Why Ride for Peace?
Over 84 million people are currently displaced worldwide as a result of persecution, conflict and human rights abuses. Last year a person fled almost every second - and that was before Ukraine. We're all human, yet around the world we see minority groups being discriminated, demonised, dehumanised, their rights eroded – paving the way to mass atrocities. This isn't a new story. It's predictable. It's also preventable.
Rights for Peace focuses on upholding people's rights to transitional justice and countering identity-based violence in countries where divisions are fuelling atrocities.
Join us and help prevent violence.
Your support will help counter identity-based discrimination and conflict recurring in Sudan and South Sudan. A suggested fundraising target is £150, which will train 5 community leaders to counter hate speech and incitement to violence. There is no minimum but to cover costs we ask for a contribution of £25 though JustGiving (or directly to our account via BACS).
The Fab 50K (50km): Start time 11AM. You can view last year's route on Komoot!
The Hilly 100K (100km): Start time 10AM. You can view last year's route on Komoot!
If there is enough interest, we will introduce 25km and 75km routes as well.
Please specify which route you would like to cycle when signing up!
