Cycling is the perfect way for us to discover the real Burma, untouched by tourism.
Taking on 360km, we will experience some of the highlights of this stunning country, which is only just re-opening its doors to tourists, including the magnificent archaeological site of Bagan where over 2,000 temples can be found! We also explore the last royal capital, Mandalay, where we can visit the ancient monastery, the palace and much more.
This charity challenge is ideal for those looking to trail blaze!

When a child is diagnosed with cancer it threatens everything, for them and their family.
At a time when they should be busy being children, enjoying their rollercoaster teenage years or finding their feet at uni, life becomes full of fear. Fear of treatment, but also of families being torn apart, of overwhelming money worries, mental health stretched to breaking point, of having nowhere to turn, no one to talk to.
At Young Lives vs Cancer, we get that. We are the charity that helps children and young people and their families find the strength to face whatever cancer throws at them. But every day 12 more children and young people hear the devastating news they have cancer. We’ll face it all together – but we can’t do it without you.
