Cleveland Circuit Ride
What is the Cleveland Circuit Ride?
The CCR is a fundraising bike ride with three road courses to choose from: 25, 50, or 100 km through southern Bradley County in the foothills of the Smokey Mountains.
In partnership with local businesses like Scott’s Bicycle Centre, The Circuit Ride is raising money for Family Promise of Bradley County. All proceeds to benefit FPBC. This is a fully supported road ride with SAGs (Support and Gear stops) and mobile units on the courses to assist riders when needed on an unbelievably flat route (for SE TN).
Where did you get the name from? The Cleveland Circuit Ride is the embodiment of Wesleyan beliefs: namely that the world is our parish. The early reformer and founder of the Methodist faith, John Wesley, did not confine himself to the pulpit in preaching the Gospel; he went into the streets, the pubs, the communities, seeking lost sinners; those little valued by "society", but greatly loved by God. John Wesley was called the Circuit Rider because of the travel by horse that took him to his missions. The Cleveland Circuit Ride is established to do God's work - to reach out and love (in a practical way) His children who are in need. Why Family Promise? Family Promise is focused on the needs of homeless families; providing both shelter and comprehensive case management necessary to make a family self-sufficient and able to stand unassisted (many of whom return to help uplift others).
