Bike for Peace starting their 2019 World Tour in London
In honor of this day, we’re featuring the work of Bike for Peace. This Norwegian based organisation has worked for 40 years for peace, the environment and nuclear disarmament. They do this through organising friendship rides, which have taken place in more than 104 countries and covered 11,470 km.
During their tours Bike for Peace has met many well-known political, religious and cultural leaders and they have received a number of awards for their work including the Gandhi Foundation International Peace Award in 2015 in London and eight nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Right now they are on the New Zealand leg of their 2019 World Tour that began in London and took in China, Australia, New Zealand, and heads to Hawaii, and the USA before returning to Norway.
Global Coordinator, Tore Nærland, may be 95% blind but this has not stopped him whether on the bike or meeting world leaders to bring attention to issues fundamental to the global peace and harmony.
