  • BKRBT: Bang Kaeo River Bicycle Track
  • General data:
    • We started off at Tony's Place at 0830 Hr with as objective the water regulator on the Bang Kaeo Canal in Ban It. We biked to Ban Nonsi via the Pho Sam Ton Fields and followed the right bank of Khlong Bang Phaeng, an old stretch of the defunct Bang Kaeo River. We took a first break at Wat Tanot. We continued our trip and stopped at Wat Mai Pak Bang to visit the massive 49 m long reclining Buddha. After 2 Hrs and a half we reached the Bang Kaeo Water Regulator. After a short stop we continued along the left bank of the Bang Kaeo Canal, Khlong Bang Chaeng and Khlong Bang Phaeng. After another fuel stop and a classic track from Ban Mai to Ayutthaya over the Phukhao Thong Fields we arrived back in Ayutthaya shortly after 1400 Hr at M&M Guest House. It was a very hot bike ride and we were pushed close to our limits.
