Charity Cycle Ride For Dogstar Foundation

Recommended Posts

Challenge: Cycle for Dogstar Sri Lanka
When: 2nd to 12th October 2014
Challenge yourself to the ultimate adventure of an 11 day charity bike ride in Sri Lanka and help us with our challenge to transform animal welfare
Take on the Dogstar cycle challenge in 2014 & experience first hand the natural beauty of our Tropical Island home Sri Lanka,
Sri Lanka, is an island in the Indian Ocean renowned for its natural beauty, fascinating culture and beautiful beaches. Our route combines these with fabulous, varied cycling as we ride from the northeast coast to the southwest, along the central highlands that form the spine of the country.
From paddy fields and lowland jungle to the twisting roads of the Knuckles mountains, onto tea plantations and British hill stations surrounded by cloudforest and waterfalls, this is a spectacular and diverse route. Coming down out of the hills to the southern plains, we finish our challenging ride at a beautiful beach.
Our Sri Lankan experience also takes in the medieval ruins of Polonnaruwa and the historic city of Kandy, two of the island’s most famous cultural attractions.
