History of Ride 4 Youth

Ride 4 Youth was started in 2012 by members of the Boulware Learning Community at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine who were searching for a way to give back to the Iowa City community in which they lived and learned. Since then, Ride 4 Youth has continued to grow and raise money and awareness for United Action for Youth and Waypoint.

The Ride

The ride has ten routes with varying distances and difficulty to allow biking pros and biking newbies alike to get out and pedal for a great cause. Last year, over 200 bicyclist rode to make a difference to those in need...this year we are expecting that number to increase significantly!

We are encouraging cyclist from both Iowa City and Cedar Rapids to come together to help move local families forward!
