Bike & Build
About the organization
Bike & Build is a nonprofit based in Philadelphia that organizes cross-country and regional cycling trips for young adults (ages 18-29) to benefit affordable housing.
Each summer we have 3 cross-country routes, and 1 regional route. Each team is made up of 30 or so folks, 4 of which are leaders. The teams bike, stopping every 3-5 days to build affordable homes with organizations like Habitat for Humanity, Rebuilding Together, YouthBuild, and more.
In preparing for the summer, our riders fundraise, volunteer with a local affordable housing organization, participate in discussions around affordable housing, and train on their bike.
Once on the road for the summer, our participants are responsible for being a team player, keeping up with cleaning, helping make dinner, setting up breakfast, driving a van/safety navigating a van, and so on.
Beyond that, Bike & Builders live the simple life. Wake up, eat, ride your bike, eat, sleep, and do it again the next day. Build days vary - some days you will be raising walls, roofing, landscaping, others you will be demoing, painting, or cleaning - we provide the volunteers & enthusiasm to get anything done.
