LIFECYCLES exists to build young men of character. We believe that God loves — and has a plan for — each person.
LIFECYCLES wraps mentoring, spiritual development, and life skills development in the adventure of a Christ-centered bicycle touring experience for urban teens. This unique combination introduces new environments, provides physical activity and an enjoyment of creation that can be sustained for decades. And, it opens teens to communication and learning during these crucial years of development and opportunity.
In the LIFECYCLES experience, boys come under the loving mentorship of a group of men who will guide him to a fulfilling, contributing adulthood. Teens are introduced to the gospel of Jesus Christ and invited into an eternal relationship with the God of the universe. They learn teamwork, leadership, followership, the value of their education, and practical life skills from money management to healthy living habits, finding and holding a job, and engaging others with respect, honesty, and dignity.
Three days per week (Tuesday evenings, Thursday evenings, and Saturdays), LIFECYCLES teens exercise, train, and ride with the experienced cyclists and trained mentors. Weekday rides are for training, while Saturday rides explore new roads and achieve greater distances as riders build confidence and pride in their results.
In summer months, LIFECYCLES teens have the opportunity to experience optional, multi-day “challenge” rides to continue to expand their capabilities, self-confidence, teamwork and leadership skills.
Cost? All rides, FREE! Helmets, bicycles, bike maintenance, FREE! All rides begin with prayer and end with a meal. Meals, FREE! Transportation to and from events, FREE! LIFECYCLES, in partnership with Hope, believes so strongly in this opportunity that there is NO COST to participate in LIFECYCLES! No cost whatsoever!
