Pro cycling champion Sean Kelly will lead a road bike tour operated by SpiceRoads Cycle Tours between Bangkok and Phuket, from 31 January 2013 to 7 February 2014.

 The cost of the Sean Kelly tour is US$2,750 and will be supported by air-conditioned vehicles, with water, sports drinks and snacks provided during the ride.

 Riders can bring their own bikes, or rent a Trek 2.1C from SpiceRoads for US$ 200.

On the tour, cyclists will ride 700 km in six cycling days. The group, which will be limited to 20 participants who have road riding experience, will ride along both the east and west coasts of Thailand and overnight at resorts along the way, with afternoons free to enjoy the beach or the pool.

The special road bike tour is designed for cyclists who want to push themselves hard each day, while having the opportunity to ride with a former professional cyclist.

Hailing from Ireland, Kelly was one of the most successful road cyclists of the 1980s and one of the finest classic riders of all time. From turning professional in 1977 until his retirement in 1994, he won nine monument classics and 193 professional races. Kelly started in the Tour de France 15 times and wore the maillot vert on four occasions, won Paris- Nice seven years in a row and the first UCI World Cup in 1989.
