Cycling against Landmines - From Lake Geneva to The Dead Sea

StopMines.ch - From Lake Geneva to The Dead Sea, Armin Köhli's New Cycling Challenge


4800 Km by Bike across 13 Countries

The double amputee and exceptional cyclist
Armin Köhli takes on the challenge of a 4800 km
bike tour across Europe and the Middle East.

He will leave from Geneva at the beginning
of October and arrive in Jordan on November 18th,
where the 8th Meeting of State Parties to the Ottawa
Convention against land mines is due to take place.

By accomplishing this feat, Armin Köhli hopes
to raise public and media awareness of the fight
against the scourge of land mines, which causes
15'000 victims every year worldwide, including
a great many children. To this end, events are being
planned along the course to allow Armin Köhli to meet
young people, mine victims and political and media
representatives in different countries.

The project is timed to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the Ottawa Treaty banning the use, production and transfer of landmines.

I know this isn't a good time--you're down with yet another virus. I do hope you feel better soon--really, I do--but I, too, have to move on with my life. Fact is, in the entire time I've known you, you seem to always have a virus or an occasional worm. You should really see a doctor. That said, I just can't continue with this relationship any longer. I know you say you'll fix things, that next time it'll go better--but that's what you said the last time--and the time before that. Each time I believed you. Well, not any longer. You cheater! The truth is there's nothing more you can say to make things better. I know about your secret marriage to patent. You say you two are not seeing each other anymore, but I just don't believe it. You say you can live without patent, and I've heard that
