The Green Lane around Suvarnabhumi Airport has proved to be very popular with cyclists who live in Bangkok. The 23 kilometer long lane was often crowded at the weekends with both hobby cyclists and those training for racing. It proved so popular that it is now time for them to upgrade the facilities. This includes a new lane for slower cyclists, restrooms and snack shops. The Green Lane is due to be closed for four months from June to September 2015.

    Are you sure about that? My gf said the Thai sign that is posted at the track says it is closing July 8th and re-opening in October. I was surprised because I had heard it was closing in June.

      There is no news yet. I think the main problem was not enough rolling stock.

        From well informed circles: express trains can’t run until ARL receives refinance, some stock is used to cannibalize for spare parts to make city line continue running, as no funds to purchase any spare parts

    Hope they don’t ruin. One bathroom at the beginning of the trail should be enough, IMO. Snack shop? Pleeaaase. The loop is only 23km.
