SHANGRI-LA HOTELS AND RESORTS’ RIDE FOR HOPERAISED OVER US$ 65,000
 

Three-week Shenzhen to Shanghai bike journey travelled nearly 2,500 kilometres
 
Almasalla Arab Travel Portal News …Organised by Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, the three-week, nearly 2,500-kilometre Ride for Hope charity bike ride raised over US$ 65,000 along the way, tripling its original goal. The charity funds will be used to build water cellars for 20 families in a small village in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region and to help Shenzhen Blue Ocean Conservation Association and the Shanghai-based Will Foundation.

With the joint efforts of 11 Shangri-La properties in South and East China, six dedicated riders cycling with unified TREK brand bikes completed the entire journey. A group of more than 1,000 bikers from four different provinces covering 22 cities joined the ride in their respective cities.
 

The six dedicated riders included: Nicholas Smith, resident manager of Futian Shangri-La, Shenzhen and initiator of the charity ride; Thomas Bird, a Shenzhen-based British freelance writer; Carl Wu, a young cycling aficionado; Li Xiao Bao, who once cycled 2,600 kilometres from Yunnan to Lhasa, crossing the west of China; Lu Yushui, a cycling enthusiast dedicated to helping children in Guangxi Autonomous Region; and Lu Bao Kang, who ranked number ten among 500 racers in the most recent bike tournament in Beihai City.

“It was an amazing journey,” said Smith. “The idea for ‘Ride for Hope’ first came up in January 2013. To see it realised with the help of Shangri-La colleagues who warmly embraced the idea, our generous sponsors and all the supportive people we met along the way is incredibly heart-warming. The money raised for these three worthy charities will make a real difference in people’s lives.”
