The Ride to Provide Virtual Challenges take you on an immerse 800km virtual cycle through Thailand over the 30 days in June. This first of it's kind experience is all in aid of raising much needed funds to help enable Hands Across the Water the charity to keep supporting over 350 kids in Thailand with food, medicine, a home, care and love, medicine and education. 

Here are 10 great reasons why you should join too:

  1. You’re a little bit over the same old routine - EAT. SLEEP. ISOLATE. REPEAT. Create a new routine in June by joining us for this Challenge. 

  2. You’ve been talking about signing up for a Hands ride forever. Well this is your chance. No planes, no spicy Thai food, no rushing around trying to renew your passport. Experience our infamous bike rides from the comfort of your own lounge room. 

  3. You’re stuck with what to get Mum for Mother’s Day. Create a Mother/Daughter or Mother/Son team and take on the challenge together. 

  4. You love cycling and miss hanging out with your buddies on the road #socialdistancing. Join us in the Zoom Room and engage with a global community of riders. 

  5. You’re all out of homeschooling ideas for PE class. Sign up and together with your kids you could pedal your way through June supporting your kids and our kids on their development journey. 

  6. You’ve been talking about using this time to start new hobbies, get fitter, and do more for others. This Challenge will help with all of that. You can thank us later! 

  7. You’ve been trying to find a way to give back during this time but haven't found the cause or activity that speaks to you. With a low barrier to enter - just $49 to register and commit to $500 fundraising - your contribution will have a bigger effect than you will ever know. 

  8. You’re feeling disconnected from your team or work colleagues. Connect virtually by setting up a team challenge. You can participate individually and cycle the full 800km or band together to achieve the distance as one team.

  9. You’ve always wanted to go to Thailand. Join us for a virtual ride down the coast of Thailand taking in the amazing sights that this beautiful country has to offer. Plus, hit the top of the fundraising leaderboard and you’ll win yourself a trip to Thailand thanks to our friends at Tourism Authority Thailand. 

  10. You want to gain new experiences and have more fun. Who said Covid-19 had to take all of the wind out of our sails. Challenge yourself to try something new. Whether you are an avid cyclist or haven't been on a bike for years, you can join this experience to meet new people, learn more, have some fun and grow as a person.
