About This Activity

This Traverse City area ride winds through the beautiful hills and backroads of Leelanau County, Michigan and includes a Century Ride, Metric Century Ride and 20 Mile Fun Ride. The Ride for Hope Traverse City offers something for cyclists of all levels of experience. Choose to join us on our century ride, metric century, or 20 mile fun ride. No matter which ride you choose, you will love riding through the beauty that Northern Michigan offers, all while making a lasting difference in the life of a child!

Ride for Hope is a ministry of Christ's Hope International. The scenic ride supports the work of Christ's Hope in caring for AIDS affected orphaned and vulnerable children in sub-Saharan Africa. Christ's Hope International ministers to orphaned and vulnerable children focusing on advocating for and supporting children to live with their extended or foster families in their own communities. This strategy reduces the incidence of children being institutionalized, abandoned, abused, trafficked, and neglected. It strengthens family preservation.
