Come join us as we seek to collectively ride a very meaningful distance and make some change in the world! 🚴🏿♀️ 🌏 🚴🏻♀️
The length of the Chinese/Vietnamese border, a known spot of human trafficking, is 1445km. To raise awareness about trafficking, and funds for Hagar’s work in Vietnam with survivors of trafficking and other forms of abuse, we are hoping to collectively travel the length of the border in one day and are encouraging all riders to make a donation to Hagar as well.
You can read more about Hagar and the 1445 challenge here.
This is a 100km ride from Mount Pleasant to Rangiora return. You can do the whole ride or just join in at any point to make up numbers and contribute some kms!
See below for the route details and stops. Plus – Biketober will shout riders their first hot drink at Beach Cafe! ☕
To raise a bit of extra cash and draw specific attention to the issue of forced marriage, and Vietnamese women being trafficked across the border and sold as brides in China, some of us will be riding in wedding attire! Come dressed in wedding outfits (optional of course!) 👰🏽
