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 enjoying a rest day at Chumphon. Here you’ll visit the Hands New Life Project and get to meet some of the fantastic children that Hands supports.

Then after a bus transfer you’ll head west for the last two days through the stunning mountainous Khao Sok region to arrive into Hands’ original Baan Tharn Namchai home to be greeted excited by the children you’ve worked so hard to support. You’ll get to see exactly how important your fundraised dollars are – not to just sustain the children, but to help educate and enrich their lives.

Overview

null
500km in 5 days: As a group you’ll travel 500km in just 5 days, with a rest day in the middle. Each day is broken down into shorter approximately 25km sections, making the distance much more achievable, with a rest and drinks break between each one. Our rides are designed to be “inclusive” – meaning the goal is not to finish first, but to finish together. We wait at each stop for all riders to arrive so there’s no need worry about being left behind.

Stunning Scenery: Journey through tropical rainforest, breathtaking vistas and vast landscapes to experience the true beauty and biodiverstiy of Thailand. You’ll travel through remote villages and meet the locals, far away from the typical tourist trails.
