This May 2023 let's ride together and support a ministry we love!
Invite friends, family, and neighbors to ride with you in the Bike-a-thon! You choose the dates, any time in the month of May. The number of miles isn’t important, riding together to support a great cause is the reason. There is no cost to ride with us! A Pedaling For A Purpose t-shirt is included with donation of at least $30 or more. If Brigade has impacted you in a powerful way, grab your bike and helmet, and shout, “LET’S RIDE!”

Are you biking with a group? Turn this event into a discipleship opportunity!
Action-driven discipleship is in Brigade’s DNA. We have leaders’ guides covering many different skill areas – including bicycling. We have Bikes & Boards discipleship guides for 3-6th grade, and Trail Biking discipleship guides for 7-12th grade young men. We will give you the guides and award patches you need for 4 meetings focusing on bicycling with biblical lessons.
If you register a team, we’ll give you our bicycling discipleship guides and award patches for FREE.
All you need to do is send your request to: firstname.lastname@example.org
While young men across the country learn about the importance of loving God and loving others in their local Brigade unit, you can help them by pedaling for a purpose. For the month of May, you are back in Brigade! Join fellow alumni and current participants to raise support for a great cause!
Do you remember your unit number? Write it down and pin it to your front and back as you ride.
Remember the amazing experience you had in Brigade and the life changing impact it had on you? Pedal for a Purpose and give a boy the same opportunity you had as a kid.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)
Q: Are we getting sponsored per mile we ride?
A: No, you get to ride however and wherever you want as an individual or a team. It’s flexible! Encourage people to sponsor the event, not necessarily each mile. (If you want to set a mileage goal, that’s great!)
Q: How do people donate?
A: First register HERE and then you can create your own page to raise funds. As soon as you register, we will send you a detailed email on how to get started, including how to start a Facebook fundraiser, email your friends and family and other tools to help you get started.
Q: Can someone sponsor me directly?
A: Absolutely! Just send them the link to the page you created and they can select you to sponsor.
That money will go towards your overall goal!
Q: How can someone find me so they can be my sponsor?
A: There are two ways they can find you! First, you can directly send them the link to your fundraising page. Second, if they go to our main fundraising page they can look you up by searching your name there and donate to you that way!
Q: How do I get started with fundraising?
A: We have a helpful collection of tips right HERE!
Q: If our team raises the goal level amounts for a prize, do we all get the prize?
A: Each prize is gifted to the individual, so teams can work towards a goal together, but prizes will be awarded for individual levels reached.
Q: Is there an age limit to ride?
A: We encourage everyone to take part. That’s why it’s so flexible, anyone can help support Brigade by riding.
