    I have lately been in the process of doing a lot of Mountain Biking, and Road Bike riding. Since it is quite hard to find these spots on an english language website, I will share what I have learned so far.

    Road Biking:
    I personally like to ride out by the new airport. There is a large shoulder, the pavement is new, and if you just want to stay on less traveled section of road you can. One loop can be made into 25K. I reccomend staying as far left to the shoulder as possible, and stay there. Motorbikes still pass at a fast speed, and are your biggest threat. Parking at the base of this control tower. 13°41'48.16"N 100°46'15.92"E

    The famous bike route in BKK seems to be on the South side of rama 9 closer to the airport, but I personally think it is a pain in the ass to get to, and it still seems like a busy road.

    KB Route. I have not been here yet, but plan to check it out soon. 13°48'47.22" N 100°40'35.61"E

    I have also been riding south of Chon Buri. Plenty of good roads with not many hazards down there. Parking 13°13'33.02"N 100°58'19.03"E

    Plenty of great roads to ride up around Kao Yai also. Stay at some resort, and go riding.

    I will just copy and paste a few of these websites, as they have pictures and descriptions.
