Pedal the Pacific 2019. We are so excited that you are here.

Hello! We are stoked that you’re interested in being a part of the third year of Pedal the Pacific and using your voice to fight for some of the most vulnerable children in our country. We know that sex trafficking is such a complex, overwhelming issue and many of us fall prey to believing that our voice is too small to make any kind of difference. Well, Pedal the Pacific exists to prove that wrong.

The 14 of us who have completed this journey before you believe it to be completely life-changing and quite possibly the most rewarding experience of our lives, which is why we are so excited to see Pedal the Pacific continue on. With that, please be aware that this trip is not only physically demanding but will also require a lot of your time and energy to successfully prepare - about as much as a part time job. PTP is a self-supported ride, so you will be camping every night and carrying nearly 40 pounds of gear on your bike while cycling 1,700 HILLY miles so we want to be sure you have the time to train.

Please read the following requirements and expectations, and if you would still like to apply, fill out the form below. We are so excited to hear from you!

*Application form will be open until August 22nd! No late submissions will be accepted.
