Event Description: On July 29, 2010, 30 passionate young cyclists will descend on Portland as the culmination of their two-month cross-country pedal journey from Virginia Beach to Cannon Beach. These college-age students are participating in Bike & Build, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that organizes cross-country cycling trips to benefit the affordable housing cause in the United States. Since its inception in 2002, Bike & Build has involved over 1,000 young adults and has donated over $2.3 million to affordable housing charities to fund projects executed by young people. Not only do Bike & Build team members ride about 70 miles per day for two months, but they take 8-10 days off along the way to build houses.
