Cambodia bike 2005

24 January 2005

UCL's Brain Research Trust (BRT) has organised a charity bike ride across Thailand and Cambodia between 3 and 13 November 2005.

Angkor Wat, Cambodia

The money raised from the expedition will be used to help develop better treatments, surgical procedures and in some cases cures for neurological conditions such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, brain tumour, stroke and for trauma related to serious head injuries.

The cyclists will set off from Bangkok on the 400km journey that will take in Thailand's wildlife reserves and floating villages before ending at Cambodia's Angkor Wat. Along the way, the cyclists will be able to visit animal sanctuaries and get to experience the local life of the two countries.

The trip is open to all, with people from all ages and abilities from 18 upwards taking part. To find out more about the expedition or to take part call +44 (0)20 7404 9982 or email amy@brt.org.uk for an application pack.
