Did the “Build” half of Bike & Build bring you to the organization? If so, you can’t go wrong with Southern United States (SUS). Riders on SUS spend the most hours volunteering along their journey, with upwards of 20 scheduled build days across the US. If direct service is the way you envision yourself making an impact, this route is for you.
Starting in Jacksonville Beach, SUS riders spend their first 2 weeks hugging the Gulf of Mexico en route to New Orleans. Riders then move on to Texas and then link up with historic Route 66 to head on to the best of the West – the Land of Enchantment, and two nights camping in the Grand Canyon. The team’s final build day is with one of Bike & Build’s favorite partners in Palmdale, CA (Antelope Valley YouthBuild). A few days later, they see the Pacific in beautiful Santa Barbara.
