Your participation in the RIDE is a way to stand up for those whose lives are deeply and often permanently affected by forces and events they can’t control, or who are exploited by the greedy and powerful who care nothing for human suffering.
Since 2004, we've cycled or walked in support of the charities we're fundraising for. And, normally we all gathered together in locations near us to do it. But this year, for obvious reasons, we can't.
Covid-related health risks and operational challenges won't permit us to assemble in large groups. So instead, we will gather together as always, but self-organize in smaller covid-friendly teams or groups as permitted.
Here's the good news: there's so many more ways to RIDE this year. You can register your team, gather your friends, and select one of 15 RIDE Freestyle fundraising activities. You can do the same thing all together, or mix and match within your team. Do what you can, wherever you can. #nobikesrequired
Can you still ride your bike or walk? Yes, of course! Still, it might be fun to try something different - take a look at the RIDE Freestyle choices and imagine what else you could do. You might find a new way to express your passion... for Refuge.
