The goal of the Fondo d'Congo Bike Ride for Mission is to raise funds for Friendly Planet Missiology in support of their mission to provide reliable, affordable transportation to the people of the D.R. of the Congo in the form of specially equipped bicycles. These bicycles, built for the rugged terrain of the Congo, help facilitate community and leadership development. The 2011 Fondo d'Congo raised nearly $5000 and had bicycles into communities by January 2012. The 2012 Fondo raised $7000.
The event begins and ends at the Charleston Paviliion at Hummel Park. Rides are 5, 10, 25, or 50 miles. To register, go to the Fondo d' Congo website.
