Starting in May, the Ride For Water team will embark on their 3,400+ mile journey. Along the way they will climb the steep Cascades, roll through the flat plains of the midwest, and ride through bustling cities of the East Coast. The riders will be biking 80–100 miles almost every day until finish their ride into New York City, New York at the charity: water headquarters. Along the way, the team will stay with host families, on church floors, or in donated hotel rooms in the places they ride through. The team is excited to meet people throughout the journey as they partner with individuals and communities to fight the global water crisis.
