About the Ride

This stunning new ride will venture into Thailand’s Kanchanaburi province, the site of the infamous Death Railway and Bridge over the River Kwai.  You will cycle through amazing countryside enjoying visits to ancient temples and ruins, and charming local villages among the forest and hills of Kanchanaburi. The ride will finish at our New Life Project in Kanchanaburi. For those that have ridden before, you would have visited the New Life Project at Chumphon, this is the sister property that is home to more than 60 kids.


320km in 4 days:  The Hands Across the Water rides are designed to be inclusive – meaning the goal is not to finish first, but to finish together. There is plenty of support both on and off the bike and there will be no shortage of people to help you achieve this incredible feat.
Stunning Scenery:  Journey through ancient sites, 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. You will have the opportunity to visit some incredible historic sites and beautiful waterfalls.
Fundraise $2,000:  You are required to raise $2,000 for Hands Across the Water to qualify for the ride. 100% of donations go directly to the children in Thailand. The team at Hands and your ride leaders will support you with your fundraising every step of the way with access to our dedicated events and marketing team. Additionally we hold various events and raffles through the year that you will be able to leverage to spread the word and raise your funds.
Meet the children:  You will finish the ride at New Life Project in Kanchanaburi and be greeted warmly by the children you have worked so hard to support. You’ll see first-hand the difference your phenomenal effort has made to so many lives.
