|BICYCLING IN AYUTTHAYA
|Historic City of Ayutthaya.
Ayutthaya City and its surroundings (Mueang District) are administratively split up in different areas.
On this website you will find different tested bicycle tracks described for each of these zones. Additional information and photographs on Points of
Interest, Reference Points and the History of Ayutthaya (including down-loadable PDF-files on subject) can be also found on this website.
Tips and Warnings
Bicycles can be rented in different locations on Soi 2 Naresuan Rd, which is the starting point of these tours. Bike rental costs 40 Baht (about $1.2/)
per day on average, which makes bike touring an inexpensive way to see the city. Ayutthaya's terrain is mostly flat and easy to ride, but many streets
and side roads are poorly marked, so use the map to simplify navigation.
Be cautious as traffic in and around Ayutthaya is sometimes dense and chaotic. Motor vehicles often fail to see cyclists and pedestrians, so you must
closely watch out for them. Motorcycles are a particular cause of local accidents. Dogs and potholes can also be dangerous, especially in remote
areas. Weather can be very hot, so make sure to drink plenty of fluids and wear sun block. It is inadvisable to drive at night due to the lack of
lighting. Remember one thing when biking: BE VISIBLE!
The theft of bicycles is uncommon in Ayutthaya, but backpacks and cameras have been stolen on rare occasions. It is best to pack valuables with
you when visiting the temples on route.

About tracks, track Info and maps
We provide TWO possibilities to print bicycle track info.
First possibility is via the Download | Print button in the map window of the page. You have the choice of downloading a single page map or
detailed multiple page maps. The latter includes driving instructions, information on the Points of Interest and a small photograph. The print out is
based on a standard print frame set up by RouteYou.com.
Second possibility is to download our PDF-file with a map, driving instructions and information on the Points of Interest from the site.
The choice is yours. It is all free to download - no charges at all.
2. Digital download
RouteYou.com provides the possibility to download data on GPS or iPhone.
The method to download a route on your GPS depends on your GPS device (Garmin, TomTom, etc). Data can also be provided in GPX-format.
We have although one major problem. The zone of Ayutthaya is not yet digitalized and available in the online data bank of RouteYou, which means
that we have to use many waypoints to set up our tracks. Some GPS devices as TomTom are limited in the number of way points the equipment can
download and master.
RouteYou uses Geolives from Apple as preferred application for iPhone.
More specific info can be found on the site of RouteYou.
