On June 12, as many as 30 youthful bicyclists will pedal into Boothbay Harbor promoting the cause of affordable housing.

Bike and Build combines bicycle touring with assistance to agencies such as Habitat for Humanity. The organization is an offshoot of the Yale University chapter of Habitat for Humanity.

Since 2003, the independent nonprofit with its home base in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania has offered a program that brings grants and hands-on assistance to local affordable housing projects as well as cross-country bike tours for youth between the ages of 18 and 26.
