MECA’s first ever solidarity ride in July was inspired by Palestine solidarity activists in the UK who started The Big Ride for Palestine in 2015 following a horrific seven-week assault on Gaza. Every year, hundreds of people ride through dozens of UK towns in solidarity with Palestine while raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for MECA’s recreation projects and playgrounds. The 2022 Big Ride for Palestine this year brought 300 riders and raised (so far) $47,000.

On the beautiful morning of Sunday, July 17, 2022, 93 people of all ages joined MECA’s First Annual Ride for Palestine. They rode along the beautiful San Francisco Bay Trail demonstrating their solidarity with the Palestinian people.
