The Power of Community for Survivors When We Ride Together

Thank you for showing up. The Sacred Cycle Community Rides are important to us and our healing as Sacred Cycle participants. These rides are there for us when we are ready to expand our sense of safety; to start to open our eyes to how many good people exist in the world. We want you to know that you have offered an important lifeline in the journey of healing for survivors of sexual trauma. By showing up, you have helped. When you ride with the Sacred Cycle community, you are visibly showing up to support survivors that live in our communities.
