What you need to know to participate in the Ride for Freedom:
The Cycling events are very different then our walking and running events.

These are the things you should be prepared for:

Most important all riders have to be ready to carry all of their gear, we do not have vehicles with us so what you need, you need to be able to carry.

We will be camping and sleeping on floors in supporters homes, churches and community centers

The normal $5 to $10 dollar a day donation from the participants is waived. The reason is because each cyclist is responsible for their own meals on the days we are not being feed by the community; repairs that might need to be done to their bikes along the way, we do not have a support vehicle so no gas is needed and on the nights that we need to pay for camping we can all pitch in.

Things we recommend you will want to be able to carry:
*Sleeping Bag
*Bed Roll
*Two Water Bottles
*Inner Tubes
*Bicycle Tools
*Hand Air Pump
*Travel Dishes
*Tooth Paste and Brush
*Comb or Brush
Any other personal items you might need
