Our latest Top Pick Event in Thailand was a real tough choice because there are simply just SO MANY cycling events happening throughout Thailand this Fall. So rather than highlight ONE event we decided to pick a location – one city – where several different cycling events are being held. With a late night alleycat scramble, King’s Cup MTB Cross-country Classic race, Thailand Gravity Series Downhill event, and the Queen’s Cup road bike race all happening in one city, Hua Hin is certainly the place to be on any weekend this November. View these and other great cycling events in Thailand on our EVENTS calendar page.

We have made these races our most recent TOP PICKS because they represent a great selection of well-established cycling events that are taking place in a weekend destination city already popular with many Thais and Bangkok residents. We have now given you 4 great cycling opportunities to motivate you to get out of the big city and head down the coast to Hua Hin in November. Which bike you bring is completely up to you.
