“The ride is both a physical challenge but more so a wonderful, uplifting, enlivening tour through our beautiful state of MN. It’s a great and worthy cause: decent, affordable homes in partnership with families in need of adequate housing.” –longtime Habitat 500 Rider

About Riding in the Habitat 500

The Habitat 500 is a bicycle ride (not race) and fundraiser that covers up to 500 miles over the course of several months.

This year, we’ll continue with virtual options, making your route and distance as flexible as you’d like; in addition, we’ll have an in-person event in Fergus Falls from July 14 – 17, 2022.

Virtual events will begin in the spring.


Riders must wear a helmet at all times while on a bicycle.

Please watch our safety video before starting your ride. Our sincere thanks to the committee members and volunteers who put the video together! Find the video here.

Habitat 500 Cancellation Policy

As an outdoor event, all aspects of the Habitat 500—food, entertainment, and events—are subject to weather and all registration fees are non-refundable for any reason, including weather-related cancellations, postponements of all or part of the activities associated with the Habitat 500 Bike Ride, unforeseeable circumstances, or riders’ personal conflicts or circumstances.

If you register and pay for the Ride and are unable to participate, your registration fee may be transferred to another rider, provided this is done at least two weeks prior to the start of the Ride. It is the responsibility of the rider cancelling their participation to find another rider to transfer their registration fee to. No registration fees carry over from year to year.

As stated in the Habitat 500 waiver signed during registration, each rider/volunteer’s participation in the event is subject to the sole discretion of Habitat Minnesota’s representatives. Should you be requested to discontinue your participation for medical, safety, or any other reason, you must immediately end your participation and carry out such directives as issue by Habitat Minnesota.
