Prepare yourself for the ride of a lifetime. Idaho is filled with the most incredible views. From mountain passes, to deserts, to vineyards and orchards, there is nothing boring about Western Idaho. We begin our 5 day journey entering the breath-taking land just north of Boise. There is a view of the whole valley that will give you goosebumps. Day 2 you'll find yourself entering into Oregon and riding the hills that make this area of the country so unique. Day 3 hold onto your oxen, the Oregon Trail will be visible from the route today! Days 4 and 5 bring us into the incredible mountains that lay East of Boise. If all of
those were not enough, you'll be experiencing it with our beneficiaries from Wipe Every Tear who plan to join us and share the joys and struggles of rescuing sex-trafficked girls in the Philippines. It will be a tour like none other. Join us and explore the Wild West with Ends Cycling and Wipe Every Tear.

For The Youth Of:
The Reason We Ride...
On this tour, you will be riding for the youth in the Philippines. Here is a word from our beneficiary ministry there is called Wipe Every Tear.
Wipe Every Tear is committed to bringing hope and healing in the lives of women trafficked in the sex trade in the Philippines. From safe places to call home, education
through college, and holistic healing, women have the opportunity to have their lives fully restored.
Safe homes are an integral part of Wipe Every Tear’s mission. These homes serve as places of safety where women are provided with all of the essentials for living, including a bed, food, and educational tools. Fully believing in holistic care, their medical and dental needs are also covered, as well as discipleship and counseling. This all-encompassing approach is crucial to healing and transformation.
One cannot even work in entry-level jobs, such as fast food, without a 4-year college degree. This inequality gap leaves women vulnerable to being trafficked, as it is one of the very few ways to earn a bit of money without a degree. In such an overly populated nation like the Philippines, of 104.9 million people, jobs are a rare find.
Trafficking is defined as the exploitation of vulnerability, which is exactly the position that extreme poverty leaves many of the women who are tricked into the sex trade. Education allows women to create a bright future for themselves and their loved ones. In many areas, a college degree or vocational training means the ability to find a job that can sustain her family. Education through the college level is key to breaking the chains of sex trafficking.
Wipe Every Tear began taking meals into the bars of Angeles City, Philippines, early in 2019 as an additional outreach to night-time conversation with women and girls who are currently exploited in the sex trade. This meal outreach has already built more trust with these girls, and bar staff, allowing us to have fruitful interactions and conversations during the day as compared to night. Around 100-200 meals are distributed once a week, all lovingly placed into hands on the Walking Street. This shows how almost every person that is “working” in this Red Light District is there due to extreme poverty. Many women earn only ~$2-$5 per night at a bar per 12-hour shift, so there is little money for food. Meeting this tangible need is a significant way to bring the love and hope of Jesus into this region.
Wipe Every Tear’s hope is to utilize the prayers and funds raised from this tour to fund higher volume meal outreaches that will significantly increase the trust-building with girls who have been exploited by sex trafficking. We hope that they will choose freedom and move into our care as a result of this new, impactful facet of our ministry. Will you help us reach this goal and #PrayPedalRepeat for the women of the Philippines?

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, go 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. 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.
Paceline - 16+ mph average
Journey Lovers Plus - 14-15 mph average
Journey Lovers - 12-13 mph average
SEE Train - 10-11 mph average
D Group - >9mph 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.
