2023 RMIT - KOTO Dream Ride
We are delighted to announce that the 2023 KOTO Dream Ride will be held on December 2nd, with collaboration from RMIT. This is our 21st annual Dream Ride that we have been organising and this year, we are proud to introduce you to our KOTO training centre in Phat Tich, Bac Ninh at the destination. The ride is a great opportunity to get family and friends together to ride and spend a day outdoors.
Growing from 30 riders in 2002 to over 200 riders in 2019, and even during COVID, our online event hosted by Intrepid in 2022 raised more than $50,000, the Dream Ride has raised over US$250,000 since its inception. This is a popular event on the Hanoi calendar with many expatriate and Vietnamese families participating in the 55km (or the 25km option) ride through a variety of stunning Northern Vietnam landscapes including villages, pagodas and green paddy fields with many locals and KOTO trainees and alumni cheering on the participants!
This year, KOTO’s Class 43 Dream Ride will be the most exciting journey yet, leading to our forever home - the KOTO training center in Phat Tich, Bac Ninh. The even will be a great source to fund our Class 43, who will be trained with valuable skills and supported to enter sustainable employment. Class 43 has 45 trainees which are currently enrolled in our training program. They hail from backgrounds of crime, poverty, violence and/or have been orphaned. By joining us, you'll create memorable impact not only with their personal development, you’ll create a positive ripple effect throughout their community that will go on for years.
