Why I donated my bike to people at Calais refugee camp

In cities around the world, the monthly bicycle event sees cyclists – from London to New York and Sydney – convene in a regular place, on the last Friday of the month, and ride the streets of their city in the safety and camaraderie of a group. With its mildly anarchic origins in the idea that cities should be designed around human beings rather than motor vehicles, and that those human beings have a right to free movement on the roads of their cities, perhaps I should not have been so surprised to learn London’s August ride would see bicycles taken from the capital to Calais, where they would be donated to people at the refugee camp known as the Jungle.

There is often a healthy tendency for scepticism where simple acts of charity are concerned, and so too a worry that donations can upset the local community and barter relations. Where bicycles and life in the refugee camp are concerned, however, the equation is quite simple. Calais migrants: life in the Jungle – video. LA VIDÉO DU JOUR : Images du quotidien à Calais.

Calais: Migrants frustrated at 'zero' crossings to Britain clash with police

About 250 riot police officers fired tear gas and water cannon to quell unrest near the so-called "jungle" encampment in the northern port. France's interior ministry said the confrontation was "calmer" than those of the previous two nights, when a total of 43 officers reported injuries from rocks and other objects hurled at them. The incidents came as frustrations were growing in the camps, currently housing a record 6,000 people, as tightened controls on access to the port and Eurotunnel have made it significantly harder for migrants to cross to Britain.

Inside the Jungle: Calais's refugee camp

On arrival, the town of Calais almost seemed bereft of local people, let alone refugees, and I couldn't begin to picture what the camp, known as The Jungle, was like. Our hostel was full of volunteers determined to make a difference, beaming with an infectious, almost party-like attitude. If they hadn't told me of the long hours spent in the warehouse or distributing aid to the desperate people of The Jungle, I may have mistaken them for care-free travellers, rather than the likes of paramedics, architects and nurses, putting aside their comfortable lives to help those in need.
