A group of 18 New Zealand cyclists arrived in Vietnam on August 19 for a tour to explore the country and have charitable activities.

The group, led by 2012 Olympic silver medallist Sarah Walker, will have a 350 km cycling journey through Vietnam’s beautiful sites.

During their trip, the athletes will meet local communities to learn about their culture and visit an orphanage and schools while raising fund for disadvantaged children in New Zealand.

The activity is part of cooperation between Variety, a non-profit organisation helping needy children, and World Expeditions travel company.-VNA
