Pedal to build a cycle of hope.
Raise money and awareness for Habitat for Humanity.
Participate in the Habitat 500 Bike Ride.
Now in its 27th year, Habitat 500 is a 6-day, 500 mile bike ride that raises funds and awareness for Habitat for Humanity. Coordinated by Habitat for Humanity of MN, the ride visits Habitat affiliates, build sites, and partner families.
This year, the ride begins and ends in Hermantown, and we would love to have a strong team riding for WLSHFH!
3-day and 1-day options are also available, each with a shorter total distance.
- 1-day Ride (Loops on Sunday, July 14 or Tuesday, July 16)
- 3-day Ride (Sunday, July 14 through Tuesday, July 16 or Wednesday, July 17 through Friday, July 19)
- 6-day Ride (Sunday, July 14 through Friday, July 19)
We are basing this year's Ride around three home base communities. This allows us to alternate between loop days and travel days to the next community. Each of the loop days will offer different distance options--a standard day's distance of approximately 70 miles, and a long loop that will allow riders interested in riding the full 500 miles the ability to do so in six days.
Each rider raises funds from family, friends, businesses, and church groups and designates the Habitat for Humanity affiliates they wish to support (both locally and around the world). This ride is coordinated and hosted by Habitat for Humanity of Minnesota.
We limit participation to 135 riders. Each rider is required to pay a registration fee and raise funds.
- $400 (Regular, 6-day Ride)
- $300 (Early-bird and all 1st year riders, 6-day Ride)
- $200 (3-day Ride)
- $100 (1-day Ride)
Fundraising: 6-day or 3-day riders must raise a minimum of $500, and 1-day riders must raise at least $250.
