Some people bike to keep fit. Some do it for fun. Some ride to commute between home and the workplace, while a few others spin their way to holiday destinations.
Bicycle touring is growing in popularity. Many cyclists, me included, have a touring bike in their collection, although not all of them actually use the bike to do long-distance, multi-day road trips. Preferring technical singletracks, I admit I've never done bicycle touring before, either. But a colleague of mine at the Bangkok Post does. And he's now a superstar among like-minded cyclists.
Sarayuth Seanaputh, aka Vud, works at the Bangkok Post's printing facility in Bang Na. He has been doing bicycle touring for quite a few years but it was his latest trip in western China that made him famous.
