Climate Ride is committed to building an inclusive environmental movement, led by people with varied backgrounds and perspectives. We provide awards for community and climate leaders. These awards are given to bike coalitions and eligible organizations so that their Climate Ride teams can better represent the diversity in their communities and widen the conversation on sustainability. Awards are also directly given by Climate Ride to eligible candidates. We prioritize these awards for individuals who identify as Black, Indigenous and/or People of Color, low-income, young women, and LGBTQ+.

Through our events, our goal is to connect local leaders to new friends, fundraisers, and donors, helping to grow the movement. The larger our community is the better we all understand the intersections between environmental and other social issues.

Applications will be evaluated by a panel of Climate Ride board members, staff, and community members.

In 2022, our participants and donors have helped to fund 20 spots for Community Leaders on the Green Fondo events (these are weekend events).
