Over 300 riders have now signed up for the Big Ride for Palestine
They Think It’s All Over?
Not quite, as you have until Wednesday 29 July to sign up for this year’s Big Solidarity Ride. We need to have a cut-off point so that we can spend the last few days doing any final linking-up of riders and other arrangements. We also need to make last-minute arrangements for the 330 riders who have signed up so far, and we suspect the numbers will surge to more than 350. That’s a fantastic total, so thank you so much for signing up, and for giving a powerful message of solidarity to Palestine.
We’re starting to get some good press coverage, as in THIS LINK. This sends really positive messages to our friends in the Middle East Children’s Alliance in Gaza and to the West Bank, so that people in Palestine can see that justice for Palestine matters to people all round the world.

A little more time to sign up for the Big Ride Challenge
Wednesday 29 July will be the cut-off point for signing up to the Big Solidarity Ride, but The Big Ride Challenge continues until 30 August. You can sign up for the 440-mile Big Ride Challenge right until the end of August. It’s not impossible for eight people to sign up on 30 August, and each do 55 miles, and collectively complete 440 miles. There are obviously easier ways of doing this, if you sign up sooner. SIGN UP today and join in a mass display of support all around the UK for Freedom, Justice and Equality for Palestine.
THE JOYS OF CYCLING!!!
This is going brilliantly well. A huge THANK YOU to the 386 supporters who have already made donations to the Middle East Children’s Alliance fundraising initiative, totalling over £13,266. This has nearly doubled in the last week. That is incredible. An equally huge THANK YOU to the 52 people who have so far created their individual fund-raising pages. This works really well in getting friends and family members, unconnected to The Big Ride, donating too. You c an donate on our WEBSITE, or go direct to our Big Ride 2020 JustGiving page HERE.
Cycle Jerseys and T-shirts
We’ve had to order additional cycle jerseys and T-shirts. They are a great way of showing your support for Palestine and The Big Ride for Palestine before, during, and after the Big Ride events. They are also fantastic conversation openers and with over 800 people having ridden a Big Ride, the chances of connecting with another Big Rider by proudly wearing a top are increasing all the time. Visit our SHOP on our website to view and purchase a TBR cycle jersey or T-shirt.
Don’t delay – SIGN UP TODAY. The closing date for the Big Solidarity Ride will be Wednesday 29 July.
