Cycle of Hope, Habitat for Humanity's annual benefit ride, is coming up on October 23, 2022, in Los Altos Hills!

Cycle of Hope brings together hundreds of cyclists – along with the runners, walkers, hikers, and more that join in for our Virtual DIY option– to raise awareness and funds for Habitat for Humanity.

Join us for a Century, Metric Century, Intermediate, Starter, or Kids’ ride on October 23, 2022 at our new venue - Foothills College in Los Altos Hills, or virtually from anywhere between October 1-23!

No matter how you participate in Cycle of Hope, you’ll impact the lives of families who partner with Habitat to build better foundations, brighter futures, and stronger communities.

Virtual DIY 

Our Virtual DIY option is great for participants looking to participate from anywhere at any time between October 1 and 23. Our Virtual DIY-ers will set their own distance goals and meet them however they like! This means you get maximum flexibility and creativity to participate YOUR way in Cycle of Hope.

  • Maybe you hike 40 miles over one weekend.
  • Maybe you run a marathon on a single day.
  • Maybe you make it a relay and get a group of friends to each walk 10 miles until you hit 100 miles.
  • Maybe you cycle that Century distance, but break it up over a few sessions.
  • Maybe you complete your ride at home on a stationary trainer.
  • Maybe live stream yourself hula hooping for an hour straight.

Maybe a physical challenge isn’t your thing. You can still participate in Cycle of Hope as a fundraiser. Access to a personal fundraising coach makes asking for donations easier than you think, and no registration is needed!

Here’s how to start a virtual fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity:

  • Click here to go to
  • Go to the "Donate" button in the top right-hand corner
  • Under “Select a fundraiser to donate to a cause,” click on the button that says "Become a fundraiser."
  • You'll see a page that says Become A Fundraiser, which is where you can customize your fundraising page with a personal goal, story, and much more.
  • Click "Set Up Fundraiser" to complete the setup of your fundraising page!
  • Be on the lookout for an email with your fundraising page details and a personalized link to share with your family and friends to get started!

As with the construction of a Habitat home, volunteers are the backbone of Habitat’s Cycle of Hope. Cycle of Hope volunteers are critical to the event experience, helping us with tasks like:

  • Rider Packet stuffing and mailing
  • Pre-Event Packet Pickup
  • Event Setup
  • On-Course Water Stations
  • Course Marshals
  • Bike and gear check
  • Food and refreshments
  • Family activities
  • Safety and Sanitation
  • Direction and Hospitality
