This World Bicycle Day Climate Ride is teaming up with World Bicycle Relief to celebrate the bike as a tool of empowerment. We are calling all cyclists to protect the planet and share the joy of cycling!

WBR has changed hundreds of thousands of lives by delivering bikes to over 700,000 folks in need of reliable transportation around the world. They are on the way to their goal of 1 million bikes. Many of these bikes support women in rural areas around the globe, and if you elect to fundraise on their behalf, raising just $165 will help fund a new bike for a student, healthcare worker, or entrepreneur.

Join us in taking a bike ride sometime between June 2nd and 5th with your friends, family, and community members to raise funds for all the great organizations that are doing good via the bike. Share your joy of adventure and raising funds for organizations by inviting your friends, family, bike club, pick-up soccer crew, neighbors, and whoever else you can think of to join you!

Let people know that the climate crisis matters to you and that bikes are an essential part to solving it. They can help you take action by donating or joining you for this event.

All you need to do is register and pick a bike route or indoor training challenge that inspires you. There are no boundaries to what you can do. Need ideas? Check out our past Climate Rises here.

When you register, you can select from our list of more than 125 nonprofits that do the hard work of protecting the planet.

And, it’s easy to start a team when you register. You can make this a group effort and have even more fun enrolling your friends and family on this day of action.

Why does Climate Rise matter?

Our Climate Ride participants have raised millions for climate, conservation, clean energy, and bike advocacy. These funds help drive important nonprofit work to protect the places you love. This is a chance for anyone to join the Climate Ride community for one powerful push for the planet.

Choose the nonprofits you want to support and let’s go big! Every single dollar counts.

At Climate Ride we are determined to see our grants program and its support for climate and active transportation survive and continue to thrive. Part of that effort includes keeping our community connected, growing, and learning how and where we can be a beacon of hope.

Your outreach and fundraising have profound ripple effects. Taking on this challenge is a statement about your values and your vision for our future. We welcome you!

Who are the beneficiaries?

When you register, you can choose from the more than 125 incredible beneficiary organizations in the Climate Ride 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 benefit through the Climate Ride grants program. Our beneficiaries were selected for their work on the environment, conservation, sustainability, climate education, and active transportation advocacy. We are grateful for your support!

Can I sign up my friends/family/pets?

We totally encourage you to! Please share the registration link with anyone. This is about building a community and bringing out the best in all of us.

I just heard about this but can’t sign up now. Can I do it another time?

Of course! You can sign up now and do a ride of your choice at any time you like!

Can I use Facebook fundraising?

Yes, when your register you’ll receive a fundraising page. On that page, there are steps to link up to a Facebook fundraiser. It’s important to do this through your page so that the donations are immediately counted to your fundraising total!

Do I need to sign a waiver? What are the terms and conditions?

When you register you must agree to our Release and Waiver of Liability, Assumption of Risk, Indemnity, Authorization and Parental Consent Agreement (if you are participating with a minor, please email us for the minor release of liability). You will agree during your registration.

Do you have any resources (like photos and logos) that I can use?

We sure do! Here’s a link to the resources page for this event.

Want to make one of these designs your own? Here is a Canva Template that you can update!

Partnering with Climate Ride as part of Climate Rise was an amazing and rewarding experience. Took the stress of the background work behind a fundraiser, and they were there helping and supporting along the way! Would join them again in the future. 10/10

After participating in seven Climate Ride events (eight if you count Climate Rise!) I continue to be impressed with the Climate Ride staff as well as the community of riders–I couldn’t ask to be part of a kinder, more thoughtful, and incredibly fun group of people, all brought together by our desire to combine our passions for cycling with making the world a better place.
