Ride for Missions supports the work of Rosedale Mennonite Missions, helping send workers to parts of the world where few people have heard the good news about Jesus. Over the past ten years, RFM has become a vital part of RMM’s funding.
In 2015, 97 riders rode over 350 miles from Middlebury, Indiana to Hartville, Ohio and raised $160,000. They were accompanied by 20 support and gear volunteers. All of these totals are records for Ride for Missions. We are so grateful for all of you who were involved! This event is only possible because of the time and efforts of a significant number of people. For everyone who played a part in this year’s ride, we are so blessed by all that you have done. Thank you!
Whether you’re a returning rider or a newcomer, we invite you to join us for the 11th annual ride from July 30 to August 3, 2016 ending in Greenwood, Delaware. Come enjoy camaraderie and fellowship with other cyclists as you conquer 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 ride can be support volunteers, support riders financially, and spread the word about Ride for Missions).
While the 2016 route isn’t yet finalized, RFM coordinator Wayne Yoder is looking to include some shore towns in the Delmarva region (Delaware, Maryland and Virginia). It’s already looking like a ride you won’t want to miss. Look for updates to be posted on this page in early 2016.
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.
