New biking trail opens in Chet Khot park

Biking Trail Chet Khot ThailandLet's start with some good news from Chet Khot-Pong Kon Sao Nature Study and Eco-tourism Centre in Saraburi Province, Thailand. Yes, that "Chet Khot Forest Park" as most people call it.

From now on, cross-country mountainbikers camping at Chet Khot no longer have to venture outside its boundary - a new biking trail has been created through the reforested area around the park's reservoir.

The loop is less than two kilometres long but, of course, you're free to do as many rounds as you wish.

Literally, that means you can bike for 40 kilometres straight or more without having to worry whether you're going to make it on the way back.

In other words, no matter how many hours you've been riding, your tent (or bungalow, in case you manage to book one) is always just a few minutes away. And that's great for both newbies and training racers.

By the way, Chet Khot also has a well-maintained downhill trail for bikers seeking the thrill of gravity. And this weekend there'll be a big gathering of downhillers at the park.

If you need more information, call the centre at 09-237-8659 or 036-227-156.
