Bike for Peace

News in Brief by PN staff

On 27 February, Bike for Peace launched its 2019 ride from Westminster Hall in the houses of parliament, London.

The tour will go onto France, India, China, Australia, New Zealand and the US. It will promote the need for a nuclear-weapons-free world, the value of cycling as a mode of transport, and the importance of the UN for nuclear disarmament.

A Norwegian group, Bike for Peace was established in 1978 by Tore Naerland, a 90 percent blind peace campaigner who rides on a tandem bike.

Tore spoke at the London launch alongside Caroline Lucas MP, Sean Morris of Nuclear-Free Local Authorities and Mayors for Peace.
