SpiceRoads Seeking Cyclists to Join Thailand's Tour of Friendship Road Race

SpiceRoads is seeking cyclists to join its team and race in Thailand's Tour of Friendship road race from 29 April to 4 May 2016.

The race is a perfect introduction to road bike racing for a novice as it is all about the love of cycling and connecting cyclists from all over the world.

"The organization and race control is perfectly balanced to enable the racer or novice to feel safe. It is also offers the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life from around the world. Being part of the SpiceRoads team allows you to concentrate on the racing as everything else, including daily bike maintenance gets done for you. I will be back next year as I have an age group title to defend," said Tinsley James (TJ) who has raced the Tour of Friendship with SpiceRoads for two consecutive years.

The race is in five-stages and starts in the colourful city of Bangkok and ends in the more remote Kanchanaburi area where the majority of the racing takes place.

The ride passes by Erawan National Park, famed for its impressive seven-tiered waterfall, Srinakarin Dam named after the Princess Mother with its impressive hydro-electric power plant and the infamous Bridge over the River Kwai at Kanchanaburi.
