Information regarding Patrick Wanninkhof's Accident

Dear members of the Bike & Build community,

Early this morning, Maine to Santa Barbara trip leader Patrick Wanninkhof was struck and killed by a vehicle while riding in Oklahoma. Patrick was an avid cyclist and musician and came to Bike & Build after serving for 3 years with Teach for America. He had recently completed his Masters in Teaching Adolescent Physics. His sister, Suzette, completed Bike & Build’s South Carolina to Santa Cruz trip in 2014.

Bike & Build’s priorities in the aftermath of this tragedy will be to support and work with the Wanninkhof family and the ME2SB trip according to their needs, as well as pass on all pertinent information as it becomes available.
