Dear KEEN team:
Thank you so much for your support for The PEPY Ride V. Although the ride had it’s ups and downs, like all rides in life do, we feel that it was an amazing trip, and we thank you for being part of it.
As our legs recover, we at PEPY are reflecting on the most adventurous educational tour of the year. Twenty people joined us for the 1000KM journey, cycling across Cambodia and stopping along the way to learn about PEPY and our NGO partners. The route took us to remote rural areas such as Bantey Cahmmar where we had the opportunity to see first hand the benefits of community driven tourism initiatives, to the bustling streets of Phnom Penh where we learnt about Cambodia’s dark history, and ended down on the coast. We aim to educate our tour participants about responsible travel and inspire them to go out and take actions to create the futures they hope to see in the world. One of the quotes we say throughout our trips is always:
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes YOU come alive, and then go out and do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” YOU all at KEEN are doing that – bringing the world the most comfortable shoes for adventurous people, even those who cycle across Cambodia. YOU all are doing what makes you come alive we think, and we’re psyched to be on your team.
Hugs, love, and thanks from the PEPY people.
