Television journalist rides along with Bicycle Adventure through Mississippi backroads

The Fuller Center Bicycle Adventure’s mission is to raise funds and awareness of The Fuller Center for Housing’s nonprofit housing ministry. One way they help spread the work about the work is by speaking with media during their rides. On Tuesday, though, a television journalist took the coverage a step further.

Journalist Jeremy J. Ford of Meridian, Mississippi’s Fox 30 rode along with the Adventurers for 22 miles of their ride from Newton, Mississippi, to Demopolis, Alabama. You can see his excellent report below:

The Fuller Center Bicycle Adventure’s East Coast ride from Maine to Key West began on Saturday, while the cross-country ride is currently in Louisiana on its way from San Francisco to Savannah (where the two rides will meet for a celebration next month).

KTLA-TV caught up with the riders in Shreveport for this piece.

The Lawton Constitution had this recent report on the group’s visit.

The Fuller Center Bicycle Adventure is closing in on an all-time fundraising mark of $2 million since its first ride in 2008. With about a month left in this year’s ride, this year’s crop of rider-fundraisers are within $100,000 of the milestone.

Obviously, the success can’t be achieved without the riders’ efforts and the fundraisers who contribute to their unique way of raising money for The Fuller Center for Housing’s affordable housing ministry. But the Adventure would not be possible without the hundreds of churches who open their arms to our teams of riders every year. It’s an opportunity for these churches to put faith into action, share Christian love and fellowship and learn about our work.

The Pauls Valley Democrat just published a great article about the welcoming “oasis” our team found at the Pauls Valley Church of Christ on Monday. Check it out here!

The Fuller Center Bicycle Adventure’s cross-country ride — there also are West Coast and East Coast rides this year — is currently in Colorado. Today, the cyclists raising money for The Fuller Center for Housing are pedaling 61 miles from Leadville to Salida.

Check out their Week 3 update below and please consider a gift to help these hardworking riders reach their fundraising goal of $400,000, which would put the ride over the all-time fundraising mark of $2 million since the first Adventure in 2008.

“I didn’t realize people across America are pretty amazing,” Fuller Center Bicycle Adventure cyclist Monica Busby told reporter Jessica Rogness of The Reporter News in Vacaville, Calif., of what keeps drawing her back to the annual fundraising and awareness ride. “There’s a lot more kind people, loving people in this country and I fell in love with that.”

Rogness produced an extensive and detailed article for The Reporter News about the cross-country ride that just began Saturday in San Francisco and arrived in Vacaville on Monday. They are on a 3,600-mile ride to Savannah, while another group of riders is going down the West Coast from Seattle to San Diego and later down the East Coast from Portland, Maine, to Key West, Fla.

Bicycle Adventure’s spring stop in Houston, Mississippi, extra special this year

Bicycle Adventure’s spring stop in Houston, Mississippi, extra special this year

For the past six years, the Fuller Center Bicycle Adventure has visited Houston, Miss., and been hosted by Parkway Baptist Church during its annual Spring Ride down the Natchez Trace Parkway.

This year the stop had added meaning because the local Habitat for Humanity affiliate in Houston recently switched to The Fuller Center for Housing’s ministry and not only hosted cyclists this year but also put them to work on their first Fuller Center house.

The Chickasaw Journal has a report on the stop and build day at the link below:
