Cycling to raise awareness of plastic pollution.

The Peloton Against Plastic is a bicycle ride from Hanoi to Bangkok, designed to generate conversation about prevention of plastic pollution.

We’ll visit grass-roots organisations in the region that are helping reduce the negative impacts of plastic pollution and take in the beautiful scenery and must-see tourist destinations of Thailand, Cambodia & Vietnam. Through the ride, we will showcase local business solutions which address plastic pollution, and in turn boost local jobs and provide long term economic empowerment for local communities.

Plus, if you book onto the Peloton, 10% of the trip cost will be donated directly to our Intrepid Foundation partner, Rehash Trash and matched dollar-for-dollar by The Intrepid Foundation*.

Join the peloton

The Peloton Against Plastic will ride from 16 June - 12 July 2018 on a special departure of our Cycle South-East Asia trip. 

You can book to join the Peloton for the entire ride through South-East Asia, or just one of the two legs; Vietnam, or Cambodia and Thailand.
