murrah farm (175km): 9-may-2009

even though i left > 1 hr late (another stupid alarm clock failure), excellent ride to murrah farm. routes 3121-3010 were very nice riding terrain--rolling terrain with plenty of curves & not too much traffic. some bad road surface patches along the way (even trucks had a hard time w/a few spots) but nothing catastrophic. farm owner said she'd heard that TAT was looking at this route for some kind of bike tourism. i'd agree 100% if they fixed the road ;-)

the farm itself was quite interesting though you'll need to hoof it for 50 or so meters as the road down to the farm is dirt. owner was friendly & informative. had the best fresh mozzarella i have ever eaten. definitely worth the trip, for sure will do another ride there.

I notice you haven't updated in a while- are you still in BKK? I'm moving to BKK in a few weeks and am interested cycling groups and tips. Might you have any suggestions?

sorry didn't see the 2nd question.

i don't normally ride w/clubs & when i do it's usually thai clubs. there's a farang one, peleton de bangkok: i think this is their usual route:

also a farang cycling forum here:

don't know what i can tell you as far as "tips" goes except don't ride in the city ;-) if you have specific questions?

I wish to visit Thailand at the end of July.
I want to visit some factories of bikes and bicycle components, because I want to import from Thailand.

Can you please give me some information's about the factories from Bangkok (and surroundings)? Or some contact details?

Thank you,
