Pedal For Your Cause (PFYC) is a four day cycling tour that benefits a cycling non-profit organization, Assisted Cycling Tours, whose mission it is to get kids with disabilities and their families on bikes. Their goal is to promote family, well-being and independence for all of their participants.

As we enter our third year we are coming out with a new format, which will give participants a chance to experience what our programs offer those with disabilities.

PFYC got it's name, because we allow participants to raise funds and tell us where to spend them. For example, if you are passionate about a particular disability (e.g., Autism, Down Syndrome, TBI, etc.) you can designate any additional funds you raise to have ACT do programming for that particular disability.
