In 2018, the State of Israel, the outcome of Theodor Herzl’s dream and initiative, is celebrating 70 years of existence. For marking this historical date, the Ride4Solidarity motorcycle community is organizing two comemorative rides:

– The R4S HERZL ride will take place in Europe. Starting on June 08 and ending on June 24, the ride is organized by the undersigned (Jozsef Horvath). R4S HERZL ride will follow the locations where Theodor Herzl, the founder of the Zionist Movement and the spiritual father of the State of Israel, lived the important moments of his life. At least 10 bikers, from different countries, will start the journey from the birthplace of Herzl in Budapest, riding to Vienna, Basel, Paris, Berlin and back to Budapest. Along the road we will honor the memory of Herzl, the dreamer who’s dream came true in 1948, 70 years ago, when the State of Israel became a nation among nations.

– The R4S USIL70 ride will happen in the United States of America. From October 13 to October 28, Christian and Jewish bikers will cross America, from Los Angeles to New York, also celebrating the establishment of the State of Israel, 70 years ago. Organized by Pastor Gary Burd from Mission M25 (USA), with the help of Alan Atkins (USA) and Maximillian Marco Katz (Romania), the founder of Ride4Solidarity, this ride will also mark 70 years of unbreakable friendship between the United States of America and the State of Israel.

In June 2017, a group of 14 bikers, Christians and Jews, from 6 countries rode together from London to Jerusalem in support of the State of Israel. Celebrating the constructing and often, the lives saving contribution of Israel to Humanity, celebrating 50 years since the Six Day War, celebrating the liberation and the unification of Jerusalem, in their long way, the bikers also honored the memory of the Holocaust and the Terrorism victims.

Continuing the 2017 R4S London to Jerusalem mission tradition, the R4S HERZL and the R4S USIL70 rides are dedicated to spreading the word about the miraculous existence and development of Israel, one of the World’s most advanced countries and certainly the only democracy in the Middle East.

The same as done in 2017, the R4S bikers, carrying a message of peace, call communities (Christian and Jewish), politicians, diplomats, bikers, anyone to support these extraordinary and unique rides. We need partners, we need friends and we need bikers to join our missions.

Who am I, the organizer of the R4S HERZL ride? I’m a civil engineer. I am a very happily married man, with two boys. The older one just celebrated his Bar Mitzvah. I am the former Chairman of Maccabi Hungary (1998 – 2010). Since 2011 I am the leader of the Bet Shalom Synagogue community (Rosh HaKehila), in Budapest, Hungary.
