Since 2000, a group of loosely organized people have gathered annually or biannually, doing spontaneous service while travelling, self-supported, on bicycles. Major aspects of the rides include:

  • Providing service wherever they feel called
  • Working cooperatively and using consensus decision making
  • Daily mindfulness practice
  • Having fun!
