Helping young people reach their goals.
Location: Vietnam and Cambodia
This challenge entails cycling 500 kilometres past plantations, across waterways and through villages deep in the heart of the lush Mekong Delta in Vietnam, to the dry lands and contrasting sights of ancient Cambodia.
You will pass temples and countless colourful pagodas, havens of calm and tranquillity - not to mention bustling markets! Your route takes you off the beaten track into the Mekong proper.
Few locals will have seen foreigners cycling past, and their interest and hospitality will spur even the most tired cyclist to keep on pedalling.
Your end destination is the town of Siem Reap from where you can explore the ancient city of Angkor. Built from 879-1191AD by the Khmer civilization, Angkor represents one of humankind's most astonishing architectural achievements and in 1992 was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
