You can swim in The Mall. Rooks Country Club and Korat Resort. I wouldn't swim in the lakes!

There are hilly cycling possibilities in Wang Nam Kheow and Khao Yai.

There is another option.  You could also donate 4k baht to one of the local expat "bicycles for kids" charities and then join in on one of their strenuous bike rides on the back roads along the private parts of town or maybe along one of the dangerous stretches of open highways, followed by hugs from everyone for a job well-done having survived.

One of the daily routes of a local cycling enthusiasts includes this particular stretch of road to and from Pak Thong Chai and passes right in front of the intersection at Korat's Pepsi factory.  Here's a snapshot taken yesterday at that location, which I think clearly demonstrates just how "strenuous" this stretch of road can be. 

I prefer cycling around a lake or park, and taking from what you mentioned in one of your previous posts, you would certainly be in better reach of a lady you wouldn't have to be fussy about, and one that would certainly exceed the qualities thou seeks :)   Notice the landing location of the car in this photo.

It seems that they stopped only to change a tyre.

You should see what the other vehicle involved looked like.  Too bad I couldn't get a shot of it before the tow truck pulled it away.

Turning the vehicle over saves having to look for the jack.

  As long as you dont get the jack in the swimming pool.
Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.

Or in this case, look for the Jack-Off who actually tried to do a runner from the scene attempting to make his way down the street as fast as his busted up legs could carry him.  Thank God for those Body Snatchers who in their feeble attempt to apprehend this villain from society, actually caused another isolated accident.

I just had another look at the picture and what you pointed out there, SAF.  They're not changing the tyre.  They've already begun to strip the car for parts to sell.
