Help support Missoula nonprofits by joining our community bike ride!

Come join us for a local ride and help raise awareness and funds for Missoula nonprofits doing essential work for our planet!

Joining Climate Ride gives you the opportunity to reach out to friends, family, and folks in your community with a message that the health of our planet is important to you. It’s a chance to talk about climate change and bolster your spirit with collective action. It’s a chance to invite people you care about to engage in a positive way with a global issue that can feel very overwhelming. This community event is a fun way to take action for the future of our planet, and by registering for this event and fundraising for organizations working in the environmental sector here in Missoula, you’re engaging and supporting the local efforts for a safer climate for us all. Fundraising is not required to participate, however, we encourage you to do so!

Our Missoula environmental nonprofits need your help and community support – so please say YES!

This event is put on in collaboration with these wonderful environmental nonprofits in our local community:

When you register, select up to three of these beneficiaries to receive your fundraising in the form of a grant from Climate Ride!

This ride is on Sunday, October 1st, 2023. Check-in starts at 9 AM. The ride starts at 10 AM. We’ll send you more details about the route and day-of schedule after you register.

This is a ride for all ages, levels, and speeds! We will have three route options:

  • A longer route option that includes gravel (10-30 miles)
  • A medium route option with gravel as well (5-10 miles)
  • A family-friendly Climate Protector ride (5 miles or less)*

*This year, we’re joining forces with Families for a Livable Climate, and incorporating their family-friendly Climate Protector ride as the short option for this event! We invite kids and adults alike to participate by donning superhero capes and bright costumes with banners to proclaim and celebrate our collective role as “climate protectors.” Our purpose is to promote biking as a climate solution, showcase our collective commitment toward building a livable future for all, and have fun doing it! Plus, if they’re inspired, this is a great opportunity for kids to take concrete climate action by helping to raise funds in a fun way for Missoula based organizations. Here’s a chance for them to make a big difference!

All participants should arrive ready to ride between 9 AM- 9:45 AM. We’ll have a mandatory safety talk at 9:45 AM and then roll out! After the rides, there will be a fun hang with food, activities and prizes! We will share the itinerary after you register. We expect to be wrapped up around 3:00 PM. There will be limited support on this ride, so please be prepared. Bring water and what you need to fix flats. Helmets are required!

Registration for the Missoula Climate Ride is FREE. 

When you register, you will have the opportunity to kick things off with a donation and we encourage you to do so! You are provided a personal fundraising page so that you can spread the word and help raise funds. While we do not require you to fundraise to participate, we suggest trying to raise at least $100! Or, go big, and shoot for $500 or even $2,000 to earn a prize! All donations are tax-deductible. Please note that donations are not refundable.

We encourage you to get to know these Missoula beneficiaries and how your fundraising really has an impact on our community and future. Reaching out to friends and family is also an opportunity to chat about climate!
