Bike to boost your neighbors out of poverty! 

ECSF's BikeFest offers four glorious rides in August - a perfect way for you to love your neighbor by raising funds for grants to ministries including Neighborhood Services in the University District, the St. Philip Columbus Pantry, In the Garden at Trinity, Capitol Square,  St. John's in Franklinton, the Madison County Pantry, and other vital ministries throughout Southern Ohio. Did you know that ECSF has provided $1.127 million in community ministry grants since 2005, all of this from freewill donations?  $276,060 - the second-largest share of any region - of that has gone to ministries in Central Ohio.  (Only the Appalachian region deaneries have a higher total!)  
You can ride or sponsor a rider. Here are the options:
Aug. 9-10:  Terrace Park to Xenia round trip on Little Miami Trail, with free overnight lodging at Christ Church, Xenia and visit to IHN Xenia
Aug. 10:  Little Miami Bike Trail morning ride, your choice of distance, with picnic lunch on Terrace Park Green
Aug. 17:  Dayton Five Rivers Adventure, 7 miles on beautiful forest trails with picnic at Wegerzyn Botanical garden and space movie at Boonshoft Museum of Discovery
Aug. 17;  Dayton-Xenia round trip on Creekside trail, with picnic and shelter tours in Xenia
All rides are $25 for adults, $10 for children under 18, $50 max per family.  Please sign up at before Aug. 1 to make sure we have a t-shirt in your size.  There's a colorful PDF describing each ride which you can download and email to family and friends. Once on ECSF's website, visit the Awarding Grants link to see if your church has a grant this year.  Read about grantee impact at our Successes link.
