the best of Thailand, and discover a healthy hobby that all the family can enjoy.”
