Ends of the Earth Cycling   is always looking for churches, businesses, or groups of people willing to host an official rest stop for our cyclists during tours.  Rest stops are a welcomed sight for our participants after many miles on the road. If you are interested in hosting a rest stop please contact us.

Rest stops usually consist of a table under a shade tent along the route with food and refreshments.  We love for groups to get creative with rest stop ideas. Here are a few suggestions and guidelines.  Lets get creative together!

Rest Stops will need:
  • 2-4 volunteers of all-ages (more are welcome if you choose) ready to serve for about 2 hours - Groups of participants (4-10) will arrive at a rest stop for 10-30 min at a time, then will leave and begin to cycle again. Multiple groups will come through the rest stop between the 2 hour window during the day.

  • Under $75 for food and drink items.

  • Tables, coolers, shade tent (if not shaded already) 

  • We will help suggest and secure your location. 

Rest Stop Suggestions:
  • Feel free to be creative!

  • Set up shade tents for rest stop. (1-2 shade tents or under a large tree)

  • Have tables with food, coolers (ice), cold drinks, etc. 

  • Have rest stop volunteers dress up in costumes to cheer and encourage. Be creative!

  • Portable sound system with fun and upbeat music!

  • Serve cyclists as they come through the rest stop with food, drinks, and encouragement.

  • Have trash cans available.

  • Hand sanitizer is highly recommended.  We love high-fives!

  • Hugs!  We are sweaty but if you hug our cyclists, they will appreciate it.

  • Please note that some riders may have dairy/gluten/nut allergies, so variety and labeling food is a great thing.
