Bike for Bibles 2023

How far will you bike for Bibles this summer?

Get active this summer and fundraise for Bible mission by signing up to do a sponsored bike ride – there are so many ways to take part!

Hop on your bike and head out on the road or clock up the miles on your exercise bike. 

Don’t have a bike? No problem! Why not walk for the word? Strap on your pedometer, grab your map, and trek out across town and country.

It’s so easy to take part:

  1. Sign up here and set up a JustGiving page for your ride.
  2. Decide on your route and how many miles you want to commit to.
  3. Spread the word! Let your friends and family know. Put the word out on your social media, asking people to pledge their support.
  4. Bike for Bibles!

How many miles do I have to do?

There’s no minimum – do whatever you feel you can commit to or would like to challenge yourself to achieve. You could take inspiration from the Bible and commit to:

Seven miles: the distance between Jerusalem and Emmaus, following in the footsteps of the disciples who met Jesus on the road.

Twenty miles: the distance between Jerusalem and the river Jordan. All of Jerusalem went out to hear John the Baptist at the Jordan and you can recreate that journey.

Eighty-five miles: the distance between Capernaum and Jerusalem. Jesus and his disciples made this journey to celebrate the Passover and his Passion.

Ninety miles: the distance between Nazareth and Bethlehem. Joseph and pregnant Mary made this journey to the place of Joseph’s ancestors, the place of Jesus’ birth.

The pledges you raise and donate to Bible Society by taking part in Bike for Bibles are valued and appreciated. Your support will help to get the life-changing message of the Bible to those places where it is desperately needed – places like Ukraine, China, and the very lands where the Bible was written. By biking for Bibles this summer, you will be helping to transform lives for the better.
