Climate Ride Philadelphia to DC spans 280 miles and explores the heart of Pennsylvania’s Amish Country on and off quiet roads and bike trails. From the exciting trip start in Philadelphia to the triumphant arrival at the US Capitol, this Climate Ride will challenge, inspire, and surprise as you pedal and connect with thought leaders, advocates, and like-minded people dedicated to advancing sustainability.

On Climate Ride Philadelphia to DC, you’ll spend four days cycling on a scenic journey that explores the back roads of Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia and Virginia. We’ll see inspiring scenery, stay at comfortable retreats and classic summer camps, visit several well-known historic sites, and experience the thrill of touring by bicycle with a community united by their passion for sustainability, renewable energy, and bicycles – the ultimate carbon-free form of transportation.

During the trip, we’ll ride past historic buildings, family farms, quaint villages, and verdant forests. Evening programs and dynamic speakers combine with world-class cycling to make this charitable event exciting, informative, and fun.

Our professional Climate Ride volunteer staff takes care of all the details, so you can focus on riding the 40-100 miles per day of carefully-planned routes on scenic roads. It’s challenging yet achievable, and you have all day to make it to the next rest stop. Meals, snacks, bike support, luggage transport, and all of the logistics are included when you reach the fundraising commitment. On the road, the Climate Ride support team is always nearby to assist you, keep you happy and healthy, and make your ride worry-free and memorable. Bike rental options are available in Philadelphia.

You can choose from our full list of beneficiaries and proceeds will be distributed to the Climate Ride grants program based on your beneficiary selection.
