One of the longest running and most awaited events of the year, Phuket Bike Week, has been announced for 2015. This is the 21st Bike Week in Phuket, which over the years has become an institution. Earlier this week, a press conference was held at Patong Municipality to announce this year’s festival of everything oily.
Witthaya Singkara, the Phuket Bike Week organizer, speaking at the press conference, said “There will be a total of 500 international bike clubs joining the 2015 Phuket Bike Week, 300 of which will be Thai clubs. To mark the start of the event, from 4.30pm until 6pm on April 11, the Phuket Bike parade will drive around Patong city.”
“Throughout the event, there will be live music concerts at Loma Park, and other activities. I believe this event will be of interest to tourists and bike riders from around the world.”
Every year, Bike Week coincides with the Thai New Year Songkran festivities, which makes Phuket the place to be during the beginning of April. The fun will start at Loma Park, Patong Beach, from the 11th to 13th of April, before moving on to Sapan Hin Park and Phuket Town from the 17th to the 19th.
