The 18th of June 2019 marks the first year of the passing of our dear friend Auke, as many may know he was instrumental not only in forming Ride Asia but also producing some of the best mappings of Northern Thailand and Laos we are ever likely to see, his kindness and willingness to help others was something we all could take a lesson from.
Ride Asia made a promise to Auke's family we would honour his life in some way and although a venue in Laos would be more fitting as this was his passion, the logistics of getting riders and trucks into the country as a group will prove difficult.
Ride Asia proposes an orphanage, school or small village be located that would welcome donations on an annual basis in Thailand and perhaps a memorial plague of some kind be erected at such a place.
If any members know of such a place please let us know, this is a non-commercial event to give an opportunity to the riding community to come together in some small way to show our thanks and appreciation to a great man.
Donation's of toy's food and clothing would be welcomed as things are finalised.
Thank you all for your support in advance.
