Be A Rider
We are currently accepting applications for the 2018 season. Early registration is from November 20th through December 3rd. Please apply during this time frame so we can do our best to get you on your preferred trip.
We accept any rider between the ages of 18 through 26 at the start of the summer. In 2018, you’re eligible to ride if you were born between May 1, 1992 to May 1, 2000.
Be A Leader
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.
Leader applications for 2018 are now open. All applications are due December 3rd by 11:59 PM EST, but preference will be given to applications that are submitted early.
If you are also interested and eligible to be a rider, you can apply for the rider lottery. Applying to be a leader in no way affects your odds in the rider lottery. If you are not selected as a leader, whatever slot you earn in the lottery is reserved.
Bike & Build accepts leader applications from individuals ages of 18 through 29. Accordingly, we’ll take applicants born between May 1, 1988 to May 1, 2000.
