Due to the worsening COVID-19 situation in Vietnam, the Charity Cycle Adventure from Hue to Phong Nha has been postponed until 4th to 6th March 2022. However, right now thousands of children are being seriously affected by this outbreak, and that number is rising. Children are stuck at home with their families struggling to buy life’s basic necessities. The physical and mental strain on these children is enormous. We need to take action now.
One day ride to give COVID backpacks
Join us to ride for one day, raise funds and give “COVID backpacks” to thousands of children in pandemic-affected areas across Vietnam. Each backpack contains essential food items to help the whole family overcome the stress of food insecurity during lockdown, as well as books for the kids, and a children’s mental health booklet designed for the parents.
Each rider is kindly asked to pay a registration fee of VND2,500,000. This fee covers logistics costs for one day’s ride and secures one backpack for a child. In addition, each rider commits to get friends, family colleagues to sponsor as many additional backpacks as possible. A backpacks cost is $60. We have a target of purchasing 5,000 backpacks for the ride, so we really need your help!
A childhood during COVID doesn’t have to be wasted. Ride with us so that the opportunity gap is not made even worse for disadvantaged children because of this pandemic.
The exact logistics and date of the ride will be finalised later since we must organize in a way that aligns with the most current government directive on COVID prevention. However, we are aiming to hold the ride as soon as restrictions are lifted, so please sign up now!
Riders can choose between 50km, 100km or 150km rides around the southern parts of Ho Chi Minh City, keeping as much as possible to quiet roads/tracks. We will divide into groups with a guide and support based on the chosen ride length. If you don’t live in HCM City, please register and organise a ride in your location. If other riders register in your location, we will connect you with them.

One of our courageous participants
What is Charity Cycle Adventure (CCA)?
CCA welcomes a range of enthusiastic cyclists from all over the world who can combine their love of cycling through the spectacular scenery of Vietnam with raising funds for those children and youngsters who are less fortunate than themselves. Over the span of 11 years, this event has raised over US$560,000, providing substantial support for the critical work saigonchildren does in Vietnam. We encourage participation from experienced riders and less experienced cyclists as our route is designed to accommodate both groups. Join our group of brave cyclists in raising funds to support disadvantaged children and youngsters in Vietnam to get a fairer start in life.
