On Sunday, Sept. 17, Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod is holding its sixth Annual Ride for Homes bike ride and welcomes new riders of all ages and levels to join in the fun.

All riders will start and finish at the Aptucxet Trading Post Museum in Bourne and have the option of riding a 40-mile scenic route to Woods Hole and back, a 20-mile route from the Aptuxcet Trading Post Museum along the Cape Cod Canal and around Mashnee Island, or a 12-mile route along the Cape Canal.

Following the Ride, stay for a complimentary BBQ with beverages, an ice cream truck, games, music, and prizes. Riders who raise more than $500 by Sept. 12 will be entered to win a Yeti Tundra cooler.

The registration fee for riders is $25, with a fundraising minimum of $300.

In 2022, 89 riders raised over $82,000 to help the organization bridge that funding gap. Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod’s work depends on the generosity of the Cape Cod community.
