The GT Rider Mae Hong Son Loop Memorial ride in honour of departed riders is in its 8th year this year. Originally we started with a couple of plaques & 100 year rose bushes for TJ & Simon, planted at Wat Chong Klang by the lake in Mae Hong Son. The TJ John Hamilton - Simon Siinthai Grant Memorial Ride In 2012 we added Dan White's ashes & another plaque. Dan White RIP In 2016 we have Tom Forde's ashes. Rip Tom Forde The set up we have at Wat Chong Klang is now unsatisfactory & we need to do something better. After a meeting with the monks & abbot at Wat Doi Kong Mou, overlooking Mae Hong Son we have been granted permission to erect a proper GT Rider Memorial chedi at the very top of the hill, below the communication towers & above Wat Doi Kong Mou. There is a small wat at the very top behind the wat on the west sunset side there is a plot we have been granted permission to build a chedi In the next few weeks we will endeavour to have a chedi ready for the 8th annual ride on the 5-6th November. We would like some feed back on some designs we are considering. Sensible comments on the below are invited. Which style do you prefer? Chedi 1 Chedi 2 Chedi 3 Chedi 4 Chedi 5 Chedi 6 As time goes by we can add additional ashes from more GT Riders, who have ridden the North & contributed to GTR. Anyone who wishes to assist with the cost of building the chedi - 1.8 metres high - is welcome to contribute.
