Support Adventure Cycling Association while experiencing the ride of a lifetime!
Adventure Cycling is participating in Climate Ride California, a 5-day, fully supported ‘green conference on wheels’ where people who care about sustainability, renewable energy, and bike advocacy pedal together to make a difference.
We will be riding the Northern California coast from Eureka to San Francisco, May 19-23. We encourage members and supporters of the Adventure Cycling community to join us on these rides and help us fundraise for the U.S. Bicycle Route System.
Last year, Adventure Cycling joined the Climate Ride beneficiaries list for the California ride and received a $2,962 grant, thanks to fundraising efforts by Climate Ride participants. This year, we will benefit from Climate Ride California in May, and September’s NYC to DC ride.
Registration is $75, and each participant will raise at least $2,400 to ride in the five-day, all-inclusive event. Those who raise funds and designate Adventure Cycling as a beneficiary will directly support our nonprofit mission and programs, specifically the development of the U.S. Bicycle Route System.
If you’re interested in joining our team, sign up early, because spots will go fast!
You won’t be doing it alone.
In addition to all the support you’ll get from Climate Ride for fundraising and riding, you’ll receive promotional swag from Adventure Cycling to give to your friends and family and your very own bag of Adventure Cycling gear for the ride. You’ll also receive one-on-one support from your team captain and the Adventure Cycling development department to help trouble-shoot and motivate your fundraising.
