Take a bike ride. Make an eternal impact.
Help raise funds for Camper Scholarships. Enjoy a leisurely round trip ride w/ friends from Shipshewana to Middlebury (12 miles). A delicious meal to follow. Visit our Facebook event page for updates and info.

The ride will begin at the Brethren Retreat camp bell, follow the Pumpkinvine Trail into Middlebury (approx 6.0 miles), and then return to Brethren Retreat campus for a celebration meal at the camp.  The event is open to all ages. This is an event for the whole family, and the whole church! The fall colors will be in full display along the trail, and it will be a great day of fellowship, exercise, and a fun way to provide scholarship for campers to attend camp. We are asking that each rider brings pledges for at least $25 to ensure we can provide a good number of scholarships to future campers. We look forward to seeing you all on the bike trail.
