Buddhist Bike Pilgrimage 2022

The 2022 pilgrimage is past. We are wrapping up the photos and final survey. Create an account to stay in touch for monthly community rides.

Celebrating 20 years of bicycle pilgrimages!

DharmaWheels started in 2002 by cyclists who wanted to ride their bikes with a few friends from San Francisco Bay Area to Abhyagiri in Mendocino County – it has grown a lot since then, you can read more about who we are here.

DharmaWheels events are unusual. We have novice, intermediate, and experienced cyclists. We have advanced spiritual practitioners mixing with people dipping their toes in the water. We offer a rolling community traveling to spiritual destinations. We charge no fees. It’s a particular flavor of experience you won’t find anywhere else.

The Buddhist Bicycle Pilgrimage runs on a volunteer basis. There are no salaries and no fees. Participants offer food, supplies, service, metta (loving kindness) and monetary donations for our journeys. We have almost zero expenses so nearly 100% of your dana goes to the monastic sangha.
