Cycle of Hope is at the start line of something new and exciting. Get ready to ride Cycle of Hope: Ride from Home!
Rather than gathering by the hundreds for a one-day ride, Cycle of Hope: Ride from Home is a multi-day event that offers participants a chance to ride when they want, where they want, and how they want.
CHOOSE YOUR DAY TO RIDE!
The official ride period is from Saturday, October 10, to Sunday, October 25.
Pick any day during that window and ride when it’s convenient for you!
Participants can access our welcome video to watch before taking off, then boot up our official ride app, RaceJoy, and get on the road!
Here are some things to think about when choosing your ride day:
- Weather and air conditions – earlier rides allow for cooler temperatures, and be sure to check PurpleAir.com to be mindful of air quality.
- Traffic – choose a time of day where you can anticipate safe riding conditions.
- Friends – if you’re riding with friends, make sure you coordinate a time when you can all safely ride.
Looking to complete your distance over multiple days? Whether you ride, run, walk, or hike – if you plan to reach your goal mileage in multiple sessions, we do not recommend using RaceJoy because the tracking and live audio messages will start over with each new session. Instead, use your favorite activity tracker or just enjoy the ride technology-free! Once you have reached your mileage goal, go here to submit your results manually.
TIME TO CELEBRATE YOUR RIDE!
During the October 10-25 ride period, join in celebrating your ride with other Cycle of Hopers by sharing photos and giving shoutouts in our Virtual Community and on social media! Connect with us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and share photos and highlights from your ride using the hashtag #TogetherWeRide. Your photos may be featured during our finish line celebration and could even earn you a prize!
Then, join our entire community for a one-of-a-kind VIRTUAL finish line celebration on Saturday, October 24th! Just tune in to our Virtual Community or Facebook page at 6 pm Pacific to earn prizes, hear stories of your impact, celebrate our ride’s leaderboard, and honor your hard work and all you’ve accomplished to support Habitat for Humanity’s mission.
