About the ride

Heading down Thailand’s east coast beside the gulf of Thailand you’ll ride through resort towns such as Hua Hin and Khiri Khan before crossing the mountains that divide the east and west. From there it’s a short trip to Khao Lak where the children from our Baan Tharn Namchai home will greet you excitedly and show you exactly how important your fundraised dollars are – not just for sustaining them, but for deeply enriching their lives.
