Mo-Hab Riders 21st Anniversary Ride in 2018!

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 20 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 21st Ride will begin close to the Mississippi River and take participants across the Chain of Rocks Bridge, follow Historic Route 66 to the north, and finish in Pontiac, Illinois. This ride will be on lightly-traveled, very low traffic rural roads, and several paved trails.
