What should I wear? We recommend light cotton clothes. It is important to wear shoes that are possible to “close” by the foot. Please do not wear flip-flop sandals. If you are not wearing any of our helmets you should have something on your head. Beach attire is not permitted.
Isn’t it too hot to cycle in Bangkok? Thailand is situated in the tropical zone and it can be really hot. But you will be surprised that it is not hot to cycle. You always get a nice breeze from the speed, when biking.< It is a lot warmer to walk than cycle.
Is it dangerous? All our tours are planned to minimize the exposure to the traffic. Most of the routes we are using have no traffic at all. And if so we use the pavement. Of course it is important to keep the focus when cycling and respect the signs and instructions from our guides.
Is it a physical test to participate in your tours? Not really. Generally our tours are planned to suite anyone. But if you never bike at home you might get tired and feel it is a bit tricky. Luckily, Bangkok is flat, so we will not climb any hills.
Is it necessary to book in advance? Yes it is. You should book at least two days before you want to go. But if you need to be sure there is a place for you it is better to book well in advance, to avoid disappointments.
Is it possible to use camera or video during the tour? Of course. When we are biking you should keep your hands at the bar, but we will have several stops and give you many chances to take photos.
Are there any mosquitoes or other unpleasant animals? In Bangkok we have mosquitoes, but they usually appear along with the darkness. In Thailand there are a lot of different animals, but no one that will make the tour unpleasant for you.
What kind of bikes are we using? We use modern city-bikes. Hand breaks only, no coaster breaks.
If it starts raining……? Rain is rare in Bangkok. It is actually hard to find a better place for biking according to the weather. Anyway, if it is raining heavily, we have a break and wait. Usually it stops after 20 minutes. So far we had only five trips in twelve years been cancelled because of rain. Even if it is raining, please come to our office where decision is made of any delayed start.
Size of the group? Minimum 2 people, maximum 10.
What language is the guide speaking? We always have a guide talking English. Scandinavian and French languages are options on demand.
What is included in the tours? All our tours include guide and bicycle fee. Also all food and beverage that you need along the way. All entrance fees and fares for boat or train-transport. And VAT 7 %. In fact all is included.
Is it possible to bring my bag? Yes, but try to limit your things. It is possible to store your things at our office.
