Everyone Loves A Roadtrip
As American author Don Williams Jr put it, “the road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination.” That's why, as guys, we love road trips, weekends away, and overseas bucks parties; we love the sense of the unknown, about the achievement of setting out with a course of mind, and being able to change and learn as required.
The Tour de Thailand is just such an adventure. Not a race but a journey of discovery, the charity bicycle ride between Chiang Mai and Phuket is in its 8th year, and registration for the December event has just opened.
Benefiting Operation Smile Thailand, which gives corrective surgery to children born with cleft lips and palates, as well as the Foundation for the Blind in Thailand, this is an epic 2,000km cycle through some of Southeast Asia's most stunning scenery.
You can opt for the full kabang or just ride the north or south 'half', and the tariff includes meals, good accommodation, support staff and all of life's little necessities along the way.
