Don't ride your bicycle in Chiang Mai

Recommended Posts

Accident rate is very high in Chiang Mai but I still see a lot of ignorant tourists riding their bicycles slowly without a care in the world. Take public transport, it is much safer.

Gave up bicycles when I bought my first motorcycle.

Why anyone would ride one anywhere but a dedicated bike path is beyond me. 50kg falang, 10kg bicycle, 2 tonne car - not hard to guess the winner of this contest.

Awaiting the 'why can't I ride my bike if I choose' posts

It is good for the environment ... which dead people can not see or use

They're easy to pick in Chiang Mai;  they ride down the right side of the busy roads.  It gets a bit noisy with song taews and other motorists blasting their horns at them.

And you won't get any help when you have an accident. Some too scared by fake accident scammers to get "involved", others just don't care

I see a lot of obvious tourists using bicycles in Chiang Mai. They seem to think they have a cloak of invulnerability, and road rules don't apply to them.

IMHO they are dangerous because, unlike a scooter, they have no acceleration to get out of a developing situation.
