Refresh our cyclists

How You Can Help

Ends of the Earth Cycling is always looking for churches, businesses, or groups of people willing to host an official rest stop for our cyclists during tours. Rest stops are a welcomed sight for our participants after many miles on the road. If you are interested in hosting a rest stop please contact us.

​Rest stops usually consist of a table under a shade tent along the route with food and refreshments. We love for groups to get creative with rest stop ideas. Here are a few suggestions and guidelines. Lets get creative together!

What You Can Expect

Groups of cyclists (4-10) will arrive at a rest stop for 10-30 min at a time, then will leave and begin to cycle again. Multiple groups will come through the rest stop between the 2 hour window during the day. 

We will help suggest and secure your location.
