Bike Ride for Humanity

Dozens of generous and adventurous bikers are hitting the roads of Indiana this week for a great cause.

The 4th Annual "Cover Indiana" bicycle tour kicked off today in South Bend raising money for Habitat for Humanity.

Riders are using the bike ride to raise awareness about Habitat an organization that helps families in need build and own their own homes.

This year, 65 riders from across the state are participating in the seven day event.

They are starting in three locations across the state and will end their ride in Indianapolis on Saturday.

Elvie Vontrager is biking for Habitat and she says, “This is a program that helps people that would never be able to buy a house otherwise and it helps people buy their own home, they pay for it, but it gets them into home ownership and in taking responsibility.”

Habitat for Humanity is always looking for volunteers.
