Ranong to Koh Song : "Peddling your bikes, visiting two countries."

Ranong to hold bike trip to Myanmar
Saturday, 11 January 2014

RANONG, 10 January 2014 Thailand's Andaman coastal province has joined hands with the Tourism Authority of Thailand organizing a bicycle trip to Myanmar.

Ranong's governor Cherdsak Champates said on Friday that the bicycle trip from the adjacent province of Chumphon via Ranong to Koh Song province in Myanmar would be held between January 25 and 26, under the theme of "Peddling your bikes, visiting two countries."

The event is the first of its kind with an aim to promote tourism between Thailand and Myanmar, which share more than 2000 kilometers border line. According to Cherdsak, travelers joining the trip would gain quite an experience cycling both in Thailand and Myanmar; on the newly open route, which he believed would be popular in the near future.

It is part of the Thai tourism sector to open up new opportunities to attract more foreigners to Thailand as well as to cooperate with Myanmar, which many people widely believe will be a new travel destination with high potential to attract large numbers of tourists.

^ can't find any info, whether it be peddling, pedaling or pedalling bicycles

There was a similar style event last September Thai-Cambodia - a 'friendship ride' where Thai riders went by bus to Pong Nam Ron in Chanthaburi province and rode from there to the border (Ban Laem often used for border runs) and met with Cambodian riders who'd pedaled their way from Battambang, lunch, officials, speeches . . . to promote that route. Highway 317 that runs from Sa Kaeo province to C'buri province is quite unsuitable for cyclists and far safer to bus to PNR and ride from there.

Has anyone told the authorities in Kawthaung about this plan??

Travel overland more than 5km from the Kawthaung waterfront is still not allowed

Will the bikes be taken over by longtail? Or are these waterbikes?

There's a similar ten day one between Vietnam and Pnom Phen, a mate of mine was talking about it. If you raise a certain amount for charity the trip's free. I was thinking of doing it. Anyone had any similar experiences ?

Cheers
