Virtual Unesco RILA Ride
event date: 27/05/2020
The annual Refugee Cycle has moved online for 2020
Two months into lockdown, with still no clear end date in sight, the UNESCO RILA team, in collaboration with Sustrans and Bike for Good, have created an online version of their popular annual Refugee Cycle, called the RILA Ride 2020.
The game can be played entirely online, but if you have a bicycle and would like to use it, you are more than welcome to follow the route and progress through the game at the various checkpoints during your ride. Maps are provided throughout the game, to keep you on track.
Participation is entirely free, the only thing you need is a smartphone and an internet connection. If you’re reading this on your phone, you can click this link to be taken to the game directly.
If you’ve ever been on the actual Refugee Cycle, you’ll recognise a lot of the elements. However, because of the online format, the team has to make a few changes.
Doing an online version of a live event may sound like a weak substitute, but the online environment also provided the opportunity to add in some nice touches that would have been impossible during the live event.
