Bangkok Connection

Sira, coordinator of the Bangkok Bicycle Map Project will be visiting us with his team of cyclists. below an extract of his email.

“I just finish my job “Vote Bike less car,more space”. now in Bangkok, it is term for election new governor and it is a big chance for setting Bicycle agenda for this city.

we collect ideas from cyclists and bike users by let’s they post ideas on vinyl board at bicycle festival and then share all ideas in Facebook (Bangkok Bicycle Campaign- BBC) facebook/BangkokBicycle

yesterday (26.01.13), we have a small bicycle campaign for give our bicycle ideas to candidates. We hope our action will make some better change in our city.

about Bangkok BiKe Map
Bangkok Bike Map is made for ...
not show Bike lane but ...

first we define how many area that bike users very need bike route in Bangkok. (and how big we can hold)

Bangkok is big city, only us can not survey all area. so we choose only centre area of Bangkok that have terrible traffic problem.

then we divide the choosen area to 32 zones depend on space of map paper. and PR for find volunteers from everyday-bike-user. (about 50 persons)

so our volunteers can understand the aim of project quickly because they bike everyday and they already known what is the best route in their own village.

however, we spend 2 years to make the Bangkok Bike Map. it’s so long time because we start from zero knowledge about “map maker”. We have to learn so much about how to collect data in a easy way but correct enough for making real scale map.

it is hard work but when it’s done. I feel so good.

if you want more information please feel free to ask me. I glad to join you to make a bigger connection and network.

Happy cycling to you and your team and well done!,too


Bangkok cycling activism is so strong, there’s so much to learn and share. Thank you Sira for your support so far.
