Be a part of our Edinburgh local supporter group's biggest event yet, a mass-participation Cycle Against Torture, from East Sussex to Edinburgh throughout July 2019.

Whether you are a keen and advanced cyclist or just want the opportunity to participate in an exciting event to raise money for survivors of torture, Cycle Against Torture welcomes everyone no matter what distance you wish to cover. This may mean just riding through your village, it is completely up to you!

It is a relay-style cycle ride, with different people making up different parts of the journey. The aim is to ride between 20 and 60 miles per day with rest days and activities inbetween. Warning- activities will involve lots of tea and lots of cake.

The objectives for this event are threefold:

1) raising awareness of the work of Freedom from Torture

2) connecting local support groups

3) raising much-needed funds for this work

You can get involved by being a cyclist yourself, offering accomodation for cyclists passing through your area or just by cheering them on with a nice cup of tea and getting involved in rest days and Local Group activities.

To help raise money for the event you can set up your own JustGiving page as a member of the team or donate to one of the existing members:

 If you do chose to cycle, you can create your own individual team member page within the Cycle Against Torture's overall page, meaning people can sponsor your personal contribution to a larger cause.
