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. But Cycle of Hope is about more than a ride. It’s about people, riders of all skill levels, coming together to raise support and awareness for Habitat for Humanity’s mission to build homes, communities, and hope. Together, we’ve raised more than $250,000 and counting! A special thank you to those riders who went above and beyond and fundraised to support Habitat’s work here in the Bay Area. Thank you, top fundraisers! Bob Frick Bob Nelson The Leftovers Board Riders Thank you, top recruiting teams!

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.
Ways to Get Involved (No Bike Needed)
Cycle of Hope is a ride for our community – bringing together people to ride toward a shared finish line – a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Benefitting, Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley, Cycle of Hope has many ways you can get involved. Riding isn’t the only way to make a difference. With our 2019 Cycle of Hope event approaching on November 3rd, here are a few ways you can get join in on the fun:
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.
What’s new at the 2019 Cycle of Hope!
While 2018’s Cycle of Hope was a memorable ride that raised more than $235,000 for Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley, we were just getting started. That means we’re taking lessons from our inaugural event – and great feedback from our inaugural riders – and we’re excited to give you a bigger, better ride this year. That means an improved riding experience for our cyclists and an even bigger impact on the housing crisis!
