About the ride

Heading down Thailand’s east coast beside the gulf of Thailand, you will start in the resort town of Hua Hin and cycle down the coast before crossing the mountains that divide the east and west. From there it’s a short trip to Khao Lak where the children from our Baan Tharn Namchai home will be waiting excitedly to greet you and show you exactly how important your fundraised dollars are – not just for sustaining them, but for deeply enriching their lives.





8 Nights Twin Share Accommodation

21st November –  27th November inclusive

Hotels will be modest in their offering and often in remote areas. WiFi is not always available however majority of the hotels do have WiFi services.


Hybrid Bike

You will be riding a hybrid bike which is a flat bar bicycle with tyres that are thinner than a mountain bike and thicker than a road bike. 

You will have options to bring your own seats, seat covers, pedals and cleats and we will provide more information about this closer to the event


Meals and Ground Transfers

All meals excluding lunch on the rest day are covered in your registration. Our cycling provider takes care of breakfast, lunch and dinner on the rides and provides plenty of sustenance throughout the day at the water stops. You definitely don’t go hungry on the ride!


Custom Cycling Kit

Your registration includes a customised cycling jersey, bib and gloves. You will have the opportunity to order additional kit if you choose. Alternatively you can
bring your favourite pair of cycling knicks and they will suffice.


Travel Bag and Team Shirt

You will receive a Hands Across the Water travel bag for the trip. You will be required to use this bag on the trip for your main luggage. There is plenty of room in the bag for the tour and additional clothing you might want to bring for holidays pre or post the ride. You will also receive a Hands Across the Water team shirt.


Support crew and bike mechanics

We only work with the best and you will get to meet some of the nicest Thai people and support crew that you will have ever met. Nothing is too much trouble as long as you bring your manners. Our bike mechanics keep everything running tip top during your tour in Thailand.


Individual Fundraising Profile

Once you have registered and paid your $500 deposit, you will receive a link to your personal fundraising page. You can update this page with your story and share your unique link to start raising funds. The team at Hands are here to support you with ideas so don’t be afraid to ask for help.


Training Program

You will receive a training program that will help prep you for your 500km journey. The key to your training will be time in the saddle as opposed to km’s ridden so even if the weather turns poor, you can get to the local gym or spin class to clock up your hours on the bike.


Dedicated ride coordinator

We have a team of people to help you through your journey but importantly there is a dedicated ride coordinator who is there to answer any questions about the ride and arrange any additional activities you might need to organise for your experience. We’re here to help so just ask!


Ride Communications

We’ll send you a rider information pack upon registration to get you on your way. You will also receive regular rider newsletters and invitations to a closed Facebook group where you will be able to support other riders and ask questions in a safe community.
