Meet Mae – Your Personal Fundraising Coach!
Hello, Cycle of Hopers! My name is Mae Pennington, and I’m your fundraising coach. While you can count on me to take the mystery out of fundraising and give you the tools to raise support for affordable housing, today I wanted to share my own Cycle of Hope story.
Meet Harold! A 2020 Rider & Fundraiser
Some people ride Cycle of Hope to challenge their physical limits. For Harold DeGuzman, Cycle of Hope is a chance to challenge the status quo, as well. “I realize that the reality of homeownership for a lot of people, especially in the Bay Area, is not a reality at all,” says Harold. By riding Cycle of Hope and raising funds for Habitat, Harold is doing his part to change those circumstances.

What is Cycle of Hope: Ride from Home?
Last year, riders, volunteers, and community supporters gathered by the hundreds at the start line of Cycle of Hope, a charity cycling event benefiting Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley. Together, this Bay Area cycling community rode to raise critical funds that help Habitat for Humanity work toward the ultimate finish line – a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Thanks to You, More Families Can Cross the Ultimate Finish Line!
Much like our Cycle of Hope benefit cycling event, the journey to homeownership is filled with milestones, joy, and an eagerness to cross that finish line. Now, thanks to more than 730 cyclists and countless volunteers and supporters, more Bay Area families are able to reach their ultimate finish line – achieving strength, stability, and self-reliance through homeownership. We are so thankful for our cycling community who came together to ride and support our vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
What to Expect on Ride Day!
Cycle of Hope is just around the corner, and we could not be any more excited to share with riders all that awaits them come November 3rd! Here’s a little sneak peek at what you can expect at the 2019 Cycle of Hope.

Habitat Homeowner turn Habitat Rider
We often talk about Cycle of Hope as two journeys in a single ride. Our cyclists ride not just for the journey they’ll take, but also for the journey they chart for families here in the Bay Area. Families working to build futures on the firm foundation of affordable homeownership. When a cyclist rides Cycle of Hope, every push of the pedal takes us further on each journey.
