All riders must check in at Rest Stop #2 and the overnight location. 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.

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.
