DETROIT LAKES, Minn. – Motorists traveling on area roads are asked to
slow down and watch for bicyclists participating in a Habitat for
Humanity fundraiser for families in Manitoba, Canada.
Cycle of Hope volunteers left Louisville, Ky., on June 28 for a
two-week journey to celebrate the 20th Annual Cycle of Hope’s 1,000
Miles Home Challenge.
Bicyclists will travel into west central Minnesota on Thursday, July
11 as they travel from Willmar to Garfield on local city streets, as
well as county and state highways. On Friday, July 12 they will depart
Garfield and bike to Detroit Lakes.
Since 1993, the Cycle of Hope riders journey 1,000 miles and raise
enough money to enable Habitat for Humanity Manitoba to build a new
affordable home for a family in need. The Cycle of Hope has raised
over $2.5 million for Habitat for Humanity Manitoba since its
inception and looks forward to the annual challenge each year with new
and returning cyclists.
