Ride for Freedom – Spain 2018
As cyclists we know the sense of freedom we feel on our bikes. Have you ever imagined that your passion for cycling could be used to help bring true freedom to others?
We will cycle to bring hope and freedom to those who are trapped in human trafficking and fight for the physical, emotional and spiritual freedom of each one. We will use our passion for cycling to raise funds, foster relationships, create awareness and personally expand our own perspective and impact on others around the world.
“Use what you love to fight what you hate.”
~ Jeremy Vallerand, President & CEO Rescue Freedom
“Let your dreams be bigger than your fears and your actions louder than your words.
Human trafficking is destroying lives, but freedom will have the final word.”
~ Christine Caine, A21 Founder
“I do not agree with the big way of doing things.
To us, what matters is an individual.”
~ Mother Teresa, Saint of Calcutta
“Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor;
it must be demanded by the oppressed.”
~ Martin Luther King, Jr., Minister & Social Justice Activist
“It is a matter of taking the side of the weak against the strong,
something the best people have always done.”
~ Harriet Beecher Stowe, Author & Abolitionist

Cycling distances will be 35-60+ miles per day/average with potential options for less or more as desired.
Bicycle options: Bring your own, rental provided (road bike or ebike) – either option is covered by cost.
Due to the nature of the trip as a cycling tour with limited spaces, all travelers are also expected to be cyclists and plan on participating in the rides, therefore we are unable to accommodate non-riders.
