Cycle Vietnam to Cambodia 2017

Join us on this cycling charity challenge as we bike from Vietnam to Cambodia!

This breath-taking charity bike ride is one of the best in the world of fundraising events and will take you from Vietnam's Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) to the ancient temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. Upon arrival, you will have time to explore the fascinating city of Saigon – the heart of Vietnam – before commencing with your charity challenge.

The 400km charity cycle route will take you through many traditional Vietnamese villages, following gorgeous streams and rivers, passing paddy fields adjacent to stunning mountain views. Few locals will have seen foreigners cycling past, and their interest and hospitality will spur on even the most exhausted cyclist.

You then cross the border into Cambodia and push on to the world famous temple site of Angkor Wat – arguably one of most fascinating wonders of the world! Built from 879 – 1191AD by the Khmer civilisation, Ankgor Wat represents one of mankind's most astonishing architectural achievements and is certainly the jewel in Cambodia's crown.
