Cycling for Scouts is a special event to help fund the Scout Scholarship program in the Cimarron Council, Boy Scouts of America. Scout scholarships are available for registered youth that require financial assistance with the purchase of uniforms, books or camping events within the Cimarron Council. In 2020, over 100 scouts received more than $5700 in financial assistance.
In addition to financial goals, all registered Scouting youth will be able to use the ride to earn advancement. Scouts BSA members that ride at least the 16 mile route can use their ride for one of the distance rides for the Cycling merit badge. Any staff member is able to sign off achievements.
Since the beginning of Scouting, Scouts have pledged 'to keep themselves physically strong.' Cycling is a part of each branch of the Scouting program and so we choose to focus on cycling to help achieve our financial goals.
