Do you love Biking? (or supporting the event)?
Does the problem of poverty frustrate you?
Do you want to make a difference in your community?
What is Cycle of Service? It is an intense but fun 3 day bike ride across the state to raise awareness about poverty housing in Alabama and raise money for home repair in Lee, Macon, and Sumter counties. Is this important? In counties such as Macon and Sumter, over 35% of the population struggles with poverty. 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. But on a limited or fixed income these problems get bigger and bigger. 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 bike with us!
So what will we do? On Thursday May 2nd, riders riding across the state will meet in Livingston at the Southern Sportsman Hunting Lodge which is where we will launch our ride.
