Rally Indochina

Rally Indochina

Historic Adventure Charity Rally
Seven days of riding, covering over 1,500km

In April 2011, you can join an exclusive group of committed bikers who will ride the remnants of the original Ho Chi Minh Trail in Vietnam to raise money for local children still afflicted by a war that finished over 35 years ago.

This charity ride is open to all licensed motorcycle riders who have a sense of adventure and a desire to give something back to Vietnam.

The Rally will depart Hanoi on April 13, and follow the Ho Chi Minh Trail through famous battlegrounds where the scars of war are still visible, including Khe Sanh, Hamburger Hill, the DMZ, Vinh Moc tunnels, the national war cemetery, the former border, and the Mu Gia pass, amongst others. While the ride ends at Phu Bai airport near Hue, the group will fly to HCM City for a few days of R&R and sightseeing.

Complete the Rally on a beautiful, comfortable, old style, bucket-seat, 650cc Urals, which were used by the military in Vietnam in their heyday.

A full 40% of Rally fees will be directed through the Intrepid Foundation and distributed to one of their supported charities in Vietnam, the Blue Dragon Children's Foundation, which works with disadvantaged children in northern and central Vietnam.

Challenge yourself. A once in a lifetime experience!

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
