It all started in 2014 when we rode our bikes from Austin to San Antonio to raise awareness, to raise support, and to raise prayer for the church plant we now know as Crossway Bible Church. The next year we rode for churches in Haiti and last year we rode for the planting of Redemption Bible Church New Braunfels, Texas. This year we’re riding FOR MEXICO…HARVEST IGESIA BIBLICA – MEXICO CITY
20 Miler. This is a great option that any rider can do. It starts in the heart of New Braunfels and heads up the famous scenic River Road. This is an “out and back” route. This route is for anyone on any bike. Low to moderate experience required.
55 Miler. This is the sweet spot. This route is half the distance with all the beauty and plenty of challenge. It winds through the Texas hill country and cascades down River Road. Road bike recommended and moderate experience required.
75 Miler. This is the full Vertical Church Challenge Ride. This is a tough route that is only for those who are trained cyclists. This a beautiful route that parallels the “55 miler” and continues on weaving through Texas hill country and finishes back at Landa Park. Proper equipment and moderate to high experience required.
