Vietnam Challenge Ride, November 2015

The Cycle a Difference Vietnam Challenge Ride is the challenge of a lifetime cycling adventure across northwest and central Vietnam. The ride begins in Lao Cai close to the Vietnam boarder with China, with five exhilarating days in the mountains, and ventures onto the historic Ho Chi Minh trail before heading for the famed Hai Van pass. Cycle a Difference is more than a bike trip – it is an inspiring journey with like-minded people who are united by their passion for cycling and making a difference in life.

On the Cycle a Difference ride, you will experience epic biking, amazing scenery, towering mountains, cascading rice terraces, the simple rhythms of rural life and the warmth of Vietnamese hospitality these all combine to make ‘cycling for newborns’ exciting and fun.

There are 10 days of riding and each one is a new adventure the ride finishes with a heroes welcome at the Da Nang Hospital for Women & Children The highlight is the opportunity to see the special care baby unit that this ride is supporting, meet the doctors, nurses and witness the babies bond with their parents to experience the moment where language, economics and nationality fall away, allowing you to connect for one cause, as one human being to another.
