35th Annual Bike-A-Thon

COVID 19 Update April 29, 2020:

Bike-a-Thon Update - Due to the current situation, the Bethel Horizons Bike-a-Thon scheduled for June 6th has been POSTPONED. With the effect of the ongoing shutdown on Bethel Horizons, the Bike-a-Thon will be critical to camp navigating through this crisis. By postponing, the event may be able to happen at a later date. We will also be able to spend more time recruiting riders and helping them to raise pledges for the important work of Bethel Horizons overall. To sign up to be a rider for this event, please go to Click Here to Register

The coronavirus will not deter the Bethel Horizons 35th Annual Bike A Thon which supports the Adventure and Environmental Education Programs. We will keep you updated on any necessary changes. People can ride separately on separate days if needed. Please give and support our continued effort to foster a better understanding of God, Self, Others, and Nature. Supporters like you have sustained Bethel Horizon’s work with several thousand participants for over 50 years. Let’s weather this challenge together.  You can donate to the Bike A Thon . Please add "Bikeathon" as a note at the top of the page and if you want this donation to support a specific rider. 

Current plan:
Bike A Thon is POSTPONED until a date later in the year to be announced this summer.

Back up plan:
People will ride on their own and post videos/photos during a time period shared at some point this summer.
