The MCC Flatlander Bicycle Ride takes place on the third Saturday in September, with this year's ride being on September 19, 2020. Due to COVID-19 the ride will be virtual! The ride is designed to provide an enjoyable bicycling experience for people at all fitness levels. The Flatlander is a benefit for Mennonite Central Committee.
Project: Safe water for schools in Nicaragua - Join MCC and Christian Medical Action to construct new wells at five schools and repair existing water and sanitary systems at three additional schools. With these improvements, students will have the safe water they need to drink and wash their hands. Clean water means that children will be sick less often and miss fewer days at school. The wells will also help families who live near the schools, as they can use water from the wells, improving the health of whole communities!
Our goal this year is $10,000.
The 2019 Flatlander raised a total of $14,740 for a water project in Nigeria.
Riders are encouraged to ask friends, coworkers, etc., for contributions for the
Flatlander and/or to make a personal contribution above the registration fee.
Contributions can be brought in the morning of the ride. Gift certificates from Bicycle
Pedaler for $100, $60, and $40 will be given to the riders or families who raise the three highest amounts in contributions.
Contributions (checks made out to MCC Flatlander Bicycle Ride) may be sent to MCC Flatlander Bike Ride, 5745 N. Oliver Rd, Newton, Kansas 67114.
