Welcome! In July 2014, Tim and Debbie Bishop began cycling across America from Oregon in support of TheHopeLine. After 4,344 miles, they came to an abrupt end in East Troy, Pennsylvania, with a broken arm.
Enjoy the best photos and blog posts from TheHopeLine Tour of 2014 and please consider pledging some support to TheHopeLine, which in 2013 intervened in the lives of over 3,000 youth struggling with suicidal thoughts. Won’t you help in raising $100,000 to provide hope and help for young people in crisis?

We are absolutely sure that God has blessed us with meeting you! It could only have been him that led us to say hi to two bicyclers that just happened to be on that ranch exit in Montana a few short months ago. And we thought we were measuring for signage for the barn! It was our third trip there. We are amazed by your tenacity, obedience and purely the passion that was placed in your hearts to make a difference!!Looking forward to getting to know you both better!!!Have so enjoyed following your journey on the hopeline site. Blessings, Tom and Brenda
Thanks, Tom and Brenda. You entered onto the scene “stage right,” just as we were about to navigate one of the more dangerous stretches of road on our entire trip. We know you were meant to be part of the act! Thanks for heeding that still small voice, for advising, stopping, waiting, and encouraging. For those who missed this divine encounter, you can read about it here: https://openroadpress.com/rough-riding/.
