Nor­wood road crew

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community Life -

a 400-KILo­Me­TRe Is­rael Bike Ride raised £30,000 for nor­wood’s ser­vices for chil­dren, fam­i­lies and adults with learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties.

The week-long route took the 12 cy­clists through na­hariya, the Golan and Galil to a fin­ish in haifa.

as with all of nor­wood’s in­ter­na­tional bike rides, adults with learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties who are sup­ported by the char­ity took part, rid­ing on the back of tan­dem bikes.

one was Ravenswood Vil­lage res­i­dent stephen Treis­man, who said: “I like go­ing cycling, and I do lots of it ev­ery week. I en­joy go­ing to other coun­tries with the other bike rid­ers.”

This year’s se­ries of nor­wood chal­lenges ends with a south african bike ride. head of chal­lenges Ian Tate pointed out that nor­wood pi­o­neered the char­ity bike ride con­cept in 1992 with a trip to Is­rael. six­teen years later, the event is still go­ing strong.

“next year’s chal­lenges in­clude par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Lon­don Marathon or a water­side walk in as­cot. If you pre­fer to get on your bike, you could take part in in­ter­na­tional rides in In­dia, and Is­rael.”
