About the Ride

why ride

The Bay Area sits at the epicenter of the housing crisis. Housing fills our headlines and our conversations. We see it playing out in our families, neighborhoods, and workplaces. But we’re not just here to talk about the housing crisis. We’re here to ride through it.

It’s time to change gears. We’ve got a hill to climb, and it’s going to take all of us to get to the summit. But the view from the top will be well worth it. That’s because we’re riding for a world where everyone has a decent place to live. We’re riding the make affordable homeownership a reality for hardworking families. We’re riding for the strength, stability, and self-reliance families build when they get a hand up from Habitat.

Cycle of Hope is all about exactly that — hope. It’s what comes of a community pushing together toward the same finish line. And when that happens, there’s nothing we can’t do. So, gear up. Together, we ride.
