An exciting, beautiful and scenic motorcycle tour over Cambodia’s Cardamom Mountains. Not only will we all have the time of our lives riding through the mountains, but we will be making a tremendous difference to the lives of many others around the country. We will be riding in aid of M’Lop Tapang, a local charity based in Sihanoukville who do a fantastic job getting children off the streets and into school, helping families create an income, provide them with shelter and clean water, help deal with alcohol problems… the list goes on and on. To cut it short – these guys are amazing. You can rest assured that they will make the most out of every cent donated by ensuring funds are allocated where they are needed most.
