Mopeds For Peace
Moped for peace is a nonprofit project that raises money for charity. In 2012 we support humanitarian development in Afghanistan.
CoreFiles AB is the main sponsor of Mopeds for Peace.
Mopeds For Peace will be a fantastic ride across the beautiful Russian countryside, through the deserts of Kazakhstan, to the sites of the silk road in Uzbekistan and the beautiful Blue Mosque in Mazar e Sharif, Afghanistan.

The planned route is:
Sankt Petersburg – Tikhvin – Cherepovets – Jaroslavl – Nizjnij Novgorod – Ulyanovsk – Samara – Uralsk – Kobda – Karabutak – Aralsk – Kyzylorda – Turkestan – Tashkent – Samarkand – Termez – Mazar e Sharif.
A tribute to my dad – Leif Kihlsten
My dad was a Swedish army officer and Russia specialist. He loved Russia and as an engineer he also loved bridges. So this is for him; -The Bridge Across Volga.
How it started
In the summer of 2011, I participated in ”The Mongol Rally” where I drove an ambulance from Sweden to Mongolia. I thought that the combination of Adventure and charity was so good that I wanted to organize something by myself.
On my way to Mongolia in 2011, I visited the Swedish / Finnish forces in Afghanistan and handed over money and toys.
