Closer to Bangkok than you might think is the famous Bridge Over the River Kwai, part of World War II's Death Railway that linked Thailand and Burma. On this active four day ride, you'll board the train for a ride on the famous railway line, visit an ancient Khmer temple, visit the infamous Hellfire Pass and enjoy four days in the beautiful countryside of West Thailand. On ANZAC Day, April 25, you will participate in the dawn service commemorating the end of both World Wars.
Cycling on small back roads as well as many unsealed roads gives a great opportunity to explore the rural communities of Thailand while also visiting the famous WWII sites.
This is a special ANZAC Day departure to commemorate the end of World War I and II. We will join in honoring those who gave their lives in the service of their country and who suffered the hardships of the Japanese POW camps to build the Death Railway.
109 km riding. This tour is on a mix of sealed and unsealed roads so we ride mountain bikes with knobby tires. You need to be comfortable with some bumpy surfaces but anyone who is comfortable riding a bike should be ok. There are some small short hills to get up and roll down. The distances are all quite short so there is never any rush if you worry about being slow and we always have a support vehicle on hand in case you need to take a break from cycling.
