About the Ride

GET READY FOR THE RIDE OF OUR LIVES

That’s right. By participating in Cycle of Hope, not only are you getting the ride of your life, but a ride that affects all our lives. That’s because Cycle of Hope will help Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley to make affordable homeownership a reality for hundreds of hardworking families in one of the world’s most challenging housing markets. With every push of the pedal, you’ll invest in the future of a vibrant, engaged, prospering community, and in the strength, stability, and self-reliance of local families.

No matter your route, Cycle of Hope promises a memorable riding experience, one that will stay with you long after you cross the finish line. And more than that – it’s an experience that will make a permanent mark on our community.
