I had such an incredible adventure with Climate Ride at the Rogue River. The trail we traveled was so beautiful, it was idyllic. All the logistics were taken care of, and the food was terrific! The rafting company chose the most magnificent locations for our tents and provided everything we needed to enjoy ourselves at the end of the day. Climate Ride brought together an inspirational group of people to run (and walk) and getting to know the other participants was a highlight of the trip. All and all, a fantastic run! I can’t wait to sign up for another Climate Ride experience!

The Climate Ride in Bear’s Ears National Monument was one of the best trips I’ve ever been on! Everybody who participates in the ride is really passionate about climate advocacy and it is a great opportunity to meet life-long friends from all walks of life.

Not sure I want to write a testimonial, purely for selfish reasons. I’d hate to see the event fill up before I get a chance to register and get left out. … I guess that’s my testimonial :).

When my son and daughter-in-law invited me to participate in the Climate Ride and raise money to support energy/sustainability/biking & transportation and Bike Santa Cruz County, it was easy to say yes. However, when the reality of cycling almost 350 miles and close to 17,000 feet of climbing hit, my fear and anxiety increased. At 67 years old, I am in good shape and cycle 3 times a week but I couldn’t help but question if that was enough. I am pleased to say that the support of the Climate Ride staff and the participants may this challenging ride not only possible but enjoyable. It will go down as one of the most amazing trips of my life. Thank you!

Participating in the Climate Ride was the perfect way to educate and immerse myself deeper into current environmental issues. On this ride I was surrounded by an incredible group of supportive and inspirational people – participants and staff alike. The community paired with challenging, but rewarding climbs and views made for a life-changing and memorable experience. 10/10 would recommend to everyone I know!

CLIMATE RIDE has been the single most effective way for my friends & I to get involved & step up awareness & advocacy about climate change. It has really helped to change & align priorities. Additionally, by cheering me on through the ride and my daily posts, folks felt positively inspired that their contributions mattered.
As a newcomer to cycling, CLIMATE RIDE was a wonderful activity that helped me succeed. Extremely well organized we had great food, campgrounds, friendly bike mechanics, phone charging stations, & water & snack breaks in the most beautiful settings. Each day brought new spectacular sights including strawberry fields, deer, sea lions, hawks, meadows of wildflowers and redwood, crashing waves and horizons that stretched forever.

Not just an event that yielded $350k+ in donations for climate action and active transportation. This was also the best vacation of my year, giving me some of the most memorable rides of California that I have done, inspiration from the great people around me and a super professional organization end-to-end, including excellent meals and logistics.

Phenomenal! Climate Ride is a tremendously professional, organized and competent organization (and personable, easy-going, and inspiring). That’s all the more impressive given how small it is – a few visionary, exceedingly capable, and engaging people, who have earned the respect of partners large and small, who make this an outstanding experience in every way. The scenery is breathtaking, and I particularly appreciated being in a smaller national park (i.e., not yet overrun by tourists). The cause was kept front and center in such meaningful, personal, and impactful ways. Glacier Guides are real pros, inspiring environmentalists and educators, and took care of our needs so wonderfully! And the evening speakers absolutely made this experience as unique and profound as it was – definitely a highlight in a trip FILLED with powerful elements.
