'I want to ride my bicycle'

Sophomore cycles cross country

Over a five-year period, approximately 5 to 8 million people in the United States will experience at least one night of homelessness, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This summer sophomore Anne Dreyfuss experienced 70 while riding her bike cross country to raise money for affordable housing causes.

“I got to experience not having a home for two months, living with everything I had in one little bag,” she said. “There are people in the country who have to do that every single day, and it’s a hard lifestyle.”

Dreyfuss was one of 30 participants ages 18-25 year olds to bike cross-country from Providence, Rhode Island to Seattle, Washington with Bike and Build, an independent nonprofit organization.

“We were like one big dysfunctional family by the end of the trip,” she said.
