We’ll mark the start and finish lines on the road. Complete the ride as many times as you want and submit your best time!

Why Fundraise

All proceeds benefit Abundant Grace Coastside Worker, a longtime partner of Potrero Nuevo Farm where the Bike Hut is located. Abundant Grace hires the homeless to work on this beautiful organic farm, giving them purpose, a supportive community, and a way to earn money.  More about AGCW:

  • There’s not a program like it anywhere! The Full-Circle Food Justice program brings people experiencing homelessness to the farm every Monday and Thursday to plant, tend, and harvest more than 40 crops on 2 acres. The food is distributed for free to low-income families in Half Moon Bay.
  • The Farm Apprenticeship program invites participants learn about a specific aspect of the farm such as irrigation, machines, greenhouse management, plant health, nutrition, or making value-added farm products. Skill building boosts their confidence and allows them to take on more of a leadership role at the farm.
  • The Conservation Crew Program is all understanding our individual environmental impact We focus on land stewardship projects like invasive species removal, native plantings, erosion control, and trail maintenance.
  • Abundant Grace’s overall programmatic goals include housing, employment, health, sobriety, and food security. Engaging the homeless community with support and tools to transform their lives really works.
  • We’ve seen amazing growth in people! Every year, people we serve find housing, get jobs, go into rehab, and more. We accompany each person in their unique journey toward healing and wholeness.
  • The Coastside Clean Team pays participants to clean up the beaches and Coastside neighborhoods.
  • Our Workforce Development Center is our headquarters for our job-readiness programs and a hub of resources for people who desperately need them.
  • Go to abundantgracecw.org for more information.

The club that raises the most funds (through registrations, donations, sponsorship and peer-to-peer fundraising) will get its name engraved on a plaque inside The Bike Hut!
