I already felt welcome when I arrived at the airport, where I’ve met Nils Laenger from Fixedpott. We were picked up by Bon, one of the organisers of Bangkok Criterium and went streight to the City. Driving on the left side of the road, makes me remembering about my time in South Africa and the cracy traffic there. Today I got a first impression on traffic without bikes. So many cars, tuk tuks, motorbikes, buses and trucks are driving here. Busy and hectic. However I still want to cycle in this City! Tomorrow will be the first opportunity on the welcome ride, which is organised by all the Thai riders.
