Biking for The Bridge Restoration Ministry, benefiting people in addiction recovery

We’re having a heat wave! Why would Andrew Kipsey bike over 130 miles from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Monterey Peninsula now?

Because the needs of people in addiction recovery don’t stop because of weather conditions, or a pandemic.

We first met Andrew at a 2012 memorial bike ride on the Monterey Peninsula. That day we also learned of his efforts to help support people in addiction recovery, including annual Bridge to Bridge Rides to help raise funds for a residential year-long faith-based addiction recovery program on California’s Central Coast.

Learn about his 2020 fundraising ride below, and—in his own words—why he and Ross Doyle, Tim Uncapher, Jude Hargett, Dave Springer, and Christopher Springer are doing it.


ANSWER: We love to ride bikes, and we love The Bridge. We have an opportunity to use this ride to support The Bridge [The Bridge Restoration Ministry], as they are fighting back against this addiction crisis in real, measurable ways. We want to stop seeing lives lost and years wasted….We ask you to consider the cause of addiction, and to help restore lives through the Bridge.

You can also poke around their site to see success stories and the program. It’s a difficult year (duh!), especially for fundraising, as they had to significantly modify their annual banquet, and brought in just a fraction of the normal amount in 2020. That’s why we’re riding… 

Thanks for your consideration and your prayers!
