Don't ride your bicycle in Chiang Mai

Roads are designed and built for motor vehicles.

Ride a bicycle on them at your peril

 

The narrow roads around Chiang Mai moat were built (maybe 70 years ago) for motorbikes and bicyclists when few people can even afford small cars.

 

But nowadays, the volume of traffic with its huge cars has grown tremendously and accident rates have increased as a result.

 

I see a lot of tourists and retirees from Europe and Japan who still think that Chiang Mai is a 'rural' area and ignorant of the perils of riding a bicycle.

I do it for exercise. At this stage my weight and unhealthy lifestyle are probably a larger danger to me. Found a nice cycle spot out by the Convention centre and sporting complex. Decent fairly safe exercise can be performed there, although you do need to travel a bit on canal road to get there.
