1400 Miles uses bikes and craft beers to spark difficult conversations with stubborn guys about prostate health.
PROSTATE CANCER IS THE SECOND LEADING CAUSE OF CANCER DEATH IN AMERICAN MEN and if detected early, can often times be treated successfully. Early detection is key and it starts with a conversation.
1400 Miles is a non-profit that probes the conversation on prostate health. As a organization, we are raising money in efforts to engage male audiences through content-based strategies using bikes and beer as the catalyst to be proactive about prostate health. 1400 Miles serves as a “get checked” pre-diagnosis organization.
In 2015, our two main goals we are working to get 1400 Men checked for prostate cancer! We will be hosting FREE PSA screenings during the Austin Community Ride. Also, we are currently working out details for a 4-day Men's Health Screening in Denver with our partners Pints for Prostates and Prostate Conditions Education Council (PCEC). More details coming soon!
Want to get involved? You can sign up for The Big Ride, participate in a Community Ride (dates and locations will be announced soon!), attend the events, support a Big Ride Rider or a Team!

What are people saying about 1400Miles?
Aaron Z. of NM
“1400 Miles isn’t just about men’s health, it’s about changing the tone of the conversation around it. It’s easier for me to join that conversation over a pint of my favorite craft beer.”
Rex R of Denver
Men are stubborn. 1400 Miles helps break the silence on prostate cancer by using a beer and a bike to reach men where they are most willing to talk.
Lindsey S. of Denver
1400 helped me find an approachable way to talk about a hard subject with the men I love.
Rick Lyke with Pints for Prostates
We’re reaching men through the universal language of beer and 1400 Miles got me back on a bike after 30 years out of the saddle. Is there anything craft beer — and bikes — can’t do?
