Since June 1st, 25 teens from 14 countries came together to bike 3,000 miles across the USA for the cause of freedom of belief. They plan to rescue 5 orphans, who are in danger of being persecuted because of their spiritual belief known as Falun Dafa.
Falun Dafa is a meditation practice that concentrates on the principles of truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance. The people who practice Falun Dafa try to improve themselves and use those principles to conduct themselves in life. This practice has been persecuted since 1999, now people are tortured, killed, and subjected to live organ harvesting.
These young cyclists all practice Falun Dafa, and they know very well that it is not a crime. Their age range is from 11-25 years of age. Through this journey, they will be cycling through the Mojave Desert, the Rocky Mountains, bad weather, and all other kinds of situations. Some of these teens have never ridden a bike before, yet their hearts believe in the freedom of belief for the whole world.
