Bike2Basics

Cycling the essence of Thailand

WHAT'S BIKE2BASICS?

The family of Vanguards founder Michael hails from Thailand's smallest province which boasts Thailand's most intricate canal system, the country's highest density of Thai Buddhist temples, vast coconut and fruit plantations as well as a range of ancient floating markets. BIKE2BASICS has been designed based on our video interview with Michael's 91 year old grandmother. The goal is to immerse in the province's stunning nature and to trace grandma's life back to when she was young. From the traditional way of life, local professions, food and culture. This journey supports local community based tourism initiatives and is as local as it gets. From meeting Michael's grandmother, home cooked lunch in farming communities to ancient riverside villages, organic fruit orchards, ancient Buddhist architecture and floating markets. Bike2Basics is a ride like no other that keeps the memory of the old generation alive and connects you to our cultural roots.
