The time for good resolutions has arrived … For some of us, this is about participating in the traditional charity ride organised by the Old Bangkok Bangers Rugby Club. The Bangers on Bike Charity Ride has, for 8 years, succeeded in subsidising several NGOs worth 4 million bahts. For having visited several of their centres in Phuket and Bangkok, we know that this money is well invested and changed the lives of hundreds of children by buying school supplies, paying uniforms, school fees or even building a canteen and a small library named "Bangers on Bikes Dinning Hall". But there is still so much we can do…
This year, we will cycle from Yangon in Myanmar to Bangkok via the mountain range in central Thailand. The challenge is spread over 5 days with more than 1,000 km and 2 or 3 interesting hills. Cheery on the cake, we will start on the 19th of February from Yangon and plan to arrive on the 24th in Bangkok for the opening ceremony of the Bangkok International 10’s. Details of the route can be found here: https://www.plotaroute.com/routeprofile/343876
Each member of the group agrees to bring the equivalent of 30,000 baht knowing that the integrality of this money is going to the charities and that the expenses related to transport and logistics will be taken care of by the cyclists.
YOU can help us to accomplish this challenge and change lives by giving via an online pool at the following address (secure payment): https://www.lepotcommun.fr/pot/0k742jx7 . (French by default but you’ll find an English version at the bottom of the page.) Donations in cash or cheque (please make payable to the Old Bangkok Bangers by Chakrit Wongsakornraksa) can also be received by any of the BoB’s at our regular trainings.

Have a very good start of the year and special thanks to those who will support this cause. The biggest gift for all the riders is the smile of all these children to whom we give a chance in life and a hope for a happier future.
That’s all folks,
