    A team of 29 Muslim riders cycled almost 400 miles over three days from Sofia to Plovdiv and Istanbul, raising £115,000 to build new homes for refugees.

    The money, raised by members of the London-based Hope and Knowledge (H&K) Cycle Club, will be used to build over 75 permanent 3-bedroom homes for Syrian families living in the refugee camps.

    “There’s always people in need out there, especially in the Muslim world,” Shamsul Abdin, the club’s head, told Anadolu Agency.

    “So, we decided to use something we enjoy, which is cycling, and to give something back to humanity. And it worked out brilliantly,” he added.

    The Hope and Knowledge Cycle Club was established in London 10 years ago.

    “The club started ten years ago with a group of brothers. Just six or seven people who just wanted to do something for charity and enjoy cycling as well,” Abdin added.
