Bike for Bibles (B4B) is an annual event that brings cycling enthusiasts of all ages and walks of life together for a time of fellowship on the road – with one purpose in mind – to help raise funds for Bible distribution and translation projects of the Canadian Bible Society.
This year’s Rocky Mountain Bike for Bibles initiative will support the Bread of Life program in Peru and Free to Live program in Guatemala. These programs support impoverished and at-risk children and youth with a hand of hope and inspire a brighter tomorrow through the Word of God in their own language. Your participation in this year’s event will go a long way in helping a child in need. Thank you for your support and partnership.
About this ride
July 13 – July 20, 2019
July 13, 2019 – FREE CONCERT / RALLY
A week-long ride is definitely challenging, but it provides many blessings along the way. Our week-long riders keep coming back yearly for a fun time of fellowship on the road. These rides take our team to the most scenic, less traveled routes in the province. Our riders also experience the hospitality and friendship of our host churches.
The day usually starts and ends with devotions, with lots of food, laughter and fellowship in between.
