Back by popular demand, Ends of the Earth Cycling invites you to #PrayPedalRepeat wherever you are in the world. This Break Every Chain 2021 ride (#BreakEveryChain2021) is our response to the COVID-19 crisis and an effort to see our community do what it does best - advocate for global youth. For this tour - you can ride indoors, ride on Zwift (or any online cycling platform), solo outdoors, or in a small group - as your city/state government allows. Please be encouraged to take their advice & mandates seriously.
If you've ever been around us for any length of time, you've probably heard us say "It's not about the miles," and in this instance that remains true! Whether you pedal 5 miles a day or 50, whether you ride some of the 5 days and not others, it's totally fine with us. Use this time to pray, study the devotions alongside of us, advocate for the ministry and raise funds to help young people in Kenya be released from the chains poverty.
Each evening of the tour we'll be hosting a time of praise & worship together online at 7pm EST. You'll hear from 5 different worship leaders and 5 different pastors bringing you hope and encouragement from all around the USA! You'll be able to engage with other cyclists (and support staff members) from around the world who are also participating in Break Every Chain 2021. In addition to the impact you'll have, you can also earn incentives based on how much $ you raise!

For The Youth Of:
The Reason We Ride...
On this tour, you will be riding for the youth in Kenya, Africa. Here is a word from our beneficiary ministry there called, New International, Child Sponsorship.
There are thousands of families and children in rural Narok, Kenya, who are living in extreme poverty. Many of the children take on family responsibilities at a young age;
helping find and prepare meals and water, caring for livestock and gardens, and watching after younger children.
New International Child Sponsorship works to combat poverty one child and family at a time, but for this tour, we are focusing our efforts on Orphan and Vulnerable Children (OVC) camps. OVC camps are hosted by AfricaHope, a New International ministry, for the children in Narok during school holidays. For a week, a hundred children come to stay at AfricaHope’s campus. These camps offer an opportunity for the children to focus on being a child, having fun, and learning about Jesus! At the camps they can leave behind the worries and concerns of poverty they are faced with daily.
The children stay in AfricaHope’s dormitories where many have access to running water for the first time and delicious meals are prepared for them. The camp is centered around teachings from the Bible and incorporates dance, skits, music, and crafts into those lessons and small groups for discussion and prayer. Health and hygiene lessons are another pillar of the OVC camps, demonstrating and explaining the importance of handwashing and clean water.
Orphan and Vulnerable Children camps are offered at no cost to the children’s families and rely on fundraising efforts to be able to host multiple camps each year. Which is where you come in. We want to use the prayers and funds raised from this tour to fund four OVC camps for 2022. Will you help us meet that goal and #PrayPedalRepeat for the children in Kenya?
Join us as we ride to spread love to children in Kenya!
