Event description
In April 2010 a small group of people cycled 400km from the Karpasia in the east, to Akamas in the west. The small team was Aydin Mehmet Ali, a Turkish-speaking Cypriot, Andreas Michaelides, a Greek-speaking Cypriot and five friends of various nationalities, who all live in England.

For Cypriots and non Cypriots alike, this was a wonderful journey, cycling across some of the most beautiful countryside in the Mediterranean, swimming in the turquoise seas of Karpaz and Paphos, tasting the Cypriot authentic cuisine at its best and sharing a coffee or even a glass of wine with people they met on the way.

In April 2011 and 2015 they repeated the trip, this time coming across the border at the new crossing point at Limnitis. At all times the group were given a warm welcome by ordinary people; organisations in both north and south of the divide offered them hospitality; and this was the beginning of new friendships especially when the Limassol Cycling Club joined for a day.

This year this group is even happier to ride again under the support of the Cyclists Across Barriers and the Hackney Cypriot Association in London. It has always been our aspiration to encourage many more people living in Cyprus to break out and discover their country. This time we hope that more Cypriots will join our journey. Even though our beloved island is still divided we don’t have to wait to start breaking down our own barriers. We invite you to organise your own group or even come by yourself for the whole of the ten day-cycle journey or just for part of it, and meet us on route.

Event description
Zimem defteri borçluların borçlarının yazılı olduğu defter demektir. Osmanlı zenginleri, borçlarını ödeyemeyenlere yardımcı olurlardı. Bir de kendi isimlerinin bilinmemesini, gizli yapılmasını isterlerdi. Veremeyenleri tespit edip borçlarını öderlerdi. Durumu iyi olmayan fakirlerin de borçlarını öderlerdi. Eğer borcunu ödeyemeyen bulamazlarsa, borç defterini açıp rastgele bazılarının borçlarını öderlerdi. Bu olay, zimem defteri diye şöhret bulmuştur.

Eğer sizin de durumunuz müsaitse herhangi bir bakkala gidip, ona veresiye borcu olan ama ödemekte zorluk çeken veya ödeyemeyen bir müşterisini öğrenip onun borcunu kapatabilirsiniz. Bazı ihtiyaç sahipleri gerçekten mağdur olabiliyor.
