We met Kim at 8am in the morning In Phatanakarn area. After a short introduction to the bikes and the day ahead we started the ride.
I have been doing bike rides in Bangkok at Klongs and around the city for quite some time but this route was new to me.
We rode mostly along quiet areas with little to no traffic and the ride is fairly easy to manage.
The best part for me is to ride along the Klong, see the locals live, sell food, relax, drink, bath in the Klong or trying to catch fish. Halfway we arrived at the Suan Luang (Rama IX) park for lunch. We went to a local market to buy chicken with rice, fresh fruit juice or whatever we fancied. We rested at a quiet place in the park, enjoyed our food and took a short break.
Then we headed back to Bangkok downtown.
All in all it took us 5 hours to absolve around 37km. The tour was relaxed, interesting and something different to do on a weekend in Bangkok. Keep it up Kim. I want to do it again soon.

Cow "farms", lakes, woods, rivers... it must take for ever to get there from down town Bangkok!!!! Well, not really. It turned out we found it all in the middle of Bangkok... surprisingly just around the corner from our neighborhood. Get ready for an enjoyable wiiiiiiiiiiii day on your bike. Nothing exhausting, just ride through the real Bangkok as it used to be not that long ago.

Kim was a terrific host and what made the experience even better is the certainty that your money is going to support a great cause.

Ah!!! Some khlong stretches have no railing at all (no more than 100 meters) and can be psychologically taxing when you are carrying a 1.5-year-old on your bike... easy solution: just walk.

Recommend every one to do this bicycle trip! You get to see beautiful temples and villages along the rivers. We rode through this amazing park with 7 different gardens with inspirations from different countries. We also drove round the water reservation that the King of Thailand have had built. We finished of with an excellent picnic in a park with a very good bike leader.

Our guides Kim and his son Robin leaded us for the non touristic Bangkok, which included some canals, buddhist temples and parks. It is really shocking how local people lives besides the canals. Kim is an excelent guide and after 15 years living in Bangkok he knows the local traditions and maners. However, most important is that Kim devotes his free time (weekends) to collect money for the orphans HIV infected of BaanGerda. Congratulations to Kim for his excelent initiative.

It took our group about six hours to complete the 37km route that mixed city roads, residential streets, country gravel trails, and elevated pathways over the klong. It made for a sweaty, but excellent, experience. Highlights include releasing frogs for blessings at a temple famous for its resident ghost, feeding rescued cows, riding along the serenity of the klong, being able to pick up some speed on your bike without fear of traffic, and saying hello to all of the friendly locals. There are some sections of the klong pathway without a railing but it makes for a great thrill!

Living in the centre of Bangkok as I do, you often forget how close and quiet other parts of the city can be; this tour is one fantastic way to be reminded of its diversity.

The fee is just a donation to Baan Gerda (http://www.baangerda.org/) through Kim and his energetic son as they lead you around this special part of Bangkok, just because they want to.

I was lucky to join Kim on this tour even before it had been fully launched to the public. He has spent countless hours working on a route that takes his guests through the real Bangkok and provides insights and experiences that the average tourist to Bangkok would miss. The variety of urban environments and riding conditions makes the 30+ kilometres tick by in no time, doable by anyone who has a reasonable level of fitness and intermediate level of cycling ability. The fascinating, behind the scenes look at daily lives is what I call a real travel experience. Kim is very knowledgeable about Bangkok and Thai culture and his language skills allow him to find out information about what is going on as the events arise. An excellent way to spend a weekend morning and the fact that the profits go to a worthwhile charity just adds to the positivity of this experience. Get on a bike and discover Bangkok!

I loved the surreal magic realism of getting exposure to a country's local nooks and crannies. It is a bonus that it helps such a great cause. Whether it be visiting temples and learning of local legends, getting lost in the grime and yet beauty of the khlong and the homes and people along this vein of such a vibrant city like Bangkok, the tour was amazing. I loved it and Kim is knowledgeable having lived in Thailand so long. The local delicacies at the market were delicious and it is a memory that I will keep forever. I just moved to Bangkok and was so happy that I did this tour!

A great 35k bike mile trek through some really beautiful, local areas in Bangkok that NO big touristy company could take you on. If you prefer local over touristy and commercial, this will be your thing. We saw some really interesting temples, and a beautiful park, and also areas by rivers. Host is very friendly, engaging, warm, and speaks Thai - and has a knack for knowing when people need to replenish, recharge, and get more electrolytes! All in all a wonderful first experience in learning about Bangkok. AND: The best thing is this trip's proceeds go to helping vulnerable children with HIV. An eco-friendly learning experience, fitness run, and charity cause all in one. Great!

What an excellent experience e had on this unique bike tour. We are regular visitors to Bangkok and this gave us an opportunity to explore parts of the city that we would have otherwise never experienced. Informative, fun and interesting this tour was everything we had hoped for and more! Will be back again.

I really enjoyed seeing behind the normal tourist’s spots in Bangkok. The trip felt safe even some if a lot of riding is on the small roads on the side of the canals. On the 35 km trip we learn about the history of eastern Bangkok and try the local food. The trip is quite long but with normal fitness and a good spirit it’s no problem.
