Bicycle Tour for Heart of Hope set for June 6

Heart of Hope-A Sanctuary for Women will be hosting its Fourth Annual LifeCycle on Saturday, June 6, 2015 @ 8 a.m.

Heart of Hope LifeCycle is a benefit bicycle tour for all ages and skill levels. We offer an event for the Lycra loving, hardcore cyclists, as well as a fun and non-intimidating event for leisure cyclists and families. LifeCycle is more than just fundraising; our goal is to encourage cycling and fitness in the region while educating our kids and community on cycling safety.HeartOfHopeLOGO

LifeCycle rode onto the scene in the Shreveport-Bossier area in 2012 and has proven itself to be a very promising event, drawing participants from six states over the past years. Event sponsors and volunteers put this event on the map in a big way with all proceeds going to benefit Heart of Hope-A Sanctuary for Women, a non-profit maternity home in Keithville, LA. Cyclists raved about the event saying that it exceeded their expectations from start to finish.

Pre-event activities begin at River City Cycling, Saturday, May 30, 2015, with packet pick-up.  We will also be hosting our annual Carb-Load Dinner at Heart of Hope on Friday, June 5th starting in the gym @ 5 p.m for a $5 donation at the door. Packet pick-up, registration, and LifeCycle merchandise will also be available Friday evening. Saturday morning breaks daylight with registration/check-in beginning at 7a.m., and the staggered launch of the 28, 42, & 66 mile routes starts at 8 a.m. The Family Fun Ride, which includes the 5 and 14 mile routes, will launch at 9 a.m. Don’t fret, if 5 miles sounds like too long of a stretch, we have “cheat turns” that will cut that a little shorter if you or your lil’ ones get tired.

Registration will be capped at 500 registrants this year. Registrants receive an event T-shirt, goody bag, ticket for door prizes, and access to all event day activities. LifeCycle offers breakfast snacks, fully stocked rest stops, a Youth Bike Safety Clinic hosted by Think First, SAG for each route, and a post ride lunch that will make all of those miles worthwhile.

Heart of Hope is a non-profit organization that is largely volunteer-driven. Participation in this benefit tour and the donations raised will help provide hope and a future for young women facing an unplanned pregnancy.
