THE BRONX - A group of 30 bicyclists from around the country rode from Maine to New York to raise money and awareness for affordable housing causes.

As part of the three-week journey through the New England region, the group stopped in the South Bronx Tuesday to help renovate a community garden at Patterson Playground.

Bike and Build is a national nonprofit organization that encourages young adults to address the country's affordable housing problems through organized bicycle trips. It has raised $5.8 million since it began in 2003.

The group met with Rebuilding Together NYC to revitalize the garden.
