For The Youth Of:

The Reason We Ride...

On this tour, you will be riding for the youth in Tanzania. Our beneficiary ministry there is called Mavuno Village. Here is a word from them:

Mavuno Village’s founding director grew up in Tanzania himself and says he can remember a time “when there was no such thing as an orphan in Tanzania” because of

the strong family and community structure. Over the last 30 years, this natural network of care began to break down due to factors such as HIV AIDS, increase in travel, changes in cultural values, and broken relationships. In a country of 58 million people, the median age is 18, and many of Tanzania’s children and youth continue to fall through the cracks that have formed.

Mavuno Village was founded in 2004 to respond to Tanzania’s orphan crisis through family ministry.  Homes were built, and Tanzanian moms and dads are placed in the homes as caregivers.  The vision of Mavuno Village is seeing our children become godly, self-sufficient Tanzanians, and our mission is to encourage and enable that process through these families.  

We seek to provide our young men and women with the skills and resources they need to thrive and serve as leaders in their future families and communities through avenues like agricultural development, quality education, counseling and discipleship.  We are currently developing our agricultural program to get our youth more involved and to make it a profitable venture for the organization.  We are also seeking to ensure that when our students graduate secondary school, they have opportunities to make peace with their past stories, to study the Bible and get involved in outreach, and to pursue educational opportunities that fit their skills and interests. 

 

Our hope is that the prayers and funds raised through the Sisterhood Bike Ride 2022 can help us improve our agricultural program as well as provide scholarships, books and other materials for discipleship training, counseling, and college preparation.  We are grateful to partner with you, through Ends Cycling as you #PrayPedalRepeat on behalf of the young people at Mavuno Village in Tanzania!

Children 12 and under are FREE (unless otherwise noted - example: a Super Family Friendly type tour with kid activities, events, that would have an additional cost, etc.).

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, get a cycling computer and see where you are at!) A suggested 10 week training schedule is available to you. 

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.

Break Away - 18+ mph average

Paceline - 16-17 mph average

Journey Lovers - 14-15 mph average

SEE Train - 13-14 mph average

D Group (trikes, etc) - 11mph 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.
