Glacier Ride 2022 may be the best life experiences I have ever had. The park is fantastic, the guides and crew worked so hard to make it go well and were so fun to be around. I am a quiet person and everyone made me feel included. I’ve made some lifelong friends.

My first ride I did to prove I could ride 350 miles; the next one was to fundraise like crazy for my favorite nonprofit; every ride since then has been to spend time with amazing people doing great work on behalf of the climate!

Climate Ride’s combination passionate people and amazing riding creates a magical community like no other. I work in the sustainability space for my job which can be tiring, and climate ride is where I come to recharge. After each ride (I’ve done four now!) I leave feeling a sense of gratitude and fulfillment for my rider buddies what we we accomplished together.

If you’re on the fence about joining for a Climate Ride, this is your sign to do it. I thought the hills on the routes were going to kill me, but given the immense amount of support, snacks, and hydration stops everyone was able to complete their best possible rides and felt great by the end of everyday (albeit a little sore sometimes – in a good way). The crew, guides and staff take impeccable care of the riders and ensure everyone is safely having a great time. They even managed to arrange and support our group riding up Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park with no cars! King of the road! They had bike crews in front and back and still managed to give us everything we needed sans cars. It was a once in a lifetime experience. I made some new lifelong friends on this ride and will definitely be doing another Climate Ride/Hike.

If you want to cycle and socialize with like-minded environmentally conscious people, then a Climate Ride event is for you!

Completing my cross-country cycle trip, from Boston to LA, as part of a Climate Ride independent challenge, really shaped my ride in meaningful way. I had been wanting to do a cross-country ride for personal reasons, but being able to fundraise for causes that I care deeply about during my ride gave me, what felt like an elevated purpose during my journey. The Climate Ride team was also so helpful in supportive, and not only in a fundraising sense, but also a “let’s go, you got this” sense as well. As someone who has never fundraised anywhere close to as much money as I did over the course of my cross-country trip, Climate Ride gave me so many helpful tips and hints in order to fundraise effectively. It can be hard keeping up a fundraiser while actively being on a cycle tour, and their support was instrumental in helping me to continue to raise funds throughout my trip. I also felt like I got to know some of their staff after back and forth phone calls before and during my trip, which was great. My independent challenge was life-changing for me, and I look forward to joining a Climate Ride event in the future!

My Glacier Ride counts as one of my top life experiences. I believe climate change is the foundation to address most social issues. The combination of physical exercise on a bike immersed in spectacular landscape and wildlife, along people who care about the environment is a recipe for personal growth, community building, and world change. I recommend this experience for any and all who seek to make a difference and feel good about it.

Being able to participate this summer in the Glacier Climate Hike was a soul inspiring and bucket list event for me. I invited my sister to join and we both were able to push our limits and spend quality time with each other in an amazing group of people. Being able to raise money to help support organizations as they address the climate crisis is so important – – and participating helped me to better educate others to get involved as well. We all need to become engaged in helping to solve this crisis – – and the Climate Ride program is an innovative and exceptional way to do this.

Participating in a Climate Ride in 2021 was exactly the respite and recharge I needed. The scenery, singletrack, and swimming holes were amazing. Getting to know fellow Climate Riders and hearing their stories and perspectives on solutions to our climate crisis was inspiring and empowering. I can’t wait to go again!
