What is the Tour de Habitat?             group

The Tour de Habitat is an indoor cycling event and carnival.  The physical goal of the event is for teams to keep a stationary bike spinning for 90 minutes.  To helps with this goal, cycling instructors form the Rochester Athletic Club lead the cyclists on a ride set to music to keep the excitement up.  Your team decides how long each member rides and up to six teammates can ride.  The fundraising goal for the event is to raise $500+ per bike to go towards making a family's dreams of homeownership come true.

 

Who Should Participate?

Adults and teens of all ages and cycling abilities can participate in the ride.  If you are interested in riding the whole 90 minutes then you can sign up without a team.  If you are new to cycling then grab a bunch of friends and have a team.  With a team of six, each person need only ride 15 minutes.  This might be a great way to start cycling!  Teens will need to have a guardian agree with a consent form.

 

What do I do when I'm not biking?team

This year's event is going to be held in the Neighborhood at the RAC.  This family friendly, fun filled area provides a lot of options for things to do when not on the bike.  There will be planned activities that are part of the competition and will bring the competition to all age groups.  Other activities are just plain fun.  Your paid registration will allow you access to all the carnival events including the bounce house and giant slide.  Get the whole family involved!  Prizes will be awarded for the best performance at each competitive activity.  The overall team with the best performance in the competitive events will also be awarded.

After the ride there will be a reception to thank all that participated, hand out awards and eat cake!

 

What's in it for me?

Besides the physical high of an exciting workout, and the mental high of raising money to help a family get a simple, decent, and affordable home, there are prizes awarded to teams that are the high fundraisers and best spirit on the day of the ride. 

Reach the fundraising goals before the event to be eligible for fabulous prizes and your choice of bike position at the event.
