General Information for Participants


For information about riding: one-day and multi-day options, youth rides, fundraising, and the route, please visit the Rider page.

In previous years, overnight information and waivers were separate documents. These questions are now part of registration–you accepted the waiver when you registered unless someone else completed your registration for you; if that’s the case, please email to receive and complete your waivers!

Important Notes

If you don’t know your rider number, please email If you’re looking for a training schedule or safety tips, those can be found on our¬†FAQ page.

The Habitat 500 Bike Ride is open to riders ages 13+ (youth riders ages 13-17 must be accompanied by an adult) and there is no age requirement for virtual riders. Participants taking on the full Ride will have a passion for long distance biking, can manage to ride up to 100 miles per day, and are willing to fundraise for Habitat for Humanity locally and/or globally.


The Habitat 500 team sends out newsletters out each month from March through September each year. During April, May, and June, two newsletters will go out: one with information for registered riders and one with information for all Habitat 500 supporters.
