Ride to Remember in Thailand

#ANZAC Day is held in #Thailand on 25 April every year. The day of remembrance honors fallen Australian and New Zealand Armed Forces POWs who served and lost their lives in Thailand. A dawn ceremony is held at Hellfire Pass, where many POWs succumbed during the construction of the Death Railway, followed by a ceremony at the POW cemetery in the city of Kanchanaburi.

SpiceRoads Cycle Tours is excited to announce a new once-a-year tour "ANZAC Ride to Remembrance" in Kanchanaburi, Thailand which takes riders through the history and beautifully varied scenery of Kanchanaburi Province.

A moderate tour with a total of 118 kms within 3 days and one half day of cycling is a mixture of wide, hard-packed dirt trails, single track and smooth tarmac - c
ycling off the beaten trail through jungle, teak plantations and farming villages . Aimed at the reasonably fit rider, however, the air-conditioned support van is always close at hand.

Some highlights of the trip include visiting the famed WWII sites such as Bridge Over The River Kwai and the infamous Thai-Burma Railway, also known as the Death Railway.  Participating in the ANZAC ceremonies: the dawn ceremony at Hellfire Pass and the wreath laying ceremony at Don Rak War Cemetery and visiting Lawa Cave to see stalactites and stalagmites in many unique formations.
