Did I tell you that it was REALLY cold during my trip to Bangkok 2 weeks ago? I’m not kidding! It was lower than 20 degrees celsius! And when the cold wind blew, I had to pinch myself to check that I didn’t travel to the wrong country. I felt like it was spring or autumn in some temperate country.
So it was on such a cold and windy night that T and I chanced upon Pedalicious. We were walking down a rather dark lane, lined with mainly low-rise residential properties when we saw a warm inviting light from a particular unit. We stood for a while looking at an interesting digital ad they had on the exterior of the second level of this little bistro. Itching to check out the interior which certainly looks photo-worthy from the outside, I stepped in. We were warmly welcomed by the owners and were very glad to find one of the co-owners Raf spoke perfect English. We were intrigued since the place was filled with bikes. Even with my limited knowledge on them, I could see these folks were serious cyclists. Raf filled us in by explaining that a couple of them co-owners are bike lovers and decided to open this place which has a bicycle theme. Of course, they welcome cyclists and non-cyclists alike!
This piece of artwork adorning one of the walls is by one of the co-owners, Jekky. If you’ve noticed, the guy in the picture has no ears. “No air resistance when cycling”, said Jackie with a wide smile.
I didn’t really know what photo this is until Raf told me this is actually a rather rare photo of the king in his younger days. On a bike!
Charmed by the simple but beautiful furnishings, I quizzed Raf a little about them and he revealed that the co-owners are all designers in their previous lives. Ah huh! That explains the good taste. Isn’t it cool to get together with a bunch of like-minded pals and start something all are passionate about? I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere in Pedalicious as well as the really warm welcome and little conversations we had with Raf and his friends.
