The MO-Hab Riders have been bicycling to create awareness and raise funds for Habitat for Humanity since 1998. Each participant in the multi-day fundraising ride is required to raise a minimum of $100 for Habitat for Humanity. Every year, the congregation of Manchester UMC and other supporters have been very generous. As a result, the church has met or exceeded its financial goals for Habitat for the last 21 years, helping to build 27 homes.
For many years, the group has completed their fundraising ride across Missouri, mostly on the KATY Trail. However, the 2018 Ride began close to the Mississippi River and took participants across the Chain of Rocks Bridge, followed Historic Route 66 to the north, and finished in Pontiac, Illinois. This ride is on lightly-traveled, very low traffic rural roads, and several paved trails.
Mid-March – Training rides begin. Our Training Schedule will be available soon.
