Renting Bicycles in Sukhothai
Having visited this beautiful ancient city of ruins three times, we took the opportunity on our last visit to rent pedal bikes and cycle Sukhothai with our friends.
Getting ready to ride with Ju & Stu
At just 20 baht per bicycle from the stand at the rear car park behind the historical park entrance, we were soon off on our way around the ruins on pedal power alone. It really is great way to cover the large distances between ruins with ease, and as a bonus the swift breeze from the fast movement is quite refreshing.
It’s one of the best ruin sites to explore in Thailand
There are not many shady places around Sukhothai Historical Park and it can get very hot exploring and photographing all the amazing statues and structures.

Also it’s great fun to get your friends together and power down the straights on a bike. I had forgotten what it felt like to play around on two wheels like when I was a child, popping wheelies, skidding around corners and racing each other like a bunch of kids once again.
Cycling Sukhothai with friends was pretty fun
Sukhothai Historical Park is one of our favourite heritage sites in Thailand and exploring by bicycle brought new life to the experience. We highly recommend it.
