Cycle of Hope


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

together, we ride (sTILL)


To keep our community safe in the face of a health crisis, we’re bringing Cycle of Hope, a charity cycling ride benefiting Habitat for Humanity, to you this year, with the Cycle of Hope: Ride from Home. It means you can still make a difference – at a distance.

Cycle of Hope: Ride from Home gives participants a premier ride experience with a selection of custom courses, stacked swag bags, and an ongoing community of fellow cyclists. However, Ride from Home is done your own way on your own time –whether you’re outdoors on a curated Cycle of Hope course or one of your own design, indoors on a trainer, with friends, or on your own.

Just as you ride to support Habitat for Humanity, we’ll support you as you cross your personal finish line, achieve your fitness goals, and ride toward our shared purpose – to benefit Habitat’s mission to build homes, communities, and hope.

So, even as we’re apart – together, we ride.

Choose Your Course

sTEP 1: CHOOSE YOUR COURSE


Choose a course at your skill level – from Kids to Century and everywhere in between – in either Silicon Valley or the East Bay. Or, design your own course and ride from anywhere!

No matter how you ride, Ride from Home’s official ride app – Race Joy – promises a unique ride experience with turn-by-turn directions, the power to track your ride, opportunities to invite friends to follow your progress, hear from virtual spectators cheering you on, and get updates from the Cycle of Hope team to keep you riding!

sTEP 2: Register & Share


Once you’ve decided which distance you’re riding, it’s time to register!

Sign up to ride solo or as a team at a safe distance. Once you’re registered, it’s the perfect time to invite your friends and family to join you! Not only does it get more people pedaling for affordable housing – it can earn you exclusive referral perks, too!

Before you cross the start line, fire-up RaceJoy, our official ride app, to track your ride, get turn-by-turn directions, share your progress with friends, and hear from our cheer squad along the way!

After your ride, tune in for a finish line celebration on Saturday, October 24th to honor your hard work and all you’ve accomplished to support Habitat for Humanity’s mission.

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.
