Our Top Pick Event for the month of July is the Nok Air “Ride for Life’ in Nakhon Si Thammarat. With nearly a thousand cyclists already registered to participate and over 160,000 Thai Baht pledged to benefit the Cardiac Children Foundation of Thailand this event is sure to be a good time with lots of good people on two wheels. Furthermore, this event made our Top Pick because of its awesome and informative website (in both Thai and English). The website provides route information, event schedule and easy online registration (again, in English).
This activity aims to raise money for charity to support the Cardiac Children Foundation of Thailand. Everyone can join the activity, not only can cyclists register and pledge a donation amount but a non-cyclist pledger can also donate and designate a biker to ride for them. Share this event with your friends and family so that they can be a part of helping children have a better life.
