Looking for a fun outdoor activity to do in Bangkok? Let’s go cycling! This urban city offers various places for cyclists of all levels where you can cycle safely and have fun at the same time!
Check out these 4 recommended cycling parks: Happy and Healthy Bike Lane, Peppermint Bike Park, Wareephirom Park, and Benjakitti Park.
Happy and Healthy Bike Lane (HHBL)
With well-maintained facilities and great safety, HHBL gains huge attraction from all ages. As it is located nearby Suvarnabhumi airport, you may also spot planes flying over during your ride!
The highlight here is the main 23.5-kilometer cycling track around Suvarnabhumi airport, which consists of a blue track and a purple track. While both are two-lane and one-way tracks, the purple track is for fast riders, and the blue track is more for leisure cyclists. There are rest areas and toilets every 5 kilometers.
However, don’t worry if you are not ready for the full loop yet, as there is a 1.5-kilometer cycling and jogging track available too.
For families with kids, take them to the Kids Bike Park, which has a thrilling BMX-style pump track. Moreover, the newly-opened balanced Bike Park provides a safe environment for your children to learn how to ride a bicycle with free-to-use bikes.

To access the 23.5 km track, you will need the SNAP band embedded with GPS technology for safety purposes. So, if you come here for the first time, don’t forget to bring your passport for registration. There is also a bike rental service at HHBL.
Opening Hours: Daily, 6 AM – 7.30 PM
Peppermint Bike Park
Located in the Kaset-Nawamin neighborhood, Peppermint Bike Park is perfect for urban cyclists. This family-friendly park has two bike paths: the Fun Track and the Adventure Track.
The blue Fun Track is suited for beginners and recreational riders who want to enjoy the breeze and fresh air amidst the luscious greens. On the other hand, the Adventure Track or the mountain bike trail is for advanced cyclists or simply adrenaline seekers as it offers a full range of obstacles such as butterfly wall ride, rocky way, waves wall, and horseshoe turn.

While the Fun Track is only one kilometer in length, you may switch between the two cycling paths for a varied riding experience.
Another special feature about Peppermint Bike Park is that you can cycle here at night. Their tracks are well lit to ensure the safety of the cyclists.
There are also helmet and bike rental services with different types of bicycles for you to select. The entry fee costs 200 THB per 2-hr session.
Opening Hours: Sat – Sun & Public Holidays, 7 AM – 8 PM (During Covid-19 Situation)
Away from the city bustle, Wareephirom Park is located on the eastern side of the capital. This tranquil park is a perfect place for outdoor activities such as jogging, picnicking, and cycling.
There is a 4.2-kilometer cycling path where cyclists can cruise along the river while enjoying the cool breeze and scenic views.
Along the trail, you will see the giant suspension bridge, a popular landmark and photo spot. If you are lucky, you may also even spot buffalos, ducks, and white swans as you cycle.
We recommend you to visit in the early morning or evening to avoid heat. If the sky is clear, you will be able to catch a beautiful sunset as well. However, don’t stay there too late as there can be quite many mosquitos after sundown.
The bike rental service here costs only 30 THB per hour.
Opening Hours: Daily, 5 AM – 9 PM
Located near the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center, Benjakitti Park is another dazzling green spot in the heart of Bangkok city.
Popular with joggers and cyclists, its oval loop is roughly 2 kilometers in length. As you cycle around the park, don’t forget to appreciate both the greenery and the city view. You may want to snap some photos of the city skyline while making your way around the park.
This place will usually get more crowded after 5 PM as people working nearby often come here for exercises. So, you may want to visit the park earlier if you prefer fewer crowds.
Here, you can also rent a bike for 40 THB per hour. If you look for more activities after cycling, you can check out the fitness corners or rent the pedal boat for 30 THB per half an hour.
Opening Hours: Daily, 5 AM – 9 PM
