Habitat for Humanity of Yolo County is planning a bike ride to take place Saturday, May 22nd as a means to raise awareness about affordable housing and the urgency to eliminate substandard housing. Additionally, it will raise much needed funds for the duplex unit that is currently under construction in the Heidrick Ranch area of Woodland. Two deserving families have been selected for these homes.
The bike ride will have two separate starting points- one in Davis (1st Baptist Church on Russell Blvd.) and the other in Woodland (Presbyterian Church on Gibson Rd.) and both will meet up at the half-way point in Winters. The ride is approximately 20 miles round trip from the Davis starting point and all riding levels are welcome- this is a great family event! Pre-registration is $20 per person, and the cost will go up to $25 the day of the event. Groups of 10 or more bike riders will only pay $15 per person. All participants will receive a t-shirt and there will be free refreshments and entertainment provided by Black Cat Bone at the half-way point in Winters. Registration can be done online at www.habitatyolo.org.
Habitat for Humanity of Yolo County is a local non-profit housing organization that was established in 1993 as an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. HFHYC partners with people from all walks of life to build decent, affordable homes for families in need with the ultimate goal of eliminating poverty housing worldwide. HFHYC has built homes in Davis and Woodland and is not a give-away program; homeowners invest hundreds of hours of their own labor into building their Habitat home.
