THE ULTIMATE GOAL: For every Ride Expeditions tour to have a positive impact on the destination.

Every year, we have 50+ tours that take hundreds of guests to remote corners of the world. With this, there’s potential to either do a lot of damage or to do a lot of good in the countries we travel through. We made the decision a long time ago to do good with this business… After all, if every one of our tours does some good, even if just a little, that’s going to add up to a massive difference over the years!

Do we have all the answers? Certainly not, and there’s a long road ahead, but we’re committed to continually increasing the positive impact we have on the destinations in which we travel.

CHARITY

Since day 1, Ride Expeditions has given back to the community, donating to a local Cambodian charity, M’Lop Tapang. And as of 2024, we will be donating part profits and raising awareness for other local charities around the world in the countries in which we operate our adventures.

CARBON REDUCTION

There’s no hiding the fact that riding motorcycles is not the most eco-friendly way to travel, and our guests ride a combined distance of over 1.2 million kilometres on our tours every year! That’s not something we can ignore…

So in a bid to make our operations carbon-neutral, we now donate to the World Land Trust (and we we donated to One Tree Planted before this change).

LEAVE IT BETTER

Doing what we do, we see the problems of single-use plastics more than most. From piles of plastic bottles scattered across an otherwise pristine landscape in the Himalayas, to plastic bags caught up in trees in Mekong river. Plastic sucks.

Of course, we’ve always cleaned up after ourselves, but a new training initiative for all of our teams is ‘Leave It Better’. So, rather than simply clearing up after ourselves, we’ll pick up an additional bag of litter wherever we stop with our support vehicle (if there’s litter to pick of course!).

We also try to limit our plastic usage wherever possible by, for example, providing drinking water from big sterilised containers rather than individual bottles.

WORKING WITH LOCALS

We ALWAYS work with locals, for every single trip and in every one of our destinations. Occasionally, they may only be in the background, but they’ll always be involved in the operation. We also use locally owned accommodations, restaurants, and shops wherever possible.

Ultimately, we believe that trips such as ours should benefit the destinations we enjoy riding through, providing employment and other economic benefits for the local communities.
