Our first Top Pick Event of 2016 is none other than the annual Bangkok to Hua Hin ride, being held on Sunday January 31st. This massive event is sure to draw thousands of cyclists, and this year’s ride will have an all new finishing point at the newly completed Rajabhakti Park just south of Hua Hin. In previous years the ride finished at the 19 Rai Park area on the north side of Hua Hin. One of the best aspects of this ride is that cyclists can join along any part of the planned 199 kilometer route. The organizers arrange for several water stops/break points in the ride but participants are free to pace themselves and ride at their own leisure.
JANUARY 31 – Sunday: Bangkok to Prachuap Khiri Khan
