Here We Ride 2020 – Start & Finish from You Home!
WHAT IS HERE WE RIDE? Here We Ride is a FREE Bike-riding event that will be held on Saturday and Sunday, August 1-2, 2020 to complement and celebrate the efforts of “The Reformation 500” exercise portion of the Here We Stand campaign. Because of social distancing and limited gatherings, you can join Here We Ride right at home on your local trails and in your neighborhoods.
HOW DOES HERE WE RIDE WORK?
- Starting and finishing at your home, you and your family are encouraged to ride the distance you chose in your neighborhood or on local trails.
- Prior to the event, set your goal for miles you (and your family) will complete and collect pledges for the miles you will ride; 50% of the money raised will go to the ministry of your choice (church/school/other) and the remaining 50% to the Here We Stand campaign initiatives.
- We ask that all participants register online so we can track participation.
- Share this flyer or this video by Rev. Chris Garcia, chair of Here We Ride, with family and friends so that they can get involved too!
