This summer, Sarah Hirschfeld decided to have a big adventure before buckling down to her studies to become a high school biology teacher. She joined Bike & Build, a nonprofit that organizes cross-country trips for young people, combining bicycling with building homes for low-income families.

During the trip, the cyclists stop in different cities to help build houses for needy families, usually in partnership with Habitat for Humanity.

Hirschfeld’s group left Portland June 16 and arrived in Santa Barbara in late August, a trip of 3,937 miles. After completing her trip, Hirschfeld answered some questions about her summer.
