Cycle of Hope July 17 – 28

Since 1994, Cycle of Hope has combined passionate cyclists and their drive to help Habitat Manitoba build homes for low-income Manitoba families enrolled in the homeownership program.     

This year, the Cycle of Hope team travelled by luxury motor coach to Manitoulin Island, ON, where the cyclists started their ride to Niagara Falls, ON. Their 800 km route took them along the scenic shores of Lake Huron, Georgian Bay and Lake Erie before passing the incredible wineries in the Niagara-on-the-Lake region.

The team received overwhelming support from the communities along their route and are extremely grateful for the support of:
