The MCC Flatlander Bicycle Ride is designed to provide an enjoyable bicycling experience for people at all fitness levels. The Flatlander is a benefit for Mennonite Central Committee.
True to tradition, we have again chosen a water project, this one for school children and their families in Kenya. Many people in Kenya lack access to an improved water supply and sanitation facilities. Using the simple technology of clear plastic bottles and the sun to kill waterborne bacteria, water is made safe to drink. Children and their families are also taught handwashing and basic hygiene practices. The goal for this year's ride is $7,500.
The 2013 MCC Flatlander Bicycle Ride raised an all-time high of $8,000 to support a water project in Vietnam.
All routes will start from the MCC Center. Registration will be from 7-8am. A riders' meeting will take place at 8am. Please be ready to ride before the meeting begins.
