Cycle of Hope

Fri October 1 - Sun November 7
Cycle of Hope is one of California’s premier charity cycling events, combining a premium experience with a wonderful cause – benefiting Habitat for Humanity.
At Cycle of Hope, anyone can be a part of building more homes, community, and hope in the Bay Area with Habitat for Humanity! From little ones to century athletes, from cyclists gathered at the start line to folks joining in virtually. However you ride, you ride with a community of people building a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Together, we ride.

Whether you rode one mile or a hundred. Swam a lap or hiked a summit. Our 2021 Cycle of Hope-ers joined together as a community bonded by purpose. With every mile traveled and every dollar raised, you supported Habitat’s ability to impact the affordable housing crisis and for that, we cannot thank you enough.


We want to be able to offer the best event possible in future years, and there’s no better resource than our riders. Take a few minutes to tell us what you thought by completing our 2021 Cycle of Hope Rider Survey.

Cycle of Hope is true to its name – we are riding to help our neighbors create a feedback loop of promise. When you ride Cycle of Hope, you ride for Habitat for Humanity. You help families achieve affordable homeownership. You keep people in the homes they love. You educate and support those working toward financial wellness and better housing. You build paths out of homelessness. When you ride Cycle of Hope, you offer a hand up that helps families pull themselves out of a month-to-month struggle, a fear of displacement and substandard living conditions, and an unforgiving housing market. You create a foundation for families to invest in their futures, and build hope that reverberates for generations to come.
