The challenge

  • Cycle 450kms through heart of Mekong Delta
  • Endless miles of quiet backwaters and country roads
  • Ancient temples and countless colourful pagodas
  • Angkor Wat, masterpiece of Khmer architecture
  • Visit Saigon, Phnom Penh and Angkor

A challenge of great contrasts, this cycling route covers 450kms past plantations, across waterways and through villages deep in the heart of the lush Mekong Delta in Vietnam, to the dry lands and ancient sights of Cambodia. Venture off the beaten track to the heart of the Mekong, taking in countless tranquil temples and pagodas, as well as bustling markets selling anything and everything. Siem Reap is the overall destination. From here, the group will 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.

Vietnam to Cambodia Charity Bike Ride

I've seen quite a few places over the years, but The Saigon to Angkor Wat bike ride was one of the most spectacular experiences of my life. What a great way to see a country. The entire event was very well organised and allowed us to focus just on getting through the challenge.

Vietnam to Cambodia Charity Bike Ride

It's hard to put into words what this challenge meant to me. I was riding I memory of one of my best friends. It was the most amazing experience of my life.  I didn't think my last challenge could be beaten but this was just superb. The countries, cultures, my biking buddies, the bike guides (brilliant bunch of guys) and the riding. Every 100 yards we saw something we'd never seen before or would see again. It was like a constant over stimulation of all your senses with every push of the pedal. Our bike guides were so generous with their humour and knowledge, sharing stories about their country, culture and the history of their country. This really was the most amazing time of my life and I would do it all again tomorrow, in a heartbeat. It helped with my healing from the loss of my friend. So thank you to Charity Challenge, the in country bike guides, the people we met along our ride and to my fellow bike buddies. Can I do it all again please?
