CYCLE’s largest event of the year takes place in December, when it invites thousands of volunteers to build bicycles at the NRG Center in southeast Houston. The Build project takes place over five days, with morning, afternoon, and early evening shifts. CYCLE’s goal for 2020 is to build 10,000 bicycles.

CYCLE requests that volunteers make a minimum $40 donation to CYCLE to help raise funds to purchase the bicycles the students earn through hard work.
