About the ride
The North ride starts out of Nong Khai in Thailand’s north-east. You’ll follow the incredibly biodiverse Mekong River for seven days before heading inland to Yasothon to meet the children at Home Hug on the 8th day of your experience.
The South Ride will take you down Thailand’s east coast before crossing the mountains that divide the east and west. From there it’s a short trip to our Baan Tharn Namchai home where the children will greet you excitedly as you ride in! In 2019 we are dedicating the South Ride to a truly beautiful woman, Khun Rotjana, the inspiration behind and founding director of Baan Tharn Namchai. If you’ve met Khun Rotjana or been affected by her warmth and kindness we invite you to honour her memory during the Khun Rotjana Memorial Ride in 2019.
If you’ve done one of the individual rides, then there’s no greater challenge and reward than completing the double – covering 1,600km across both routes. You’ll recoup for two days in-between rides as well as a rest day in the middle of each ride.
