Helmet: Lazer O2 helmet, Jersey & Shorts: Craft, Specialized Touring Shoes, Socks: Darn Tough (VT Made!), Bike: Specialized Defy 3This picture perfectly captures my friend Caity Patey. She’s constantly in motion, most likely outdoors and always smiling. Caity’s love for the outdoors is rivaled only by her commitment to community service and this summer with Bike & Build she’ll be able to combine the two.
Leaving from Portsmouth, NH this June Caity and the Bike & Build team will ride across the country, stopping along the way to lend a hand on a number of affordable housing projects, eventually ending their journey in Vancouver, BC in August. Yup not only is Caity riding across the country (4,000 miles!) but along the way she’ll be working with organizations like Habitat for Humanity to make affordable housing a reality for more Americans.
The Important Part: Caity can’t take her first pedal stroke without you! Before she pedals off in June Caity needs to meet her fundraising goal. The money raised by each Bike & Build rider goes towards grants for affordable housing organizations and helps makes trip like Caity’s possible.
This is where you my wonderful readers come in. All I ask is that you visit Caity’s Bike & Build page and give what you can. After you give be sure and leave a comment below with your email address. It doesn’t matter if you give $1 or $100, everyone who donates will receive a little thank you gift!
Thank you in advance and “Ride Strong”!
