About

Hello there! I've always been really passionate about cycling, as I'm sure most of you know, but something that affects me even more is the inequality that exists within society. The very idea that some people don't have a home or a place to live and belong is an atrocity in this day and age, and something that deeply saddens me. Even more so is the lack of help and assistance available to people, something this ride aims to bring.

This is a ride supporting a community centre in Greece, which offers assistance to refugees arriving in Athens, offering food, clothes, legal advice and classes to people who have been displaced from their homes. 

It is a real chance to make a difference, and support people helping others in a way I would like to one day.

London to Athens 2018

A group of not-so-serious cyclists have set themselves the serious challenge of cycling between London and Athens. The ride is a relay-style challenge, with each participant taking on a week or two of the overall trip.

We are fundraising for Khora; a grassroots, proactive association running a community centre in Athens. Their centre provides basic and human needs for people without freedom of movement. This includes free nutritious food, clothing, education, access to information and a safe space to build relationships and relax.

Equally important to what they offer, is how they offer it. Khora is run by volunteers from all over the world. Its team includes members of the local Greek community, the refugee community and other international volunteers too. It prioritises dignity and respect in every service it provides.

The £60,000 we are aiming to raise will pay for the rent for their community centre for an entire year. The running costs of a project are typically the hardest to find funding for, so it of particular importance to be able to provide this for Khora, to secure a stable future for the project. All fund-raised money goes to Khora, and none on the ride.
