Biking for Babies Spurs Young Athletes to Support Crisis Pregnancy Centers

“At Biking for Babies, we envision a society that embraces the immeasurable worth of every human life from conception to natural death.” Nikki Biese. Exec. Director

The Life Site article below, written by Lisa Bourne, is an inspiring story of young adults involved in raising money for crisis pregnancy centers. They unselfishly give of their time to become ‘missionaries’ on a seven-month period of preparation both physically and spiritually.

A 10-year-old grassroots pro-life outreach that has young adults biking cross-country has given more than half a million dollars to support pregnancy resource centers and continues to grow.

Biking for Babies recently completed its 2019 ride, during which more than 30 college students and young adults cycled a combined 2,500 miles over four routes across the U.S. for the babies, women, and families served by pregnancy resource centers. 

“At Biking for Babies, we envision a society that embraces the immeasurable worth of every human life from conception to natural death,” said Executive Director Nikki Biese. “In order to obtain that vision, Biking for Babies is mobilizing a generation that will change the course of the pro-life movement and is going to change the world.”

Over the 10 years of its existence, Biking for Babies has raised over $550,000 for pregnancy resource centers, Biese told LifeSiteNews.

Riders, or missionaries, apply months in advance. Upon acceptance, they embark on a seven-month period of formation that is both physical and spiritual and centers on the national ride in July.

They are asked to develop and articulate their pro-life testimony based upon three things: what they are doing, why they are doing it, and for whom they will do it. Missionaries have the goal of deepening their personal relationship with Christ and experiencing ongoing spiritual growth.

They partner with life-affirming pregnancy centers to learn about the front line of the pro-life movement and prepare themselves to share the centers’ missions, needs, and client stories to invite financial support for the pro-life movement.
