Inspired by the 700, 1,000, and 1,200 mile walks led by Millard and Linda Fuller in the 1980’s, recent Notre Dame graduate Ryan Iafigliola created the Fuller Center Bicycle Adventure in 2008 as a way to invite more people into our affordable housing movement.
Since our inaugural ride in 2008, the event has ridden through 48 U.S. states, Washington, D.C. and one Canadian Province, helped physically renovate or repair 231 homes, and has raised over $3 million for families in need of housing all over the world. Combined 1,488 riders have ridden over 1,348,000 miles for the mission. We have expanded from our single summer ride, giving people more opportunities to join in service-cycling throughout the year.
Why do we do it? It’s pretty simple:
1. To spread the word about our ministry
2. To raise money for our ministry’s work
3. To develop Fuller Center partners along the way
