Hua Hin Bike Tours is owned and operated by The Tour de Asia Bicycle Touring Company (a licensed Tourism Authority of Thailand Company) was started in April of 2004 for the main purpose of organizing and operating charity bicycle events in Thailand and Southeast Asia. The Founder and Managing Director, Mr. Christopher Byrd, came up with the idea for the 1st Annual Tour de Thailand on August 4th, 2003 and he completed a 3,200 KM solo bicycle journey covering Thailand from Hat Yai to Chiang Rai that started on November 22nd and finished on December 20th of 2003.
In 2008, the Tour de Asia Bicycle Touring Co., Ltd. completed its 1st Annual Tour de Isan Charity Bicycle Ride from Nong Khai to Ubon Ratchathani with great success for the charities, the riders, and everyone involved. Tour de Asia then relocated to the Hua Hin area and assumed the Sea Hill Mountain Biking business (now Hua Hin Bike Tours) when their friend and founder Paul Mason returned to the UK for business. Chris is now able to offer bicycle day tours, multi-day tours, custom tours, bicycle rentals, and sells quality Tour de Thailand bicycle jerseys to support his annual charity rides.
It is because of our ongoing efforts to get support from Corporate Sponsors who will benefit from our Marketing and Corporate Social Responsibility programs that we can operate reasonably inexpensive rides and still have 100% of the donations go directly to the charities. Without the generosity of these sponsors the events we organize would not be possible, so we make every effort to give them credit for sharing our vision and dream. Our events are not races, but everyone involved wins!
