Do you love Cycling?
Are you concerned for families living in poverty housing in Alabama?
Do you want to make a difference for Alabama families?

Then come cycle with a purpose!

What is Cycle of Service? It is an intense, fun 2 and a half day bike ride across the state to raise awareness about poverty housing in Alabama. The funds gained from cyclists’ sponsorships provide home repair assistance to families in Lee, Macon, and Sumter counties.

Is this important? In counties such as Macon and Sumter, over 35% of the population struggles with poverty. That is 1 out of 3 people and is mainly our elderly and children.

What does that mean for someone’s home? It means a leaking roof when it rains, an unsafe floor from dry rot, or maybe the need for a wheel chair ramp. With a limited income these problems only grow. Cycling with us helps us repair homes for these families and extend the love of Christ to them! You can be a part of the solution to ending the cycle of poverty in Alabama! Come join this fun team and cycle with us!

So if I ride? You join a team that is making a difference. You get to do what you love through cycling, get an incredible challenge of riding across the state, and you will be helping low income families receive home repair assistance.

What does it cost me? A $65 registration covers your meals and ARM items to include a t-shirt and water bottle.

Sponsorships? We have an easy, painless (you’ll get that while riding) way to get sponsors. You can register through Active.com and have a fundraising platform. You can also use Facebook to keep your contacts updated. Upon registering you’ll receive more detailed information our you can review all of it in the registration information page.
