This group lists a number of bicycle tracks, which gives the visitor-biker the opportunity to explore the most important ruins, temples and historical sites of the Historic City of Ayutthaya.
Ayutthaya City and its surroundings (Muang District) are administratively split up in different areas.
- On the City Island we have the Ayutthaya Historical Park area (a UNESCO World Heritage site) and the area outside the Ayutthaya Historical Park (sub-districts of Pratu Chai, Tha Wasukri and Ho Ratanachai)
- Off the City Island, we have four areas located in the cardinal directions: an area outside the City Island on the West (sub-districts of Ban Pom and Pak Kran); an area outside the City Island on the North (subdistricts of Suan Phrik, Khlong Sra Bua, Lumphli, Phukhao Thong, Wat Tum and Ban Mai); an area outside the City Island on the South, with Takhian canal as a boundary (Khlong Takhian and Samphoa Lom sub-district); We thought it convenient for the visitor-biker to split up the Eastern area (the ancient city of Ayodhya, pre-dating Ayuthaya itself) in two zones - North-East and South-East; zones divided by the main road leading from the city towards the Asian Highway (sub-districts of Ban Ko, Hantra, Hua Ro, Phailing, Kamang, Khlong Suan Phlu and Ko Rian).
On this website you will find different tested bicycle tracks described for each of these zones. Additional information on the Points of Interest, Reference Points and the History of Ayutthaya (including downloadable PDF-files on subject) can be found on the website of Ayutthaya Historical Research [AHR] web address: http://www.ayutthaya-history.com.
