The tour of your life
Fundriding – works like a “sponsored walk” in school days, only on two wheels instead of on foot.
In preparation for this trip, you need to acquire your own Km sponsors totaling 100 cents per kilometer ridden – your first step as a development worker.
Fundriding – that means: on two wheels across a fascinating country with breathtaking landscapes. Together with the fundriders, we decide on a social tour project in advance of the trip. This could be orphans in Ukraine, or an aid project in Tanzania, Cambodia or Laos.
On Fundriding tours, every kilometer ridden makes a small but lasting contribution to helping the many people suffering from war, the consequences of climate change or hopeless poverty.
If you are completely unfamiliar with the principle of Sponsored Walks or if you have any questions about Fundriding or how to acquire Km sponsors, please ask, we will be happy to help. In addition, we help every fundrider with their own rider and donation page, their own V-card, flyers and stickers.

Jimmy is our Laotian guide on the Fundriding tours. Even though he is really fit, he lovingly and gladly takes care of the somewhat weaker participants. His local knowledge and his information about the region are indispensable.
Fundriding is adventure, two-wheeling and social commitment all in one. In order to make this public and to get heard in the two-wheeler scene, it needs partners for whom social commitment and high quality are just as important. Even when Roland was still driving the charity race cab, these three companies were among the most loyal and best sponsors. Fortunately, we can no longer count how many lives we were able to save together or how many people we were able to spare or at least alleviate the often difficult fate. What is certain, however, is that all our thanks go to their support of the good cause.
The Fundriding tours, whether by scooter, motorcycle, enduro or even emission-free by bike, also cause at least greenhouse gases, especially of course because we travel by plane.
Unfortunately, we can not prevent this, our commitment helps countless people who are doubly punished, not least because of climate change. But what we can prevent are plastic bottles, transport containers made of styrofoam, “straw” straws and plastic bags, just to name a few. Therefore, we have set up the Fundriding tours as plastic-free as possible. In addition, from now on we will plant an additional tree for each individual Emergency Project of the participants.
