Spaces are still available - sign up today!
Happy August! It is the rainy season here in Thailand but we prefer to call it the “green season”. Why? Because thanks to the consistent rain between the months of June and November the Kingdom is at its lushest with dense rainforests and rows upon rows of rice paddies glistening in countless shades of green. We still have a number of great rides scheduled to take place during this year’s green season! One of our favorites is “Thailand Heritage by Bicycle” https://www.spiceroads.com/tours/thailand_heritage

Thank you to everyone who joined last Sunday’s ride in Bangkok to commemorate the late Mr. Chin’s life. Starting and ending at SpiceRoads HQ we cycled more than 50 km through the city, weaving through traffic and enjoying classic scenes of the charming old town. We were also visited by monks for a blessing ceremony followed by a Thai lunch. May Chin rest in peace - his legacy will no doubt live on. To everybody who has made a donation to help support Chin’s family, thank you very much.
It is with a heavy heart that we share news of Mr. Chin’s sudden passing on May 22, 2023. Chin was an invaluable member of the SpiceRoads family here in Thailand, always going above and beyond to ensure our guests were well looked after. He took great pride in his profession as a driver and, most of all, was a genuine and caring person. We are deeply saddened by Chin’s death and share with you some images to remember him by. May he rest in peace.
If you have had the pleasure of going on a ride with Chin over the years, you can make a donation to help support his family at this difficult time. You can do so at this link: https://www.spiceroads.com/pay or www.spiceroads.com/paythb Please write “Mr.Chin” under Booking Reference.
