Check out the 2024 Bicycle Adventure options; registration opens October 3
Charity-minded cyclists will begin assembling on October 13 in Nashville as they get ready to embark upon the final Fuller Center Bicycle Adventure ride of the year, but thoughts already are turning to 2024.
The Bicycle Adventure is The Fuller Center for Housing’s single biggest fundraising event, having raised more than $4.6 million since the inaugural ride in 2008. All time, more than 1,800 riders have pedaled a cumulative 1.7 million-plus miles.
The 2024 Bicycle Adventure will consist of five different routes ranging from one week to a 10-week cross-country ride from Seattle to Washington, D.C. Registration for each of the 2024 rides opens at 9 a.m. EDT on October 3, 2023. Here are the route options for 2024 in chronological order of start dates:
What better way to escape the winter blahs than by riding through The Sunshine State from magical Orlando to colorful Key West? There will be two build days along the way before we hit that incredible stretch through the Florida Keys.
MAY 24 - AUGUST 4
The best way to see America is from the seat of a bicycle, and this route is one of the very best as it begins in the Pacific Northwest, crosses the Rocky Mountains and Yellowstone, traverses the plains and then finishes in our nation’s capital after going over the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Along the way, there will be seven unforgettable build days with our covenant partners.
For those who may find the mileage or 10-week experience a little daunting, you have the option of doing segments instead of the entire ride. But, trust us, numerous people have doubted themselves before their first cross-country ride only to become repeat full-length crossers.
MAY 31 - JUNE 30
It’s hard to imagine cramming more incredible sights into a single four-week bicycle ride than we will witness on this 1,300-mile journey.
From the vast colors and rock formations of Arches and Canyonlands near our start in Moab, Utah, we will traverse the majesty of Grand Tetons and the natural attractions of Yellowstone in segments two and three. Finally, we’ll end with the the snow-capped mountains and crystal-clear waters of Glacier National Park in Montana. Along the way, we will have three build days with covenant partners.
Again, you can choose to do segments of this journey. But — c’mon, let’s face it — you’re going to want to get the whole experience of this incredible scenic route.
Our shortest route of 2024 will not only start and end from the same point, but it also will be 85 percent bicycle trails. The average mileage will be manageable, and we’ll still be able to squeeze in two build days as we practice what we preach.
Enjoy a picturesque ride down the beautiful Natchez Trace Parkway, designated for bikes and light motorized traffic only. You won’t see stop signs, traffic lights or semi-trucks, but you will see plenty of stunning Southern landscapes. We’ll have one build day during this journey, and there will be a van to take you back to the start of the ride.
We look forward to welcoming back the veterans of these rides along with many new faces … who usually become veterans themselves after getting hooked on the mission. We also need support staff for these rides — including drivers and communications/social media interns.
