Every year since 1993, the Cycle of Hope (COH) riders journey 1,000 miles
and raise enough money to enable Habitat for Humanity Manitoba to build a
new affordable home for a family in need. The Cycle of Hope has raised over
$2.5 million for Habitat for Humanity Manitoba since its inception and looks
forward to the annual challenge each year with new and returning cyclists.
Join the adventure! Cycle 1,000 miles (1,600 km) home with the Cycle of Hope! Join our group for this fully supported two-week journey from Omaha, Nebraska, through Rapid City, and onward home. Challenge yourself, see new sites and develop new friendships all while making a significant difference in a family's life.

On Saturday, July 12, 2014, the Cycle of Hope riders returned home after one of the most extraordinary rides in history. A parade of police cars escorted the riders safely to the Nairn build site where they were greeted by family, friends, Habitat staff and of course, the Habitat partner family who’s home they rode to raise money for. Although weary, the riders got a burst of energy as they reached their final destination.
It was a beautiful reunion as hugs were shared between families and riders. New friendships were formed as they prevailed through every type of weather imaginable and faced obstacles they will never forget. These amazing riders were able to raise a whopping $177,135! What more can we say, but thank you...from the bottom of our hearts.
