Break the Cycle and Hope for Justice



Distance - 200 miles

Break The Cycle 200 Ride

Break the Cycle hosts ultra-endurance cycling and running events to raise awareness and funds for real victims of human trafficking and modern-day slavery. There are more than 50 million victims, according to the Global Slavery Index. Shockingly, 1.7 million of them are kids who have been forced into sexual exploitation.

Break the Cycle participants give voice to the issue and raise funds for Hope for Justice to help rescue and restore real victims in the U.S. and around the world.

During this event, an amazing group of cyclists will ride 200 miles from Des Moines to Okoboji in a single day. This ultra-endurance ride is not easy. Departing from Des Moines before sunrise, riders work hard all day to arrive before sunset in Okoboji. The pace is kept between 18-22 mph, in a tight peloton, with SAG vehicles for protection.

We ask that you raise a minimum of $500 and every dollar raised will go straight to help our efforts to end modern slavery. Don't worry, we will give you resources and a platform to raise your support online.

The Break the Cycle 200 Ride will be held on June 21, 2024. The route will go from West Des Moines to Okoboji with stops every 25 miles.
