HM King Bhumibol’s birthday was Dec 5, a day celebrated throughout his reign as Father’s Day in Thailand as His Majesty was revered as the “Father of the Nation”.

Rawai Mayor Aroon Solos announced the event at the Phuket Governor Meets the Press conference yesterday (Nov 7).

“The main purpose of the event is for people to remember His Majesty The King,” Mayor Aroon said.

Phuket Governor Chockchai Dejamornthan voiced his support for the event, adding, “Being healthier and promoting tourism attractions in Phuket are extra bonuses of holding this event.”

Registration at Nai Harn Lake will open at 5am, with cyclists pedalling off at 6am, Mayor Aroon explained.

The route will take the cyclists past Chalong circle and onto Chao Fa East Rd, where they will continue past Wichit Municipality then turn right at Dowroong School, continue across Thepsrisin Bridge, past Phuket Vocational College and stop at Saphan Hin, he added.

On the return, instead of heading back to Nai Harn Lake, cyclists will continue along the Rawai beachfront then continue to Laem Phromthep, where they are to arrive at 8am.

“At 9am, participants will gather together to form His Majesty’s official symbol to honour him,” Mayor Aroon said.

“Afterwards, all participants will be free to gather together at Nai Harn Lake, where food will be available and activities for families to enjoy,” he added.
