Bike & Build was a nonprofit organization founded in 2003 to engage young adults in service-oriented cycling trips to raise awareness for affordable housing. For 20 years, riders carrying Bike & Builds’ “House and Spokes” took to the roads, transforming thousands of lives and touching hundreds of communities across the country in the process. In 2023, we hung up our bike but our community and our cause continue to live on. Thank you for doing your part in pedaling for affordable housing.

Bike & Build is by far the most challenging, rewarding, unbelievable experience I've ever had. I can't imagine my life now without having done it.

All of a sudden you have this incredible network of people in your life, all aligned with the same values. And it’s not just riders, but hosts, families that would provide meals, organizations that let us do work for them, even though they had to put a lot of energy into coordinating us… These are all people who no matter where they came from all came together around this cause. Everybody values that spirit of going on this adventure to do that work.

I consider them my family. The bond we share is so unique and special I can’t compare it to anything else.

Bike & Build changed my life. I am a different person than I was last May. I am more confident, more self-assured and self-reliant. I have a growth mindset. I am so incredibly grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this program.
