H2H over the Finish Line

Written by

28 days and 2,000km after leaving Hanoi, 20 volunteer cyclists from eight countries completed a charitable bike ride from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City at the end of April.

Raising vital funds for underprivileged children in Vietnam, this was the ninth year of the H2H bike ride, a ride which takes in some of the most stunning mountain and coastal scenery of Vietnam. Among the welcoming party when the riders arrived in Saigon was the British Consular General, Ian Gibbons.


“Each year the group has raised more and more money and this year they’ve [hit] US$50,000,” said Gibbons. “Now, one month after leaving Hanoi tired but happy, they’re back. A wonderful achievement!”


With five charities benefiting from the ride — Saigon Children’s Charity (SCC), The ILA Community Network, Live and Give, Know One Teach One (KOTO), and the Blue Dragon Foundation — donations can be made until the end of May by clicking on
