Fresh from mountain bike legend Hans Rey comes this edit featuring Tom Oehler and himself exploring the Highlands of Guatemala in Central America. The guys set out on a hut-to-hut trip with altitudes above 10,000 feet. To say the trails were rough and remote would be an understatement.

But the riding was not without a purpose. At the finish of the ride, Hans and Tom checked out a former Wheels 4 Life charity project. They also handed out an additional 31 bicycles at a local school. But the help didn’t end there. Back in Austria, photographer Stefan Voitl continued to raise money for Hans’ non-profit charity by organizing a photo exhibition from the trip.

Thanks Hans, for this very inspirational project!

Bikes were donated to a local school in need.
