As World Bicycle Day spins around again on June 3rd, digital travel platform Agoda shares five reasons you should explore the world on two wheels, as well as great cycling routes to help you get on your bike now or bookmark for later travel.

Reasons to get on your bike
Get closer to nature

According to Agoda’s Usage & Attitude Study 2019, Nature/Countryside is the top motivation for people to travel. Cycling gets you close to that with many cycle routes boasting and connecting scenic sights, nature parks and the countryside. Take in the sights at your own pace, hop on or off where you like, and quite literally stop to smell the roses.Unique experiences

Get to know a place, maybe even your own town or country, authentically; Traveling on two wheels allows you to easily navigate off the beaten track areas, go and stop where public transport might not take you, explore country lanes and tracks, meet the locals and experience travel from a different perspective.A rewarding workout

With health being a key topic in 2020, who would mind some exercise and have fun while at it? There is even greater satisfaction and reward in the experience when you’ve put in the effort to pedal the distance.Eco-friendly

Keen to reduce your carbon footprint? More than 25% of travelers want to make more eco-friendly travel choices in the next decade, according to Agoda’s recent Next Decade Travel Trends research. Cycling is an affordable and eco-friendly way to get around.It is all in the journey

You know what they say about how it is the journey that matters. It could be a challenging route with hills and climbs, or a few-hour family scenic cycle with the wind in your hair to a new part of town, traveling on a bicycle brings an incredible adventure from start to end.

Cycling routes in Thailand

While it may seem a challenge to cycle around the busy city of Bangkok, there are many cycling routes in Thailand that make it a great biking destination. Agoda lists over 60,000 properties in cities like Bangkok and Chiang Mai to islands like Krabi, Koh Samui and Phuket.

For families:

Tour the old city of Chiang Mai and visit ancient temples cycling through the charming alleys, or take the train up to the quieter and more laidback Lamphun. Stop for authentic Northern Thai food before pedaling along the picturesque country roads.

For cycling enthusiasts:
Expert riders can consider escaping city life for the beach by riding from Bangkok to Phuket, a popular 850km cycle route which follows the coast of Andaman Sea.
For nature lovers:

Take a day trip out of Bangkok away from the skyscrapers and vibrant city life to the serene island of Bang Krachao, located on the Chao Phraya River. Pedal along the Flower Road, which is named after the colorful painted flowers on the ground, and visit the Botanical Garden and Sri Nakhon Khuean Khan Park for real flora and fauna.
