Pregnancy resource centers are non-profit organizations who are committed to providing life-affirming resources to women and families in need, particularly those who are struggling in complicated or unplanned pregnancies.
These women are seriously in need of financial, physical, mental, and spiritual support and often feel unable to succeed during or after childbearing. Pregnancy resource centers provide alternatives to abortion that respect the dignity of the mother and her unborn child (Psalm 139:13-14).
These alternatives include free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, parenting classes, counseling, STI testing, baby supplies, and much more. Women tell of their experiences at these centers and express the joy and relief they feel upon realizing the support they are freely given from the staff and volunteers.

Pregnancy resource centers serve women, children, and their families by meeting them in their time of great need.
Every day in America, 3,000 women choose to have an abortion. As one director of a pregnancy resource center, or PRC, shared, the primary driver for a mother considering abortion is fear. The most common reasons for obtaining abortions are financial instability, relationship issues, and family pressure.
Many of these women obtain abortions without all the information and support needed at such a crucial time in their life. Our partnered centers tell us of countless women who regret their abortion, wishing someone was there for them in their time of need. Pregnancy resource centers fill the gap, serve those in need in their communities and beyond with love and hope.
From budgeting classes to maternity homestays to healthy behavior counseling, these centers aim to walk with women and their families far beyond the time of their pregnancy. Biking for Babies is blessed to partner with these centers to ensure they are financially sustainable and well-supported to be able to strengthen mothers, fathers, and children.
Each rider or support crew missionary is paired with a specific center to learn about their services, pray for during training and the ride, and share their stories locally as well as nationally.
Pregnancy resource center partners receive advocacy from their missionary as well as financial support to benefit their services and resources. Not only do we spread awareness and raise funds for their life-affirming work, but partnered centers play a vital role in forming our young adults through sharing the stories of lives saved and changed!
Much more than a mission trip, Biking for Babies equips young people with the tools to advocate and garner support for life in their communities. The young adults who participate with us are forever impacted and they take that with them after college and into their young professional community, recognizing the great need to advocate for life through pregnancy resource centers.
Together, pregnancy resource centers and Biking for Babies will build a world that responds to crisis with faith, hope, and love.
Applications for pregnancy resource center partnerships open in October 2021.

Biking for Babies has supported us through their generous donations collected during their mission trip across the country. One way those funds have been used is to allow a woman, considering abortion, to see her baby through an ultrasound. The ultrasound is a window; a confirmation that there is a living being inside of her and it allows the maternal bond to grow. Many of the items in our Crib Club store, such as cribs and car seats, have come from the support of Biking for Babies. A culture of life is on the move by a younger generation. Biking for Babies has allowed those seeking to be a part of this movement, a means to help. This organization allows others to see how there are many ways to advocate for the unborn and their families. Not only are they biking across the country in a physically demanding pursuit, but they are reaching out along the way to find new support and give God’s love to those they touch. We look forward to each and every year to see how much they have grown and meet the incredibly talented, self-giving team that inspires so many to help.

Biking for Babies has been a HUGE blessing to our Clarity Clinic/Pregnancy Center. The young adults who bike in the summer for God’s unborn babies are such an inspiration to all of us at the clinic. We are 100% donor supported and it is organizations like Biking for Babies who help us keep our doors open through the great works they do with their biking adventures every year. Our staff, clients, board, and volunteers are all blessed by this ministry of God, Biking for Babies!!! I really believe that God looks down on Nikki, as the Executive Director, and her staff and all the riders and He says, “Well done good and faithful servants!!! Thank you for being a light in the darkness and a voice for the voiceless for my unborn children!” We are so blessed and honored to be associated with such a great organization as Biking for Babies who helps us achieve our mission of helping women who are in unplanned or crisis pregnancies and their unborn children.
