Bangkok to Phuket Cycle 2015

Thailand - What a marvellous country!

I recently took part in the Bangkok to Phuket Cycling tour with our local operator in preparation for our tour next year – Bangkok to Phuket.

I’ve been to Thailand a few times before but in previous days I travelled with a backpack not a bicycle!

I knew the food would be great and people friendly but the smooth and rolling roads were a pleasant surprise.

Over 9 days I cycled over 500 miles across the country witnessing some fantastic sights and experiencing some unforgettable memories.

The daily cycling distance varies from 48 up to 83 miles but I can honestly say that the weather, food and roads make every day a pleasure.

As well as the cycling, there are plenty of opportunities to relax in the pool, try the Thai cuisine and enjoy a few Thai beers!

I'm now very much looking forward to the 2016 Challenge Central trip, starting on 26th November.
