Bike Tour Closes the Loop for Green Affordable Housing

Share this on:

Ride Green Build Green is an event organized by bicyclists to raise funds to build an affordable green-built home through Habitat For Humanity. Biking from Seattle to San Francisco, riders will enlighten the general public along the way about the need for affordable, energy-efficient homes for low-income families.rgbg-logo.jpg

Prior to the tour, each rider raises $2,000 to build a local, LEED-certified, affordable home.

During the 800-mile trek down the Pacific Coast, riders will volunteer at affordable housing projects with green initiatives and host awareness events.

Additional riders and donations are being sought by the dedicated group.

The bike tour is scheduled for July 25 through August 25, 2008. Visit the RGBG website here for more information.
