Habitat for Humanity is a movement to build a world where everyone has a decent place to live. And Cycle of Hope takes “movement” literally – by getting our community moving for our mission.
Because Habitat is built on community. To increase access to homeownership and housing opportunity, we need our community. When you ride Cycle of Hope, you are that community.
In-person or virtual, one mile or a hundred, you are building a more just, equitable, sustainable, and vibrant Bay Area. With every mile traveled and every dollar fundraised, you are helping Habitat build more in Santa Clara, Alameda, and Contra Costa counties. You are building with Habitat families as they lay a firm foundation for the future. You are building with other Habitat supporters, bonded by purpose. Together, we ride.
You’re here because you’re a person who believes in setting your sights on a goal, and working hard to achieve it. You’re here because you want to feel great on your way to that goal. You’re here because you know we’re better together.
Habitat is here for all of that. We’ve got our sights on a world where everyone has a decent place to live, and we’re ready to roll up our sleeves and do the hard work to get there. That journey is fulfilling, fun, and inspiring. And the job only gets done because we’re in it together.
We’ve seen it borne out time and again in our 36-year history: we can achieve incredible things when we come together as a community. And this Cycle of Hope community is unique – our tools might be bicycles or running shoes, but we build real solutions to our housing crisis. We’re believers and we’re do-ers.
That’s the spirit that will build the way forward. A belief in the principles of justice and partnership, and the can-do attitude to build the community we aspire to. A faith in what families and communities can create with equity and opportunity, and the action that makes it more than a vision.
When you ride Cycle of Hope, you ride for a parent with an affordable mortgage, who can lift their thoughts past the end of the month and invest in the future. You ride for a child with the stability to memorize their home address for the first time. You ride for a senior who will age safely in the home and neighborhood they love. You ride for a couple who can stop worrying about debt and start saving for their first home.
We ride for a healthy housing ecosystem, equity and justice, a sustainable society, and a positive legacy to last untold generations. Together, we ride.
