Pedaling for Papilio

As cyclists we know the sense of freedom we feel on our bikes.  Have you ever imagined that your passion for cycling could be used to help bring true freedom to others?

We will cycle to bring hope and freedom to those who are trapped in human trafficking and fight for the physical, emotional and spiritual freedom of each one.  We will use our passion for cycling to raise funds, foster relationships, create awareness and personally expand our own perspective and impact on others around the world.

“Use what you love to fight what you hate.”

All funds are 100% tax-deductible! 
The Cause:
We will be partnering with Papilio, an organization in Southern Spain fighting on the front lines against human trafficking.  Team members are involved with awareness and prevention in their community and work directly with young women on the streets to provide relief and to seek opportunities for rescue.  The local team in Spain will be actively supporting our ride, sharing with us the reality of the situation in Spain and those interested can join the Papilio team  for an evening on the streets to serve and support.
The Ride:

Spain is a cycling friendly country with both locals and tourists enjoying the beautiful and diverse landscape.  Whether a first-time visitor or on a welcomed return to Spain, riders are sure to enjoy the culture, food and people…..it’s not all about pedaling!

Dates: April 10 – 19, 2020

Cost: $4000 minimum fundraising  ($2500 Rider Registration will cover airfare, lodging, meals, bike rental/shipping, custom jersey / $1500 minimum will go directly to support Papilio to fight human trafficking.)  All funds are 100% tax-deductible.

Itinerary will include 4-5 cycling days, optional cultural and tourist activities, pleasant accommodations, and great meals.  Travelers may also join the Papilio team to learn more about their work.

Cycling distances will be 35-60 miles per day/average with potential options for less or more as desired.

Bicycle options:  Bring your own, rental provided (carbon road bike) – either option is covered by cost.

Due to the nature of the trip as a cycling tour with limited spaces, all travelers are also expected to be cyclists and plan on participating in the rides, therefore we are unable to accommodate non-rider.
