SpiceRoads was proud to be a sponsor of this year’s edition of the Team Dai Challenge in early March.
Based in Vientiane, Laos, the members of Team Dai have ridden annually for the last 9 years to raise money for various underprivileged groups in Laos. This year’s goal was to cycle 450 kms from Vientiane to Vang Vieng and back, partly on a tough off road route, to raise funds for Vientiane Rescue, an all-volunteer ambulance service in the capital city. The goal was to raise US$10,000 but the group of 22 riders exceeded that by raising US$13,000. This was Product Manager Patricia Weismantel’s third time participating in the Team Dai Challenge and she was again impressed at not only how truly challenging the ride is but with the amount of money raised by the selfless group of recreational riders. Ride on Team Dai!
