Cycle Against Torture, Edinburgh, 26 June 2019Add to Lightbox Download
Freedom from Torture supporters are taking on a mammoth cycle ride across Britain in aid of torture survivors who have been forced to flee their home country and are rebuilding their lives in the UK.
The ride, beginning in Hastings on the 1 July and finishing in Edinburgh on 28 July, is broken down into 19 stages; Moira Dunworth, aged 65, and Shelagh King, a semi-retired doctor aged 64, are riding the whole way and other participants have signed up to some of the stages. Supporters across the country who are riding include Violet Hejazi, a young Syrian refugee who learnt to ride a bike specifically to take part in ‘Cycle against Torture 2019’.
