Why ride?

When you ride Cycle of Hope, you ride for more than a finish line. You ride as part of a community that shares one vision–a Bay Area where everyone has a decent place to live. You ride to benefit Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley’s work to provide everyone the chance at the strength, stability, and self-reliance of homeownership. Together we ride.

Everyone deserves a decent place to live

By riding Cycle of Hope, you’ll support Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley and put house keys in the hands of Habitat homeowners, bringing affordable homeownership within reach of hardworking families in the Bay Area.

That’s a finish line worth riding for.
