Ride for Missions supports the work of Rosedale Mennonite Missions, helping send workers around the world where few people have heard the good news about Jesus.
As the ride has grown over the past eight years, it has become a vital part of RMM’s funding. Eighteen cyclists took part in the first Ride for Missions, and last year 63 riders raised more than $118,000! That makes up almost 5% of our entire annual budget in one event! Since its inception, the ride has raised more than $500,000. We’re grateful that people who are passionate about missions and about cycling have found a way to combine those interests in such a fruitful way.
This summer, from July 26-30, we invite you to join the 9th annual Ride for Missions, departing from Ashtabula, Ohio and ending in Castorland, New York (roughly 384 miles). Come enjoy the camaraderie and fellowship with other cyclists as you meet a challenge together in support of missions. Anyone can be part of the ride, regardless of physical condition or interest in cycling (those who don’t take part themselves can still support riders and spread the word about the event).
There is no registration fee for the ride itself, but cyclists are asked to raise financial support from sponsors ($100 minimum). Lunches are provided. Other meals will be at the rider’s expense. Depending on the level of corporate sponsorship, lodging expenses may be subsidized to help riders with cost.
You must register by June 25, 2014 to participate.
Bring all pledge sheets to the ride kickoff.
