Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the two adjacent eastern provinces of Rayong and Chon Buri have more purpose-built mountain bike tracks than any other part of the country. And just a couple of weeks ago Rayong introduced another one.
The brand new bike trail is called "Fly Navy" because it is located within the naval air base on the west side of U-tapao airport. Yes, it's a military area. But thanks to mountain biking and tourism, it is accessible to riders from outside as well. All you have to do to enter the airbase is leave your ID card with the officers at the entrance and they will give you two passes, one for yourself and the other, a larger one, for your car. I checked if foreign bikers are allowed in too and the answer was yes, on the condition that they are accompanied by a Thai and ride strictly in the designated area.
