TOP CYCLING ROUTES IN PHUKET BY THANYAPURA
SUNDAY BAKERY RIDE
Common Sunday bunch ride leaving early from Thanyapura over the Sarasin bridge, along the coast and up to the bakery for a coffee and some their legendary baked goods. The Pro’s and faster riders tend to go on and do the Bannana Loop and back home while everyone else goes back home the way they came.
Sunday rides are free for anyone to join in and there’s normally 2-3 coaches and can easily be 50-100 people of these rides of all ability levels.
Beautiful roads, great scenery and a nice break at the half way point. Awesome way to spend a Sunday morning.
BANANA BAKERY LOOP – BIG RIDE
Head out from Thanyapura up the coast and over the Sarasin bridge leaving Phuket and onto the mainland where you’ll head towards the Bakery that’s run by the local Orphanage, have a coffee and some of their legendary banana cake then get on with the rest of the ride with the big boys.
