Cambuni 2019: The Cambodia Unicycle Tour

Our next unitour will be in one of my favourite countries, Cambodia!  I unicycled from Vietnam to Cambodia as part of a charity cycle tour in 2004, which is where I first met Jason Williams, just before he went on to start Grasshopper Adventures.  Since then, we have organised tours through Laos, Vietnam, India, Mongolia, China, Uzbekistan and Nepal.   After a 4yr break from unicyclists, Jason is back to lead our next tour!

The tour will start in the UNESCO World Heritage area of Siem Reap/Angkor, where you get to unicycle amongst thousand year old remnants of the Khmer empire.  We ride through the Cambodian countryside, visiting more recent parts of Cambodia history, including the sobering site of Choeung Ek (The Killing Fields).  From there we unicycle to the coastal retreat of Kep/Rabbit Island, and finish off the tour in Kirirom National Park.

Vietnam to Cambodia by Unicycle- OXFAM Cycle Challenge 2004

This was what kicked off my interest in Unicycle Touring, and inspired this website.  Back in 2003, I heard about a charity challenge being put together by OXFAM.  A group of bicyclists (and one unicyclist!) spent a year fundraising for OXFAM in Cambodia.  We cycled from Saigon to Siem Reap, having a lot of fun visiting our sponsored OXFAM project along the way.
