OYE! This weekend, a crew of 14 bike riders rolled into Kansas City, kicking off Segment Six of the Fuller Center Bike Adventure Coast to Coast Ride in the name of raising awareness and money to eliminate poverty housing. The Fuller Center for Housing is so grateful for all of the people who have made the past few days glorious!
The riders arrived at the Northland Cathedral on Saturday, July 7, after riding 450 miles in Segment 5 from Garden City, KS to from July 1 – 8. After arriving (and a little bit of rest!) on Saturday, the riders were welcomed by the Fuller Center family at a community dinner hosted at North Oak Christian Church. Riders and FCH family shared in fellowship and a great meal. After dinner, the riders shared their experiences and what it’s like to ride about 75 miles per day. The newest partner family, The Petersons, were also introduced!
Sunday is a day of rest for FCBA cyclists. After splitting up and visiting our Faith Builder congregations for worship, the riders toured the town with FCH’s very own Graham Houston.
Monday, July, 9, was the build day. The cyclists came together with FCH board and volunteers to complete the surface of the Peterson family’s deck. Construction Committee Chairman Herb Tillingast stated that FCH is, “So blessed to have Joe Grysban to design the deck, build the materials list, and guide the on-site FCBA team…” Local news channels Fox 4 KC and KCTV5 stopped by to get coverage on the build day.
Today, the cyclists packed up and hit the road, off to their next stop of Segment Six in Warrensburg, where they will spend another build day immersed in the service of others. Next, They’ll stop in Jefferson City, the capital of our great state to hop on the Katy trail, and then pedal forward to Hermann, MO. The riders will conclude the week, arriving in St. Louis.
