Our Top Pick Event for the month of January is hands down the Ride to Khong’s Legendary 2017. This annual event is quickly becoming one of our favorites ever January because the organizers understand that having an informative, accurate, and bilingual website (up months before the event) is key to producing a top class cycling event. We really can’t say enough good things about the website for this grand cycling competition in Thailand’s northeast region. Check it out today if you haven’t already. The website has everything from route information to registration submission and detailed pricing explanation – all in Thai AND English.
The Ride to Khong’s Legendary road cycling competition is a great opportunity for amateur racers to participate in a multi-day/multi-stage event while traveling through an area of Thailand that is not as well known to foreigners and Thais alike. Another unique aspect of this event is the ability for racers to join an individual stage rather than commit to all three stages of the race, great for those who have limited holiday time or want to first test the waters of stage racing before getting in over their heads.
