What is included in my fundraising efforts?

Your fundraising efforts will cover trip meals, accommodations, safety training, leader training and ride management. As a fundraising ride, your fundraising also will support Bike & Build’s mission to raise awareness for affordable housing and empower young adults for a lifetime of service and civic engagement.

Fundraising does not include travel to and from the ride location, snacks, a bike, and other gear.

Will I receive a bike?

Bike & Build will not be providing bikes for this ride. That-being-said, you are able to purchase a bike through our bike provider, State Bike Co., or we help you coordinate a bike rental.

What are the COVID-19 mitigation policies?

The health and safety of Bike & Build participants, build partners and overnight hosts is the top priority of the organization. Bike & Build will adhere to the up-to-date guidelines set by the CDC, and will require all riders and leaders to be fully vaccinated (including a booster shot if applicable) from COVID-19 within two weeks of their ride start date.
