Sacred Cycle

Trauma & Recovery

Trauma from sexual abuse and assault gets stored in the body, manifesting as physical, mental, and emotional stress. Recovery is the process of releasing this trauma. In recovery, we re-learn to feel at home in our bodies, reconnect with our emotions, and reclaim our calm. Working with professionals and peers allows us to address our experience of the world and plan for the long-term. Nature gives us space to process trauma. Through physical activity outdoors, we can focus on our bodies and work with the impacts of trauma. The challenge of mountain biking, along with community support, empowers us on the path to healing.

Mission Statement

Sacred Cycle is healing our community by empowering survivors of sexual abuse and sexual assault, through therapy and cycling; creating a sacred cycle of recovery.

Healing Support Systems

Sacred Cycle Programming encompasses three support systems which support the healing process. They include:

  1. Traditional therapy: In-depth trauma treatment with a licensed counselor to develop an individualized plan for lasting relief. Therapy available on a sliding scale.
  2. Cycling gear and guidance: Personal coaching and a survivors’ cycling group to reap the benefits of being outdoors and in the present. Coaching, bicycle (mountain, road & cruiser options), and equipment are free for use during the duration of the program.
  3. Community: An online platform to connect with coaches, therapists and survivors, volunteer opportunities and more.


Family and friends are critical in helping survivors live full, happy lives. Knowing exactly how to be that support can be tricky. Many people feel it’s not OK to discuss traumatizing events or don’t know the best way to be ‘there’ for a survivor when clearly in need.
