Join Adventure Cycling Association on Climate Ride, the epic 5-day pedaling adventure in California! The best part is that you can help Adventure Cycling Association while you're doing it! Right now we're recruiting members for our new team on the California ride and for the NY to DC ride in September. You can be part of the fun and raise funds to support our mission and programs at the same time.
Climate Ride California is a 5-day, fully-supported bicycle ride from Fortuna to San Francisco under towering redwoods, through the Russian River Wine Country, and along Adventure Cycling's Pacific Coast Bicycle Route, one of the most scenic coastlines in the world. You can set your sights on touring the California coast this May 19-23, 2013.
Climate Ride is more than a bike trip, it's an inspiring journey with 150 like-minded people who are united by their passion for sustainability, renewable energy, and bicycles -- the ultimate carbon-free form of transportation. Climate Ride also features an acclaimed nightly-speakers series, known as the 'green conference on wheels,' where we hear from bright minds in policy, advocacy, and innovation.
Everyone who has participated in Climate Ride raves about the tour as a 'life-changing' and 'eye-opening' experience. You can enjoy this great event, while supporting Adventure Cycling Association's mission. Climate Ride has opened up beneficiary choices so now you can choose to support Adventure Cycling specifically with your fundraising dollars. If you select us as your beneficiary when you register or join our team, we will be the recipient of the funds you raise, which means our efforts will gain even more traction in the future.
Registration for Climate Ride is $75 (which includes a beautiful jersey and more), and then you raise at least $2,400 to participate in the five-day, all-inclusive event. The ride is fully-supported by a team of talented leader-hosts, bike mechanics, medics, and massage therapists. Climate ride is also one of the 'greenest' multi-day charity ride events in the world.
When you sign up, you'll be joining many other people who want to do something to help create a better future for us all. Climate Ride is a great way to get involved and experience an amazing adventure powered by your own energy. The best bet is to sign up early so you have time to fundraise and train, and because spots fill up fast!
