O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A! From country music to cowboys, Oklahoma offers a true slice of Southern culture and charm. It is the home of friendly people and heavenly inspired sunsets. New frontiers are emerging that blend the best of the past with the bright horizons of the future. The remarkable spirit of this thriving crossroads region embodies the feisty independence of bygone days.
Enjoy & Explore
This 5 day, 300 mile ride will take us on a journey around Central and Southern Oklahoma. You will experience a dynamic range of terrain with something for every cyclist as the wooded hill country gradually transitions to rolling short-grass prairie in the heart of the state. You will view everything from the skyline of the capital city to wild buffalos grazing on tall grass. You will pass through many small towns with unique histories, spend two days on “The Mother Road,” historic Route 66, and ride on city trails and county roads that highlight the beauty of this amazing state.
Western charm meets metropolitan life in Oklahoma's Capital City where sights like the State Capitol and the OKC Bombing Memorial Survivor Tree decorate the skyline. We then head west to the historic city of El Reno situated at the crossroads of Route 66 and the Chisholm Trail. Riding towards the scenic Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge will bring sights of grazing buffalo, elk, and deer. A century ride will be available with a challenging three mile climb up Mt. Scott.
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 New Zealand. With amazing cities, miles and miles of natural space to explore, a beautifully diverse culture, and the most gorgeous sunsets around, it’s easy to see why coming to Oklahoma is a ride you just won’t want to miss.
For The Youth Of:
The Reason We Ride...
On this tour, you will be riding for the youth in New Zealand. Our beneficiary ministry there is called Shore Youth. Here is a word from them:
New Zealand is a small country of 5 million people, made up of two main islands. We live on the North Island in the North Shore area of the city of Auckland, the largest city in
New Zealand. New Zealand is well known for movies such as Lord of the Rings, and The Hobbit but many people do not know that it is also one the most unchurched and secular nations in the world.
The spiritual needs of our youth are massive. Most do not know God, and are unaware how God can impact their lives. New Zealand has one of the highest teen suicide rates per capita in the world. Our young people need a place to feel safe, to belong, to be in community and to find their God given purpose.
Shore youth is a place where young people can hang out, find community and where Jesus is presented in a non-threatening way. We do this through providing a fun environment where young people can bring their friends. While also providing a place where young people can go deeper into the word, where they can be challenged and where we can do life together. The funds raised will enable us to:
Send youth to camps
Organize and take youth on a mission trip
Provide young people with leadership and personal development training
Hold community youth events
This is where you (Ends of the Earth Cycling Participants) come in… The prayers and funds raised from this tour will give us an incredible opportunity to impact young people in New Zealand. Will you help us and #PrayPedalRepeat for the youth of New Zealand?
