Training for the Angkor Wat bike ride officially started this morning and 20 enthusiastic cyclists turned up before 8am this morning at Soria Moria hotel in the fresh (dare I even say cold) air! It does happen in Siem Reap sometimes and it’s a welcome relief to the constant hot, and the downpours during the rainy season. A light wind made this morning’s cycle almost pleasant as we trundled past the Siem Reap river, open lush green rice fields and ending up on airport road back to the town centre.
Thomas led the training group, hotly followed by the Sangkheum Center and Anjali young adults. It wasn’t a bad start as we clocked up 23 km in just about one hour and 15 minutes, only another 7 and we would’ve completed the target! We should be flying round the course after 4 more training sessions…
On the day Tanya, Thomas and I will be joined by some fellow Siem Reapers who enthusiastically turned up for training today – Natasha, Karla and her daughter Marli and Richard from Anjali House. Thanks for coming and thanks to the young adults too.
I am excited to say we have already reached 7% of our fundraising target and thank our loyal supporters for supporting us some more… as always, Mum and Dad, Lesley, Stu and a few others.
