In addition to our 5-day/300 mile Key West Bike Ride, we are pleased to offer a 3-day, 140 miles, FL-Keys-Only portion of our 13th annual Key West Bike Ride (Monday to Wednesday)! Participants are encouraged to meet us in Homestead, FL at our host church (on Sunday afternoon/evening) for an abbreviated version of our Orientation. This will also be a great time of community and integration with the cyclists who have already been riding for 2 days from Fort Myers.
On Monday morning, your 3-day ride begins with an 40-mile ride from Homestead to Key Largo, via the bypass. Beautiful and scenic views are revealed half-way thru the day. Key Lime Pie awaits your arrival into the FL Keys on Monday afternoon. Tuesday morning, your 2nd day of cycling takes you 50-miles on Route 1 South to Marathon. That day you’ll enjoy tarpon-feeding at Robbie’s of Islamorada and a few other treats. Arriving in Marathon, you will meet an amazing pastor and congregation there who is always excited to host us for worship. The views at dinner are almost as incredible as the food and company. Wednesday will be your 3rd and final day of cycling – 50 miles from Marathon to the Southernmost Point of Key West. By this point, you’ll have truly bonded and made lifetime memories with your team. Make sure you snap a picture at Mile Marker Zero before going to see the beautiful sunset that God paints at Mallory Square.
The total participants between the 3-day and 5-day KWBR rides are limited to 40 cyclists and 15 Support Staff. There is the possibility of a waiting list if the tour begins to get full. As always, your registration will not be complete until payment has been received.
Thursday morning (March 14th), we’ll give you a ride back to Homestead or Ft. Myers at 7am. 3-day participants have the same fundraising goal as 5-day participants.

Our beneficiary, Prosperous Youth Foundation is currently ministering to 70+ youth homes in Thailand. They host summer camps, leadership trainings, disciple youth, have a foster care awareness program and more. This is where we need your help! Help us meet the needs of these youth and #PrayPedalRepeat for the youth of Thailand.
Our version of "glamping": we provide indoor lodging for orientation and all nights of the tour within the sanctuary of a church along the tour route. Hotels are an optional cost to you. You will be responsible for getting yourself to and from the hotel.
The majority (90%) of all donations goes directly toward impacting youth served by our beneficiary in this county, in Jesus’ name. The remaining funds (10%) support the administrative costs for our parent organization, New International, a not-for-profit which, in all honesty, helps us do what we do even better. Tax deductible receipts and year end giving statements are provided to all tour participants and donors. Find our more about our financial transparency and accountability standards on our About page.
