Thursday the 1,600 kilometer Cycle of Hope for Habitat for Humanity Manitoba wrapped up with the 46 riders who participated this year, and some past alumni and supporters joining in for the final leg from Portage to Winnipeg.

This year's ride took participants through the Rocky Mountains from Jasper to Waterton Lakes National Park, with all money raised supporting Habitat for Humanity Manitoba.

Many of those cyclists are from Southern Manitoba, including Nancy Bezan from the Roland area, who checked in with the Morning Show Thursday moments before hopping on her bike to head Winnipeg.

 

 

Also riding yesterday, his eighth Cycle of Hope, was Brian Dyck from La Salle. Morning show Co-Host Chris Sumner checked in with him too.

 

 

Keep in mind, before that final leg they rode through the Canadian Rockies from Waterton Lakes National Park to Medicine Hat. Thousands of dollars was raised in the process, with every dollar helping support the construction of a home for a family in need.

This was the Cycle of Hope's 24th year, and during its lifetime about 3 million dollars has been raised.
