Zoe and Tim’s bike adventure #bikeswithoutbarriers

Cycling enthusiasts and BBP fans, Zoe and Tim, are heading out on an adventure! Yesterday they set off on an epic trip from the Hook of Holland to Istanbul, raising money for the Project! Read their story…

We are setting off on an overland adventure to Istanbul. Taking the ferry to the Hook of Holland on 3 May we will be cycling through Europe to the closest border of Asia. We are packing light (leaving friends horrified by the lack of pants we are taking) with the aim to cycle and camp for 10 weeks as much of the way as we are able.

This has been a dream for a long time that we were never sure whether we’d actually be able to do but with some luck, rash decisions and spreadsheet planning we are making it happen!

Whilst this is a dream of ours we also want to use the opportunity to help The Bristol Bike Project with their work in the community by raising awareness and hopefully some money too. A large portion of our route follows a similar trail to that taken by refugees crossing Europe. BBP works with refugees and other marginalised people in the community with their Earn-a-Bike scheme.

If you’d like to support our big adventure by donating to The Bristol Bike Project you can donate on our fundraising page¬†and follow our journey on instagram – @zoeandtim #bikeswithoutbarriers #zoeandtimgogogo
