A University at Buffalo student is on a serious mission this summer.

On Friday, Nick Czekaj, will begin biking across the country, helping build homes along the way with organizations like Habitat for Humanity.

Czekaj will pedal across nine states, stretching from North Carolina to Southern California.

"I don't like to stay idle and I'd really love to help people," said Czekaj. "I'm a political science and French major. I was always looking for a way to travel and benefit sustainable development."

Czekaj's journey will take about two months. He'll set off from Nags Head, North Carolina on Friday and arrive in San Diego, California on July 23rd.
