Back in November, I was told about a ride out to the ocean that promised to be pretty cool, and that involved (like whoa) a bike lane. On Sunday, I finally got around to it-and it was great, but sooo much more than I bargained or prepared for. It ended up being about 50km each way, and 8 hours total between riding and breaks along the way. I would love to figure out a way to do something similar but avoid Rama II road (horrible) so I will explore other seashore ride options in the future. Bangkhuntien Road is a pretty popular route for cyclists, though-I can see why; it is long, mostly quiet, and has a bike lane. If you live around here, this is a great exercise spot. If you live where I live, this is an Expedition. But worthwhile.
