Kan was born in Bangkok in 1980. When he was a kid, he rode around on his tricycle every day—as he grew up, he became interested in marketing and for several years lost sight of his passion for bikes. However, a love of travel inspired him to change careers from marketing to tourism. After several years working as a trip planner in Bangkok, he decided to adopt a more active lifestyle and in 2008 he bought a GT mountain bike. He started cycling small distances and worked his way up to his longest ride yet: 300 kilometers in a single day’s ride from Bangkok to Khao Yai National Park. He grew so passionate about cycling that in 2014, Kan quit his office job to become a full-time bike tour guide.
