On March 1, 2011 Morgan Parker and Simon Lock start their 20,000 km, 100 day, 10 country journey for charity by taking it one stage at a time. The name of this enduro adventure is Wheel2Wheel. Wheel2Wheel’s purpose is to raise money and awareness for 10 charities and non-profit organizations across Asia. The 16 stages on this endurance adventure will take them through 10 countries from Hong Kong to Brisbane. This is a trip that most of us would only dream about.
Wheel2Wheel is 100% self funded. All Donations through “Live the Dream” options is channeled back to the 10 Charities.
Stage one of the trip starts in beautiful Hong Kong. A gem of a city sitting in the South China Sea. Despite its beauty it has terrible problems. Over crowding creates hazardous air pollution levels. Wheel2Wheel has selected Clean Air Network as their Hong Kong Charity.
Clean Air Network (CAN) is an independent NGO which aims to encourage the public to speak out about the health impacts of air pollution. Donations can be made directly to CAN or by sponsoring Wheel2Wheel through “Live the Dream” options. 100% of the profits from Live the Dream will go back to the 10 charities. Find out more about CAN on their website http://www.hongkongcan.org, Facebook or on Twitter.
After settng off on their BMW F800GS motorbikes from BMW Concessionaires (HK) Limited Morgan Parker and Simon Lock will leave Hong Kong and travel north, the noise and pollution of the city slips away and rural land and forests dominate the landscape. There is nothing but open road on the way to the China border. What lies ahead is an adventure waiting to unfold.
Wheel2Wheel is an independent non-profit organisation which aims to raise awareness and provide financial assistance to brilliant yet under-recognised charities throughout Australasia.

By harnessing the support of mass media, Wheel2Wheel aims to provide the public with objective insight to the key social, environmental, and humanitarian issues facing the region.
