The Ride

Hope Ride is a six-day, six-hundred-mile bicycle epic that travels through four nations to help raise funds in the support of missionary and humanitarian efforts in west Zambia. In 2011, working in partnership with Reaching a Generation, Pastor David Crabtree connected his love of cycling with a passion for missions, creating a vehicle that provides living water for the soul and clean water for the villages in this forgotten corner of the world.

Beginning in South Africa, Hope Ride’s route includes a crossing of the Chobe National Wildlife Reserve in Botswana, where elephants roam free and horizons seem boundless. Namibia serves as a gateway to west Zambia and the mighty Zambesi River, where the journey ends near the town of Sioma.
