Joshua Tree & Anza-Borrego Ride

Known for its towering boulder piles and the twisty, spiky trees that speckle its landscape, Joshua Tree sits where the high Mojave Desert meets the lower Colorado Desert. Then on to Anza-Borrego, where jagged spires, desert flora, and endangered bighorn sheep await.

Expect majestic views, heart-pumping ascents and time out of the saddle to immerse ourselves in the landscape. This is an ideal winter ride for intermediate to experienced cyclists, and with an e-bike rental, we can make the climbs achievable for newer riders too. This is full five days of cycling with hotels at night.

Proceeds benefit our grants program and you can choose beneficiaries when you register.

What does my fundraising support, and why is it so important?

Cyclists can choose from the more than 100 incredible beneficiary organizations in our network! One of the things that make Climate Ride such an effective charitable event is that you can select the organization(s) you wish to fundraise for from our extensive list of beneficiary organizations. Our beneficiaries were selected for their work on the environment, conservation, sustainability, climate education, and active transportation advocacy. At the end of the year, Climate Ride grants the proceeds from our events to these hard-working organizations.

Your camaraderie and support moved me even more than the stunning views of Death Valley. As this was my first ride with a group, I really didn’t know what to expect. I was concerned that my slow pace would annoy others, and that I would feel ostracized.

Instead, your authentic camaraderie and support was an incredible relief to me. Indeed, it moved me even more than the stunning views of Death Valley. Now I find myself looking affectionately at our group picture and missing each of you terribly! Woa! What an incredible experience!

I’m sure that the support I’ve gotten from you and others has helped me fight cancer and enjoy life in a profound way. This connection is the coolest thing of all.

I’ve enjoyed bike touring trips in the past, but Climate Ride stands out for its ability to attract groups of riders who see biking as more than a recreational activity. It was great to ride with people who see biking as a way to protect the environment and to share other ways that we all strive to fight climate change.
