On your bike from Phuket to Koh Yao Noi for the kid’s community center



PHUKET: Amazing Bike Tours is organizing a charity bike ride on Koh Yao Noi (Small Long Island) on October 30 to raise money for the Koh Yao Children’s Community Center.

The Center is instrumental in teaching the island’s youth about the importance of protecting the environment and preserving the history, culture and traditions of life on Yao Noi. The Center also teaches the kids English.

In order to support the kids, Amazing Bike Tours is planning the trip from Phuket to Koh Yao Noi to spend the day cycling around the island. The ride is a gentle 30km circumnavigation of the island and includes lunch at a beachside restaurant and a stop at the community center to meet many of the local children that attend there. While there, the project director will explain about the center and its ongoing projects.

All cyclists joining this charity bike ride are required to make a minimum donation of 2,000 baht to participate on the ride, although more generous donations will be greatly appreciated. One hundred per cent of the money raised will be donated to the project.

Amazing Bike Tours will arrange and cover the expense of transportation to and from Bang Rong Pier, the jumping off point for the boat to/from Koh Yao Noi.

Trek mountain bikes, helmets and a bike guide will also be provided, as will drinks, snacks and fruit.

Sabai Corner Restaurant and Bungalows, who are co-sponsoring the event, will be providing a Thai lunch and drinks for all the riders joining the event.

The Phuket Gazette is also a sponsor of this charity project.
