RideToFreedom regretfully announces that its planned 2016 Tour Across Europe has had to be cancelled due to concerns for the safety of the young riders.
Many of the countries through which RideToFreedom intended to travel this summer are experiencing increasing amounts of political and social unrest and instability.
When planning for the 2016 tour began in 2015 Europe was much more peaceful. In the intervening year the situation has grown increasingly tense and volatile.
The vote on the Brexit in the U.K., riots at sporting events, the ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia, and anger directed at refugees and foreigners in general in many countries have created an unstable environment which make it difficult to ensure that RideToFreedom’s team of young international riders could have a safe and successful ride.
RideToFreedom is still working to rescue the children orphaned by the Chinese’ regime’s persecution of spiritual practices, and is planning other events to keep the orphans’ plight in the popular media while also planning next year’s ride.
RIDE TO FREEDOM - TO THE RESCUE!
Wednesday 29th June at 2pm, Parliament, London
Today millions of children are forced to become homeless orphans in China as a result of the Chinese Communist Party’s persecution campaign against Falun Gong, a traditional Buddha school practice.

A team of teens rode across the U.S. in an ongoing effort to raise the popular and political support needed to end the 17-year persecution of Falun Gong in China, and to rescue the homeless orphans this persecution creates daily.

The brave cyclists are part of Ride To Freedom, a global humanitarian organisation dedicated to rescuing children orphaned by the Chinese regime’s persecution of the peaceful meditation practice, Falun Gong.

The Chinese regime, which at first promoted Falun Gong, banned it in 1999 after it became too popular for the Party’s tastes; a government survey estimated that 70-100 million Chinese people had taken up the practice, which teaches the tenets of truthfulness, compassion and tolerance.

Since 1999, the Chinese Communist Party launched a brutal campaign to eradicate Falun Gong and tens of millions of Chinese citizens have been arrested; many have been tortured; tens of thousands have disappeared.

Some of our Chinese riders have experienced first-hand this terrible oppression, but have found safety in Western countries. They undertake these arduous journeys to let the world know of the situation in China to help those less fortunate.

The persecution of Falun Gong can be ended. The orphaned children can be rescued – but only with the awareness and support of concerned people everywhere.

RideToFreedom

On June 1, young cyclists from around the world embarked on a 3,000 mile journey to raise awareness for and rescue five orphans in China targeted for persecution, simply for following the spiritual practice of Falun Gong.They are rallied their way across the country, meeting with supporters at every stop. Started in Los Angeles, they rode over 3,000 miles in 45 days and passed through 19 cities before reaching Washington D.C. for a special hurrah with national leaders. From there, the team traveled to New York City and addressed the UN General Assembly.
