Cycling to Syria
In aid of Unicef's Children of Syria Emergency Appeal, a group of cyclists is cycling the 3,284.5 miles from Edinburgh to Syria at the east end of Princes Street over two days. I encountered them cheerfully setting up yesterday morning on my way to work. By the time I passed then again on the homeward journey after 6pm they were into the grimly determined phase. From the map below they seemed to be on the German border, judging by the white dot.
Their fundraising page is here, if you're moved to donate.
