Travis Southard: Back in the Saddle

In 2013, we featured Temple University student Travis Southard who along with 27 other bicycle riders travelled from South Carolina to California as part of Bike and Build’s effort to raise awareness about affordable housing. The 4256 mile trip took nearly 3 months and included 16 “build” days where the riders worked with Habitat for Humanity to build homes for deserving families.

Now Travis is teaming up with Bike and YouthBuild on a regional trip from Philadelphia, PA to Washington, D.C. The May 2015 trip will take a week to complete and include 3 “build” days. Follow Travis on his journey at:

Good luck Travis!
