Bangkok, 04 August, 2017 – The second of the two events in the Thailand Cycling Tour Challenge is coming up next month, on 17 September in the northern province of Chiang Rai and registration is open until 19 August to local and international road-racers and mountain-bikers alike.
The first event held on 30 July in Ratchaburi province proved a great success, attracting the participation and interest of avid cyclists and spectators from all over Thailand. The picturesque route made its way through forest and hill scenery across two distances – 109 and 62 kilometres – from the towns of Chombueng to Suan Phueng.
The upcoming second event promises just as much good, healthy fun and will feature two optional races, a 69 and 120 kilometre distance from Singha Park to Rai Choen Tawan. Registration is 900 Baht per entry, which includes bibs for cyclists and medals and trophies for the first three cyclists in each event.
Once again, registration is open until 19 August. So, if you are keen to ‘get on your bike’, get some healthy exercise and get a cyclists’ view of some of Thailand’s most picturesque scenery, then the Thailand Cycling Tour Challenge awaits you!
The Thailand Cycling Tour Challenge has been organised by Mr. Changnoi Kunjara Na Ayudhya, a keen cyclist himself, and held in cooperation with Singha Corporation.
Enthusiastically supporting the Thailand Cycling Tour Challenge is the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), as it continues with its drive to position Thailand as a sports hub.
Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn, TAT Governor, said “The Thailand Cycling Tour Challenge is playing a key role in helping to promote cycling in Thailand and enhance our sports hub status on various different levels. Sports tourism and sports events as such are invaluable when it comes to showcasing our country as a cycling destination, both on the local and international scene, and it’s done with a clean and green approach that inspires people to get outside and get involved in a healthy activity.”
