EVENT DATE: May 18, 2017

NOTE: ***Still OPEN to Segment Registrations***
Beginning May 18 and ending July 20, 2017, Beloved Ministries (a subsidiary of Across International Ministries) will host a fully supported Sea 2 Sea Bicycle ride from San Francisco, California to Yorktown, Virginia. Our passion for underserved children in Mongolia, China, & Pakistan will be the focus of the ride letting people across the US know about the children and the organizations serving them, specifically Alpha Communities and Shining Light-International.
We are still looking for people who want to pray, Cycle, raise funds, or Roadie/Drive(one of our vehicles) for one or more of the ride Segments. The cost is $1,000 USD for cyclists and $500 USD for Roadies/Drivers for each Segment. Non-refundable Registration fees are $100 USD and $50 USD, respectively, with fund-raising available for the remainder of the ride costs. Additional personal costs may include Transportation to and from your Start and Finish points, bicycle chains, tubes & tires, US Medical Insurance coverage (required), and miscellaneous Personal Items. You can ask questions, and get additional information at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Check out the published route at www.adventurecycling.org. San Francisco, CA to Pueblo, CO is the "Western Express" route. Pueblo, CO to Yorktown, VA is the eastern portion of the "TransAmerica" route (segments 7-12). Recently we have modified the routing, going NE to Pittsburg from southernmost Illinois, then onto Washington DC instead of SE into Kentucky, but ending in the same Yorktown, VA.
