Bike Ride 2014

The January 2014 New Hope India Bike Ride 2014 was enjoyed by everyone. The children at New Hope were amazed at how well all the Uncles and Aunties rode the 21 Speed gear bikes.

The Bike Ride 2014 was a success. It is difficult to describe the incredibly different places they went to the majority of people that never seen. Imagine the first day of the ride started with a train trip into the hills through tunnels and over the X bridges. The visitors and the accompanying children have covered 22 Kilometers down to the overnight stop.

On the last day everyone had lunch 800 Kilometers by Cycles and Train from where they started with 142 cured leprosy patients and their children. The volunteer time saw buildings painted and the children`s delight drawings on walls.
