the chain reaction project

“The Chain Reaction Project is a bridge of solidarity and compassion that connects us as fellow human beings.”

Dr. Jose Ramos-Horta
President of Timor-Leste

Four women embark on a five-day, 450 km mountain bike race through a distant country where the natural beauty is as challenging as it is exotic.

The inaugural Tour de Timor featured over 250 competitors from all over the world. The "Race for Peace" was the initiative of President and Nobel Laureate, Dr. José Ramos-Horta as part of his nation-building campaign to promote peace throughout the country.

East Timor suffered a brutal Indonesian military invasion and 24-year occupation that left over 100,000 Timorese dead. Secured by a U.N. Police force in 1999 and guided by international support, the nation endured a shaky three-year transition that culminated with the birth of Timor-Leste in 2002.

An all-female cycling team representing the nations of Singapore and South Africa vowed not only to complete the grueling Tour de Timor together, but managed to raise over $35,000 dollars for Hiam Health -- a non-profit in the capital city of Dili dedicated to rehabilitating malnourished children.

Set out on this exhilarating journey and discover the beauty behind the scars of Asia's newest nation...
