[Video] Reflecting on a 2,000km Bicycle Ride From Hanoi to Saigon for Charity

Last month, 19 intrepid cyclists rode nearly 2,000 kilometers from Hanoi to Saigon, all in the name of charity.

The 9th Hanoi-to-Ho Chi Minh City (H2H) ride ended at the Saigon Post Office on April 27, the conclusion of a nearly month-long journey down the spine of Vietnam.

Every year the ride is organized to raise money for five charities that work to help disadvantaged children within Vietnam: Saigon Children's Charity, Blue Dragon Children's Foundation, the ILA Community Network, KOTO and Live and Give.

Prior to the most recent ride, H2H had raised nearly US$300,000, and this year's team just passed US$40,000 in online fundraising, in addition to nearly US$10,000 raised offline. Donations are still being accepted via JustGiving through the end of this month.

Check out some scenes from the H2H 2018 ride below, in addition to a few post-ride reflections:
