Take meaningful climate and energy 
action and inspire yourself!

Join the National Bike Ride to Support Climate and Energy Solutions

Climate Ride is your chance to take important climate and energy action, while experiencing a unique cycling adventure in Northern California this September.

Climate Ride is a supported, 5-day charitable bike ride. The next ride, Climate Ride California, this September 21-25, 2010, begins under the soaring redwoods, follows the spectacular Mendocino coast, takes a turn through the Russian River wine country, and ends in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park at New Belgium's Tour de Fat, where more than 6,000 bike enthusiasts will greet us!

Along the way, you'll hear from compelling speakers and meet engaging Climate Riders, while raising funds for three organizations promoting a clean and green energy future. Proceeds from this charitable bike ride benefit non-profit organizations working on green jobs, clean energy, climate education and bicycle infrastructure. Read on for more details about this ride of a lifetime! And be sure to visit the FAQ (frequently asked questions).

Make a difference. Climate Ride is an opportunity to meet a community of like-minded people who are as concerned as you are by the threat of climate change and energy problems. By pedaling together, Climate Riders make an impact in the communities we ride through, among family and friends, and across the nation, through our targeted media outreach. Add your voice to the chorus of the Climate Ride community.

Fundraising made easy. Climate Ride helps support your fundraising efforts through an online portal and integrated social networking. Most Climate Riders are amazed at how easily they reach their fundraising goal. Fundraising can usually be accomplished in less than a month, and we have great incentives like free bicycles, helmets, and more.

You can do it! The mileages on Climate Ride are achievable through training, and support vehicles are always nearby if you need a break.

A vacation with meaning. Inspire your family, friends, and coworkers through your efforts to make a difference. Climate change is a global problem that requires a nationwide movement to create change. You can be the person in your community who takes an important stand on this critical issue by registering for Climate Ride California today!
