“Virgin Trails” – Some So Virgin They Will Be Found On Sunday Morning

Please join us for a classic trail on mostly dirt in a pleasant green area. This is 40km from Asoke, so allow a little extra time to get there.

Restaurant:
ร้านอาหาร พี่หนอม เล็ก
A hole-in-the-wall dilapidated fishing pond “restaurant”
Si Prasan Alley, Tambon Bang Yai, Amphoe Bang Yai, Chang Wat Nonthaburi 11140
ซอย ศรีประสาน ตำบล บางใหญ่ อำเภอบางใหญ่ นนทบุรี 11140


Misdirections:
Best is to put the Google Maps link in and follow the directions:

https://goo.gl/maps/kudJhWE1wPFkRj68A

However, for Bushman’s benefit you could also follow the old school directions below.


From Downtown

Find your way to the new Si Rat Outer Ring Rd Expressway that starts around Chatujak Park and is harldy ever used. After going through the Tollbooth, in about 4km you will cross the Chaopraya River, continue for another about 13 km until the freeway comes to an end. Stay in the right lane and follow the signs for Bang Bua Thong which takes you in a semi-circle up around and over the freeway.


Head north on the Bangkok Western Outer Ring Road for 4km and turn left onto a relatively obscure #1001 Thanon Bang Muang – Bang Kulad.



Head west for around 2.8km until you pass over a major canal, continue straight for another 2km and then turn right onto another obscure road (as seen below yet caution you won’t see the green arrow). This is #5035 Bang Khu Lat – Wat Phra Ngoen Road.



After 500 meters and passing a big ass yellow mansion on your left (used for shooting movies), turn left onto the tiny lane (soi 12) which is called Si Prasan Alley on Google Maps. Follow this winding road for another approximately 1km to the run start next to a big fish pond. Good luck.

The hash will start from an empty lot in a Soi off road 2001/Wat Sriwaree Noi Road (see the satellite image below).

If driving from Bang Na Trad it will be on your left hand side. Turn left into the Soi, past a large pile of sand/gravel and a water tower, and you will see a large, dusty empty lot on your left (the road continues straight towards a pond).

Nearest landmark is the Bang Pu Inn hotel - the run site is in the next Soi on your left. Alternatively, drive down the Bang Pu Inn Soi, turn right before the hotel, then turn left to the empty lot.

There is parking in the empty lot or in any of the sois nearby, including the Bang Pu Inn soi.

Public transport: take the Airport Rail Link to Suvarnabhumi and then a 'short distance taxi' from the ground floor taxi rank to the run site off Wat Sriwaree Noi Road.

The post-hash dinner will be in a restaurant across the road from the run site, directly on road 2001 (right hand side if coming from Bang Na Trad). This restaurant has limited parking. See photo of restaurant sign.

Bruised Willy will not disappoint.  It has been too long since we've been treated to one of his classics.  This will be a great run and likely mostly virgin terrain on dirt trails, miss it at your own peril.

Van Transport from Lumpini

There will be a van arranged leaving promptly from the Lumpini Park Statue at 3pm share.  This will be heavily subsidized if not paid for but you need to let Roger Me know via email at:  kmeyertw@gmail.com or by phone :  0847-035-900 by latest Wednesday night if you would like to reserve a seat on the party van.  

Again RSVP by latest Wednesday night if you'd like a seat in the van.



DRIVING DIRECTIONS:

Traffic is often heavy on weekends on Borom and there's construction on Sala Thammasop Road, which is the usual shortcut, so leave a little extra time and I would recommend against Sala Thammasop Road as a back way on the weekend (unless they finally finished construction this week or next - ask Jeff Gay about that).

1) Zero your odometer and click the Google Maps Link.
2) When the restaurant loads on the Google Maps Link look for the Directions button, which is in blue below:
3) Click "Directions" on the Google Maps Link and select your form of transport.
4) Do what it says. 




ALTERNATE DRIVING DIRECTIONS:

1) Download Waze for your phone.
2) Click the Waze Directions Link.
3) Click go and do what it says.
