A Ride for Unique Times.
In response to COVID-19, we are inviting individuals, families, friends, and communities (as local guidelines permit) to plan a one-day ride for July 25th, to raise support for missions. Wherever you are across the country – or even overseas – we invite you to unite with other cyclists in supporting RI as we take the good news of Jesus to the least-reached of our world.
Everyone can join.
If age, distance, training, or time commitments kept you from participating in past rides, this year is for you. You and your group can craft a course that fits your pace and interests. Pick a favorite route, plot out a fresh challenge, or explore new locations. While we are planning just one day to connect for this cause, you can, of course, choose a longer adventure if you would like.
Set a Goal. Be Creative.
There will be several physical and creative contests that riders can participate in. Prizes will be awarded for the most miles traveled, highest elevation gain, and longest ride duration. We will also have rewards for the youngest and oldest rider/group, and a special category for the most unique route (maybe your day has a theme, your route draws a picture, or you stop for the most ice cream).
One of the key components of RFM is the camaraderie. The miles we have pedaled together have bonded us in friendship, and we don’t want that to change this year. So, we will be hosting an online celebration the evening of the event where riders can log on to share stories of their day, connect with each other, and also determine the winners of our contests.
Ride for Missions started as an annual summer fundraiser in 2006, and over the past 14 years, it has gained momentum and participation, raising almost $1.3 million. The riders, volunteers, and supporting funds have been a huge blessing to the work of Rosedale International – helping us prepare, train, and send workers to locations around the world.
As we approach the 15th year of RFM, we believe this is not a time to shrink back. We see it as a time to get involved and make an impact in the world where the missional opportunities around us are greater than ever!
