Empowering Lotus Girls
The Lotus Educational Fund provides support to young girls from economically disadvantaged backgrounds in rural Savannahket, Laos. All funds donated from this bike ride will go directly to support the girl's education.
$70 provides resources and education for one girl for a year to attend School. Together how many lives can we change?

Cash donations are also accepted by Lotus Educational Fund committee members and myself.
Cash donations will be acknowledged on GoFundMe.
Safely arrived in Sydney on Saturday.
63 days. 4800km. One puncture. A brilliant journey.
Today (Sunday) I cylced over the Sydney Harbour Bridge and took lots of pics of bike, bridge and me. Also Opera house. It was a beautiful sunny weekend in Sydney - a fantastic way to end my journey. I'm ready to have a few days rest!!! Thanks for all your support. Helen
I have reached Yass having cycled 4400km. About 300km to reach Sydney - most likely this weekend!!!! So excited. An amazing journey. The little tent struggled to survive the wild storm. Tent pegs blown away and in the quest to find them (not possible) and get out the spare tent pegs (possible) the sleeping bag, me and stuff got very wet indeed. A rest day whilst everything dries out in the glorious Yass sunshine. The rear tyre is worn through so the spare tyre that I have carried all this way finally gets on the bike! All is great and looking forward to seeing the blood moon tonight. More mountains ahead before I reach the sea :)
Arrived in Port Augusta after seeing a wonderful emu and chicks - and I got a photo to prove it. 3100km done, all is good on the bike and body. Thanks to everyone for all the emails of support and words of encouragement.
Go on Helen! You can be so proud of your achievements!
You are amazing Helen. Sooo much effort!! I don't think people could realise how much work you put into to this. Than you. Inspiring!!!
Amazing challenge. You have gone beyond your initial target and these girls will be educated thanks to the generous efforts of yourself and your supporters. Have a safe ride Helen!
Only 5 weeks to go until the challenge begins so let's get behind Helen!
Let the challenge begin!
