Cycle to break the cycle of poverty

21 May 2024

Are you craving a challenge in 2025? Do you want to contribute to a meaningful cause and make a profound impact on families in need? REACH Siem Reap's third charity bike ride across the unique landscapes of Cambodia is an experience to remember forever—a chance to push yourself to your limits, experience the beauty of the country and its people, and make a tangible difference.  

REACH Siem Reap, a Cambodian-based charity founded by Australian Emily Williamson, is dedicated to helping local families break the cycle of intergenerational poverty. The power to change their lives lies in the hands of people who are in a position to give. When you fundraise and ride for REACH, you become a member of their global community, making lifelong connections with like-minded individuals who share your passion for making a lasting impact. 

After a previous Ride to REACH event, Emily spoke to the participants and shared, "The overwhelming positive feedback from the riders was truly heartening. It was incredibly moving to hear participants describe the experience as life-changing, each with their own unique story but all sharing similar themes. They felt challenged, connected, grounded, and rewarded—a powerful combination that left them with hearts full and a renewed sense of purpose." 

Funds raised from this charity event go towards supporting the ongoing operations of the REACH community centre in Siem Reap. They operate 12 programs six days a week, providing a safe place for more than 140 guardians and 270 children to access essential services such as education, healthcare, nutrition, and ongoing holistic support from the REACH team. When you participate in the ride, these families will receive the tools they need to break free from the cycle of poverty. 

The journey begins with welcome drinks in Kampot, followed by eight days of riding out of the 11-day trip, covering anywhere between 50-110 kilometres per day throughout the 'Kingdom of Wonder'. Regardless of your fitness level, the Ride to REACH is suited for everyone, whether you're a seasoned cyclist or a novice. Not at all a race, this transformative tour through Cambodia promises to be the adventure of a lifetime. 

United by a singular purpose to support the children and families at REACH Siem Reap, you'll form an incredible bond with fellow riders as you navigate the breathtaking landscapes of Cambodia, culminating in a ride through the famous Angkor Wat Temples towards the gates of REACH, where you will meet the families whose lives you've touched. With the tireless efforts of Ripple Effect Rides ensuring your well-being every step of the way, you will have the opportunity to interact with the local community and witness firsthand the impact of your collective efforts.  

Don't miss this chance to be part of a very special event that exemplifies the boundless potential of human compassion. By stepping out of your comfort zone and signing up for Ride to REACH, you'll be embracing an opportunity to live a life with purpose and rewrite the future for these children and their families.  

Ride to REACH is scheduled for January 17th-27th, 2025, giving you ample time to prepare, fundraise, and embark on this life-changing adventure. Sign up now and cross the finish line for REACH Siem Reap to make a lasting impact on the lives of families who need it most.
