Mission Project

Local Mission Project

The circuit ride is an organized bicycle ride which was started in 2015 by the First United Methodist Church of Cleveland, TN as a ministry to support a local mission project in our community.  Currently all of the proceeds are used to support Family Promise of Bradley County, a homeless shelter started to assist struggling families in 2011.

Our purpose

Our purpose is to create a safe, bicycle friendly environment where individuals and families can enjoy a morning of riding in our scenic area and afterwards enjoy the fellowship of a meal together.

Our goal

Our goal is to create a "do not miss annual event." Most of the ride takes place in scenic Bradley County, Tennessee. To make it a safe ride, we avoid traffic by starting/stopping at beautiful Johnston Woods. The longer distance riders can enjoy the opportunity of riding in two states and the four counties of Bradley, Catoosa, Hamilton, & Whitfield. We end the event with a scrumptious meal catered by Café Roma.
