The Tour...

Five states, five days, and five unique experiences. While the route is flat, windy, and hot, it includes gorgeous views for miles, starry skies, lakes and livestock, and wide-open spaces. Join us on this multi-state adventure, complete with hospitable host churches, small-town communities, authentic barbecue, and New Mexico flair (did someone say green chiles?).  

 

Ever ride in five states in five days? On this tour, we’ve got flatlands (Rita Blanca Grasslands to be specific), mountains, canyons, and even dinosaurs! This low-traffic, desolate tour is rich in history, relatively low in elevation, and filled with authentic food. 

5-Day

300 miles

TX, NM, OK, CO, KS

Day 1 takes us through Palo Duro Canyon, the second-largest canyon in the U.S. We’ll ride the switchbacks into the valley, see the multi-colored rock face of the canyon, and tackle the climb back out. 

 

Though we’ll still be in Texas, day two will finish in Dalhart, with a Braum’s Ice Cream option at lunch-time. A 92 mile day, cyclists will have the option to ride eight miles around town to earn their Ends Cycling Centurion patches. 

 

On day three, we’ll start to see some mountains as we make our way toward Clayon, New Mexico. In addition to engaging with a welcoming host community, we will take a journey to the mountains to see dinosaur tracks overlooking a stunning lake scene. First Baptist Church is especially excited to host us!

 

Day four takes us from Dinosaur Land, New Mexico, to Boise City Oklahoma. After riding through more flatlands and grasslands, each team will have the option to take an eighteen-mile rolling trek to the Colorado state line, hitting the fourth state of the tour. 

 

For our final day, we’ll take a short forty-five-mile ride to the finish line in Elkhart, Kansas, the fifth and final state of the Five Corners Bike Ride. We’ll have debrief, dinner, and worship, before exploring the vast expanse that features the Sante Fe Trail, journeyed by thousands of travelers in the 1800s.

For The Youth Of:

Romania

The Reason We Ride...

On this tour, you will be riding for the youth in Egypt. Our beneficiary ministry there is called Missio International. Here is a word from them:

Even though the Romanian Revolution was in December 1989, the effects of Communism can still be seen today in the rural areas of Romania. With these socio-

economic conditions, Romania is second in the top countries-of-origin (the country where a trafficked person came from before being trafficked) for victims of human trafficking in the EU, with our service area being the highest in Romania.  

Those who live in rural or marginalized areas and those with little-to-no education are the most susceptible to fall into the hands of traffickers. Our Children-At-Risk programs currently serve over 750 marginalized children annually, meeting the spiritual and material needs of the neediest of all - the at risk children and youth.

 

Through our programs and services we want to be the hands and feet of Jesus to end the cycle of child abuse, exploitation, illiteracy, and poverty, in order for them to have a better life and a brighter future.

 

By joining Ends Cycling on this tour, you will be raising prayers, awareness and funds to combat the injustices happening in Romania and spread the word about our need for short-term teams.  We are thankful that through joining this Ends Cycling tour, you are partnering with us to provide continuous prayers and support for these precious at-risk children in Jesus Name.

Children 12 and under are FREE (unless otherwise noted - example: a Super Family Friendly type tour with kid activities, events, that would have an additional cost, etc.).

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. 

It’s our recommendation no one changes groups unless absolutely necessary. The reason that we ride in groups is for your safety.  We would love for you to grow deep relationships with people in your group.

Break Away - 18+ mph average

Paceline - 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.
