Ivy Discovery Institute is organizing a charity bicycle trip from Beijing to Venice this coming August 31, 2004 and we are looking for a couple more international bicyclists (any nationality welcome).
Our team will raise money for education as we follow some of the Silk Road and Marco Polo's route. The goal is to raise $400,000USD.
This trip will take three and a half months, and along the way we will be going into schools, talking to students, getting to know local communities and lobbying governments for education.
Applicants must be in shape, capable of riding 150 km per day for six out of seven days per week and work well in teams. Please do not apply if you cannot meet these requirements.
If you are interested, please email Team Leader Eric Schmidt at firstname.lastname@example.org with your resume embedded into the body (no attachments please).
All accepted applicants must be in Beijing, China no later than August 15. Applications will not be accepted after July 29 and final decisions will be made before July 31.
