Sat July 20: Big Ride for Palestine

July 20

CWDF member group Chester Friends of Palestine are supporting a regional cycling event, the Big Ride for Palestine, and have asked CWDF to give our support by circulating information about the event.  Full details can be found in the messages below.

The Big Ride for Palestine started 9 years ago in response to the devastating loss of children’s lives already happening in Gaza in 2015. Riding is a great way to show your solidarity for Palestinians. This year The Big Ride is going Regional. I’m contacting you as a member of the organising group for our Region. The ride will be in Liverpool on Saturday July 20th and we are busy getting the route sorted and planning a really good day for cyclists and supporters. At present it’s looking to be about 26 miles through city parks, a cycle way, some quiet roads and some busy roads where we can make an impact. There are opportunities to do a shorter ride by hopping on a Merseyrail train partway. There’ll be a rally at the beginning from 10am at the Pier Head and a fund raising social event with food from about 5 in Liverpool 8 – we’re working on this now.

We’re very much hoping that there’ll be riders from across the region, and also volunteers for marshalling on the ride, providing support vehicles, mechanical and first aid, help with rider registration, support at the break stops, support with the evening event, food, offers of accommodation for those from afar, and generally to help raise awareness of the ride and get riders. Email janesbigride@gmail.com to let us know how you want to be involved, with a tel. no. and email address and we’ll put you on our supporters list. Any queries do please ask. We look forward to meeting lots of riders and supporters from all over the Region.
