together, we ride

Cycle of Hope, the Bay Area’s premier cycling event, promises a gorgeous course and a satisfying challenge at every skill level, plus the chance to change lives. Because while the Bay Area’s housing crisis is an uphill climb, you’re riding to benefit Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley. You’re riding hundreds strong, and there’s nothing we can’t do as a community. Together, we ride.

Cycle of Hope Startline
COVID-19 Response


A crisis like this puts things in perspective. As we shelter in place, we’re reminded of what matters. And among those necessities, we see more than ever how essential is home. And how vital is hope.

We plan to proceed with Cycle of Hope 2020 on Sunday, October 25th. In light of the current pandemic, however, we are actively planning for adjustments like vigilant sanitation procedures, a hygiene-conscious food service, staggered starts, and more.

We’ll keep you updated by posting the most current crisis response information and procedures here. Until then, remember why we ride. We ride for home. We ride for hope. And we’ll do it together.

Bay Area Ride Courses

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.

Just as Cycle of Hope supports our riders from the moment they register with perks like fundraising tips to SAG support along the course, Habitat for Humanity provides that same “hand up” and support to help families find the strength, stability, and self-reliance they need to thrive for years and generations to come.

Sharing in Habitat’s vision a world where everyone has a decent place to live, Cycle of Hope believes everyone – even cyclists – can make a difference in the lives of Bay Area families.
