Monthly Themes:

Each month, leading up to our official in-person ride events on July 14-17, Habitat celebrates a monthly theme! Participate in monthly challeneges, meet other riders during virtual events, and win fun prizes all summer long.

  • April: 30 Days of Biking – Can you commit to cycling every day in April? Challenege yourself to reach cycling goals, recruit a ride team, share tips and tricks in our community Facebook group, begin training for the July events, and/or track your miles via Strava to race other Habitat 500 participants from afar. 
  • May: 31 Days of Fundraising –  Whether you’re a seasoned expert or a brand-new fundraiser, we’re here to support you as you raise funds this month (and all season). Now is the time to share your fundraising page on social media, send letters or emails, or talk to past donors about your 2021 fundraising.
  • June: 30 Days of Habitat – Better connect with why you Ride! Volunteer on a Habitat build site, donate to or shop at a local ReStore, connect with your local Habitat office, learn about affordable housing advocacy efforts, and hear Habitat families impact stories. 
  • July: 31 Days of Celebration – As we near our in-person ride events on July 14-17, July becomes the race to the finish line. Now is the time to complete your mileage and fundraising goals so you can celebrate, thank your donors, and share your newly made memories online.

Bingo Cards

The Bingo card is a great way to try new things, meet goals, and have a little fun along the way. If you get a Bingo, share a photo of your card with us online, by email or in-person! You might just win a prize.

Roadside Attractions

A virtual bike ride has all of our riders exploring new routes! Need some fresh ideas on where to go? Try finding one of these roadside attractions in your state or a neighboring one!

The Legendary Cheese Sandwich

Ride volunteers Susan, Julie, and Jan are notorious for making the BEST cheese sandwiches. We asked them to share their recipe! We promise, nothing tastes better after a long ride, than the legendary cheese sandwich.

Hammy the Hammer

Sometimes we all need a riding buddy: meet Hammy!

In a typical year, our hammer friend is busy traveling around to different Minnesota build sites, but this year he’s tagging along for the Ride! He’s being sent out to all of the Habitat 500 Riders in their ride packets to explore the world. Lose your copy of Hammy? Get another one here!
