Riding Through Cambodia

Updated: Mar 14, 2019

In February 2019, me and 20-odd colleagues and friends rode shopping bikes - yes, really! - from Phnom Penh to Angkor Wat temples in Cambodia. The aim, apart from having fun, was to deliver 30-odd bikes to a small school near Angkor so that the pupils would have an easier time getting from their homes each day. Some were having to walk 7km each way to and from the school, which is an extra-curricular establishment teaching English to children who hope to serve the nascent tourist and business sectors as they transition to the world of work.
