As part of 1MISSION’s Bikes Fight Poverty: VIRTUAL event, riders fundraise to put families in homes by riding at home, at the gym, or around the neighborhood – all at their own pace. They do this for one inspiring purpose: giving families in poverty access to safe, secure housing.
Join us by riding virtually. You can form a team of friends, family, coworkers – or go solo! Our virtual riders like to get creative when it comes to fundraising. Whether they're asking for donations per mile, committing their birthday, or doing a live pitch over Facebook, our virtual riders are working hard to fight poverty. They’ll do whatever it takes to help more families get access to safe, secure housing.REGISTER NOW
What to Expect
Virtual riders can ride at home, at the gym, or around the neighborhood – all at their own pace. One of the best parts about being a virtual rider is that YOU get to set your expectations and decide how you want to push yourself to fundraise. Whether you ride at home on a Peloton, at the gym, or around the neighborhood, you’re working hard to make a lasting difference for hardworking families.
1MISSION will provide you your own fundraising page that you can personalize, share, and connect to Facebook. This is the easiest way to collect donations. We will also provide a fundraising coach to help you meet and exceed your fundraising goals. Last but not least, you will receive our exclusive event T-shirt, so you can rep 1MISSION wherever you are.

Fees and Fundraising
The cost to participate is $1 and is due at the time of registration. That’s right: just one buck.
Each rider is responsible for a $150 fundraising minimum but we’ll encourage you to set a stretch goal. Donations from your family and friends will help support 1MISSION’s projects and programs in the field. Does the idea of fundraising sound scary? Don’t worry, we’re pros at this. Our fundraising coach will provide you helpful tips and tools to help you meet and exceed your fundraising goal.
How to Get Started
The first step is to register. Then set up your fundraising page and start training and campaigning! If you want to join in on some of the training rides taking place in Arizona, you can join our Bikes Fight Poverty Facebook group to get up-to-date invites and information.REGISTER NOW
LEGENDS are Bikes Fight Poverty’s VIPs. These riders think big. They make a lot of noise. And they back it up with action. By committing to raise at least $8,000, LEGENDS cover the cost to build an entire house for a family in poverty. Now that’s legendary! As our way of saying thanks, LEGENDS get exclusive swag and other legend-worthy perks.LEARN MORE
