George's Sponsored Bike-and-Bus ride in Galilee

Fr George Guiver, from the Community of the Resurrection in Mirfield, is planning a sponsored Bike-ride in Galilee on Saturday the 24th February. During a pilgrimage to Israel, Fr George plans to ride around The Sea of Galilee in one day. The lake is approximately 53km in circumference, about 21km long, and 13km wide. After completing his bike ride, Fr George hopes to return to Jerusalem on the 26th of February, through the Palestinian territories on a sponsored bus journey. The bus is listed as an ‘armoured’ bus and the journey should take around 3 hours, travelling through Israel-controlled parts of the West Bank, Fr George plans to pray throughout the journey.
 
Fr George is hoping to raise sponsorship for the whole journey around Galilee and through the Palestinian territories, half of the proceeds to go to CR’s campaign for the future, and half to the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel, whose volunteers accompany vulnerable communities and individuals, giving voice to local groups working nonviolently for peace. They monitor and document human rights abuses and work to deter violence on both sides.
