Phuket is known by tourists, both Thai and foreign, for its natural surroundings. There are growing numbers of tourists visiting Phuket who are interested learning about and conserving Phuket’s natural environment, and solving global warming. Biking Tourism is quickly growing as a favourite choice for allowing tourists to get closer to nature and better admire and learn about the attractions. Travelling by bike can include members of the family, be they young or old, and it also helps reduce global warming.
Therefore, Track Zone Tourist Bike Club, Phuket City Municipality and a number of Phuket bike clubs have joined hands to organise an activity for tourist cycling, helping to promote and encourage both Thai and foreigner tourists to travel to Phuket by bike, as well as to educate people to recognise the benefits of exercise and taking care of one’s health.
The objectives of the event:
1. To spread information about exercising by bike and to campaign biking as a way to reduce global warming.
2. To promote athletic tourism.
3. Encourage the public to bike as a way of bettering their health.
4. To encourage youngsters to make the best of their free time, away from drugs.
