The rides

Hares

Tamas B, Sara 'Likes it Rough' M, and Richard 'Right Arsehole' F

What to expect?

Saturday

The Saturday ride will include pushing your bike up hill for upto 15 minutes dependant on your fitness. (It is advised you take your time here so you can enjoy the forested hill top views which are a big part of the Saturday ride). There is a shortcut home along the road, which is mostly down hill. The ride is mostly made up of farm tracks, connected by some single track riding. There are also options to cut some corners and shorten the 42km ride.

Sunday

Sunday is much less hilly and we hope, accessible for all types of riders. The whole ride will be around 22 km's, with a number of opportunities for riders to take shortcuts directly back to the resort. The ride itself starts out pretty flat and gets hillier and prettier later on.


Misdirections

From downtown Bangkok, take any expressway in the direction of Dao Khanong and take Rama 6 bridge across the river. Continue on highway 35 until the end (just past KM-marker 83) and exit left to highway 4, direction Phetburi (going south). Zero odometer when exiting 35 to go on 4 and follow instructions below.

  • 13.6 km - After having passed a Shell gas station on your left, take the next U-turn on the right (just past highway 4 KM-marker 138 on your right)
  • 14.3 km - Almost immediately after taking the u-turn exit left to the service road (don’t miss this first exit unless you like U-turns a lot)
  • 15.5 km - Take a left (a sign ‘Sawang Resort Left’ can be admired a few hundred meters before the junction)
  • 15.9 km - Cross a canal (take the bridge) and watch out for traffic left and right
  • 18.8 km - Turn right into the resort. At the roundabout, a first right will take you in the direction of the reception.

The drive should take 1.5 hrs, this is dependent on the time you leave and can take longer.
It is possibly worth checking google to get a better estimate, so there are no surprises.
