Cycle of Hope combines passionate cyclists and a drive to help Habitat Manitoba build homes for lower income Manitoba families enrolled in the homeownership program.     

The Cycle of Hope team will travel by luxury motor coach from Winnipeg, MB to Little Current, ON, where the cyclists will start their ride to Niagara Falls, ON. The team will cross Manitoulin Island, visit Tobermory and the scenic lakeside communities along Lake Huron before heading eastward along the shores of Lake Erie. The final day of the ride will visit wineries in the Niagara-on-the-Lake region and conclude at Niagara Falls before heading back to Winnipeg.

This 12-day, supported journey is where cyclists challenge themselves by riding long distances through breathtaking scenery, offering the perfect mix of effort and reward.  

You can also sign up as support team volunteer on this two-week adventure. There is NO registration fee for volunteers. Volunteers are encouraged to fundraise and suggest a minimum of $250 for those new to the event. For more experienced fundraisers, please set your own minimum: $500, $1,000, or more!
