30 Oct Courage In Motion Bike Ride 2016
On October 30th 2016, 110 Beit Halochem supporters took part in an annual five-day charity bicycle ride, from Jerusalem to Eilat in aid of Beit Halochem. The majority of the athletic visitors hailed from Canada under the aegis of the Toronto-based Beit Halochem. The able-bodied tourists rode alongside Israeli cyclists, many of whom were unable to use regular bikes instead using hand-operated models or recumbents. This was the ninth edition of the annual event. British participant, Spencer Miller, took part in this year’s ride. He commented: “This was my first ever cycle trip. It was an incredible experience, I found it to be extremely well organised, and cycling alongside disabled veterans in Israel was inspirational. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone!” Photo credit Idan Peled.
