Cycle of Hope

July 12 – 23, 2021 

Cycle of Hope is Habitat for Humanity’s longest-running, signature fundraiser which raises money to help a family build strength, stability and self-reliance through affordable home ownership. This year the team will be riding close to home and exploring the world famous, road-side attractions that Manitoba has to offer.  

Cyclists will enjoy a 12-day, fully supported, adventure throughout Western and Southern Manitoba. The route includes daily roadside attractions, unique historical sites and even some adventurous activities. It will be an incredible and rewarding adventure that most Manitoban’s have never experienced.

Your fundraising efforts will help a Habitat family build strength, stability and independence.
