Habitat 500


2021 Habitat 500: Bike @ Home

Registration for Habitat 500 2021 is OPEN! Our Habitat 500: Bike @ Home is our most accessible event yet! No biking experience needed, no mileage requirements or fundraising minimums, and the ability to bike whenever you have the time in 2021!

The 2021 Habitat 500: Bike @ Home celebrates the 29-year history of the Habitat 500 Bike Ride while participants bike in their own communities. In 2020, we invite participants to cycle any time between registering and September, for as many miles as they would like! Each rider pays a registration fee and also 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).

During the week of July 11 - 17, online events and activities will be held for riders to participate in.

This ride is coordinated and hosted by Habitat for Humanity of Minnesota.

Registration Fee: $50/$150/$300

Fundraising: There are no required fundraising minimums this year. We suggest a minimum of $500 for those new to the event. For more experienced fundraisers, set your own minimum: $1,000, $2,500, or beat your past goal!

A key component of the ride is to raise awareness about the need for decent, safe, affordable housing.

Thank you for joining us on our Habitat 500 ride in 2020. Kevin, Cassidy, Scott and Ruth Ann collectively pedaled 1,500 miles from May through September. Their goal was to raise $30,000 in honor of our 30th Anniversary. Thanks to your generosity, we were able to raise $24,700! Those gifts went towards the Svoboda family build in Brainerd, which we are hopeful to start in 2021!
