Our Mission

While SE Asian countries get a bit of a bad ‘wrap’ when it comes to plastic. Our aim is to listen to locals, hear their ideas, their solutions and riff about the future of the plastic menace. Raise awareness of what is and can be achieved and maybe raise a little a money for their cause.

The Ride

The Peloton Against Plastic is a bicycle ride from Hanoi to Bangkok with partner Intrepid Travel, 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.

Everyone is welcome to join us and ride for an hour, a day or a week to tell us about their thoughts on plastic. We will also be joined by some interesting and amazing guests. 

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