What is RideToFreedom? RideToFreedom is a company, soon to be 501(c)3 non-profit organization, raising awareness about the persecution through different ways than the past. In 2015, the team of 26 young Dafa disciples representing 15 different countries biked across America to let the world know about the violation of human rights and the persecution of Falun Gong children in China. These Dafa disciples clarified the truth using modern means to a modern human society, through social media, a “selfie” campaign, composing and singing a song, holding a concert with Truth on Tour, and reaching out to President Obama. Through these new and creative ideas, by the end of their journey, they gained 34 support letters, over 212 media reports, and over 1,280 “selfies” of support.
RideToFreedom Europe For 2016, RideToFreedom aims to have an international team of 30 young Dafa disciples, ages 15-20 years old, biking across Europe to continue to clarify the truth in different approaches. This upcoming year, there are plans to bike through the Chunnel, hold a live web or TV streaming of the bike journey, create a virtual candle light vigil, have ordinary people bike with RideToFreedom, and develop a RideToFreedom phone or tablet app. The Europe bike tour will officially begin on July 1st, 2016, and the team will be stopping in London, United Kingdom; Brussels,Belgium; Maastricht, Netherlands; Koln, Germany; Luxembourg, Luxembourg; Paris, France; Bern, Switzerland; Monaco, Monaco; Milan, Italy; Vaduz, Lichtenstein; Munchen, Germany; Vienna, Austria; Bratislava, Slovakia; Budapest, Hungary; Prague, Czech republic; Berlin, Germany. From Berlin the team will travel by vehicle through Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia to arrive in Russia ending the trip on August 30th, 2016.
The entire bike journey will be a total of about 6,000 kilometers or 3700 miles split between approximately 6 teams .
What are RideToFreedom’s goals? Internally, RideToFreedom’s purpose is to clarify the truth and save sentient beings.
