People are amazing and that is the bottom line. Everyone brings something unique to the table. Our practices are to avoid exploitation or discrimination in any way as well as support local initiatives where the local entrepreneur benefits most.We are ever learning about limited resources and especially in Asia with its large population. We are trying our best to leave very small tire tracks and foot prints. Small details like using 5 gallon refillable drums of water and bike bottles instead of small plastic water bottles or carrying all our garbage to larger cities that can handle it are a couple of examples. There are several Charities that we work with, especially with our School tours, where hands on help working with local communities (not them just watching us) is combined with some fantastic cycling or hikes.
