Pedalling for Palestine

Leeds to Brighton, 3rd - 6th June, 2024

Leeds to Brighton route

For the last three years, I have done a cycle ride over a four or five days in the summer, covering about 250 miles. On two out of the three, I have been raising money for various causes. This year, I'm planning to ride the 301 miles from Leeds to Brighton in June. I hadn't intended to do any fundraising, but the current crisis in Palestine compels me to change my plans; I will therefore be riding to raise money for Medical Aid for Palestinians.

Medical Aid for Palestinians - Delivering health and medical care

MAP's vision is a future where all Palestinians can access an effective, sustainable and locally-led system of healthcare, and the full realisation of their rights to health and dignity.

Through our programmes in the West Bank, Gaza, East Jerusalem, and Lebanon, we work with trusted and experienced local partners to achieve this vision... In times of humanitarian emergency, we are ready to respond rapidly with aid and assistance.

MAP is also committed to bearing witness to the injustices caused by occupation, displacement and conflict.

The Bike

This year I'll be riding a bike based on an ancient hand-built frame given to me by a clubmate in 1963! It now has posh wheels - Campag ! - and modern transmission.

You can see many more bike details here!

The Route

I will be riding from home in Leeds to Brighton over five days - the route is 301 miles. I'll be staying in B&B's or with family, and without needing to carry camping equipment and riding a much lighter machine, I am hoping to be able to avoid 13 hour days like last year!
