This September, a 6-person team dubbed the “Ocean Riders” are taking on the challenge of Climate Ride Northeast, pedaling 390 miles from Bar Harbor, Maine to Boston. Their efforts will support an ocean-focused organization, Marine Applied Research and Exploration (MARE). MARE has been a Climate Ride beneficiary since 2013 and is led by Founder and Executive Director Dirk Rosen, who is a soon to be 4-time Climate Rider.

Here's a look at a few of the bicycle coalitions that have teams on Climate Ride events.
