NSW Bike for Bibles 2021

I'm raising funds for the Bible Society and I'd love your support.

Dear Friends,

I'm fundraising for the Bible Society by challenging myself to ride 350km (maybe more!) over three or four days. The funds I raise will support Bible Society's Bible-based Literacy project in Pakistan.

More than half of all Pakistani women are illiterate – 80 percent in rural areas. The gift of literacy is incredibly valuable because it provides a stronger financial and spiritual foundation for families, and can transform lives. That’s why Bible Society Australia is helping illiterate women by supporting Bible-based literacy classes in rural communities.

For a woman, learning to read means being able to read the Bible for the very first time. Each student will receive her own copy of the New Testament in Urdu.

Please don't feel obligated to donate, but anything you are able to give for this cause will be most appreciated.


Thank you to my Sponsors

Hi Ian Met in the bike shop today. This ride will be on my bucket list for next year. Hope all goes well for you on your mission to bring scripture to Pakistani women. As a scripture teacher in Oz I fully understand the importance of spreading the Word. Will pass on your regards to Paul and Lois. Cheers Brad
