    The “Let’s go Green” slogan suffers a bit by the fact that the exhibition is at a venue that can only be reached by car… ROFL

      I agree there. That is why I thought it was strange when they talked about “bike parking”. I will have to drive there. Too far out of town.

    Should have held it at QSNCC, would have been a much more accessible location.

      Either that or BITEC as both have sky train access which allows you to take your bicycles for free. But the TAT, who are sponsors, seem to prefer Muang Thong Thani for some reason. All their main events are in the exhibition halls there.

    Man, I’m going to have to drink a lot of fresh-squeezed juice on the day I ride there!

      I’m driving, but I might cycle in from the parking lot 🙂

    Paul, maybe take a bike on the train to Laksi and cycle the rest? I live about 35 mins cycle away, tempted to go just to see how many motorcyclists use the bicycle lane 🙂

      Gordon, I’m coming from Khung Bang Kachao, so I don’t live close to any SRT lines. I would probably cross the river, get on the BTS at Udom Suk and ride it to the end, then cycle up. Meanwhile, drinking lots of juice…

        Always good to stay hydrated 🙂 I live near a sky train line, unfortunately it wont be open for a few years. Some form of train transport to Muang Thong Thani would make a lot of sense as we often see the traffic on Cheung Wattanna grind to a standstill when there is a event on at MTT.
