Bike shopping for Cambodian kids - Dec 17 to 21

The grand Royal Palace at Sisowath Quay

Once again, I'm leading a team today heading for Phnom Penh, Cambodia where we will be bringing 35 boxes of donated goodies for the kids at COSI Orphanage. We shall also be teaching sports, offering kindergarden and design consultation for Methodist School of Cambodia and bringing lessons in English, Chinese, Art, Leadership as well as doing some renovation works at the orphanage.

But one of the things I look forward to is to buy some bicycles for the kids. The challenge is to get something sturdy enough as their roads are pretty dusty and unpaved. These bikes will be used for going to school (some 10km away) and for errands.

I have no experience shopping for bikes in Cambodia as they will all be the chinese made types so its going to be an interesting shopping experience. I hear they range from US$35 to US$120.

Hoping to bring some Christmas cheer to the wonderful Cambodian kids!
