Summer Rides

In the last nine years, the Fuller Center Bicycle Adventure has helped hundreds of people have some of the most meaningful experiences of their lives.  They come to ride bikes and change lives by building houses along the way, but they leave finding themselves the ones truly changed and with friendships built for life.

We’ll cover about 75 miles on an average Summer Ride day, and we’ll pull off the road several times throughout the route for Build Days.  On a Build Day, our group will visit with a local Fuller Center chapter and help them in their local efforts to repair and build homes. We support each other as we ride, and we also have a van supporting us! We spend each night eating, sleeping and sharing in fellowship in host churches — which offer some of the most enthusiastic and warm welcomes you can imagine.

The event is an invitation, not a race — an invitation for every individual, church or business to break from the routine of daily life and follow Jesus’s call to love and serve our neighbor, especially “the least of these.” Thirty years from now, will you wish you spent more time in an office or more time out exploring beautiful countryside, getting your hands dirty and changing the world?

What you’ll experience:

  • Fresh air.
  • Shooting star in the endless western sky.
  • Authentic small-town hospitality.
  • Falling asleep in a church…without feeling guilty!
  • Changing the life of a child by helping her have a place to call home.
  • Laughing ’til it hurts.
  • Living in a supportive community that becomes a family.
  • Eating ridiculously large church feasts…and still losing weight!
  • True giving, and thus, the greater blessing.
  • Viewing gorgeous countryside from the seat of a bicycle.

We want our riders to understand the risks of long-distance cycling.
