On June 1, young cyclists from around the world embarked on a 3,000 mile journey to raise awareness for and rescue five orphans in China targeted for persecution, simply for following the spiritual practice of Falun Gong.
They are rallying their way across the country, meeting with supporters at every stop. Started in Los Angeles, they are riding over 3,000 miles in 45 days and pass through 19 cities before reaching Washington D.C. for a special hurrah with national leaders. From there, the team will travel to New York City to address the UN General Assembly.
