On May 6-12, 2018, experience some of the best backroads in Indiana for a cause: affordable homeownership through Habitat for Humanity.
Details for 2018 are still being finalized, though the date is set. Check the ride website for latest details.
Cover Indiana is an annual weeklong bicycle tour through Central Indiana. It was created in 2004, by HFH of Indiana to raise money and awareness for the mission of Habitat for Humanity in the state, as well as establish community among the many Habitat affiliates in Indiana.
Years later the goals are largely the same, although many people ride on ‚ÄúCover‚Äù who have no previous affiliation with Habitat or the state of Indiana.
Riders will depart Lafayette for a week-long, 400-mile journey through the state. Along the way the group will overnight in churches and a community center. Habitat affiliates in the 'overnight' communities will host the party, providing dinner, breakfast the next morning, and a warm, safe place to sleep. Cyclists will be supported by two ‚ÄúSAG‚Äù vans that will be available to provide first aid, assistance with flat tires, refreshments, etc. The towns the group will stay in include Crawfordsville, Terre Haute, Linton, Bedford, Ellettsville, and Indianapolis.
Each week-long cyclist is required to pay a registration fee, as well as raise at least $350 of support. Each rider will then designate the money they raise to a Habitat affiliate of their choice. Those who can‚Äôt ride for a week are welcome for a day or however long they would like to ride.
