When I help others up their mountain
I find myself on top of that mountain with them!
Corinna (age 24)–Teen Challenge client
I’ve jokingly referred to this publication as RICH’S SEMI-REGULAR NEWSLETTER. “Semi-regular” was intended as “no rigid schedule,” not “once a year.” Sigh.
I won’t try to describe an entire year’s worth of RICH’S RIDE journeys in one message. In recent months we’ve been to Arizona and Wisconsin. We’ve addressed Ironman triathletes, Teen Challenge clients, a ten-year reunion of rehab patients and caregivers, detention center inmates, and lots of other interesting groups. As always, the impact of our journeys is found in the stories of the people we encountered. We share and reflect on those stories over at the RICH’S RIDE blog. We hope you’ll follow along and join the discussion as we continue our journey of hope.
Front Range FREEDOM Tour
This annual tour is becoming RICH’S RIDE’S signature event.
In 2014, a team of 16 dedicated folks cycled nearly 500 miles from Cheyenne, Wyoming to Raton Pass. They raised over $20,000 in support of Project Rescue’s Home of Hope in New Delhi. The home serves kids who’ve been rescued from sex trafficking.
The shared sacrifice of riding and living together on a bike tour, especially for a worthwhile cause, builds an incredibly strong community. Life-long bonds formed in that environment transfer to other forms of service as people experience the joy and practical benefits of sharing Jesus’ love in tangible ways doing something they love.
We’re excited to continue and expand this project and the community that surrounds it. We’re already planning for Front Range FREEDOM Tour ’15. There are many ways to get involved. Please click the link and check on developments as plans are finalized.
Another exciting development since my last “Semi-Regular” note is a volunteer gig at Harvest Farm.
Are you on Facebook? Will you be my friend? Please? Anyway, I hope you’ll connect with me in these places:
- Join the RICH’S RIDE Facebook page (and suggest it to your friends!)
- Be my friend on Facebook. I need all the help I can get.

I continue to seek speaking opportunities. I’d appreciate the opportunity to visit your community and speak to your group. Please visit this page for more information about my speaking experiences and possible topics.
