By bike to Ta Kwai...I made it into a 90km round trip, and got some unaccustomed practice at riding quite steep hills [up to 14%] in the Donrak Ranges near the border...puff puff...
Yesterday I competed in a 90km bicycle race, the route of which included another visit to this wonderful place...it was a quite difficult race, but I was pleased to get 2nd place in the 40+ category, and won a trophy for coming in 10th overall, out of 300+ participants. I was the oldest competitor, and the only foreigner, so countless people pressed me into joining their "teams" for group photos. No scones with jam&cream, but there was plenty of free Thai food served at the finish.
