Dear Cyclists of Ride to Freedom,

We want to take a moment to congratulate and recognize you for taking a stand for human rights by participating in this ride.

Perseverance and sacrifice pursuant to defending people’s basic freedoms, both here and abroad, is incredibly worth of recognition, and remains and important principle that defines what it means to be an American. Your ride is a testament to the values of democracy and freedom.

Your journey across the U.S. to raise awareness for the Falun Gong persecutions, and its orphans in China, is nothing short of extraordinary. We are proud to represent young people like you who get involved in this great democracy to make a difference.

We wish you all the best as you travel on to Washington D.C. and the U.N. Headquarters in New York City. Again, we thank you for desire to bring this issue to the attention of the world, and to help those who have suffered because of it.


Steve Stivers and Steve Chabot, Members of Congress
