Community Leader Awards

Climate Ride is committed to building an inclusive environmental & active transportation movement, led by people with varied backgrounds and perspectives. Since 2016, we have provided over 100 awards (scholarship spots) in Climate Ride events. These awards are given to individuals and also to bike coalitions and eligible organizations so that their Climate Ride teams can represent the diversity in their communities and widen the conversation on sustainability. 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 are evaluated by a panel of Climate Ride board members, staff, and community members, or nominated by our participating beneficiaries.

If you are interested in a Community Leader Award, please fill out the application here. All Community Leader Awards for 2024 are currently filled. We may have some spots open, so please check back later if you are interested in joining us on in 2024.  

We are very grateful to the Annual Fund donors who make these awards possible.
