Rebecca Rusch, one of mountain biking’s top endurance racers, will ride the Ho Chi Minh trail in Laos to raise awareness for unexploded ordinances (primarily land mines) November 13-20. The seven-time world champion accomplished a similar ride in 2015, but this time, she’s leading a group of U.S. cyclists with a mission to help efforts to remove the mines that remain from the Vietnam War.
“It’s a special place, but the issue of UXO’s [unexploded ordinances] remains very real. This journey is an opportunity to share the route with other cyclists and educate the public about the urgent need to eradicate UXOs,” Rusch said of the planned 550-kilometer ride.
