The Tour...

Ends Cycling is inviting Cyclists & Support Staff to our 8th-annual Key West Bike Ride!  Come experience sunny, South Florida with us.  It's a sight to behold!  God's beauty is on display as we traverse 300-miles together, across the Everglades, down Route 1 South, through the beautiful Florida Keys.  The route is almost all flat, with the exception of 47 bridges, one of which is 7-miles long!  Experience special treats like Key Lime Pie and fun activities like feeding the tarpon at Robbie's Marina.  Optional excursions such as air boat rides are a blast for first-timers on the Key West Bike Ride!  We couldn't possibly invite you on this tour without mentioning the amazing hospitality of our host-churches!  On this tour, you'll have the opportunity to make new friends, cycle through God's beautiful creation, and change the world for youth in Thailand! 

Thursday morning, we'll give you a ride back to Homestead or Ft. Myers at 6am or 8am.

Got questions? Please email our 5-day KWBR2019 Ride Director, Matt Miller at MMiller@EndsCycling.com.

For The Youth Of:

Thailand

The Reason We Ride...

Thailand has a population of 68 million people, an estimated 98% of whom don’t walk in relationship with Jesus.  As Prosperous Youth Foundation (PYF), we work in Chiang Mai, which is the second largest city in Thailand.    Many youth come from villages in the mountains, without access to education, so they move into the city for a better education while their parents stay back in their villages maintaining their homes and

farms.  Other youth who have been orphaned or abandoned also end living in institutional care. PYF is working to help create a network among these youth homes, and is currently connected with close to 70 youth homes. PYF partners with them by training youth workers, supporting the staff, discipling and doing leadership development with youth. In supporting these homes, the youth can be introduced to Christ and mentored, while they pursue a better education. One key tool in that effort is an annual youth camp (launched with funds and support of the 2014 KWBR) PYF hosts every October school break. More than 400 youth from nearly 40 youth homes come together to worship, some experiencing Christ for the first time and others making commitments to pursue ministry. Our hope is to use the prayers and funds that you raise from this tour to fully invest in the expenses of future camps, create a structure that makes PYF sustainable long-term and to help scale our other projects transforming the lives of youth.

How Are Your Cycling Groups Organized?

An experienced Team Leader will lead a team of 4-10 cyclists throughout the multi-day event. Riders will be grouped depending on their strengths and preferences. You are welcome to choose which group you wish to be in ahead of time. (If you're not sure you can do it, get a cycling computer and see where you are at!) A suggested 10 week training schedule is available to you in our tour handbooks. 

It’s our recommendation no one changes groups unless absolutely necessary. We would love for you to grow deep relationships with people in your group.

Paceline - 18+ mph average

Journey Lovers Plus - 16-17 mph average

Journey Lovers - 14-15 mph average

SEE Train - 13-14 mph average

D Group (trikes, etc) - 11mph average (will likely not finish all miles each day)

 

PLEASE NOTE"Average" means over the course of a 60-80 mile day, the actual pedaling speed that your computer will read at the end of your ride. This means you will at times, be riding at 2-4 M.P.H. above your actual "average" for the day.  These averages will change on international tours.
