That's what more than 100 participants in the four-separate Bike and Build tours are expected to do this summer.
The Bike and Build program recruits college students who raise at least $4,000 in pledges during the school year. In the summer, they take to the highways to spread the word about affordable housing, do more fund-raising, and work on selected Habitat for Humanity projects.
This summer, the nonprofit expects to raise $225,000; in the two previous summers, the group has raised $230,000.
All four of the tours are currently underway — three finish in the Pacific Northwest, the fourth in San Francisco. Each group is supported by a van and covers 40 to 70 miles a day. Most groups have 30 or so riders. They'll help to build houses in about 20 cities across the US.
