780 kilometers, 7 days, 11 cities… do you dare to join us? #Ride4Rights

When we welcomed the eleventh Dutch Shelter City to our network in December 2017, one of the first supporters of our programme reacted: “Wow, eleven cities. I feel an ‘Elfstedentocht’ is coming up!” 

In response to this challenge, and to celebrate the success of the Shelter City Network and the role the 11 Dutch Shelter Cities play in supporting human rights defenders, we cycled 850 km across all 11 Shelter Cities in just 7 days from May 14-20. Through this bike challenge, we wanted to raise a total of €25,000. The money raised directly goes to security training for human rights defenders.

The contributions directly support the protection of human rights defenders. Because without them there are no human rights. Together with you, #Ride4Rights
