the miles.

Our 2024 National Ride is July 7-14, which includes two travel days and 6 days of riding 100+ miles per day, for life. In 2023, 69 young adult missionaries (18-39 years old) committed to training and undertaking the spiritual task of sharing the beauty of life to raise awareness and financial support for America’s pregnancy resource centers. This year, you’re going to want to be one of the 100 missionaries committed in the same way.

Biking A-Cross America: The Routes

Each July, missionaries bike almost 4,000 miles in six days, sacrificing time away from their jobs, young children, spouses, and/or parents. Our 2024 National Ride (July 9-16) began from eight different starting points across the nation: Green Bay, WI; Columbus, OH (2 teams here!); Ann Arbor, MI; Minneapolis, MN; Fultonville, NY; Natchez, MS; and Dodge City, KS. 5 routes converged in St. Louis, MO and 1 route ended in Arlington, VA after a lap at the National Mall. Our team, comprised of young adults who strengthened their resolve to defend life through athletic and mental challenges, believes in a world that respects the dignity of every single life, and we are chasing that vision.

2024 National Ride is July 7-14.

Follow our journey a-cross America!

Each day of the ride our missionaries share their mileage, hearts and prayers for the unborn and the PRCs that serve their parents.
