If you have ever felt the need to get on a motorcycle and just go, there are ways you can use that impulse to help others. Take the Rally For Rangers foundation, for example. In 2018, this group of motorcyclists will ride over 1,800 miles across remote areas of Mongolia and Patagonia to raise funds to buy bikes and donate them to park rangers. These park rangers can then use the new motorbikes to pursue “illegal poachers, miners, campers and other spoilers” of the national parks they protect. Below is footage from a rally that took place in Mongolia, where the inspiration for this project began.

Feel like joining the 2018 rallies? A $8,500 ticket pays for your domestic flights and gets you all the camping gear and food you will need on the trip.
