Bike for Bibles

Bike for Bibles is a mostly volunteer-run fundraising initiative for Bible Society Australia. Since it began in 1984, participants in Bike for Bibles rides have raised more than $13 million for Bible Society projects worldwide. This has enabled many thousands around the world to learn to read using God’s Word.
