Our mission……Through service-oriented cycling trips, Bike & Build benefits affordable housing and empowers young adults for a lifetime of service and civic engagement.
What does this mean??? If you are looking for a super cool adventure and life changing experience, consider biking across the USA with Bike & Build this summer.
Each of our cross-country trips engages 36 young adults to pedal their bikes from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific over a 10-week period. While on the road, teams stop every fourth or fifth day to volunteer on a build site with organizations like Habitat for Humanity, Rebuilding Together, GRID Alternatives and YouthBuild.
(we have shorter trips too!)
In 2018 the schedule will include 3 cross country and 2 regional trips, including a brand new 3000 mile ride from the Florida Keys to Canada (using the East Coast Greenway). Most riders sign up for the adventure, however even more finish their trips passionate about community service and feeling Bike & Build was a life-changing experience.
Apply today at https://bikeandbuild.org. Applicants do not need to be avid cyclists, but rather free spirited, socially conscious young adults with a passion for service and adventure.
Plus, you come from a college or club and can sign up 3+ riders, we will waive the application fees plus offer a revenue share with your club!
There are different start/finish dates for our different trips
