A group of almost 200 women from 30 countries has started its third bike ride for peace in the Middle East. Members of Follow The Woman started their cycling journey in Syria and are now in Lebanon. Their next stops will include Jordan and the Palestinian territories.

The women, who came from Arab countries, the European Union, the United States, Canada, Australia, and South America, want to show their support for Middle East peace and raise money for projects on issues such as human rights, gender issues, and youth.

Their goal is to have a greater understanding of the realities on the ground, so as to return to their homelands and share their experiences via awareness campaigns, as well as to be able to exert pressure on their local authorities regarding the issue of peace, wrote the Middle East Times.

So follow the woman - literally and figuratively. Their finishing line could be the ever-elusive Mid East peace.
