Explore Alumni Opportunities
Just because your trip is over doesn’t mean your involvement has to be. Bike & Build alumni can stay connected with the organization, the affordable housing cause, and their teammates across the country in so many different ways.
”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.Kristin AndersonME2SB'13
Every Rider, Every Year
As Bike & Build matures we seek to continue to allow new riders to raise funds that will be used exclusively to support their rides and generate donations for affordable housing. This is where you can make a powerful difference! In order to diversify our revenues, we are asking all alumni participate in Every Rider, Every Year by making an annual contribution to Bike & Build.
Bike & Build Alumni Council
The Bike & Build Alumni Council represents alumni issues to the organization and our Board of Directors. Active projects include interviewing alumni for our Bike Safety Advocacy, affordable housing projects, recruitment, rider spotlights, mentoring new riders, responding to natural disasters with emergency grants, and promoting the Bike & Build Scholarship Program.

Chris Webber Memorial Fund and Fellowship
Christopher H. Webber was a Trip Leader for Bike & Build’s 2005 Northern U.S. route and soon became the organization’s first Program Director. Chris was integral to Bike & Build’s growth and strengthened its programming through his combined passion for adventure and charitable efforts. Chris was 25 when he died of injuries sustained in a pedestrian accident in New York City in March of 2007.
To this day, Chris’s attitude, spirit, and energy inspires an annual fellowship to honor his dedication to Bike & Build. The award, a grant up to $20,000, funds affordable housing projects led by members of the Bike & Build family that encourage alumni to remain involved in the cause. The fellowship is supported through contributions and through Bike & Build’s annual Chris Webber Memorial Ride.
