    Thailand Bicycle Tour - Our Tour of Thailand was arranged by Richard Weiss and his wife, Pin. They made all of the hotel reservations, planned the route and arranged for sag support. Tour participants were Carol Feagles, Geoff Shannon, Kaman Tong, Dick Weiss, Barbara Wood and me. Our sag driver in a trusty Mitsubishi pickup truck was Mr Lab. Our cycling days generally started between 8 and 9 and ended in the late afternoon. Our lunches were eaten in roadside huts where food orders were made by Lab. Almost all of our breakfasts were eaten in our hotel restaurants. Dinner were eaten in local restaurants or in market stalls. We occassionally bought fruit (bananas, melons, strawberries, etc.) at cycling rest stops. Our non-riding days were spent sight-seeing or resting. The temperature in the mornings was in the low 70's and it rose in the afternoon to the mid-90's to the low 100's (usually on the steepest hills). It did not rain - we were there during the dry season.
