Wheel2Wheel founder finishes amazing 125-day adventure

July 14, 2011

Morgan Parker, founder of non profit organization Wheel2Wheel, has come home…and he even arrived in style. Arriving on the 4th July at around noon, he was welcomed by friends, family, local motorbike riders as well as supporters. He led a pack of people mighty proud of his achievement. After all, how long has it been since a Brisbane, Australia native finished some 25,000 kilometers through Hong Kong, China, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Timor-Leste and finally in his native Australia? We may be wrong but we have a feeling that no other Australian has done something like this…and all for charity!

Truly, what Morgan Parker did was an amazing feat. His transcontinental charitable motorcycle expedition took him 125 days on the road but in all these 10 countries, he was able to raise awareness and even provide financial assistance to 10 brilliant yet under-recognized charitable organizations throughout Asia and Australia. To say that what Morgan Parker did was truly inspirational may even still be an understatement.

The Wheel2Wheel founder rode his trusty BMW F800GS motorbike through some of the region’s most beautiful and challenging terrain. He has truly shown persistence, will, dedication and passion for the under-privileged. His feat has become a reminder for those who have lost hope. His feat also serves as an inspiration for those who want to become heroes in their own right. Nothing is impossible. One can start small and one can also start with a big bang. What’s important is that one DOES something.

Morgan Parker’s feat is a great example of someone out there who is willing to cross borders, if only to help some people in need.

Wheel2Wheel is an innovative independent non-profit organisation created to raise awareness and provide financial assistance to brilliant yet under-recognised charitable organisations throughout Australasia. Wheel2Wheel is carbon neutral and entirely self-funded.

Wheel2Wheel: Vietnam and Animals Asia

December 23, 2010

On 1 March 2011 Morgan Parker and Simon Lock set off from Hong Kong on a 20,000 km, 100 day, 10 country enduro adventure, Wheel2Wheel.  Wheel2Wheel‘s purpose is to raise money and awareness for charitiable organisations across Asia and Australia.  Wheel2Wheel also aims to inspire others to step out of their comfort zone and do more to help others. The 10 country motorbike journey will take them from Hong Kong to Brisbane.  After passing through China, Wheel2Wheel will traverse Vietnam putting the spotlight on animal cruelty and the illegal poaching of moon bears for bile extraction in support of Animals Asia.


After crossing the China-Vietnam border, Morgan and Simon will tackle a dangerous 200km ride along the picturesque northern Vietnamese coastline to the beautiful Halong Bay.  Here theWheel2Wheel Team will witness at close range thousands of amazing limestone pinnaclesprotruding from the waters at Vietnam’s most famous World Heritage site.

Halong Bay

Cruising down a highway for 150km, the Wheel2Wheel team heads to the charming and historical city of Hanoi. As Wheel2Wheel continues their journey west, the Team will cross thelower ranges of the Tonkinese Alps down into beautiful valleys of classic Vietnamese rice fields.


The wild forests of Vietnam once provided the most nurturing habitats for both the Malayan sun bear and the Asiatic black bear (or moon bear). However, illegal poaching of bears has caused the numbers of both species to decline dramatically.  Asiatic black bears and sun bears are now facing total decimation in the wild as a result of the establishment of hundreds of illegal facilities, which keep bears for the extraction of bile.

Founded by Jill Robinson, Animals Asia team have been investigating bear farming in Vietnam since 1999. Today there are 3,410 farmed bears in Vietnam with another 602 captive bears used for display purposes.  Animals Asia is in need of help to raise funds for the Moon Bear Rescue Centre in Tam Dao National Park. They are now in the middle of building Phase Two which comprising dens, semi-natural enclosures, and rehabilitation areas for severely disabled bears. They also employ a veterinary team on site, bear managers and local workers – a team of people who will be there to care for the bears for their lifespan of 25 years or more.
