Only six places are left on a 10-day ride across north west Vietnam led by round-the-world record holder, Mike Hall.

Mike Hall
Round-the-world record holder, Mike Hall, will lead 12 riders on an epic 850-mile ride across north Vietnam. Just three places are left

The Cycle-A-Difference ride next May will raise funds for UK-registered charity, Newborns Vietnam, which supports Vietnam’s Da Nang Hospital for Women and Children.

Riders will tackle some 850 miles, including four days in the mountains, and a final stage along the Ho Chi Minh trail.

Epic riding and amazing scenery are promised to riders who will pledge to raise £3,000 for the charity.

Cascading rice terraces, and the Hai Van pass, are included the route, which will start at Lao Cai near the Chinese border and will see riders tackle about 85 miles each day.

Hall should prove an experienced guide. The Lancastrian cycled 18,000 miles earlier this year to circumnavigate the globe in 91 days and 18 hours, setting a new world record.

Dave Jacquin, a digital content manager at Factory Media, is one of the nine riders who have already signed up to take part. To support Dave, visit http://www.justgiving.com/david-jaquin

Ride organiser, Luke Humphreys, said those considering the ride could find inspiration in a film made by participants on a Rapha Continental ride through Sapa, Vietnam. Click here to watch the film.

He added that the Cycle-A-Difference ride would be fully supported and held on a route that had been tested and would be tested again before the ride next May.
