Cycle Tracks Pattaya/Jomtien


Recommended Posts

I live in Bangkok. My 8 year old son and I go cycling quite often in Bangers. I know of a few dedicated cycle tracks around the city now in parks and so on.. All about 5 km loops. We usually do between 15-20 km.

I have been trying to google anything similar in Pattaya /Jomtien for our next trip. Take the bikes and away we go for the weekend. But I'm not having any luck finding tracks.

Does anyone know of anything similar  in the areas I mentioned?

Cheers!

Mabprachan lake ought to do the trick.

 

Yes this is the best one for beginners /families. There is a much more difficult one near Silver lake, on 1003, lot's of up and downs, 16km

There is a great bike path out past Ko Chee Chan, called "The Kings Path" Its strictly for bikes and is about 17km in length with alot of ups and downs, but quite a nice and beautiful ride.

Yes, the lake is pretty much your best bet  because of your kid, depending on your starting point, all the way around should net you 20 KM, with a short grade on one side (Nongrue)

Just to add something to the Lads Saddle position.

He should be able to touch the Ground when sitting on the Saddle .

BUT, only with one Leg down and with his Toes only, and the Bike jut leaning slightly into the Down Leg..

This will be his most comfortable position.

If you are a little more adventurous, there are Mountain Bike Trails at Khao Mia Kaeo which is only about 6 Km further East along 4240 Route from Mabpruchan ( Pong ) at the Khao Mia Kaeo Reservation Park.

Wherever you choose to go , be safe.

You forgot 1 thing the bottom bracket on a Mountain bike is 2 inches or around 5 cm higher positioned (for adult bikes) than on a regular old lady bike. He has to sit perfect when he cycles not while standing still. 🙂 So the technique I explained is for a mountain bike style set-up. The one you talk about is for a regular bike set up yes it is more comfortable but not correct.

When all is said and done, the lad is just learning to enjoy cycling with his Father.

We can assist him, but he will find his own style as he advances and becomes more competent.

Its just good that he is enjoying himself on a Bike, and long may it continue.

Correct

Thanks for all the replies. Regarding the seat height, I think it's too low but he wants it there. He  can only just tip-toe the floor at the moment and wants to feel the floor. ( His words) lol!

Cheers! We are having a great time together!
