Airport bicycle park

I love to ride a bicycle but not on the city streets of Bangkok. Now there is a place that I might try.

Yesterday, Suvarnabhumi Cycling Park’s new 23.5-kilometre bike lane was officially opened to the public.

You can stop and chat with friends without worrying about cars, trucks and motorcycles.

It was built  by Airports of Thailand (AoT) Plc in cooperation with a local bike club.

The bike lane runs along the airport's long dyke built to prevent floods.

If you love airplanes, this park is for you.

This nice YouTube video will show you what its like.
