MEET THE CREW

Introducing, the Family...
Ends of the Earth Cycling is an active bicycling community impacting youth globally.  Like you, we understand how it feels to want to change the world.  So let’s ride bicycles to do it together!  We invite you to join us by CYCLING or SUPPORTING on one of our multi-day cycling tours right here in the United States to bring the hope of the Gospel to global youth.  JOIN A TOUR and activate your faith physically and spiritually as you #PrayPedalRepeat on mission with a global purpose!

At Ends of the Earth Cycling,  we want you to know where your donations are going and how they are being used. The Ends Cycling CREW members are missionaries that raise their own support through churches and individuals like yourselves - no monies raised from cycling tours goes to them.  90% of all funds/donations from cycling tours go directly toward impacting youth around the world in Jesus name!  The other 10% helps to fund the admin for our parent organization, New International (NI); a not-for-profit, which in all honestly, helps us do what we do all the better.   Donations can be made to specific Ends Cycling Missionaries below.
