bangkok-bike13The first exhibition of its kind in the country, it is designed to promote the use of bicycles for both recreational and regular use and enhance the popularity of cycling tours for both local and foreign visitors. It is expected to be attended by at least 170,000 people over the four-day period.

TAT sees huge potential for bike tours to attract both Thai and international tourists and support provincial communities and areas as well as tourism operators. According to the Thailand Cycling for Health Association, about 260,000 local people and expatriate residents of Thailand use bicycles for recreational travel and tours, but this can be increased by at least 20% with further marketing support and infrastructure development.

TAT and the organising team have provided a 500-square-metre area to accommodate bike riders under the theme of "Let's Go Green." The riders and general public will get information on six suggested bicycle routes covering five regions, be able to attend a seminar on bike tourism and meet with tour operators, hotels, resorts, local products, and One Tambon, One Product products.
