Two-wheeling in Phuket, be it for an inexpensive way to get around, for sport or recreation, is becoming increasingly popular. For the avid cyclist The Bicycle Shop, located on the Chao Fa East Road at the entrance to Chalong Parkview (700m up from Chalong Circle), is Phuket’s newest bicycle outlet. The shop has a wide selection of bicycles for sale for the serious cyclist, the hobbyist and bikes for children. The shop offers a repair service and sells bicycle parts, helmets and other accessories.

Various companies offer cycling tours around Phuket from half day guided tours to full cycling holidays. The cycling trips take in some of Phuket’s most spectacular views and include visits to the Gibbon Rehabilitation Centre and small local traditional Thai villages.

  • Bike Tours Thailand offer a variety of trips with a back-up vehicle and English speaking guides.
  • Amazing Bike Tours organise off road cycling through rubber tree plantations and local dirt tracks.
