1MISSION’s Bikes Fight Poverty ride launches from Downtown Phoenix, Arizona, with cyclists pedaling 200+ miles to Puerto Peñasco, Mexico this February 10-11. Throughout the world, one in five people live in inadequate shelter – in dirt-floor houses made of scrap wood, tarps, and trash. 1MISSION’s Bikes Fight Poverty event launched out of a desire to increase awareness of this poverty so close to home, and to raise funds for those fighting it. We promise it will be the best weekend you’ve ever spent on a bike!
