Be A Leader

Leader applications for cross-country and regional trips are open until October 1st!

Bike & Build Trip Leaders are the glue that holds teams together. The role is extremely rewarding but demanding. We rely on exceptional young adults with strong peer leadership qualities for these positions.

If you are also interested and eligible to be a rider, you can make note of that in your application. Applying to be a leader in no way affects your odds in securing a rider position. If you are not selected as a leader, whatever rider position you are assigned is reserved.

Bike & Build accepts leader applications from individuals ages of 18 through 29.

First, read the job description for the position. Make sure you know what to expect, and then decide on your route. After you done those things, leave your contact info below so you’re the first to know when applications open!

I loved having conversations with my coworkers and townspeople about affordable housing, costs of living, and how they grew up. You can learn so much about people who may have different beliefs than you do in a very positive and educational way.
