What Are the Routes? Are The Roads Open To The Public?

Routes turns will be marked and navigable by GPS. This is a timed event and we’ll be using a segment style timing format. You will be able to race for an overall time on all segments, or you can burn all your matches and just try and get a fastest time on a single segment while socializing and casually riding the rest of the route!

Thank you to the organizers and volunteers at Climate Ride for planning and executing an amazing, challenging, beautiful, and inspiring weekend for everyone. A year ago I wouldn’t have even dreamed that doing something like this could be a dream. I started biking last August with no real goals besides using Fremont’s [my town’s] bike lanes and maybe increasing my physical activity level. Not only have I done those things, but more than that, I’ve found something that gives me a lot of joy, helps me feel more connected to my community, and inspires me to be an active participant in making the world a better place.

Climate Ride is an incredible experience! Their dynamic activities let us support beneficiaries working to ameliorate our impact on Mother Nature while having a great time. The Climate Ride community is also working intersectionally on social justice issues through their Grants and Community Leader programs. You won’t be the same after your first Climate Ride event!

What could be better than riding with a group of pragmatic idealists who give a damn about the climate crisis while enjoying the planet they are committed to preserving? Climate Ride is the definition of pedaling with purpose!
