Ellen Logan is one of the directors and main organisers of The Big Ride for Palestine. This annual cycle protest involves hundreds of riders cycling across parts of the UK to raise awareness of Palestine rights.
Initiated in 2015 by activists who wanted to combine their love of cycling with Palestine solidarity, The Big Ride has grown exponentially year on year, attracting people of all ages, ethnicities, religions, backgrounds and nationalities.
Ellen has been campaigning on issues in Palestine since 2015, following three months of living and working in Ramallah and Birzeit.
