Cycle of Hope: Ride from Home

Saturday, October 10 – Sunday, October 25, 2020
With routes starting from Silicon Valley and East Bay or your own neighborhood!

together, still we ride

Cycle of Hope looks a little different this year. As we shift gears to keep our community safe in the face of a health crisis, we’re bringing our event to you with the Cycle of Hope: Ride from Home.

We may not be gathering by the hundreds, but some things aren’t changing. You can still expect gorgeously-designed courses at every skill level – and the option to design your own – plenty of perks, a finish celebration to remember, and the chance to make real change in the housing crisis.

Most importantly, we’re still riding toward a common purpose: providing safe, decent, affordable shelter to more of our Bay Area neighbors. And we need all wheels on the ground to do it. So, even as we’re apart – together, we ride.

Cycle of Hope: Ride from Home offers a premier cycling experience for athletes at every level – and, now, every locale!

As always, Cycle of Hope offers participants courses that show off the best of the Bay – this year with gorgeously curated routes in the South Bay and East Bay. Or, you can design your own course anywhere! No matter how you ride, our official ride app –RaceJoy– ensures you won’t go solo. Stay tuned for more details and official course maps!

Why ride?

Last year, more than 1,000 riders, volunteers and community supporters raised critical funds to benefit Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley.

This year, while we’ll be riding together in spirit, the mission we’re riding for is more urgent than ever. We ride in the shadow of a pandemic that has kept us sheltered at home – and brought to the surface how many of our neighbors are housing insecure, on the brink of displacement, living in unsafe or unhealthy conditions, or simply have no home in which to shelter.

We ride for home. We ride for hope. We ride to bring more of both within reach of our neighbors, in an area where so few can afford a decent place to live, at a time when safe, healthy housing is desperately needed,

When you register and fundraise as part of the Cycle of Hope community, you’re building a Bay Area where everyone has a decent place to live.
