The Tour of Hope (TTOH) is an international non-profit initiative of cycling enthusiasts who come from all walks of life. They aim to convert their passion for cycling into support for the less privileged.
Since 2006, they have held yearly bicycle tours in which riders raise funds for charitable causes that improve health and education.
In 2014, as in the previous years, TTOH will work together with World Vision of Thailand to build a library, along with books and computers, north of Chiang Mai so that more than 200 school children and 900 adults will have access to better knowledge. TTOH will also donate bicycles to needy children so that they can cycle to school.
The Tour of Hope 2014, will take place Nov 1-8 in Thailand. Starting in Udon Thani, the 750 km ride – not a race – will go west from the Thai-Laotian border, along the Mekong River to Chiang Mai. The cyclists will have the support of an established bike-tour agency with its fleet of support vehicles and experienced guides. At the end of the ride, the cyclists will see and meet the people they have helped with their efforts as we hand over the library and bicycles. It’s an experience that is worth every drop of sweat from every meter of tarmac covered.
