25 Bangkok Streets To Close As 80,000 Ride In Royal Cycling Event

Unless you’re on a bicycle, you probably want to stay in on Sunday as Bangkok closes 25 major streets for the royally sponsored Ai Un Rak Bike Event.

About 80,000 people registered to ride on 10 different tracks across Bangkok. Among the roads closed will be Ratchadamnoen Klang, Ratchadamnoen Nok and Ratchadamnoen Nai avenues, Charoen Krung Road and Suk Sawat Road.

Both the BTS and MRT also will be jammed with bicycles, as riders are being encouraged to bring their two-wheelers on the Skytrain and subway to get to race sites.

For those brave enough to drive to an event, there will be 76 parking lots at the nine registration sits that can hold 20,760 vehicles.
The Bangkok Mass Transit Authority will provide free bus services on 15 routes from 7 a.m.-9 p.m. to ferry participants to and from events.

A free ferry service also will be available from the Tha Chang and Wang Lang piers from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Six special trains will be operated to help transport cyclists from the provinces to the event.

Modeled after 2015’s “Bike for Dad” event for HM the late King Rama IX, the “Bike Warm Love” ride also will be led in Bangkok by HM King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun.

The nationwide event is aimed at inspiring love and unity among all Thais. More than 200,000 people in 76 provinces registered for the event with 80,000 coming from Bangkok.
