From bikes to mics: Musicians lead pedal for environmental awareness

Two indie music acts, Mild and Sqweez Animal, are ready to lead 100 Thai cyclists on a bicycle route to explore six major venues in Bangkok this Sunday afternoon before throwing them a free concert in the evening.
The event is part of the "Pedal Around Thailand: Cycling Together, Hearts Together" campaign organised by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) to encourage Thais and tourists to help reduce their carbon footprint by opting to travel by bike.
As the campaign's ambassadors, the sextet Mild and the duo Sqweez Animal will lead a caravan of 100 cyclists on a route titled "Chill Out Bangkok Sightseeing" to visit Wat Amarintraram, Siriraj Hospital, the naval dockyard, Wat Arun Ratchawararam (or the Temple of Dawn), Santa Cruz church and Museum Siam.
Those interested are invited to bring their own bikes and join the journey, which will start at Museum Siam on Sanam Chai Road on Sunday at 2pm. All cyclists are expected to get back to the museum late in the afternoon, where the concert will start at 5pm.
The two acts will perform chart-topping and specially selected songs, and non-cycling fans are also invited. The evening will also feature activities including game booths with prizes worth 250,000 baht.
