5 great COURSEs


On November 3rd, more than 730 riders embarked on five courses that took them across some of the most scenic parts of the South Bay. Check out the routes participants overcame at the 2019 Cycle of Hope:

  • Kids’ Course: Our Kids’ Course gave our youngest cyclists up to age 10 the chance to be a part of the action.
  • 12-Mile Beginner Course: This course was perfect for novice riders and those looking for a low-intensity ride.
  • 32-Mile Intermediate Course: A course or those who wanted a satisfying challenge.
  • 62-Mile (Metric Century) Course: For riders ready for a bigger challenge, the metric century was just that plus some breathtaking hills and valleys of the South Bay.
  • 100-Mile (Century) Course: The hardcore cyclist didn’t want to miss the 100-mile Century – it was a journey through incredible climbs that drop into beautiful descents through the South Bay.

Why ride?


The more than 730 riders at the 2019 Cycle of Hope rode for more than a finish line. They rode as part of a community that shares one vision–a Bay Area where everyone has a decent place to live. Together, they raised funds and awareness to benefit Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley’s work that provides everyone the chance at the strength, stability, and self-reliance of homeownership. Together we ride.

Everyone deserves a decent place to live

By supporting 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.
