Big Ride

 

Gaza is tiny
Gaza is tiny

This is the borders of Gaza superimposed on a map of South Yorkshire.  Imagine that you are confined to this tiny area that even David Cameron has called a Prison Camp.  On top of that Palestinians suffer economic and military attacks by Israel.

Two days ago I cycled to Edale and back.  This sort of trip is impossible for Gazans.

The Big ride from Edinburgh to London is to raise money for a children’s charity in Gaza and raise solidarity as well.  For me it shows how free we are in comparison.

That is one of the reasons that I have signed up for the Edinburgh to Sheffield part of the ride.
