CHIANG RAI – People across Thailand have already begun rehearsing for the ‘BIKE FOR DAD’ event, which will kick off on December 11.
In Chiang Rai province, two rehearsals were held over the weekend. One practice session covered the full-length bike route, while the other took place over a shorter, 9.9-kilometer distance.
In Lamphun province, Governor Narong Onsaard led a group of registered cyclists on a 29-kilometer bike route during their first rehearsal. The bike route took participants past 19 temples before arriving at the finish line. Another rehearsal will be held on Sunday in the afternoon.
Meanwhile in Nonthaburi province, more than 400 cyclists, including Governor Nisit Chansomwong, took part in the province’s own rehearsal for BIKE FOR DAD. The practice session was held as a safety drill for security officers and to make sure the roads are in good condition. Nonthaburi is scheduled to carry out another rehearsal on December 6, a day after His Majesty the King’s 88th birthday anniversary.
