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.

Cycle of Hope gives you the chance to create serious change on a serious issue, by raising the funds Habitat needs to raise walls. And you’ll raise so much more than walls. You’ll raise hope –a community’s hope for a strong foundation, a child’s hope for a stable home, a parent’s hope to invest in her family’s future. Fundraising is easier than you think, and it’s even easier with a turnkey fundraising page and plenty of support. Our top fundraisers can even earn VIP treatment on ride day and big-ticket prizes. All fundraisers earn a community changed for the better.


You’re riding for a cause, but there’s no cause for concern – you’ll get a premium experience. Riders will be treated to a host of amenities that will set Cycle of Hope apart as the premier cycling event on your calendar. Get ready for a terrific finish line celebration, with great local food, beer, and musicians. Of course, we’ll take care of you along the way, too, with route-side entertainment, delicious food at your aid stations, and even the option to take a breather and get hands-on with a Habitat building activity. We’ll give you 5-star treatment while you give back.
